Winter-time In Whimsy Wood

Would you believe, it’s now only 3 weeks until Christmas Day?! That’s right! Your present shopping days are numbered!! Talking of festive shopping, my ‘Whimsy Wood’ series and I have a stall at Edington Farm Shop’s Christmas Fair in Edington, Wiltshire today from 4-10pm and at Seend Primary School’s Christmas Fair in Seend, Wiltshire tomorrow from 6-8pm. So if you’d like to meet ‘Posie Pixie’ and ‘Wibble Woodlouse’ and have a signed copy of 1 of my ‘Whimsy Wood’ books, then please come along for some festive fun and merriment!!  

In ‘Whimsy Wood’ itself, the leaves on the woodland floor are laced with frost and ‘Skittle Spider’s’ creative cobwebs, are given a touch of magic when ‘Jack Frost’ runs his fingers over them! ‘Humbug Hedgehog’ has found himself the perfect place to hibernate – he’s scrabbled under the large lime log where ‘Wibble Woodlouse’s’ family live! I’m sure he’ll have a cracking Christmas with those wonderful woodlice 😉 ‘Bromley Badger’ has also got himself comfy and cosy in his set, to snooze through most of the winter! He’ll still find some time and energy between naps mind you, for a party or 3! Being ‘Whimsy Wood’s’ main party-animal of course!!

While these 2 woodland creatures doze away, spare a thought for poor ‘Bumble Barn Owl’. He has to hunt harder and longer for food to eat, with the winter being so cold and the days much shorter. You may even see him flying along the edges of ‘Whimsy Wood’ during the daytime, as he searches for a wee mouse or vole for his tea…..

Before I close the heavy oak doors on the wonderful world that is ‘Whimsy Wood’, I’d like to share with you this video clip of book 5, ‘Posie Pixie And The Christmas Tree’, to get you in the festive spirit 🙂 So cuddle up and enjoy 😉


Wishing you an early whimsical weekend and a late whimsical week!
