Introducing Ian Cox, Author of the 'Rafferty Roo and Hobson Too' series!

Ian Cox’s working life was spent with children and young people in schools as a teacher and headteacher. While he spent most of his time in a school setting, his 'walking life' was spent with dogs and his imagination. On his walks, Ian would often wonder: what if we could communicate with dogs? What would they say to us? Could we join in with their world?


Then, one day, a mysterious voice in Ian’s head told him some stories about two dogs, a young boy and a farm...Ian decided to turn these stories into books.
