'The Voles of Old' title graphic, to keep the pretty font
by Vivienne Wilkes ISBN13: 978-0-9548330-1-5 96pp A4 PB

This is the story of a precocious young vole named Foxtail, whose explorations of the (real-life) area of Moseley Bog (in Birmingham, England) lead him to mystery and adventure. With his companion, the trainee Past Master Rye, he must try to find if the legendary voles of old might really be returning to the area, but there are obstacles and adversaries (as well as unexpected helpers) along the way.

With illustrations created by Viv and photographer Stuart Williams, the book can be enjoyed by young and not-so-young readers on a number of levels, with an intriguing rodent's-eye-view of a pocket of natural beauty within a busy modern city.
