COMPLIMENTS TO DALE TREADWELL ON HIS BOOK ‘ROBBY THE ROBIN’ – 4th wk in December 2014

I had just finished shovelling horse manure into a trailer for spreading on vacant veg and rhubarb plots when Brendan, our postman arrived. Among his letters was a thin package. Inside was a beautifully illustrated book for children called ‘Robby the Robin’, by wildlife guru from children’s television, Dale Treadwell.  It is a clever and witty story about a territorial robin who comes across as bossy. I can say for certain that my 4 year old niece loves it. This book will certainly help her interest in observing wildlife to grow. Thanks again Dale, my Aussie mate! Long may we see you enthral young audiences on Irish television. Australia’s loss is Ireland’s gain! The book (as they say) is available in all good bookshops. BTW, Dale has another book out, ‘Harry the Hedgehog, which is also great.
