The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is a wonderful story told in rhyming verse and perfect for parents to read aloud to their young children or for slightly older children who have just learned to read to enjoy alone. Readers will be introduced to lots of woodland friends and can join them in many magical adventures where dreams are made. A truly delightful tale that's not to be missed.

About the Author

Colleen Laybourne-Smith

"I was born and brought up in South London but now live in Shrivenham where I moved to with my husband two years ago and we love it here! I previously worked in the beauty business, mostly as a manager in London, for 24 years and was finally able to concentrate on my dream of writing.

"Another passion of mine was singing. As I reached my early twenties I started to write lyrics for a band I was with at the time and this song-writing, written in rhyming verse, carried on until just the words took over and I wrote poetry in my thirties. Finally, my love of poetry, story-telling and children came together in my book.

"It is a collection of 4 stories with 14 illustrations about a fox family, the two parents and their 3 children and is set in a magical wood. The stories revolve around them, their woodland friends and the adventures they share. The stories are written in rhyming verse which I feel is a great introduction into poetry for young children.

"..I hope you get a chance to read my book and I know that adults will love it as much as children, after all, we are all still children at heart!"
