L,B acquires Pudsey 'autobidography'

Little, Brown has acquired the official memoir from Pudsey, the canine half of this year's "Britain's Got Talent" winning duo.

Publishing director Adam Strange bought world rights in a deal with Pudsey and his owner 17-year-old owner Ashleigh Butler's manager, Jonathan Shalit.

The title, Pudsey: My Autobidography will be published under the Sphere imprint this autumn.

Strange said: "I'm thrilled to be publishing such a unique story. We all know Pudsey's an amazing dancer, but it's been a delight to discover that he's a great raconteur too. His route to the top has been unconventional to say the least, so I'm delighted to be working with him to reveal it to his army of fans."

Pudsey is a six-year-old Bichon Frise-Border Collie-Chinese Crested cross. Ashleigh and Pudsey won the sixth series of "Britain's Got Talent" this year with their dance routines.
