We are excited to be the US agent for Christopher Matthew's latest book, Dog Treats: An Assortment of Mutts, Mongrels, Puppies and Pooches (Little, Brown UK, 2014). Illustrated by Tony Ross, the book is a new collection of witty verse and drawings celebrating man's best friend. Exuberant, rear-fixated puppies and Hollywood fashion accessory pets mingle with world-weary but dignified strays, war-heroes, a psychotic Great Dane called Cher Bebe, and a spaniel of distinguished theatrical lineage. 
Christopher Matthew is the author of 17 commercially published books and the bestselling author of  Now We are Sixty (John Murray, UK)   

A Warm Welcome to Our New Author!
