The Adventures of Flossy by Karl Bradshaw-White


The Adventures of Flossy by Karl Bradshaw-White

Flossy the dragonfly spends the day flying about, saying hello to lots of different animals, including the very loud bullfrog Morris, the beautiful but ever-so-busy kingfisher, some not very bright sheep and Horace the pig. What unpleasant eating habits they have! Flossy flies so far from home she loses her way; on her perilous way home she meets Spartan the eagle and a group of fireflies, both of whom prove particularly helpful. Later she will encounter a pair of rather irritable magpies. During her adventures she learns many things, in particular that she should not steal from others! This is an ideal bedtime story, or adventure series for children to follow. There are six colourful illustrations of the characters in the book.
