FLYING FURBALLS  2016-2020

Written and illustrated by Donovan Bixley
Softcover 
210 x 148mm (portrait), 112 pages 

 

Flying Furballs is a fully illustrated junior fiction series aimed at 6–10 year olds. It's pussycats in planes in Paris!

Our hero is Claude D’Bonair, a young pilot in the Cat Air Corps, keen to prove his worth to the older pilots and live up to the memory of his father. Will cats and dogs ever live in harmony again? And will Claude survive with his nine lives intact? With cat tricks and catastrophe, Dogfight is the first in an explosive new series that will have young readers wanting to read beyond the very last page. Full of the romance of Paris at the dawn of aviation, and fully illustrated on every page, you'll be barking mad if you don't get your paws on Flying Furballs.

“A well-thought-out, brilliantly sustained and thoroughly witty series. Flying Furballs is a great series because it combines painstaking attention to detail (lovingly restored aircraft, complete with detailed plans) with the world’s most awful wordplay. It is genuinely funny on several levels… Donovan Bixley’s splendid illustrations are on almost every page, adding an extra layer of delight to the verbal mayhem. Particular pictorial pleasure is offered by the endpapers.” 
Trevor Agnew, Magpies Children's Book review

FIVE STARS FLYING FURBALLS 3 MOST WANTED

My picky 7 year old son loved this book

My 7 year old son loved this book with theme of War and plane fights and its illustrations (yes my son checks to see if there are illustrations before reading the book. I loved it because it's well written with good vocabulary, range of adjectives and good sentence structure. Good wholesome content and would highly recommend it.
