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.

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 . 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.
