The Squirrel-Nut Issue 9, Nov 2015

Welcome to the Winter 2015 Edition of The Squirrel-Nut.

Winter berries

Nature’s Larder – the abundance of berries and seeds this autumn is said to augur a long, cold winter ahead, with hard frosts due from January to early April. Will it come to pass? Either way, the hedgerows are bright with sloes, rosehips and haws, and the birds well catered for.

Please feel free to forward The Squirrel-Nut to anyone you know who might be interested.

Inspiration for the Frog Band Books

The Frog Band and the Mystery of Lion Castle

When we first met up with Mary Smith, Jim's wife, in Salisbury, one of the stories she told us was of how Jim asked her to stand on a chair in a large duffle coat. This was so he could see exactly how the folds would fall for this image of Brooker Lion in The Frog Band and the Mystery of Lion Castle.
