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 Rosie

" Another heart-warming and funny tale, The Colonel and Rosie will charm children and adults with both words and pictures. The detailed end-paper maps also help bring the animals' home to life, while the plight of our native red squirrels is underscored by Rosie's danger. "

Dr Ann Swinfen

Praise for The Colonel and Fin

" I took a copy of 'The Colonel and Fin' with CD to my two nieces aged 7 and 4. Since then, the older one has been listening to the CD constantly. She already has the first two books and enjoyed them but the latest book has totally revived her interest to the point that she has become almost obsessed. In a good way! She has spent the weekend dressing up as Fin - red tights, hoodie and a red top as a tail. And she has now made a mask, all by herself, and paws. The Colonel and his friends have really captured her imagination. She has certainly become a big fan!"
