The follow-up to the bestselling Texts From Dog

Dog is back - the Bark Knight has risen. Unfortunately for weary owner October Jones (but luckily for us), that means there is a brand new selection of the funniest, most bizarre texts from his insane canine companion. There is also the welcome return of Batdog and CatCat (half cat, half cat), and a new 'friend' in Benedict, the creepiest pug in the world.

Biographical Notes

Joe Butcher (October Jones) was born and raised in Birmingham, England. Ironically, he spent most of his childhood terrified of dogs.
Joe developed a keen interest in visual storytelling at school, and he attended the University of Wolverhampton where he came away with a shiny first class degree in animation.
Joe eventually landed a job at a small media company in Derby, where to this day he designs learning software for kids.
He has recently worked on animation projects for the BBC, as well as doing music videos for UK comedy band 'The Amateur Transplants'
Despite being almost 30 years old, Joe has wonderful Lego Star Wars collection and no girlfriend. These two facts are not connected. He currently lives in Stourbridge with his bulldog 'Cooper'.

As they await help, they start talking... The brief time they spend together leaves a mark. And as their lives take them to Edinburgh and San Francisco, to Prague and to Portland they can't shake the memory of the time they shared. Postcards cross the globe when they themselves can't, as Owen and Lucy experience the joy - and pain - of first love. And as they make their separate journeys in search of home, they discover that sometimes it is a person rather than a place that anchors you most in the world.

John Kv Eunson

John Kv Eunson

So, you thought you knew everything you needed to about Scotland and its chequered history? Well, think again. Did you know that tobacco made up half of Scotland's exports in the eighteenth century? Did you know that JM Barrie created the name 'Wendy' for his play Peter Pan in 1904, meaning that there are no Wendys over the age of 104...? Did you know that The Beatles played at Dingwall Town Hall in 1963? See? John KV Eunson leads us through the history of the Scots in this accurate but none-too-heavy look at the great country. On a journey of almost breakneck speed full of chuckles, we still have enough time to stop and smell the heather, taste the fudge and feel the ghosties.
