A New Menu

A fresh delivery of locally sourced fish arrived this morning at the seafood restaurant


"Mr Neptune, get your thinking hat on, we've a menu to write!"

Mrs Beaver and Mrs Neptune were busy sprucing up the restaurant while the boys and little Sandy Neptune helped with the fishy delivery.



"One day, poppa, I'd like to be a fisherman and deliver fish to you!"
"You can be whatever you want to be Sandy!"



The smells coming from the kitchen where magnificent, the boys were cooking up a storm. So many new dishes to add to the menu!



"Mr Beaver, thats the best fish curry I've ever tried, and believe me, I've had a few!"


The new menu choices were drawing quite a crowd!


"Look daddy, Jumbo fish fingers!"


The new menu went down a real treat. This season was going to be a busy one!


"Compliments to the chef, this fish platter is outstanding!"

Renee's Day At The Beach

Renee and her friends were making the most of the summer holidays and lovely weather by heading down to the beach. Renee had a great idea; they were going to make sands cultures! 

"Im going to make the biggest whale!"

The girls were having such fun creating all sorts of things out of sand!

"Well I might just make the tail, for now."

After a lovely afternoon, it was time for tea and cake. Renee had another fantastic idea.



"There you go ladies, a sand-table and sand-chairs!"

Paddling Pool

The summer holidays were in full swing, and the weather was being very kind over Sylvania. Mrs Beaver decided to fill up the paddling pool so the little ones could cool down.


"I'm going to canon ball right in!"

The boys were having a whale of a time splish splashing about. Then Michael had an idea…


"Jerome, get me my cape!"

With Mrs Beaver's flower pot and a piece of wood from the tool shed, Michael made a little ramp leading up to the paddling pool. He asked Jerome to lay in-between, he was going to perform a very very dangerous stunt on his tricycle!



"OH NO!!!!"

But it went very very wrong. Just missing little Jerome, he fell off his bike, smashing Mrs Beavers plant pot, and grazing both his knees.



"Now, now little one. I think it's bedtime for our little daredevils"


When the little ones were all tucked up in bed, it was time for Mr and Mrs Beaver to enjoy the paddling pool.

"Canapé Mrs Beaver?"
"I don't mind if I do!"

The Book Signing

Everyone in Sylvania was very excited, Mr Beaver's book was being launched at the Applewood Department store and he was going to be doing a book signing!


"Mr Beaver?! Here?! How exciting!"

Mr Beaver was very nervous, he didn't know if anyone would turn up. But he had nothing to worry about, when they opened the doors at the start of the day, there was a queue around the block!


"I… I… I, I'm sorry, I'm nervous. I've never met a celebrity before!"

 To celebrate the success of the book, Mr Beaver treated the whole family to tea, cake and ice-cream at pippins cafe.


"Michael and Jerome, just be careful, that's your third bowl of ice cream!"

Michael spotted his absolute favourite, lemon drizzle cake.


"Michael!!!"

Mr Beavers Book - part 3

Mr Beaver was hard at work on the front cover of his book. The boys tried hard to get a peek at it, but Mr Beaver didn't want anyone to see it until he was finished. 


"I think I can see us, Jerome!" 
He was finally finished, so took it straight the Sylvanian Publishing Inc. The publisher was very very happy and wanted to send Mr Beavers book straight to print!



"I think it's going to be a hit Mr Beaver, I really do!"

The postman dropped off a batch of his printed book "The Bicycle Adventure". Everyone was so excited, it looked great!



"Oh Mr Beaver, we're so proud of you!"

Mr Beavers book - part two

Mr Beaver put together all his sketches and storyboards and headed to Sylvanian Publishing Inc. He was very nervous, he was terribly worried he'd forgotten something!


"Don't worry Mr Beaver, you'll blow them away I'm sure!"

He finally arrived, after a few deep breaths he plucked up the courage to enter the building.


"Come on Mr Beaver, you can do this!"

Well, the publisher Mr Pembroke loved his book idea so much, he wanted Mr Beaver to get to work on the front cover so they could get it printed ASAP!



"I think I'm going to enjoy working with you Mr Beaver!"

He worked day and night to get it finished. The boys couldn't wait to see what he'd painted.



"Can you see Jerome? I think thats you and me!"

Mr Pembroke the publisher was over the moon. He thought Mr Beavers book was going to be great success!



"I'm over the moon, I'll call you in when the first batch arrives!"

Mr Beavers Book - Part One

Mr Beaver was itching to get back to work, but he was having a serious creative block. He just did not know what to paint…



"I think I'm going to need another wastepaper bin!"

As he was daydreaming out of his studio window, he started to have an idea!



"I know just what to draw!"

He asked Michael to do a few posses on his tricycle, which he was more than willing to do.



"Look Poppa, one leg!"

He then went back to his studio and started to put all the images together; he had a great idea for a children's story.



"I'll get these ideas drawn up and sent away to 'Sylvanian Publishing inc'"
