About this book
The story of a boy who wants to save the wildlife and landscape of his village's natural environment, presented in a gift edition with dustjacket, and evocative illustrations by Peter Bailey. Ages: 7+
The village is a stone's throw from the sea, with a gull on every chimney stack, and is peopled by quirky characters such as the three Stebbing sisters, the white moustachioed Colonel Burton and Bennie the village thug. But the heroine of this story is the serene Mrs Pettigrew, who lives in a railway carriage down in the marshes with her dogs.
