Fowl Deeds and Feathers

The first book in the Happy Bottom series

Inspired by Dorset place names, these wacky, humorous rhymes aim to stimulate creativity as well as the enjoyment of reading in young children.

The arrival of a letter rousing dreams of a new life in the country, is met with jubilation. Far from the discovery of a rose covered cottage, however, Major Payne is forced to do battle with the locals; defeat a bad tempered cockerel and declare WAR on the crows! In the mockery and madness that follows, only one thing is certain: Major Payne’s life will never be the same again! Fowl Deeds and Feathers, the first in the Happy Bottom series, with its word play, comic verse and hilarious illustrations, will amuse even the most reluctant reader.
