THE ANIMAL CHRONICLES: Book reading and talk

Talk at Carmarthen Library on 5 March 2015 at 2:30 pm

animal-chronicles-coverOn March 5 I’ll be speaking at the Carmarthen Library Book Club on King Street about my new book, The Animal Chronicles. I’ll be reading an excerpt and talking about how I got my ideas and what my publishing experience was like.

The Animal Chronicles is a collection of ten quirky animal stories reminiscent of Roald Dahl, including:

  • a bee who is afraid of flowers
  • a whale who wants to be a pop star
  • a moth who wants to be a butterfly
  • a brown rat expedition to Antarctica
  • the frog Olympics
  • a gorilla without a family
  • a hummingbird migration
  • FeatherEx, the avian delivery service
  • Sheldon Snail, the ambassador of the “slow” movement
  • the Animal Kingdom beauty pageant.

These stories are packed with science facts as well as humour and heart. All of the characters are well-versed in our contemporary culture. They may surprise you with their insights into our lives! This book is for everyone who wants to read about our dreams and laugh about our foibles. Ebook and paperback editions are available.

Previously published ebooks now available in paperback

The Accidental Athlete and Revenge of the Vegetables, previously published as ebooks, are now also available as paperbacks. A Welsh/English bilingual edition of Revenge of the Vegetables also is available.

For more information or to buy the books, visit my author page on Amazon or Amazon U.K..
