Deep Down Cowboys (2011)
For 5-11 year olds. By Daniel Jamieson.
Somewhere a hundred fathoms deep a Russian submarine chugs through the ocean. It’s hard living on a submarine. You’re cooped up night and day for months on end in a three hundred foot long, thirty foot wide, three-storey tin can. So when Nikolai moseys on board with his secret stash of Westerns the crew are enthralled – wide open prairies, cowboys, ten-gallon hats and horses called Trigger. They have to keep it quiet, mind, the boss hates all things American…. But in the dead of night those Russians wear Stetsons, drawl like John Wayne and stage rodeos, yeehaw! And when there’s big trouble onboard, Nikolai and his friends, The Magnificent Three, are there to save the day!
A cracking tale of riding into the sunset and finding freedom.
The life story of a man called John. And an apple tree.
The story of a man and an apple tree are told side by side. Full of the usual things that lives contain - blizzards, bicycles, rock’n’roll, train sets, heatwaves, love, blossom, accidents, hurricanes, fruit, babies and false teeth. A delightful story told without the need to utter a single word.More Information Book Now
