'A shaggy dog story with a lovely happy ending' - BBC Breakfast on Arthur THE SEQUEL TO THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER ARTHUR Arthur and Friends is the continued adventures of Arthur, the plucky, scruffy stray dog from Ecuador who followed his owner Mikael through the jungle to find his forever home. From Arthur's first Christmas in Sweden and trips to London, to a terrifying bout of illness and family camping adventures, Arthur and Friends is the next gripping, uplifting chapter of Arthur and Mikael's story. Interspersed with this narrative are heart-warming, moving readers' stories of their own rescue dogs. From Ecuador to America to Australia and everywhere in between, the stories of these other 'Arthurs' prove both that dogs are man's best friend, and that a little kindness can go a very long way.

Inspired by the unconditional love of pets, PetRescue brings us great stories of animals that have changed lives. From cats and dogs to guinea pigs and horses, this is about all creatures great and small and the joy they can bring their two-legged friends. All pets are blessed with a natural ability to bring joy to our lives in their own special way. Some inspire us with extraordinary acts of bravery and courage. Some amaze us with their incredible talents. But for the most part, they win and warm our hearts with their unconditional love. Unconditional Love collects stories from all corners of Australia in celebration of the all-round awesomeness of pets. Meet Mate, the horse that was rescued at the last minute from the knackery, Python the guinea pig that escaped from the jaws of a snake, Earl the staffy that survived a hit-and-run accident and Speckles the cat that mothered all the kittens at the shelter but remained unloved herself until she was adopted by a family with a problem cat. These are amazing animal tales of resilience, courage and true companionship.

'Dad walked determinedly down the path, joined by two neighbours with five children between them. As we reached the corner of Kent Avenue, I looked back for one last wave. But Mum had buried her head in her pinny and it was a year before I saw her again.' In June 1940, 10-year-old Pam Hobbs and her sister Iris took the long journey from their council home in Leigh-on-Sea to faraway rural Derbyshire. Living away from Mum and Dad for two long years, Pam was moved between four foster homes. In some she and Iris found a second family, with babies to look after, car rides and picnics, and even a pet pig. But other billets took a more sinister turn, as the adults found it easy to exploit the children in their care. Returning to Essex, things would never be the same again, and the war was far from over. Making do with rations, dodging bombs and helping with the war effort, Pam and her family struggled to get by. In Don't Forget to Write, with warmth and vivid detail, Pam describes a time that was full of overwhelming hardship and devastation; yet also of kindness and humour, resilience and courage.
