Who Wrote It?

Welcome to the world of award winning author, story-teller & musician Gareth P. Jones: a world of Ninja Meerkats, Steampunk Pirates, dragon detectives, murderous twins, dark family secrets, bureaucratic ghosts, Victorian illusionists, dinosaur parties, time travel mysteries, funky ukuleles, sinister accordions, alien-fighting pets, death and ice cream.

Before becoming a published author, Gareth worked in TV, on shows such as The Big Breakfast and Richard & Judy. He spent some time making television programmes about crime authors such as Ian Rankin, P D James, Ruth Rendell, Val McDermid and Colin Dexter.

Gareth now divides his time between writing books, visiting schools, performing at festivals and sometimes he works on TV programmes. When he’s not doing these things he can be found hanging out with his wife Lisa and children, Herbie and Autumn, or playing the slightly ludicrous number of stringed instruments in his front room

What's It About?

Pet Defenders are secret agents with a difference. It's up to Mitzy and Biskit to save the world from alien invasions - just so long as they can stop fighting like cat and dog for long enough to do it! Secret agent Biskit is not happy when he discovers his new partner Mitzy is a cat - everyone knows that cats and dogs don't mix. But saving the earth from alien invasions must come first and the planet is under attack! A cluster of cow pats has flown into town and they're whipping up a stink... It's time for Biskit and Mitzy to put aside their differences.

Ruairi from Immaculate heart of Mary :

It was a goodish book because I liked the meaning of the book but I would have liked there to be more aliens and I didn't really like Commander F because he was really mean and he was lazy and bossy.

Ben from Oulton Primary School:

It was actually really good. The front cover looked a bit boring but when you got to the middle of the book there was a lot of action. The characters were quite funny - the big rabbit!. The cat and dog, didn't get along at first but that soon changed.

Ana Maria from Southroyd Primary School:

A mysterious book.I would only say have better vocabulary.

Holly from Southroyd Primary:

I liked this book quite a lot however it would be better if it had better vocabulary to make it more interesting and more exiting. I could have never thought of this plot, though.It was very imaginative and I liked the way it had the Pet Defenders to protect the city from the ravenous space dung beetle.

yusuf from Whinmoor ST Pauls C of E Primary School:

I loved this adventurous story. It was amazing that he jumped of a cliff. This book was hilarious.As I am a cub I love adventure stories and this was the best I have read so far.

Maisy from Southroyd primary and nursery school :

I think this book had a interesting plot to it however i think an improvement would needed such as higher level vocabulary since the words are quite easy to read and understand. I thought the end was quite effective though because you don't want it to end.

Patrick from Whinmoor St Paul's C of E Primary School:

This book is amazing apart from the dung part! It is also funny and it teaches you a lot about how clever pets are and that sometimes they are needed to save your life.

Francesca from Whinmoor St Paul's C of E Primary School:

I thought the book was quite funny and it was even disgusting in some parts! My favourite character was Biscuit the dog because he is very funny. I would recommend this book to my class friends.

Dylan from Southroyd Primary School:

I think the funniest part of the book was when Biskit met the cow and the cow named all the poo. When I saw the front cover I could kind of guess what the book was about.

Madi from Whinmoor St Puals:

This book was interesting and very funny. I enjoyed it and loved the content of adventure. Since I am a Cub I truly know the meaning of challenge and for Mitsy and Biskit they had a huge challenge to complete. I would recommend this book for 5-10 year olds because of the humour and is extremely interesting I think Gareth P.Jones spent loads of time on this amazing book so he deserves to win this wonderful award.

Benjamin from Whinmoor St Pauls:

This exciting,fabulous and super book is extremely funny and exciting. My favourite character is most definitely Biscuit as he is very funny and is really silly from jumping off cliffs and just running into a bin. I love that it is animals rescuing people not the other way round and I love the forget me plop.This book is definitely worth 5 STARS!!!!!
