The very special, sold-out premiere of Jacqueline Wilson’s new book Paws and Whiskers took place on the 15th of February in London! At this fun-filled launch event, fans met dogs from Battersea Dogs and Cats Home and of course listened to Jacqueline Wilson herself talking about her own cats and her new book. The event was hosted by the young, talented Laura Dockrill.

Paws and Whiskers is published in association with Battersea Dogs and Cats Home who came along to introduce some of their residents and tell some wonderful stories. The audience was charmed by a very happy puppy on stage.

Jacqueline spoke about her new book and about Jacob and Lily who she adopted from Battersea Dogs and Cats home. She also answered many questions from the audience. Fans were sent home with amazing Paws and Whiskers goodie bags filled with treats.

Jacqueline Wilson’s tour continued with a 900-seat event at the Imagine Festival on London’s Southbank. She has also spoken at events at Jarrolds in Norwich, The Book Nook in Hove and she will be speaking at the Chorleywood Bookshop in Chorleywood this weekend.

To celebrate the new book we’ve built a new Jacqueline Wilson Pet Sanctuary in the townscape on the Jacqueline Wilson website! New animal activities will become available every couple of days so keep visiting!
