Pug is exactly the kind of hero young children happily identify with: he’s a good friend, sometimes bemused by the grown-up world but a quick learner, and always at the centre of the action. In this story Lady Miranda and he swap a hobby horse for the real thing and before he knows it, Pug is competing at show-jumping (totally accidentally), and developing his cowboy skills including lassoing. It makes for a very enjoyable story and Pug is super-cute in his Stetson in the lovely illustrations. The story is full of incident and surprises with the central friendship between Pug and Miranda the glue that holds it together. ~ Andrea Reece
Pug and his faithful companion, Lady Miranda, are going to be cowboys for the day - and first of all they're going horsetrading! But with their noble steed Horsey safely acquired, it's not long before they find themselves on the wrong side of the law. Can Pug the reluctant hero overcome his fears and save the day once more?

Laura James’ love of storytelling began at an early age and led her to undertake a degree in Film Studies and an MA in Writing for Young People at Bath Spa University. The Adventures of Pug are based on the antics of her own very silly dogs, Brian and Florence. Together the three of them live in a tiny cottage just outside of Bath where they have lots of adventures and eat lots of jam tarts – all in the name of research of course! Laura’s first book, Captain Pug, was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children&...More About Laura James
