Adventure Book Gets Preteens to Read
Atlanta Author Thrills Preteens and Adults with Doggy Book. "The Further Adventures of Koko and Moochee" will be available through BQB Publishing’s online store and major book retailers in both paperback and eBook on October 9, 2012.
The Further Adventures of Koko and Moochee, by J.R. Hardin, is “hard to put down and full of action,” says ten-year-old Faith Darling. “I haven’t found a book that interested me in a long time, but this one was fun and thrilling. I really liked that the dogs and cat were smarter than the villains,” said Miss Darling. “I won’t tell the ending, though, that would spoil it.”
Even adult readers find the story well detailed and full of life. The two dogs and Tango, the cat, use logic that is believable to anyone who has ever owned either kind of pet. J.R. Hardin really knows dog behavior and uses his knowledge to create realistic scenes and actions that the reader can easily visualize, bringing the reader into the story to cheer for the small heroes.
This is the second volume focusing on the dogs. Hardin’s first book, The Adventures of Little Dog Koko, was released in May 2011 and received a high ratings from Readers Favorite and other reviewers. One reader described the book as having something for everyone and said she loved the action, adventure, and humor in Hardin’s writing. Reviews on Hardin’s books (http://bqbpublishing.com/

A true southern writer, J.R.’s books are flavored with the unique characters and settings of the south. He has also written three books in his Kudzu Monster series that are available in one volume: The Kudzu Monster Trilogy.
His constant companion is a little Shih-Tzu named Koko. According to J.R., “I write when my little dog doesn’t need me for some chore.” J.R. has written two books about Koko: The Adventures of Little Dog Koko and The Further Adventures of Koko and Moochee.
