This collection of stories includes several about the adventures of a trio of garden gnomes who come to life and help others. Also, some are about a young boy and his unusual and talented pets and their many escapades and there are some amazing creatures who all solve problems and live their lives outside of the gaze of humans. Mr Fox and his family, for example, get up to mischief while everyone else is asleep and Millie the cockatiel lives in a cage and longs to be free but when she gets the chance, she is not so sure. Underwater excitement comes with Tilly, the trout – who is too brave for her own good. A young Scottish boy called Andrew has the sort of adventures most children dream of with Angus, his pet Highland Bullock to ride on and Jessie, his sheepdog, also plays her part. Maybe you believe in fairies? Find out what happened to old Albert when he met one – or did he?

Children will soon pick their favourite characters and adults will be pleased to know that each story is a self-contained adventure, perfect for a short bedtime story.

Louise Hems is an 87-year-old great-grandmother with her own children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and has looked after and worked with children all her life. She was a registered childminder until she was 70, a nanny and a regular babysitter. Throughout her life, she has preferred to make up stories to tell her children and much later committed them to print. These are some of the children’s favourites.
