Back to School…

Back to school means back to reading. Reading for pleasure is one of the best ways, if not THE best way, to increase attainment at school. For those students who have had a lot of free time and less learning time recently – why not read some amusing and informative books. The special ‘Note Book Edition’ also means that you can alter the story or have a go at writing one of your own inside the actual books or draw your own images.

The Great Auk

Meet Aukid the Great Auk and Park the puffin! They have become great friends. Unfortunately Great Auks are now extinct. Or are they?…

Isolation blues?

Have the isolation blues kicked in yet? How about immersing yourself in the adventures of Aukid the Great Auk and Park the puffin? Read it for yourselves, read it to or with your children or just let them immerse themselves in another world. Educational but fun! Better still, the notebook version allows children to change the story or even write one for themselves!

Free postage throughout the ‘Lockdown’ period.


Happy World Book Day

Peruse my website to find two charming books starring two most unlikely friends – an extinct Great Auk and a puffin! How similar or different are these two birds? What lengths will Aukid the Great Auk go to in order to try and find more Great Auks? See both the rivalry and the friendship between these two birds! These books encourage children to learn whilst they read and create stories of their own.

Puffins re-unite

Here is an absolutely charming video from BBC Springwatch showing the re-uniting of two puffins getting prepared to have a puffling (baby puffin) of their own. Its definitely worth watching!


Forget about the storm this weekend. Here is a book that children can use to change/alter or add to the story or indeed start to write their own.

Encourage them to read the adventures of Aukid the Great Auk and Park the puffin.

Educational and fun!

Breeding Habits of the Great Auk

An interesting article showing research into the breeding habits of the Great Auk. Well worth a read!

Interesting Research

A really interesting article from Jess Thomas’s research. Well worth reading!

Vulnerability of the Great Auk

An interesting article showing how vulnerable the Great Auk was. We must ensure that this devistation of a species cannot be repeated again!

My books will help children to understand this vulnerability by presenting Aukid and Park in a human-like way. They will see how these birds think and feel and will empathise with Aukid as he seeks to find more Great Auks.

Christmas Fair

Aukid enjoyed his outing to the Lanivet Church Christmas Fair last evening. If you would like a book – please place your order on here. Last date for posting for Christmas is 18th December but I will deliver locally up until Christmas Eve.
