Excerpt:

I opened my eyes, blinked a couple of times and looked up at an old, lined face and into a pair of pale, grey and smiling eyes.

I never actually learned the old lady’s name, but she gently whispered to me to lie still whilst she checked to see if I was hurt.

She explained that she had found me an hour ago in the park, that I had probably been dropped by a little girl or boy and that she had brought me home because the nights were so cold.

Later that evening, I was washed in the kitchen sink with an old toothbrush (I didn’t like that), and fed hot soup and crusty bread at the large wooden table (that was much better). The soup tasted a little strange, but I was so hungry that I did not care. I drank it all up in no time at all and looked around for some more.

Easy enough to be read aloud to younger listeners and challenging enough for older hands to hold, Jumble and the Turtle King is the second adventure in the ‘Postal-Bear’ series.

Each chapter is just the right length for a great night-time storytelling experience for both the listener and the reader and, with seven chapters in each story, your bedtime reading needs are met for a full week.

About the Author

David was born before there were such things as televisions, electricity or the written word.

He attended an all-girl comprehensive school (until he failed the medical) and was once the richest person in the known universe.

David currently lives on a small asparagus plantation in Fiji with his two cats and an invisible ostrich called Gerald. Gerald is particularly partial to asparagus, therefore, David is still to realise his second fortune…

Well, the bit about the cats is true!

He also loves Doctor Who, KFC and ice cream, but not always at the same time.

About Author

I am a little lost bear. I have lost my owner, my friends, my home and my memory. I do have some cloudy memories of a little girl but I cannot see her face when I close my eyes. I cannot remember anything else about my life apart from that. I think my name is Jumble. That was the name given to me by the old lady who found me. I am trying to find my way back home using the postal service as a way to travel around the world.
