  1. Hi, Man; We found your review of our book, The Kitnapped Creature, via a google alert. We're glad to hear your son enjoys Jack's stories. There's a spin off series called PET VET which stars Preacher's sister, Trump. If you're interested in finding out a bit more about Jack and Trump, check out the Jack Russell home page at http://www.jackrusselldogdetective.com . It lists the books in reading order.
