The Diary of Joshua Templeton

Felicity Roma Bowers has just illustrated "The Diary of Joshua Templeton", by Aubrey Fossedale (AKA Mike Roach). It follows on from "The Stoat Rebellion", published last year.

Set between 1964 and 1977 it tells the tale of a young vole named Joshua Templeton who is in the care of English Woodland Orphanages and  decides to write a diary because he has no one to talk to. His cheery disposition and positive manner carry him through the dark years of The Stoat Rebellion.

After being befriended by a paratrooper from the Woodland Central Government Army, Joshua’s life takes twists and turns that would b
e unimaginable for him before. Joshua’s diary tells of happiness, sadness, and a society fighting to maintain its own existence. The theme of surviving bullying is dealt with strongly.

The Diary of Joshua Templeton is for children from 8 to 12 years old.  If you have read The Stoat Rebellion and liked it then this is the book for your kids. Even if you don’t have any kids around its still a good read.

There is much more information, including some more illustrations, on The Stoat Rebellion blog, where you can also order a copy and pay online.

Not to be missed at £4.95 plus £2.50p+p. The Diary of Joshua Templeton is available from the blog, or Lulu.com or directly from us by emailing stoatrebellion@gmail.com
