The Adventures of Angus Macdonald set to release on Tuesday, October 17, 2023 and is be available where books are sold.

Meet Angus MacDonald, the world’s most witty and disgruntled Scottish Terrier. Angus takes center stage in this lovely little gift book by Lisa Child Hughes. A well-loved character first conceived of in the nineties, Angus was introduced to the world in the Toronto newspaper, Urban Pets. Angus’s stories will appeal to all ages, but will be especially resonant with dog lovers. An ode to the classic stories of James Herriot or Charles Schulz, the book’s illustrations and tone will delight and entertain. You can also follow Angus on Instagram @angusmacsbook.

A portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to Sheba’s Haven Dog Rescue, an organization in Kingston, Ontario which rescues palliative dogs with life-limiting non-curative illnesses so that they can live out their lives in a well balanced, caring environment.

To celebrate the launch, Pownal Street Press and author, Lisa Childs Hughes, invite dog lovers and book readers to a virtual launch of The Adventures of Angus MacDonald on November 8, 2023 at 7:00pm EST. 

Hosted by Pownal Street Press, Founder, Mo Duffy Cobb, it will be a wonderful event to celebrate Angus’ publishing debut. More event details can be found here.
