Welbeck Publishing Group has entered a two-book deal with Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, a pet charity, in a deal arranged by Battersea’s licensing agent, The Point.1888

Joe Cottington, associate publisher, acquired rights in the U.K. and Ireland to the “Dog Puzzle Book” and “Cat Puzzle Book” from Katie Wilkinson at The Point.1888, with both books published simultaneously on Oct. 13. 

Battersea’s “Dog Puzzle Book” and “Cat Puzzle Book” – the first puzzle books supporting the charity – contain more than 100 new puzzles, from canine crosswords to cat quizzes.  

“You only have to look in the streets around you to see the explosion in dog and cat ownership in recent years, proof if ever it were needed that we are truly a nation of besotted pet lovers,” says Joe Cottington, associate publisher, Welbeck. “Battersea has a special place in the hearts of owners, and it’s a real joy to support the tireless charity work of the team there through these charming books, the ideal gifts for the pet lover in your life.” 

“We could not be more delighted to be working with Welbeck on these must-have brain teasers for dog and cat lovers alike,” says Warren Traeger, licensing manager, Battersea. “Our Battersea licensing program aims to be the No. 1 brand for dog and cat-related products and is growing at pace. Working with companies like Welbeck enables us to reach a broader audience, and every time a Battersea product is purchased, it helps ensure we are able to continue being here for every dog and cat.”
