About the books

Grimwood (book 1)

Fox cub siblings Ted and Nancy are on the run from Princess Buttons, the scariest street cat in the Big City. They flee for Grimwood, expecting to find refuge in the peaceful countryside.

Instead, they are met with thieving eagles, dramatic ducks, riotous rabbits and a whole host of unusual characters. But when Princess Buttons tracks them down, Nancy and Ted and the animals of Grimwood must unite in a mindbending race against time.

Grimwood: Let the Fur Fly! (book 2)

Ted and Nancy love their new life in Grimwood – the forest where anything can happen. But the dastardly mayor of neighbouring town Twinklenuts is on a mission to take over Grimwood and kick everyone out.

Ted and Nancy must muster up bags of courage, rally their friends, and show off their treebonking skills to save the home they’ve grown to love.
