Great news for cat lovers and book lovers! Welcome Home, Bernard Socks, the sequel to The Story of Fester Cat will be released this week. The second installation in Paul Magrs’ series about the cats in his life (and we want more!) is titled Welcome Home, Bernard Socks. It tells the story of a family reinvented after loss. Those left behind must pick up the pieces and go on, but how? Getting a new cat after Fester dies feels like a betrayal but living without a cat is impossible. And so Paul and Jeremy take the big plunge and find that instead of losing their old cat in the mix of the new, all memories have been incorporated into the present. And who knows what the future will bring? Plenty of adventures, some heartache, but through it all generous servings of love, humor, and compassion. And that is just on the part of Bernard Socks, cat extraordinaire! The humans in the story have plenty to offer and so does Fester, for the best news of all is that Fester is still around, keeping watch on the family from the heavens above.
The Story of Fester Cat has taken its place on the bookshelves (permanent collection!) of everyone who cherishes their connections with pets, lovers, music, books, and family. Now make room on the shelf for Welcome Home, Bernard Socks.
