Hello. Welcome to Aukid’s digital home, the Auk-ward Company’s website. My books are designed to be enjoyed whilst stimulating curiosity in extinct birds and enabling you, the readers, to learn more about them. My interest in the Great Auk was started by my father when I was small and I feel privileged to be able to pass this on. The Great Auk became extinct before any of us were born and, therefore, remains a bird of complete mystery. Or does it?…

Best Wishes

About

One of a series of fictional stories designed to re-ignite the interest for, and imagination of, extinct animals. Told from the animal’s (Aukid’s) point of view – it will teach and inspire all who read the book and will leave them wishing that the Great Auks had never become extinct.

Story-writing…

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!
