Beautifully-illustrated first story in the Tree Fellas series for children aged 4 – 8 with an environmentally friendly theme

About the Book: 

Do you ever wonder what trees do when you are not watching, climbing or hiding underneath them? Their feelings, dreams and adventures?

Once you stop looking at them and your back is turned, Tree Fellas have fun and the adventures begin. When you look back, trees stand straight up in the same place as if they never moved.

Tree Fellas are unique, memorable characters consisting of trees, leaves, bark, flowers, fruit and nuts to help children recognise different species, including hand-drawn illustrations, photos, activities, facts and a log book to encourage interest in trees and environmental awareness amongst 4 – 8 year-olds.  Teachers may wish to incorporate Tree Fellas into classroom learning.

5.0 out of 5 stars  A very timely children’s book!

25th August 2019

“We loved this story!  The illustrations are fantastic and the series is aimed at teaching kids about ecology and how we need to look after our environment better.

I like the way this story is presented as children enjoy learning about nature in a fun, imaginative way.

Recommended!  I think this book should be made available for kids to read in school, especially with the current focus on the damaging effects of climate change, the devastating fires in the rainforest in Brazil, and so on.

It’s time for change, and we need to educate our young children more about our environment.”

Geoffrey Israel Abrahams was born in 1933 in the East End of London to Romanian and Russian parents. A man of character or perhaps a character in this book? What is fact, what is fiction we will never know, he certainly did his national service in the RAF and some of the stories ring true from listening to him growing up.

“This book was given to me, his son, eight years after his death by my mother who found it in a drawer while cleaning out his belongings. The manuscript was typed by my mother Madelaine, 36 years ago on an old-fashioned portable typewriter, the ending however was still handwritten. Having read the book, I decided to have it published in his honour.” – Richard Abrahams

Set in 1951, National Service was part of life in the UK, a young man enters the RAF. During the formation of Israel, his parents killed a boy, now a man intent on revenge, discovers an awful truth.

5.0 out of 5 stars  Surprisingly gripping!

24 April 2019

Verified Purchase

“Wow! This book, published posthumously after being rediscovered in the drawer in which it sat for 35 years, confounds expectations, and is much more than it first appears. Abrahams presents a vivid portrayal of life for a young Jewish man serving in the National Service in post-war Britain, while offering some insight into the brutality of the times during the birth of the state of Israel. Suffice to say he has more on his agenda than National Service, and is no run-of-the-mill recruit. For a first time writer with no professional editorial support (his wife helped him transpose from hand-written to type), Abrahams has not only handled his tale adeptly, but produced a page-turner! And who knew that although 50’s Britain was still rationing some things, there was apparently no shortage of action for a soldier on leave?”

“Recommended as a holiday read, I found it hard to put this book down. Geoffrey may not have been a ‘professional writer’ but he knew how to tell a tale (or two). Highly recommended.”

“Really interesting insight into a largely uncovered section of history. The unglamorous middle-ground made all the more intriguing by the fact that we are never sure how much is true and how much is fiction. For me, the most fascinating aspect was the casual anti-semitism. Choosing to look the other way every day must be exhausting. Whilst we live in interesting times; this is a reminder that unity is the only way.”

************************************************************************

A remarkable account of a single family and their service in the British Armed Forces

About the Book: 

The book provides glimpses of four brothers’ experiences over a period of twenty years on the North West Frontier of India in the 1930s, throughout the Second World War, during the partition of India in 1947 and the Malayan Emergency in the 1950s as well as a rare insight into their mother’s precarious isolation during the war in Jersey under German occupation. Malcolm was killed while fighting the Japanese in Burma; Dick was seriously wounded in Italy while commanding his battalion where he was awarded a DSO; Jerry fought at Monte Cassino; Nigel joined the Royal Marines, retiring in 1968 as a Major General.

The final chapter moves on to describe Dick’s life in Rhodesia, before that country became Zimbabwe. It is extraordinary that so many events and situations occurred within the same family who tackled all their challenges with the courage and tenacity so typical of their generation. The underlying thread throughout the book is the very close bond between them all during such turbulent years.

About the Author: 

Ian McGill was born in Quetta in 1946. His father, one of the four brothers in this book, was then serving with the 8th Gurkha Rifles in the uncertain period before India’s partition. The family moved to Zimbabwe the following year and soon settled on a farm. Ian joined the British Army in 1965 and his military experience included service with commando and airborne forces, operational tours in Northern Ireland, Kuwait and Bosnia and leading the Royal Engineers as their professional head (Engineer-in-Chief). He was awarded the CBE in 1998 and the Queen’s Commendation for Valuable Service in 1999. He left the Army as a Brigadier in 2001.

5.0 out of 5 stars  Interesting account

18 March 2018

Format: Paperback

“Great update to a previous edition where Ian McGill collects together the stories of his father and uncles who all fought in the Second World War. Their collective experiences give a good insight into what it was like to fight across the globe in different theatres of war and in the last years of the British Empire. An interesting twist to the tale is that whilst they were fighting their hometown was surviving the German Occupation of the Channel Islands. At one stage their mother was nearly deported to a concentration camp and only a direct appeal to the German Commandant of the islands saved her. A fascinating vignette of lives lived in a time of great conflict. One of the brothers, Malcolm, was killed fighting the Japanese whilst the others survived and continued on to distinguished military careers after the war. I recommend it. Gary Sheffield, the military historian, rightly reviewed this book as a ‘little gem’.”

5.0 out of 5 stars  Strangers can be fun, and deadly….

11 January 2019

Format: Paperback

“Once You Kiss a Stranger” is a murder plot dressed up as a light romance.  When the story begins, the reader is lulled by the format and seemed familiarity of the plot into believing they are reading a straightforward romance.  The only hint to expect something different from the start is that ‘something’ has happened to Becca.

This leading hint keeps the reader engaged, because even when other elements of the plot seem to fall into place, that mystery is not yet solved.

As the story progresses, it becomes clear that this is not your typical romance, but a darker tale with a twisted man whose evil is slowly revealed.

Great read!
