Farthing Wood - The Adventure Begins




The gripping prequel to the Animals of Farthing Wood by award-winning author Colin Dann.

There had always been otters in the stream running through Farthing Wood - and that had never been a problem for the other animals before: both sets of animals were happy to leave each other alone.

But when there is a shortage of fish in the stream, the otters take to coming ashore for new prey - and that is a problem. Suddenly, the Farthing Wood animals have to compete for food - and they don't like it. Lean Vixen and the others are determined not to starve, and that means deciding on a plan to drive the otters out once and for all . . .
