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 Fin

" I am looking forward to reading the new short story in The Colonel's Collection with my 5 year old grandson. Osbert the owl is sure to be a great success with the amusing storyline of dressing and behaving like a punk. The illustrations bring all the characters to life and, with a deft touch, create a wonderful atmosphere as a backdrop to the action. The perfect size for a bedtime read! "

Praise for The Colonel and Huffy

" Our friends from the Colonel's Kingdom are back, but now Huffy the Hedgehog is casting gloom over a bright new summer's day. Transported unwillingly from the East End of Glasgow to this rural paradise, Huffy is determined to wallow in her misery. The kind-hearted Colonel and his friends try every way they can think of to cheer her up, but it is shy Donny who finds the answer. Wittily written and charmingly illustrated, The Colonel and Huffy is a worthy addition to this lovely series, popular with children and adults alike."
