Went to London, Took the Dog: A Diary : From the prize-winning author of Love, Nina

Nina Stibbe

Our Bookclub Book of the Month for November.
Join the author for our Bookclub Meeting on Monday 4th December.

‘A unique comic voice, endlessly funny’ – David Nicholls

Twenty years after leaving London, Nina Stibbe is back in town with her dog, Peggy. Together they take up lodging in the house of writer Deborah (Debby) Moggach in Camden for ‘a year-long sabbatical’. It’s a break from married life back in Cornwall, or even perhaps a fresh start altogether.

Debby does not have many demands – only to water the garden, watch for toads, and defrost the odd pie – so Nina is free to explore the city she once called home. Between scrutinising her son’s online dating developments, navigating the politics of the local pool, and taking detergent advice at the laundrette, this diary of a sixty-year-old runaway reunites us with the inimitable voice of Love, Nina, as the writer becomes, as she puts it, ‘a proper adult’ at last.

‘An utter, UTTER treat! It was like spending time with my most clever, insightful, funny, FUNNY friend’ – Marian Keyes



Tom Fletcher

SIGNED COPIES – Whilst Stocks Last

The Christmasaurus is back and ready to soar into a new festive magical adventure!

Have you ever heard of Ebenezer Scrooge? The most miserly, miserable Christmas-hating miser from that very famous old book? The man who is more BAH HUMBUG than HO HO HO?

Well, what if I told you that he was about to step out of HIS story and into this one? And I’m afraid he’s got some grand plans . . .

he wants to CANCEL CHRISTMAS! But don’t panic – William Trundle and his very best friend, the Christmasaurus, are on the case. They’re determined to track down Scrooge and save Christmas from total Scrooge-ification! And they’re not alone; the whole Trundle family, William’s new friends Eddie and Lucy and, of course, Santa himself are here to help!

Can this Christmas crew stop Scrooge before it’s too late and Christmas is BAH HUMBUGGED for good?
