I daresay this means I shall have to get out my little step ladder so I can reach the top shelf of my bookcase and get the password for the latest journal!

:lol: I also keep my Journals on the top shelf of a bookcase - and have to stand on a chair to reach them!

Well, the back cover of one Journal did feature a full-colour picture of a book called Two Naughty Pussies! :lol:

Geat start to the serial, really enjoyed the first chapter. Pity there's no mention of blackberries though! :lol:

I’m enjoying this serial. It is fairly similar to the original books in style and I like that. The characters are true to form as well.
Nice work Rob.

I just read the latest chapter, and I must say it is brilliant! I love how you let Daisy have a bit of the limelight too. Great work, Robert! :D
