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.
