It’s nesting time for Rackety and the rest of the rooks from Beech Wood. But the Colonel and his pals can’t stand the noise. Something has to be done to quieten this noisy nursery. The Colonel has an ingenious plan. But will it work?

Smack! Suddenly the Colonel felt himself being catapulted along the ground in a blur of sky and sun. A clamour of ear-piercing caws filled the air. Rackety Rook and his pals had arrived back at Beech Wood.

Reader Reviews

Praise for The Colonel and Huffy

" Welcome to the Colonel's kingdom for another heart-warming story. This time Huffy the Hedgehog is down in the dumps and the other animals are determined to cheer her up. Huffy is new to the area and her Glasgow voice comes through loud and clear with phrases like "This here hedgehog didna come up the Clyde on a beech leaf" and "Can you no just let a buddy wallow in her misery?" But her gloominess can't stand up to her new friends' kindly efforts, and the ending is sure to bring a smile. Lovely illustrations - especially the maps - add to the fun."
