Down on Red Bucket Farm - Francis Emery

Until the creation of this book, my only claim to fame was sharing my christian name, and my birthday with the Pope. It was very good of him to point that out. We have never met of course, but
it was the chance meeting with a mouse, here deep in the South Downs, that has inspired everything within.
        Fairly soon after my own creation, the need to make people laugh was a discovery I enjoyed making, and I have never let go of that. My first poem exists somewhere in a school magazine c1960, but creating humorous verse has only really started for me in recent years.
    It is the people around me though, who have pushed me towards ‘Down on Red Bucket Farm’.   
    Kind comments about my work, but especially hearing people laugh out loud at the antics of the characters within made it all happen.

The Farmers Lot, Ivor Dungheap available November 2016 - The Farmer’s Lot is a very funny book written in verse about a farmer, Mick, his wife, Dotty, and their son, Freddie. The amazing caricature illustrations bring the book to life, enhancing the story of everyday madness on the family’s Dorset farm. The antics are set across the four seasons of the year.

Boxed-sets of books and individual items

We all have our favourite, saddest and most exotic that often make us look back on our childhood through rose-tinted spectacles and see endless summer holidays, with lashings of ginger beer, hidden worlds or our favourite super heroes.

Two of Tricorn’s favourite contributions to this genre are ‘Clever Freddie the Mischievous Fox’ and ‘Granny’s Gorgeous Alphabet’. Both are beautifully illustrated, the first by a very talented illustrator in colour wash and ink, the second by the author’s own quirky and colourful photographs making both ‘pick me up and buy me’ books. But, children’s books don’t have to be full of illustrations. Intelligent design can make text only books engaging, black and white pages come alive and seemingly impossible conundrums work, which is what we are good at.
