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'.
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
" 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."
