Neal William’s Adventure

Neal William's Adventure
A lovely funny story with great illustrations

Neal William’s Adventure is a  cute children’s story where a boy meets a worm driving a motorbike who takes him on an adventure through the garden. Neal brings a red spotted hanky, a black smooth stone and a piece of string and all are useful on their adventure. Who do they save? What happened when they are stuck on top of the compost heap?

Book available now. Contact Robyn for more information.

Another revue:

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. Wonderful gift for the Latin American Community who would like their children to enjoy reading Spanish and also have the English version to read too. Contact Robyn to order the books.

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 thought I’d send you a quick message to say hello as I picked up your book from the library yesterday and was surprised to see it in Spanish about Ambury Farm right here in Auckland!
I’m a kiwi Spanish teacher and am passionate about good quality literature options for young learners in other languages. I wanted to say that Nina (my 22 month old daughter) and I enjoyed your book very much and are there any others?!
