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.

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'"

The House Next Door - Part Three

Mrs Walnut's flower boxes were looking beautiful. Just in time for the beginning of spring!

"The geraniums smell wonderful!"

Meanwhile, Mr Walnut was getting a tutorial on how to put up a fence from Mrs Beaver. She really is a dab hand at DIY!

"I'm going to learn a lot living next to you, Mrs Beaver"

Mr Beaver put his painting skills into practice, painting the fence was the last job to do.

"You missed a bit, Mr Beaver!"

Finally the scaffolding came down, the window boxes put up and the lawn all cleared and swept. Walnut Grove was ready!

"Thank you so much! We're going to love it here!… Now for the interior!"

Easter Holiday

It's time for a well deserved break! The little ones brought a hot-cross bun picnic to the construction sight on Good Friday, it was time that everyone relaxed for the Easter weekend!

"Oh little ones, thank you"

Michael was having the best time at the Easter Fair in the village square.

"I want that one,… and that one… and that one too!… please"

The Beaver family were looking their absolute best in their Easter Bonnets. Mr Beaver was looking especially dapper.

"Oh Mr Beaver, we look like Fred and Ginger!"

Michael couldn't help but drool a little when he saw the Easter cake stand!

"I think maybe you've had enough sugar for one day!"
"But it's Easter!"

Happy Easter, from the Beaver Family!
