The Boy with the Saucepan Hat

When Oliver Todd wakes up with a Saucepan stuck firmly on his head, he thinks, at first that - surely things can't get any worse... or can they?

The Boy with the Saucepan Hat features a Boy and a Saucepan (obviously), some worried parents, a cute baby sister and a loyal best mate, Alan. This is a story about what happens when the unfortunate Oliver Todd takes his head and the saucepan (which is stuck on that head) to the local Accident and Emergency Department.

It's a great new funny book for kids! Get YOUR hands on a limited First Edition copy, right here!

Uncle Jack and the Bumblebee

When a 12-year-old boy opens a window to let out a fly, he is a bit annoyed when a bumblebee comes in after the fly. But things get worse!...

"You may question this story; or think it absurd,
but, after the bumblebee - in came...a bird...
...who fluttered and flapped and seemed fit to explode,
in a flurry of feathers,
and I should have then knowed:
That a bee can be nasty, and give quite a sting...
but a bird in the house?
Now - that's a baaaaad thing!"

Well, eventually, his good old Uncle Jack turns up - and brings even more animals! Find out what happens when your house becomes a jungle!

'...but, then, he returned - with a bit of a smell,
and a couple of chimps and a baby gazelle;
a lizard, a python, a penguin or two...
.. in fact, pretty much everything, found in a zoo!'
