The Barmies

The Barmies

William Barmie’s parents are beastly. They want him to be a world leader. He just wants to be a vet. Even the ghastly family dog is treated better than him. William plans revenge but can he escape their clutches? Will Cattleford’s Magic River guide him to a better life?

“I laughed like a drain and winced at the awfulness of Mr and Mrs Barmie.  A classic tale of a child standing up to abuse and winning.”  ALEX BRYCHTA – Oxford Reading Tree’s ‘Biff, Chip and Kipper’ books

“An hilarious romp with two of the world’s most downright, dreadful parents and their boy, who triumphs over all their nastiness.  A mad, original and zany story.”  KORKY PAUL – ‘Winnie the Witch’ books

The Barmies is first in The Cattleford Tales Series of books by Jo Sandelson. For 7-11 yr olds.
