Product description

Review

A book of immense charm; a sort of P G Wodehouse meets Alexander McCall Smith (Joanne Harris on A Guide to the Birds of East Africa)

A delightful comedy... It invites comparison to The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency books, but it's original and, if anything, has more depth (Daily Mail on A Guide to the Birds of East Africa)

A gentle alternative world just waiting to be explored...put aside your woes and cares and give yourself a treat (Guy Pringle newbooks)
