Product Description

About the Author

I live in Essex with my son, who is studying at University, and my two cats, Puzzle and Bud. I’ve always loved writing and in January 2011 I got together with some friends and set up a writers’ group at our local library. One of our first guest speakers was a young lady called Penelope Fletcher who talked to us about self-publishing – I was so inspired I went back home, found some stories I’d written for my son when he was young and started the process of learning how to self-publish. I published 3 books in the Burly & Grum series and then in July 2012 was lucky enough to be signed up by GMTA. I’ve enjoyed every single second of my journey so far, learnt an incredible amount and I’m looking forward to the future! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Felt like ages waiting for the 3rd book - really missed hearing about the adventures of Burly and Grum plus all their friends. Loved every page of Burly & Grum and the Birthday Surprise.... even brought a tear to my eye towards the end. Think it should be turned into an animated kids series for TV next! Brilliant Kate - well done. Thank you also for supporting the work of the Born Free Foundation.

I absolutely adored the first two Burly & Grum tales so, naturally, I was thrilled to find out the author published a third book in the series. I expected it to be as funny and action-filled as the previous installments, and to my delight, it exceeded my expectations.

In The Birthday Surprise, Burly's looking forward to his birthday and spending the day on the beach. What he doesn't know though is that there's a bank robber on the island and a quiet day is the last thing Burly will have, what with Burly having to help Detective Finn to find the gang and nothing turning out as planned.

I cannot stress out enough how much I love the Burly & Grum series, both the writing and the illustrations. They're filled with twist and turns, a great adventure, and humor. I'd recommend this book to both the young and the young-at-heart, and hope the author will write many more Burly & Grum adventures.

I've always enjoyed the Burly & Grum stories, and "The Birthday Surprise" didn't disappoint.

Angel Mike sends Burly & Grum off to a beautiful beach (with oodles of food) so they can relax before Burly's birthday celebrations but, in true Burly & Grum style, trouble isn't far behind. Cue a band of thieves, a detective and his daughter, and a very crabby. . .crustacean.

All these make for a comedic adventure that's sure to make your kids smile. After all, I'm a big kid and I smiled all the way through :)
