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 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. "
