A New Adventure – a must read!
For ages 6-9 but beautifully illustrated, it makes a lovely read for the whole family.
Charlotte and her brother Thomas live in the Cotswolds England. During the summer of 2018, it was unusually hot, and their adventure takes them past Mr Tarrant’s fields to the woodland which grow beside the river Windrush.
Here they meet new friends both real and mythical. The mythical creatures take them on a journey of curiosity and discovery.
Wonderfully illustrated and easy to follow ‘Out of the Woodland’ immerses the reader in a world of animal and bio- wonders, bridging the real and the imagined. This children’s book with traditional undertones will both delight and enthrall the reader.

“I ran down the stairs, out the door and straight to the stables to check on Crackers, but he seemed fine. Sitting on his bottom were, not ONE, not TWO, not THREE but FOUR creatures! I wondered if they had climbed his tail.”
