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!

It is the middle of July and the summer sun is beating gloriously down on the English countryside. But in Finbar’s Field, things are far from rosy. Norbert, the fat old cart horse is more depressed than ever because Colin the Cuckoo, his only friend in the world, is preparing to fly off for the holiday of a lifetime on the French Riviera... leaving him behind!
The badgers who reside underneath the hedge are no company due to their nocturnal habits, and Delilah, the pretty pony who lives in the next field is continuing to ignore him.
When Colin’s holiday plans go horribly wrong, however, it is down to Norbert to save the day!
Will he manage to transform their field into a passable imitation of the French Riviera without incurring the wrath of Farmer Finbar? And will he win Delilah’s affections in the process?
Another comic caper from Norbert and friends!
