The incredible story of a rescue dog, and how our dogs rescue us

By Mikael Lindnord and Val Hudson

  • Hardback
  • £14.99

The continued adventures of the rescue dog that inspired the world - the sequel to the international bestseller, ARTHUR

'A shaggy dog story with a lovely happy ending' - BBC Breakfast on Arthur

THE SEQUEL TO THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER ARTHUR

Three years ago, Mikael Lindnord met a scruffy, plucky stray dog on an adventure race in Ecuador. Despite illness and injury the dog followed Mikael for hundreds of miles, and eventually he took him home to Sweden to be part of the family. He named him Arthur.

Arthur & Friends is the story of what happened next, from Arthur's first Christmas, to book tours to London and around Europe, to a terrifying bout of illness and new races and adventures. Interspersed with this are heart-warming readers' stories of their own rescue dogs, from Afghanistan to Australia, and everywhere in between.

Uplifting, gripping and moving in equal measure, Arthur & Friends is the inspirational story of how a little kindness can go a very, very long way.

READERS' PRAISE FOR ARTHUR: the dog who crossed the jungle to find a home

'This book is just un-putdownable! For any dog lover it is a must-read and brings a tear to the eye.'

'One of the best books I have read in a long time'

'Absolutely amazing story, very moving'

Biographical Notes

Mikael Lindnord (Author)
Mikael Lindnord is an adventure racer and race planner. As a boy he wanted to be an ice hockey player, but failing to make a professional team at the age of 17 set him on a different path. After doing military service he became an adventure racer and has been travelling the world and racing in the AR World Series ever since. When not racing he lives with his wife, children and, of course, his dog Arthur.

Arthur is a mongrel from somewhere in Ecuador. He likes meatballs, long runs with Mikael and relaxing with his family in Sweden.

As an editor of non-fiction at major publishing houses, Val Hudson published many ground-breaking bestsellers. Now a full-time writer, she is the author of a wide range of non-fiction and, as Chloe Bennet, the 'Boywatching' series of novels for young teens..

Once there, the orphans' lives change tracks: Marty throws himself into academic life; Liz is drawn to dark forms of escapism; and Jules transforms from a vivacious child to a withdrawn teenager.

And then I met Alva.The only one who can bring him out of his shell is his mysterious classmate Alva, who hides a dark past of her own, but despite their obvious love for one another, the two leave school on separate paths. Our last meeting suddenly felt like yesterday again, except that yesterday was many years ago. Years later, just as it seems that they can make amends for time wasted, the past catches up with them, and fate - or chance - will once again alter the course of a life.

FROM THE STAR of the award-winning BBC sitcom Miranda, comes Miranda Hart's hilarious account of life with her beloved dog Peggy, a gorgeous white bichon frise.'Hilariously funny and often moving memoir ... we loved every word *****' Heat'Open, honest ... her misadventures are hilariously described ... charming and funny' Daily Express* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *Hello dear book browser and welcome to Peggy & Me, the story of my life since getting a beautiful Shih-Tzu Bichon Frise cross puppy (I call the breed a Shitty Frise - fun) in the form of Peggy.Some of you may be thinking: "a book about a dog, how totally brilliant, I need hear no more, I'm sold." In which case we should be best friends and go out to tea together, every day.Others of you may be thinking: "a book about a dog, how totally mad, she must have officially lost it." In which case I completely understand. For I once viewed dog owners with much suspicion. The way they obsessively talk about their dogs often using voices for them to reply; the way they have a light covering of dog hair all over their clothes and sofas; and worse, an alarming comfort and ease around excrement. But I now get why people become so mad about their hounds. It wasn't instant love I have to admit. Getting a puppy when I was at a low ebb in my life wasn't easy - there was a lot of challenging, what I call, dog administration (dog-min), and the humiliating first trip to the vet still haunts me. It's been a bumpy old road, but Peggy has been lovingly by my side through some life-changing moments and I wouldn't have coped without her. Most surprisingly she has taught me a huge amount - not how to get an old pie packet out of a bin and lick it (I could already do that), but real lessons about life and love and trust and friendship. Put aside any doggy reservations and come walkies with Peggy and me ...
