Vale of Glamorgan, United Kingdom (PRWEB) August 12, 2014
Author Nicholas Nurston returns with the follow-up to “The Adventures of Smoky: It’s a Cat’s Life.” His new book, “The Further Adventures of Smoky” (published by Xlibris UK), follows the rollicking good times of the eponymous cat, as well as his interactions with the humans around him.
Smoky is an inquisitive and particularly independent cat that lives in the picturesque Vale of Glamorgan. In the story, we follow Smoky’s dealings with the people around him – including the elderly lady and gentleman he adopted, a boastful wildlife warden, and two television characters from the television series “Gavin and Stacy.”
Using a captivating narrative and vibrant illustrations, Nurston takes readers on adventures through the countryside and beaches of the Bristol Channel, the historical Flat Holm Island, and finally to the story’s delightful ending. Smoky, according to Nurston, is based on a real-life pet cat that he and his wife adopted.
“The Further Adventures of Smoky” will be enjoyed by animal lovers and owners of cats, as well as readers who enjoy stories with a precocious title character.
