As a grandparent…
I really enjoyed this story which not only entertained but also seemed very plausible for a 5 year old’s active imagination. The illustrations helped keep my listeners focused on the story and the layout, words and sentence structures were simple and flowing for good story telling.
My audience (a five year old grandson) liked the story enough to give it pride of place on his nightstand and as a developing reader was able to tackle much of the book. I think the motorbike, parachute and slide in the subject played a big part in capturing his interest.
Children’s Illustrated Book Roger the Rooster of Ambury Park farm after many requests has been translated into Spanish.
El Gallo Rogelio De La Granga De Ambury Park at $30 is now available. A package of both books in English and Spanish for a very special price of $45 plus postage for them both.

Jimi said the translation of book was “better than excellent”, he really enjoyed it.
Revue for Roger and Rogelio.
I already read them and love both of them. I really like your writing style and specially that Roger/Rogelio teaches without preaching. I am sure my grandson will love this book for the story, the drawings and even now (he is only 4) for what it tells you.
Muchisimas gracias!! Olga – Adelaide Australia.
Today 1st February 2017 I received this revue of EL GALLO ROGELIO from Megan a Spanish Teacher in Auckland.
I was thrilled when my story A Snowy Kiwi Christmas appeared in 2014 edition of The Best of Twisty Christmas Tales alongside such well known authors as Joy Cowley, David Hill, David Freer and many others.
An Anthology of 31 stories for children from 8 – 12 year olds. A very popular book both in Kindle and paper back before Christmas and I have also been selling it well alongside my other books.
