Paws and Whiskers

Jacqueline Wilson, Philip Pullman, Malorie Blackman, Patrick Ness. The ultimate pet story anthology. The greatest children’s authors in existence, celebrating animals. Fiction with the purest pedigree. A brand new story by Jacqueline Wilson, called Leonie’s Pet Cat. Extracts from treasured classics. Stories from today’s top writers, like Anne Fine and Patrick Ness. Plus personal new pieces from Michael Morpurgo, Philip Pullman and Malorie Blackman, talking about their own pets. One last thing: this book raises money for the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home. We can’t wait to get our paws on it.

    I have borrowed this book from the library and I especially like the story called Varjak Paw in it. I also loved reading leonie’s pet cat because It’s a family book that anyone can read. I would really recomend it to you.
