Personal Quote:

Much as I love 'The Wind in the Willows' and the works of Beatrix Potter, I never dress my animals in clothes. They behave as animals should behave, with the exception that they open their mouths and speak the queen's English.


He was a prolific writer, with more than 100 books since 1978. See more »
