    My 7-year old daughter LOVES your books. Is there any way to get the SOS series in the US?

  3. khunsha says:

    hi Kelly
    i really love your book series but i wanted to ask if you are going to write any more animal SOS books because i really enjoy reading them

  4. Stephen says:

    My 7 year old daughter loves The Mystery of The Cliff Top Dog. We have had a bit of difficulty getting her engaged with books recently but with TMOTCTD she was absorbed from beginning to end. We live in Dublin and are going on holiday to Cornwall soon. I think she will be a bit disappointed not to see Amy or Leah ;-) Thank you.

  5. Jessica Hiscott says:

    I so want to read them Kelly.Also what your address I want to write you a letter!!

  6. Orla says:

    Although I have only read the hidden puppy rescue I think all your other books will be brilliant!

  7. evie says:

    I sooooooooooooooooooooo love animal s.o.s and the other books aswell but I like animal s.o.s most!

  8. Kelly McKain says:

    Hi Al, thanks so much for your message on my site about Animal S.O.S. It’s great to hear that you enjoy the series, and I agree that it’s difficult when publishers brand the books very strongly for either boys or girls (I don’t get much say in that, and none at all in the German covers, which I feel is OK as I don’t know the market there). As you can see, the UK covers aren’t pink at all. I think the more that people, especially your age, start reading on Kindles and iPads, the more this issue will be lessened – I hope so anyway! Thanks so much again, and happy reading! All best wishes, Kelly
    PS. I have replied on the message board too for you.

  9. Al says:

    Hi Kelly!
    This is coming from a great 8-year-old (male) fan of your Animal S.O.S. books in German translation :-) Just wonderful, adventurous stories, nicely written (or translated), BUT WHY EVERYTHING IN PINK?!? This series (i.e. adventurous animal stories) appeals to BOTH girls AND BOYS, but my friends won`t touch them because the covers (of the German version) are so “girlish”. What a pity. I wish there wasn`t so much prejudice, many boys love horses and ponies, too, and your S.O.S. series is very different to all the other “pony” series, which do appeal mainly to girls (which is ok, of course).
    Can`t wait for new titles to appear, but it needs courage to leave these pink books around for everyone to see…
    Kind regards, Al
