  • Events for 2019

I am currently working on this season's calendar. Watch this space.

A Story, - Whilst at the West Somerset Railway Rally 2017 a man suggested I went to Blue Anchor to find the man there who had 4 or 5 Austin Gipsy trucks. He told me this man was really keen on them and did not use anything else. I asked how he knew my father (I assure you it could not have been anybody else). He replied he was a butcher in Watchet and each morning my father bought some raw meat for his Siamese cat. Then I said he must have been the devil who tied a pig tail on the back of Father's Gipsy and he drove round all day before somebody pointed it out to him. This butcher admitted his crime, so I said "Got you at last!".  Now days it would be bullying, but 50 years ago it was just good fun.

Reader Feedback

Hi Alan,
           Just a thankyou note for all your work in sending the books (to Australia) etc. They arrived a couple of weeks ago though haven’t had a chance to read them to all the grand kids yet. More inside time when the weather gets colder. If you ever bring out more Davey books please let me know. I’ll always be  David Brown fan for sure.
Thanks again for your help, Cheers, David J.

 

"Davey to the Rescue"

I like this story even more than Waking up Davey. The expressions on the tractors are so convincing.

Lots to see in the illustrations.

The Book

Waking up Davey is a true story for young children and seems to hit the right note judging from the pressure to get the next story out . Enjoy this one though. It would not have happened had my friend Mary Oldham, a local artist agreed to illustrate the text. 

As promised book 2 , Davey to the Rescue, arrived and has been very popular. The news is that book 3 is at the printers. Look out for "Davey's New Friends" it will be available for Dulverton by Starlight. 123
