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.
