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.

I suppose it’s safe now to fess up and say that James Bigglesworth (‘Biggles’ to his friends and colleagues) was more than just a fictional hero to me when I was 11. Curled up in an armchair reading his adventures, I wanted to be part of Biggles’ crew, to be there when he saved the day (again), or rescued pals Algy, Bertie and Ginger from whatever dire peril they had been landed in (usually by Biggles or Air Commodore Raymond). But most of all, I wanted to fly, to be a pilot.
