Reader Feedback

Hi Alan,
           Just a thankyou note for all your work in sending the books (to Australia) etc. They arrived a couple of weeks ago though haven’t had a chance to read them to all the grand kids yet. More inside time when the weather gets colder. If you ever bring out more Davey books please let me know. I’ll always be  David Brown fan for sure.
Thanks again for your help, Cheers, David J.

 

"Davey to the Rescue"

I like this story even more than Waking up Davey. The expressions on the tractors are so convincing.

Lots to see in the illustrations.

 Thankyou2

A love of anything mechanical, usually that uses or oozes oil !
Love of the West Country and Somerset and North Devon particularly.
Own woodland in Somerset. Love the trees that are older than me and will live longer.

A love of the sea and boats. Sailed as crew on the Kathleen and May historic schooner. Loved every minute of it. Now sail in the Bristol Channel but respect the sea. Also a skipper on the Appledore Instow Ferry (www.appledoreinstowferry.com) and love that too.

Honoured to receive the Doctor of the Year award 2008 from the Well Child charity.

Mary Oldham


A talented local artist with the ability to bring wildlife to reality with beautiful paintings so true to life. See her work at www.maryoldham.co.uk . You will be impressed. I persuaded Mary to step out of her comfort zone and do the hand drawn illustrations of Davey. She will not admit it but she has extended her comfort zone, the illustrations create the character and are evocative too. She has agreed to illustrate further stories.
Mary and her husband Mick have recently retired from Streamways Nursery business and now run a stables and livery, fortunately nearby.
