'A shaggy dog story with a lovely happy ending' - BBC Breakfast on Arthur
THE SEQUEL TO THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER ARTHUR
Three years ago, Mikael Lindnord met a scruffy, plucky stray dog on an adventure race in Ecuador. Despite illness and injury the dog followed Mikael for hundreds of miles, and eventually he took him home to Sweden to be part of the family. He named him Arthur.
Arthur & Friends is the story of what happened next, from Arthur's first Christmas, to book tours to London and around Europe, to a terrifying bout of illness and new races and adventures. Interspersed with this are heart-warming readers' stories of their own rescue dogs, from Afghanistan to Australia, and everywhere in between.
Uplifting, gripping and moving in equal measure, Arthur & Friends is the inspirational story of how a little kindness can go a very, very long way.

Mikael Lindnord (Author)
Mikael Lindnord is an adventure racer and race planner. As a boy he wanted to be an ice hockey player, but failing to make a professional team at the age of 17 set him on a different path. After doing military service he became an adventure racer and has been travelling the world and racing in the AR World Series ever since. When not racing he lives with his wife, children and, of course, his dog Arthur.
Arthur is a mongrel from somewhere in Ecuador. He likes meatballs, long runs with Mikael and relaxing with his family in Sweden.
