Country Tales is a series of six illustrated short stories set in the countryside, mixing previously published titles about girls, from the book Up on the Hill, and original stories about boys. Each is gently told in spare, lyrical prose, accessible for children new to reading alone but with enough deeper emotional content to be returned to and read again and again and satisfy more fluent and older readers.
Praise for the Country Tales series:
‘This tale of courage and love is potent and moving throughout; I couldn’t put it down.’ Red Reading Hub
‘Engaging, compelling, thoughtful and simply lovely. They will become favourites!’ Fallen Star Stories
‘Nicola Davies has created another brilliant wildlife story for young readers in this part of a series of six beautifully illustrated books with Cathy Fisher. The story is ideal for upper primary readers, and, as ever, mixes a strong emotional connection with animals with fascinating detail.’ BookTrust
