More About This Title The Forest Tournament


A family of mice engage in the festivities of the annual Forest Tournament at a very secret location deep in the forest.
Based around three characters Big Grandad and his two young grandsons (Leo and Ben). The trio embark on an great adventure.
They are all entered into a various events, pitching themselves against different animal competitors.
All the events will have the reader enthralled. Twists and turns along the way. A wonderful interval show involving a flock of starlings. The final event of the day includes competitors and supporters competing in a tug-o-war across a river, again with a twist.
Illustrations included wonderfully created by Susan Newman
