Book One – Biggles Goes to Work

Biggles Goes to Work is the first Biggles book introducing Biggles the Jack Russel, who is going off to work in the field with Farmer Joe. Biggles loves to help out with the land cultivation and hay bailing, and takes to his jobs with diligence and enthusiasm!

Working the farm can be hot, dusty and tiring work, but Biggles enjoys contributing and helping farmer Joe, unlike Cat, who prefers to be lazy and becomes bored and cranky in her idleness. At the end of the day, Biggles finds his effort is greatly appreciated. He reflects on how good it feel to help others, and snuggles up to the fire when work is done.

Book themes: This book taps into resilience, work ethic, altruism and values.

Book Two – Biggles Finds his Superpowers

Biggles Finds his Superpowers is the second in the series following on from Biggles Goes to Work. This book uses delightful rhyming verse and stunning watercolour illustrations to tell the tale of friendship and self-discovery as a little dog learns his superpowers (aka, character strengths).
On a lovely summer’s day, Biggles is out visiting his farm friends, Lochie the Clydesdale, Sheri the sheep, and Tiddles the cat. He sees that each of them has a special quality that he admires. In comparison, he feels like there is nothing special about him. With the help of his friends, Biggles learns that he does indeed have special strengths. He is kind, and courageous, and most of all, his greatest superpower is being a good friend. Biggles finally sees himself in a different light, and feels proud of his uniqueness.

Book Three – The Little Dog That Could

Biggles is a good dog, who tries hard to help out farmer Joe on the farm. Sometime though, mastering new skills can be really hard. Biggles struggles with some of the farm tasks, only to find that less than helpful onlookers, in the form of some teasing bunnies, a critical fox and sniggering mice, laugh at him from the sidelines. Thankfully, Biggles learns to believe in himself, and has the courage to try again. He manages to succeed with his tasks, and feels proud and confident in himself.
 Book Themes: This book taps into resilience, courage and self-belief.
The Little Dog That Could will be released mid-2020.
