Burlington Bear (Burly to his friends) and Grum the groblin are best friends. It's Burly's birthday and he's looking forward to a lazy day on a tropical island beach but neither he nor Grum are aware there is a bank robber on the run until it's too late! There are lots of new characters - Detective Finn and his daughter Tara, King the crab, Gruel the bank robber and his gang The Toolkits. Burly's brithday surprise takes on a whole new meaning as they try to help Detective Finn capture the gang!
Hi - I'm Kate and I live in Essex in the UK with my son and two cats, Puzzle and Bud.
I've always loved writing - I can't stop! I've met many incredible people through writing, learnt a huge amount and had opportunities I'd only ever dreamt of - visiting schools and talking to children, running writing workshops at children's bookshops and libraries - it's been wonderful and I want to continue to write and work hard and build on what I've done so far, life's too short to be sitting at home!
I've now published 3 books and 2 short stories in the children's series, The Burly & Grum Tales. I've been incredibly lucky and one of my books, 'Burly & Grum and The Secret City' is a finalist in the People's Book Awards 2013/14. You can check out what's happening to Burly & Grum on www.burlyandgrum.com or by reading my blog at www.burlyandgrum.blogspot.com
I also have one book for young adults 'Unlucky Dip' which has had some wonderful reviews and I'm looking forward to writing more like it.
Thank you and happy reading!
