Join Norbert the Horse, Roger the Frog and Ernie the Dog in this fun collection of three comic chapter books for young readers!

1. Norbert

Norbert the horse has a problem - his teeth are green! Worried that this will ruin his chances with Delilah, the pretty pony who lives in the next field, Norbert turns to his only friend Colin the cuckoo for help. Will Colin succeed in his desperate mission to pinch a toothbrush from Norbert’s owner, Farmer Finbar? What will happen if the grumpy old farmer catches him? And will Norbert ever win the heart of his beloved Delilah?

The 1st book in the Norbert the Horse series!

2. Roger the Frog

Roger the Frog is sick and tired of his life in the pond. Unloved by his parents, Freda and Frank, and bored to death of eating nothing but flies day after day, he decides that he will venture forth to seek his fortune in the Big Wide World.

Bidding his family farewell, he embarks on a daring voyage of discovery, meeting a series of weird and wonderful creatures along the way, all of whom test his bravery (and his patience!) to its very limit...

Will Roger find the magnificent new life he has always dreamed of? Or will he discover the hard way that sometimes there is no place like home? A spectacularly silly tale featuring a special cameo appearance from Norbert!

3. Ernie the Dog

Banned from the Miller household following an unfortunate incident with Dad’s slipper, Ernie the dog is, quite literally, in the dog house. Things only get worse when his owner, a little girl named Martha, accidentally throws his favourite toy bone into next door’s garden.

With the help of Montgomery, a small, somewhat mangy mouse who lives under an old wheelbarrow, Ernie sets out on a desperate mission to rescue his bone. Little does he know that the garden next door is patrolled by a fierce and bad-tempered bulldog named Max who, having discovered the toy bone, has already decided it belongs to him, and who will not take kindly to anyone he catches trying to steal it...

Will Ernie and Montgomery survive their daring mission?

Will Dad ever find it in his heart to forgive Ernie for ‘The Tartan Slipper Scandal’?

And will Ernie ever manage to recover his most precious possession in the whole wide world – his beloved yellow rubber bone?
