Facts and laughs from new book

CHB Mail - - NEWS -

Sis­ters Jen­nifer Somer­vall and Margery Fern con­tinue their child­hood tales of life grow­ing up on the fam­ily di­ary farm in Silo­dale, near Taka­pau.

This is their fifth chil­dren’s book, each one grow­ing as in­deed they do, with their quirky sto­ries and il­lus­tra­tions.

Poor old un­cle Al­lan has bro­ken his leg in a week­end game of rugby. Bored at home he de­cides to visit the farm! Of course we end up with a rather smelly prob­lem as un­cle Al­lan en­joys muck­ing in with the cows . . . and can’t wash un­der the plas­ter cast.

The Tales from the Farm books not only of­fer chil­dren a laugh-out-loud read but also in­ter­est­ing and fun facts. This book tells us about the real Un­cle Al­lan, frac­tures, plas­ter casts, your amaz­ing bones and how they heal.

EX­TRACT 1:

The next morn­ing Un­cle Al­lan bounced out of bed.

He hopped on the bike be­hind John and hoisted up his leg. Vroom! They raced across the pad­docks.

“Woohoo!” shouted Un­cle Al­lan. Splat! Splat! Splash! Wet, stinky, cow poo splat­tered all over Un­cle Al­lan’s plas­ter cast.

EX­TRACT 2:

Noth­ing could stop Un­cle Al­lan. He loved milk­ing cows. Swish! Swish! He swung the hose around, splash­ing wa­ter ev­ery­where, as he cleaned the cows’ teats.

Sluice! Sluice! Wa­ter and stinky, green cow poo splashed down his leg and seeped un­der his plas­ter cast.
