Sarah Odedina has bought UK rights in Andy Mulligan's latest book 'Dog'. She says
'This is a truly original book that will win readers over with its wonderful wit, clever structure, fast paced adventure but most of all its tender exploration of the love that exists between friends and family.'
Andy is a winner of the Guardian Childrens Fiction prize and has been shortlisted for the Carnegie. He also writes adult drama for radio, his most recent being the three part 'School Drama' on Radio 4 and starring Tom Hollander

Tiddy Rowan's 'Little Book of Mindfulness' sold 200,000 copies and this latest book published on Thursday by Piatkus could not be more needed or more relevant. So many people are so frightened at the direction the world is taking and this book is full of such sanity and wisdom - do read it.

So very sad to hear yesterday that Gillon, simply the best agent in the world and a generous, witty, wise man who gave me my start in publishing died yesterday. I was his rather bolshy secretary in the 1970s - fresh out of university and ostentatiously unable to do shorthand. Gillon said that he always wrote very short letters and that he would tell me what he wanted to say and why and then I could write them. Was that all right? Could anyone have a more delightful boss? I learnt so much from him - he was a brilliant chess player and he was always three moves ahead of everyone else in business. He would be surprised to know how very deeply his towering. elegant ;presence will be missed.
