The Animals of Farthing Wood Summary

The Animals of Farthing Wood by Colin Dann

I think you're forgetting something, Adder' said Badger. 'Before we began our journey we all swore an oath, including you.' When bulldozers enter Farthing Wood, the animals must escape before their homes are destroyed. They promise to stick together and protect each other, but their journey is laced with danger. They are caught in a fire, they nearly drown in a river and their loyalty is put to the test. Will their pact hold?

About Colin Dann

Colin Dann was born in Richmond in 1943. After leaving the local Grammar School he worked first for a large textile company before his real love - the world of books - brought him a job in publishing at William Collins in London where he worked as a manager in the Fontana paperback division. During this time, in odds hours at home, he wrote his first book THE ANIMALS OF FARTHING WOOD which was published finally in 1979 by William Heinemann after several rejections. It was an immediate success, winning the Arts Council of Great Britain's National Book Award for Children's Literature and has been translated into sixteen languages. The book has never been out of print since first publication. Six sequels and one prequel have followed and enjoyed similar success. In 1992 a major animation series, based on the Farthing Wood Stories and funded by the European Broadcasting Union, appeared on BBC television and simultaneously across Europe, attracting critical acclaim and great popularity. Colin has been a leading children's author for more than thirty years. In addition to the FARTHING WOOD books he has written many other animal stories including a trilogy about a pride of African lions. He is married and lives with his second wife Susie in a converted Oast House on the Sussex / Kent borders.
