James officially launched his book on Thursday 14th June at Clarendon Leisure Centre in Salford, the same day as the book was printed.
161 pupils were in attendance from Lark Hill Primary, The Willows, Summerville Primary, Cadishead Primary, St Sebastian’s RC Primary and St Pauls.
Written by James Campbell and illustrated by Rob Jones, the book is filled with outrageous facts, hilarious jokes, insanely funny online videos and brilliant stories all about pets, the author, and all sorts of other things.
Says James Campbell:
‘Pets are brilliant. They come in different shapes and sizes. Some are furry. Some are scary. Some are so small you can hold them in one hand. Others are twice the size of you and if they sit on you there is a danger you will burst.
Some pets are useful and can fetch things, help people and even have jobs! Other pets just sit around all day doing nothing or, worse still, go behind your wardrobe and do a secret poo. “
Emily Stock, Schools’ Library Service Co-ordinator, said:
‘We are delighted that James wanted to work with Salford Community Leisure on his latest book launch. The children loved meeting him and he was very funny.”
