Out Now - Mischief and Mayhem - OUT NOW
A story about a wild bird for children

You’ll never look at a garden bird again without a smile!

....Unless you’re a cat!

nature book 3 mischief and mayhem

...Robin was overwhelmed with content as he stared at the food -
A hundred juicy mealy worms, which, to refuse, might appear rude…

 

The season was moving along -
No more butterflies, bugs or bees -
Each day Robin noticed the birds
Building winter nests in their trees.



By now he had learnt all the sounds,
Of new ways and activities;
Habits of household pets indoors
(And a small mouse chomping on cheese)

Will RoseHip get used to his new life indoors? 

Will he get used to the dog or stay safe from the cat?

Written as part of a book series to be enjoyed through the early reading years and beyond, Robin RoseHip books will grow with the reader from early enjoyment in rhyme to developing empathy and touching the hearts of older readers to enjoy over the years!

It's a book that celebrates kindness and is filled with beautiful sounds, perfect rhyming lines and various rhythms to keep the story moving, with fun and interesting ideas shared through its enjoyable rhythms with memorable patterns and phrases.

It is getting closer to Christmas and although this charming little garden bird still has ideas of escaping back to the wild woods up the road, he is starting to think about how he can keep himself busy.

Robin enjoys spending time with the girl who saved him from the cat and he quite likes ‘ComeOnRover’ the fluffy house-dog, apart from her fur.  Realising he is becoming a ‘pet’, he is determined to live his own life unlike some animals who are never free.

He decides to make the most of his time indoors and escapes from his temporary cage to explore the room. Once he has tired himself out, he perches on a bookshelf and cheers himself up by daydreaming that his friends, Fairy and Mouse, are up to mischief teasing the cat.

He enjoyed the small taste of freedom he got when flying about in the room…it could become a regular thing…
