Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nichole Ford
Norbert, an old, fat horse, lives on Finbar’s Farm. A gullible and forgetful animal, Norbert does not recognize his own reflection. His only friend is Colin, a cuckoo, who guides and mentors him every day. With all of his crazy and spirited amnesia moments, the only thing this horse can remember is his true love: the beautiful Delilah. She is a young pony that Norbert adores, but he has one problem. Norbert’s teeth are green! How can he face Delilah with his ugly molars? Colin, the cuckoo, goes on an adventure to help Norbert get his teeth cleaned. Colin travels to Mr. Finbar’s house to steal a toothbrush and toothpaste, bringing him face-to-face with death. Sutherland takes his readers on a funny adventure of this crazy horse that will do anything to clean his teeth to impress Delilah. This chapter book is filled with large words that captivate young minds and challenge them to pick up this new style of talking. Children and adults alike will enjoy this exciting ride over and over again. A must-read book, this novel will make readers laugh while it teaches them the true meaning of friendship. Reviewer: Nichole Ford; Ages 4 to 8.

Meet the Author

James Sutherland was born in Stoke-on-Trent, England, many, many, many years ago. So long ago, in fact, that he can't remember a thing about it. The son of a musician, he moved around lots as a youngster, attending schools in the Isle of Man and Spain before returning to Stoke where he lurked until the age of 18. After gaining a French degree at Bangor University, North Wales, James toiled manfully at a variety of office jobs before making a daring escape through a fire exit, hell-bent on writing silly nonsense full-time. In his spare time, James enjoys hunting for slugs in the garden, chatting with his gold fish and frolicking around the house in his tartan nightie. James is best known as the writer of the "Norbert" stories, comic tales about the adventures of a dopey old horse and his irritable chum, Colin the Cuckoo. In addition to the Norbert stories, James has four other titles currently available which are as follows: Roger the Frog - A spectacularly silly yarn featuring a special cameo appearance from Norbert. The Tale of the Miserous Mip - A dark, comic tale. Jimmy Black and the Curse of Poseidon - A funny full-length adventure story. Frogarty the Witch - FOUR short stories about the world's foulest witch rolled into one book! "I'm always delighted to hear from any of my readers and will personally respond to any questions you may have - Please visit www.jamessutherlandbooks.com for contact details and all the latest news! Cheerio for now!" James
