Today we kick off the tour for Bertie the Buffalo, the sweet, wee, floppy haired blue Buffalo.
Bertie the Buffalo is based on a true story of when a Water Buffalo escaped from a Buffalo Park in Fife, near Dundee, Scotland. A rhyming book about the adventures Bertie got up to and how he safely returned home, demonstrating how important each of us is no matter how insignificant we feel. Bertie felt that no one noticed him. But he didn’t need to think that as we are all special. We are all a part of one big family.
Award Winning Author Wendy H. Jones lives in Scotland, and her police procedural series featuring Detective Inspector Shona McKenzie, is set in the beautiful city of Dundee, Scotland. Wendy has led a varied and adventurous life. Her love for adventure led to her joining the Royal Navy to undertake nurse training. After six years in the Navy she joined the Army where she served as an Officer for a further 17 years. This took her all over the world including Europe, the Middle East and the Far East. Much of her spare time is now spent travelling around the UK, and lands much further afield. As well as nursing Wendy also worked for many years in Academia. This led to publication in academic textbooks and journals. Killer’s Countdown is her first novel and the first book in the Shona McKenzie Mystery series. Killer’s Crew won the Books Go Social Book of the Year 2107. There are now six books in this series with Killer’s Crypt being released in August, 2017. The Dagger’s Curse is the first book in The Fergus and Flora Mysteries for Young Adults. This book is currently shortlisted for the Woman Alive Magazine Readers Choice Award Book of the Year. She is also a highly successful marketer and she shares her methods in the book, Power Packed Book Marketing.
First I need to apologise for the lateness of my review! This is what happens when you don’t write things down
I read this to my 3 year old daughter who loves animals! She loved Bertie and his floppy hair and how he ran and ran and ran….. I even got a demonstration!
She liked the bright colours and the rhyming of the words, she followed the story and was sad when Bertie and the farmer were sad.
We had a great big cheer for joy when Bertie found his way home and she liked his banner.
This is a wonderful book and has fast become my daughters favourite bed time read. Highly recommended and it may be in Santa’s sack for a few of her book loving friends 😉
