Pugs Are GO!


The new Reeve & McIntyre book Pugs of the Frozen North will be scampering into a bookshop near you soon. (The official publication date is 3rd September, but it’s already on sale in some shops.) And this weekend McIntyre and I scampered into the Edinburgh International Book Festival to try out our new Pugs stage show…


It’s our most elaborate yet, featuring sketches, a new song which we can almost play, readings, audience participation, a snowball fight, a giant board game, and NO YETIS…

It seemed to go down well in Edinburgh (thanks for coming, if you were in the audience!). If you’re in central London and would like to see it for yourself, we’ll be at the Guardian Children’s Book Festival in King’s Cross this coming weekend (Saturday 29th August). And if you’re not in central London, we’ll be racing all over the country in September and October, with stops at Bath, Cheltenham, Manchester and other venues yet-to-be-announced… More details here.  And if you’d like to knit your own pug, there’s a pattern here!

Pugs of the Frozen North


The new Reeve & McIntyre book, Pugs of the Frozen North, will be racing into bookshops any minute now, and Sarah and I are busy preparing for some publicity events. This coming Saturday we’ll be at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, where you can see us in the Baillie Gifford Corner Theatre, Charlotte Square, at 12.15pm. We’re planning songs, snowballs, and an interactive pug-racing game. Book tickets here!

Then, the following weekend, we’ll be performing free in a teepee as part of the inaugural Guardian Children’s Book Festival in London’s King’s Cross. Details here…

There will be lots more Pugs events in September, and I’ll also be doing some Railhead things, mostly in the west country, in October and November. More details to follow, but for Reeve and McIntyre-related shenanigans you can always keep an eye on the events section of Sarah’s website.
