Busy Corner Books published their first book, A Year In June, in 2011. This is an inspirational journey with countryside animals and strange eccentric characters like, Mrs Lovetta Trussworthy, a supportive and caring old lady who listens to Percy the pheasant, Mrs Corothers, the crow, and lots of other animals to help them feel better. Rantwistle Seepidge is always around somewhere to dampen things down a little and Ernest Wintur-bottome farms far too many Longtails (that's large brown country rats to you and me) - so he eats them for his tea! Winifred, the old barn owl, is always here in the nick of time and Isabella, our Pond Pikelette, is magical and quite unique. Borris the badger spreads gossip like there is no tomorrow and delivers notes, parcel and cakes.
Their next book, also published in 2011, was 'Take from it what you will...', written by the main character of A Year In June, Lovetta Trussworthy. Lovetta writes little moralistic stories about a jealous tawny owl, a sad sunflower, a flustered hen and a bossy seagull to remind us of important things in life.
In 2012, they released their heartfelt story, 'We forgot to tell Jack!' Paula and Barrie wrote this book together to help them say goodbye to their beloved pet dog.
