Reviews

When we worked on THE GENERAL we wanted to produce a fun and lively story for children, but one to encourage a sympathetic outlook on the world. -- Janet Charters -- Quote<br><br> My first book, THE GENERAL was about a general who made his country the most beautiful in the world instead of the most powerful. Fifty years on, it seems even more relevant as the threat to the environment, hinted at in THE GENERAL, (not to mention the threat of war) is now plain to see -- even by politicians. -- Michael Foreman -- Quote
