(4 customer reviews)

This delightful, often funny, feel good story is for animal lovers of all ages.

A simple woodsman finds himself in the midst of a daring, ambitious plot which could alter the course of history. Completely unaware of his part in the unfolding drama and the danger he is in, Amos has only one thing on his mind – to find a way back to his everyday existence four hundred years ago.

Meanwhile, a free-spirited hound, a food-obsessed cat and his bossy, opinionated sister are enjoying an idyllic existence deep in the countryside until they encounter the stranger from another time, who needs their help.

Stranded by some mysterious alchemy in the twenty first century, Amos’ fate depends entirely on this motley band of companions with a simple and unique view of the world. These friends innocently set about helping Amos in their own inimitable way without realising their actions are about to disrupt carefully laid plans with disastrous consequences.

Folklore and legend invisibly entwine with the here and now to create a heart-warming tale of everyday magic and adventure. ‘The Woodsman’ unlocks hidden worlds around us through the lives of three unlikely heroes who discover that deep in the ancient woods, time can stand still.

    …I must say I really enjoyed this book, it was easy to read but not childish at all. I became involved in the animals adventures and loved the descriptive writing. It was lovely that I could relate to their stomping ground, but I am sure it would be just as enjoyable for those who don’t know the area where it is set. I found the twists in the tale to include historic facts and imagination were just right, making it a great way to learn about how the civil war affected ordinary folk.
    It would be an excellent book to read aloud to younger children too

    I read all the time, although not usually this kind of tale. I found it an absolute pleasure to read and became very involved in this magical story. I loved all the animal characters, and couldn’t wait to find out what happened to them. I think anyone of any age would really enjoy this book, and I would recommend it to anyone (or buy it for them as a gift!).

    A delightful book, well written, interesting historical and folklore information, very vivid descriptions of the countryside – one can visualise the places – the characters are very well drawn (one can’t help but fall in love with Bungy!). Fantasy is not a genre I usually like but I really enjoyed this and so I have given it 5 stars. In my opinion it would make a brilliant animated film.

    An intriguing story set both in the present time and in the Civil War, also picking up some of the history and geography of the local area. I particularly enjoyed the animal characterization and the interaction between them.
