My Review

Again, this was sent to me by Faye at Authoright, as part of their blog tour for this book.

It’s a very simple story about a vegetable garden under attack by rabbits. The illustrations are lovely and the writing easy to understand. It’s not rhyme, and feels a bit rigid at times, but has several characters which almost have personalities.

I hope it encourages children to try growing vegetables. Leeks, Carrots and onions make a lovely stew. Especially with a bit of rabbit.

Author Bio

Michael lives in rural Sussex with his wife. His story telling started when his eldest grandchild was old enough to appreciate a bedtime tale. Rather than read to her he began to craft stories about the trees, plants and animals that live in his garden. As time passed and a second grandchild also enjoyed these tales of adventure and daring, the stories began to create a whole world that lived and went about its business right in his garden.

His grand kids, Poppy and Rudi continue to enjoy further developments in the lives of the characters that populate these stories and Tommy Twigtree and The Carrot Crunchers is the first in a series charming garden tales

Hi I'm Rosemarie and I like to write. I write short stories and longer fiction, poetry and occasionally articles. I'm working on quite a few things at the minute and wouldn't mind one day actually getting published in print.
