Corvid19 virus pandemic. The country is now in legally enforced isolation. Wecannot plan any events at present. I was hoping to list events where Davey would be present, but I think all such mass meeting events will be cancelled this summer 2020.


There is good news however, Book 4 has arrived in the post this morning. It is the "proof" copy and now goes to proof readers for mistakes, and modifications. Once that is done, (about a week) I will order the print run.

I hope to have the book on the website by Easter. It matches the format of the previous three books and is "Davey and the Big Red Machine". Once again the charming illustrations by Mary Oldham bring the storey to life.

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.


Christmas cards and greetings cards.  These are new and feature illustrations from the books all hand drawn by Mary Oldham. Available now.


"Uncle Humphrey" meets Davey again

Davey and Gipsy  went to the Lynmouth Classic Car event on 11th July.2017.

A lovely setting and a sunny but blustery day. A real pleasure to see "UNcle Humphrey", Davey's original owner there and meeting his Davey again. He bought the tractor new in 1954. See the lovely picture of him with the tractor. It is always a pleasure to see him and I hope he enjoyed the whole event. Lynmouth is such a dramatic setting for any public event.

 Woody Bay Steam Railway Gala 26 - 27th. September. 2016

A fine sunny weekend with lots of rail enthusiasts present.

Davey and Jennifer Gipsy attracted lots of interest . The railway is fascinating and the steam engines were polished and smart. The coaches had the old style doors and windows with leather strap to pull up the window.  We all wish the company success in their ambition to extend the length of track.

Sampford Peverell rally, 16th August.

Sampford Peverell rally, 16th August. A small rally but well organised. Some very interesting vehicles were present. Informal atmosphere so public can get up close to cars and tractors.


South Molton Steam and Vintage Rally.

Davey and Jennifer Gipsy were at the rally for both days. Sadly the weather was cool but much interest in Davey and the Gipsy.




A satisfied customer !

A picture sent to me - a good choice of reading matter.
