A Wolf in the Kitchen is the prequel to Jim’s first book, Sled Dog Gun: Aviemore Dreaming.In 1987 Jim and Cherry bought their very first Siberian Husky… Hustler.On showing him to people for the first time, they were asked the inevitable question: “Is that a baby wolf?”A year later in the Summer of 1988 a small advert in a local paper changed their lives forever. They discovered the sport of “dog sledding.”Over the next 15 years, more dogs were bought until they had eleven.What follows is the story of these years and is both highly amusing, and often downright funny.After much perseverance, and some frustration, Jim transforms these dogs into one of the fastest teams in Great Britain.With it came recognition that he never imagined, and he and his team found fame on national radio and TV and played a part in a major movie film.A lovely easy read that is suitable for all ages.

Jim was born in the dockside town of Birkenhead Merseyside. At 18, he joined the Royal Navy. Upon leaving he travelled and worked in Europe, America, Canada and Australia. Finally, the author retrained as a landscape gardener, highlighted by managing landscaping of Adventure Land Disney Land Paris.
Jim met Cherry in 1984 and bought his first husky, Hustler, in 1987. This changed his life and began his lifetime passion for dogsledding. The author retired to France in 2012 where he lives with Cherry, his 6 remaining huskies, 4 cats and Wizzy, the Border Terrier.

    The prequel to Brydes first book takes a look at where his love for sled dog racing began. It all started with a dog called Husler who, for one dog, had a very big impact on Bryde’s life. But to Race sled dogs you need more than one; so along came Cassie. These two dogs, and the ones that followed, make the reader fall in love with the Siberian Husky and question if having one is a good idea (it is). This incredible book shows that many successful people come from humble beginnings. A Wolf In The Kitchen is a love letter to the wonderful dogs that kickstarted Bryde’s incredible sled dog racing career. A lovely book that I highly recommend. Just brilliant
