Pauline Kidner lives on a small dairy farm in Somerset surrounded by the wild animals she has rescued and cared for over the years. A family of badgers - including Pauline's favourite, Bluebell - lives in the shed beside the milking parlour, foxes have the run of the tractor shed, Sammy the mink has a hut beside the front door, and there is a barn owl who once spent the night in a central London police cell.
Each chapter of Pauline's delightful book is devoted to an individual animal or a particular family of animals, and her heartwarming story of devotion to animal rescue is crammed full with unusual and hilarious anecdotes.
The author's sense of fun, love of animals and people, and her down-to-earth common sense shine through every page of this gorgeously illustrated book.
With a foreword by wildlife film maker Simon King.
