From one of Britain's best-loved comedians comes this wonderfully funny, sharp and touching memoir and a celebration of the bond between man and dog - an autobidography, if you will. The Lick of Love takes us on a tour of Julian's colourful life - and wherever life has taken him, Julian has had a dog by his side. Fanny the Wonder Dog propelled him up the ranks of the alternative comedy circuit and onto television. Valerie, the whippet cross-breed escorted Julian through his forties, the Germaine Greer to his Bernard Manning. Albert was sent to acclimatise Julian to middle age and helped him get his now husband, before being joined by naughty but nice Gigi. These canine characters have been there, bearing witness, on and off stage. Ultimately, The Lick of Love is the story of a fascinating life and a love letter to the dogs that have played a loving and near constant part of it. Told with humour and great honesty, this promises to be one of the best memoirs of the year.

It has been 30 years since Noel Fitzpatrick graduated as a veterinary surgeon, and that 22-year-old from Ballyfin, Ireland, is now one of the leading veterinary surgeons in the world. Noel has treated thousands of animals - many of whom were thought to be beyond help - animals that have changed his life, and the lives of those around them, for the better. In How Animals Saved My Life, Noel shares the moving and often funny stories of the animals he's treated and the unique 'animal people' he has met along the way. He reflects on the valuable lessons of Integrity, Care, Love and Hope that they have taught him - lessons that have sustained him through the unbelievable highs and crushing lows of a profession where lives are quite literally at stake. As Noel explores what makes us connect with animals so deeply, we meet Peanut, the world's first cat with two front bionic limbs; eight-year-old therapy dachschund Olive; Odin, a gorgeous five-year-old Dobermann, who would prove to be one of Noel's most challenging cases - and of course his beloved companions Ricochet, the Maine Coon, and Keira, the scruffy Border terrier who is always by his side.

An Eye-Opening Exposé of What Your Cat Does When You're Not There... In arguably the greatest, most enlightening discovery since the Rosetta Stone, cat ambassador Gemma Correll has managed to get hold of the secret diary of Tiddles, a three-year-old moggy, which she has transcribed and illustrated in order to explain to cat owners across the globe what their pet gets up to when left to its own devices. By reading through Tiddles' journal, many of those great unanswered questions you have about your cat's life will be answered, like what does he does for hours on end when he crawls under the bed just as you leave for work or where has she been when she barges her way through the cat flap and into the kitchen, yowling for attention? It's a true insight into the secret world of cats and a must-have, eye-opening read for any cat owner.

Join Barnaby the labrador and Villager Jim as they meet their animal friends. Barnaby has many friends, both at his home and in the beautiful Peak District countryside surrounding it. First there are Dilly and Bumble, his labrador “sisters”, then there’s Bobbin the Robin who visits the bird table every day. The friendly dogs he meets on his walk are always interested in what he has to say, but the deer steer clear of him, even though he’s on the lead. The Highland cattle that belong to dad’s friend are just a little bit scary – those long horns, all that hair – but the chickens are always up for a game of “chase me”. His owner, award-winning photographer Villager Jim, captures these meetings on camera, allowing us all into Barnaby's world.
