Local author Heather Kerridge will launch a next book titled ‘Precious Pets’ a sequel to her previous book ‘Touching Tales’.

In this new book, there are twenty-five stories about pets. Many of the people who have contributed stories are local people in Inverell.

The animals include dogs, cats, kangaroos, lambs, birds, a horse, and even a baby bull. There are light-hearted stories of fun as well as profound stories that will touch the hearts of many.

The RSPCA representative in Inverell has contributed seven heart-warming stories about animals in need of a loving new home.

Every story is accompanied by photos, which make this an easy, pleasant read for any age.

The stories would be excellent to be read by an adult, to young children.

Every story is true, and depicts pets with delightful attributes, that give their owners much joy.

Heather has received wonderful encouragement from her family and friends, and especially from her son Jeremie, who worked on the cover, the setting up of the book and many of the photos.

Readers will discover how a mother bird chose to deal with the problem of her baby bird that couldn’t fly.
