Meet The Dog Detectives and their furry friends!

Authors, Fin & Zoa have cycled over 25,000km around Europe and across the breadth of America with their two dogs, Jack and Paco.

During their travels they have also found the time to write three children’s picture books in their Dog Detectives Series – An Outback Odyssey, Great Grizzly North and Lost in London

Now they are cycling around the UK on a nine week book tour which started on 19th July in Portsmouth. Fin and Zoa are now on their way around the country and on Thursday 8th September at 4.15pm, they will be arriving in Southfields to visit The Golden Treasury! Fin and Zoa, with Jack and Paco of course, will be reading from their books, introducing the two dogs to the audience, as well as sharing exciting stories from their travels!

This promises to be a really special and exciting event, and we really hope you can make it! The event is FREE, but booking is essential due to limited space. Call or email the shop to book a place. Age range 3-8.
