WIZZY the Animal Whisperer
Author Anthony Ridgway
Artist Suzan Houching
A farm holiday becomes so much more than Dan and Wizzy expect, when a quiet ride down a country lane with their friends, James and Sophie, exposes a mystery.
The team’s detective skills get them into danger and they discover there is more to Wizzy than any of them had guessed.
“Wizzy, the Animal Whisperer made me laugh out loud.” David Suchet
“. . . funny, imaginative and extremely visual, and the wonderful illustrations by the talented Suzan Houching bring this great story to life even more.” Ros Holness
Anthony’s adventure story has a unique take on life – just as he has always been reliant on his wheelchair, the children are reliant on Wizzy’s skills to solve the problems they come across. But it’s not all plain sailing, especially when Wizzy can’t understand the idiosyncrasies of human speech.
With Suzan’s wonderful watercolours the story comes to glorious life, touched with humour and character, adding another dimension to be enjoyed by the reader.
Well done to Anthony Ridgway who has published his first book. Wizzy is about a boy and his wheelchair. Anthony has had much support from the local community – as well as actor David Suchet – who was at the launch…
