Published in support of Children’s Hospice South West (all royalties from sale go to that worthy charity), it is fitting that the stories in this book should have been written specifically for children, and with a view that they might be read together with parents and friends.

That each of the 16 stories included should also be firmly rooted in theWestcountry adds greatly to their charm and fascination. Each tale centres on the magical and mysterious adventures of a wide range of animals who, in the long tradition of fairy tales, offer through their voice and way of life, a lesson of value to human beings.

The author Endymion Beer has already established herself as an important voice in the region, her empathetic approach to teaching others about wildlife being an important factor in her drive for conservation. She is a freelance illustrator and writer and was first published in 1989 when attending Great Torrington Secondary School, in the North Devon Gazette & Advertiser, whilst on work experience withTrevor Beer, Endymion’s friend, colleague, mentor and namesake.

Her first regular column, ‘Plant Profile’ featured in Countryside, the British Naturalists Association’s official magazine in 1994. She is currently the BNA’s Youth Officer and a recognised naturalist, writer and illustrator. Endymion received the Richard Fitter Memorial Medal in 2008, for promoting the identification of species via field guides and illustrated nature interpretation boards. Her recent publications include: A Celebration of Flora & Fauna of the Bible and a children’s book, Bod the Beast of Bodmin Moor.

Imprint: Ryelands. ISBN 978 1 906551 21 6, paperback, 297x210mm, 96 pages. Published November 2009.
