In the past, the mysterious Jyk the Treebender has come to their rescue, but she is now old and frail. It's Lemmy, the badger with the limp, who steps forward when he is needed. But on either side of Gagswiller stand two monstrous hounds ready to terrorise and destroy the entire community of animals.

About the Author:
Growing up in a mining community I went through the early stages of school as a reluctant reader. But somehow books began to fight among themselves to get my attention round about the time I went to Aberdeen University in Scotland to study English Literature, History and Sociology. A Masters Degree followed and then some lecturing before a dramatic change of direction sent me off designing and making painted wooden toys. They sold all over the world. Pieces of mine are in the permanent collections of the Museum of Childhood in London and Le Galerie des Jouets at the Louvre in Paris. Contact with an illustrator led to, first of all, writing four children's picture books for Orion; and, as writer and illustrator, three for Barefoot Books. Of all of those, my personal favorites are Little Eagle Lots of Owls and The Emperor Who Hated Yellow. I stopped making toys in 2000 to train to be a teacher of 7-11 year old children. Last year, 2012, I retired and now spend my time writing children's fiction, English books for schools, working in the garden and going to the theater and jazz concerts. The Badgers of Beechen Cliff was inspired by the families of badgers I frequently meet on summer evenings after visiting friends. Greenway Lane, and all the other roads described in the book are real places you can walk down in the city of Bath, which has been my home now for over thirty years
