About The Book

That is until Robbie Rabbit and his Bandits decide that carrots are on the menu!
Tommy Twigtree And The Carrot Crunchers is the first book for children by Michael Firman.
Illustrations are by Nick Roberts.
Regular readers will know how much Leo and I enjoy reading and sharing new books, so we were delighted to be send the story of Tommy Twigtree and The Carrot Munchers!
Tommy Twigtree is the large tree that presides over the garden and when he overhears a conversation between Olive Onion and Larry Leek about how lonely they are he decides to help. Acting on Tommy’s advice they plant some carrot seeds to grow themselves a row of new neighbours. However, Robbie and the rabbit bandits set their sights on having the newly grown carrots for dinner and despite the fence surrounding the vegetable patch are determined to find a way in to munch them!
This wonderfully written tale comprises of 8 pages of text making it a perfect length to read to younger children or ideal for older children to read to themselves. Each double page spread also has a full-page colourful illustration created by Nick Roberts which complement the story, portraying the character’s and drama of the story fantastically.
Leo really enjoyed this book, especially the pole-vaulting rabbits which really made him chuckle – the picture on this page is amazing and really captures the scene well. This book could easily lend itself to the creation of a series featuring other fun adventures in Tommy Twigtree’s garden and we would be keen as mustard to read them! This is a fun read which is a fantastic addition to our ever-growing bookshelf!
About The Author
Michael lives in rural Sussex with his wife. His story telling started when his eldest grandchild was old enough to appreciate a bedtime tale. Rather than read to her he began to craft stories about the trees, plants and animals that live in his garden. As time passed and a second grandchild also enjoyed these tales of adventure and daring, the stories began to create a whole world that lived and went about its business right in his garden.
His grand kids, Poppy and Rudi continue to enjoy further developments in the lives of the characters that populate these stories and Tommy Twigtree and The Carrot Crunchers is the first in a series charming garden tales.
Tommy Twigtree And The Carrot Munchers is available to purchase from Amazon*
