Horace and Nim




Horace & Nim in "Fun to Learn Friends" Magazine this June & October!

'Kay's First Splinter' - Friends Magazine 402 - October 2018

Kay gets a splinter. And it hurts. To make things worse Polecat Mac hears about it and all he wants to do is dig it out with his needle. He’s got Splinter Fever! Kay hides, but Polecat Mac is REALLY persistent. Will Horace arrive with his tweezers before things turn ugly?

With special prize draw for the readers of Friends Magazine!

'The Too Delicous Raspberries' - Friends Magazine 394 - 14 June 2018

The fruits of the forest are ripening, but the only way Polecat Mac will bake one of his delicious raspberry pies is if the friends do the picking. The friends can pick the raspberries okay, but the fruit keeps finding its way into their mouths before it reaches their baskets. Looks like they’ll never collect enough. Can Horace save the day with his secret raspberry-picking device?

Three Horace & Nim stories previously published in 'Fun to learn Friends' Magazine

'The Yo-Yo Bug' - Friends Magazine 386 -
21 February 2018

Everyone’s having fun yo-yo-ing - it’s the latest craze. But Nim really gets the bug. He spends his whole time practising on his own and doesn’t see his friends any more. He’s obsessed. His friends miss him and it makes them all sad. Will Nim ever get his yoyo-life balance right?

'The Lucky, Lucky Leaf' - Friends Magazine 2015 - now as picture book! Coming September 2018 more info

It’s a windy autumn day and the friends are out catching falling leaves for luck. Nim wants to break his all time record of five lucky leaves before tea time. But the more leaves he catches the more accidents he seems to have catching them. Forget breaking records, will Nim survive till teatime?


'The Rainbow's End'

It’s raining but the sun’s out. It’s rainbow time! Polecat Mac says pots of gold at the rainbow’s end are just old wives' tales. He’s probably right, but who cares? It’ll be fun looking! And sometimes magical things do happen in the forest.

A series of new picture books are currently in development
