The Colonel's Collection

Welcome to the world of The Colonel. No, not a soldier - but a pheasant! A handsome cock pheasant, the undisputed leader of a small band of animals who live in Beech Wood, deep in the heart of the Scottish countryside. 'The Colonel's Collection' is a series of illustrated stories about the animals' adventures as they come face to face with their enemies. Fables to enjoy, packed with comedy and superbly illustrated.


Take a look inside the first six stories: 'Introducing The Colonel', 'The Colonel and Rosie', 'The Colonel and Fin', The Colonel and Osbert', 'The Colonel and Huffy' and the latest book 'The Colonel and Rackety'.



Reader Reviews

Praise for The Colonel and Osbert

" Once again Christine Findlay takes us on a delightful woodland adventure amongst the creatures who inhabit the Colonel's kingdom in a Scottish glen. The disruption to Osbert the Owl's life needs a radical solution, but the solution proves even worse than the problem. It's up to the Colonel to save the day. As in the earlier books in the series, Louise Gow's charming illustrations enhance the story. The Colonel series is sure to be loved by children and parents alike. "

Praise for Introducing The Colonel

" This is an exciting and engrossing tale for children, with a gentle lesson quietly implied. The Scottish setting is beautifully realised both in the text and the richly coloured illustrations. A delightful introduction to a new series of animal stories which will have children demanding more. "
