Cable the Crow continues to fear almost everything, even his own shadow, and is well known for often being just one step away from danger. He is frightened by things that many birds could not care less about, such as scarecrows, golf balls, and Scotsmen’s legs! He is also terrified of things that many birds are fearful of too.

Cable and his wife have always dreamt of going on holiday and now for the first time ever, they have decided to go camping.

Will they choose the right places to pitch their tent? Do they find a proper campsite, or are their choices typically hazardous? What sort of obstacles do you think they may come across? Surely, Cable and his wife Christine can manage this simple task; or can’t they? Join Cable’s tense holiday saga and find out if camping was a success.

With elements of humour, pattern, rhyme, and repetition, the story has an interesting plot that captures the attention of the reader.

The features of this book entail, high quality, engaging, varied, meaningful and colourful illustrations which add to the storyline, in conjunction with the integrated lively memorable text to raise a child’s sense of wonder and imagination.

There are some delicious words that roll off the tongue and beg to be repeated which enticingly connect to the illustrations and provide contextual clues for vocabulary development.

Lorna lives in the leafy suburb of Low Fell with her fiancé Richard and loves nothing better than exploring the countryside, art galleries, yoga and engaging in the local cultural scene.

At the age of two and a half, she began her own school life ahead of schedule, attending her mother’s primary school. Following her mother’s footsteps into teaching, she became an art and design teacher. Passionate for art, reading writing and drama; Lorna has acted in several amateur plays. She thoroughly enjoys emulating the dialect and mannerisms of a myriad of people, which benefits her storytelling.

    I bought Cable goes Camping because my granddaughter Jess, finds Cable the crow an intriguing traveller and enjoys having his adventures read to her as a bed time story.

    In Cable goes Camping,Cable manages to pitch up many miles from his home territory of the North and in each location finds unexpected setbacks but undeterred flies on with Christine, in hope, and eventually, the comfort of home.

    The attractive illustrations give each site a character of its own-whether a goal mouth at St James Park football ground to the slip road off the M1 Motorway signposted to The North: for children a wide range of sites provide an opportunity of learning ,from parents and readers, about the regions, interests shown and characters met.

    Another beautifully constructed story which invites young readers to delve into the range and rhythm of the vocabulary and explore the humour contained in the both the words and the exquisite illustrations.
    Welcome back Cable and Christine!

    What a pleasure to meet up with Cable again and wallow in the richness of Lorna's language. The delightful illustrations are laced with local references and full of humour.

    Your children will love Cable the Crow and his wife Christine. Here they are in their second adventure trying to find somewhere safe to go camping. But if you are in the North East of England, that is harder than it looks from the air. Readers from the region will recognise places we love that are really made for human beings, not for crows. Despite their disappointments, Cable and Christine will teach young readers about not giving up. This is a wonderfully illustrated book, grown ups may see similarities to Beryl Cook's unforgettable images but its main audience will appreciate a great story, perfectly pitched for its target age group, and including words to learn for the first time. As a child psycho-therapeutic counsellor I know the importance of having materials that children and adults can enjoy together and this lovely book fits the bill (forgive the pun).
