Extract from 'Berty Tumblefluff and Friends'
One breezy spring’s day, a warm wind blew through Berty Tumblefluff’s magical forest. The little
badger was wandering about the wood, thinking of what to do with himself, when the rustling of
paper sounded from somewhere close by. Berty was surprised to see a very strange looking, thin
sort of book blowing towards him. He reached up and caught it with his fury little paws. The
beautiful, colourful pictures all over the book amazed him. It wasn’t leather and metal, like all the
books Berty had seen before. Its cover was made of thin, fragile looking paper.
“Wow!” gasped Berty, “You’re so beautiful! Even Greta Gumboot doesn’t have any books
Little Berty opened the book, turning the pages carefully, so as not to damage it.
It was filled with picture after picture of brave looking people in brightly coloured clothing.
Berty wasn’t very good at reading, but what he could make out were the words ‘SUPER
HERO’,’GOOD VERSES EVIL’, and ‘SAVES THE DAY!”
“WOW!” said Berty, “A super-hero! That’s even better then a regular hero. I wish I could be
one of those!”
Then there was a rustling in the green flowering rhododendrons behind him. Out popped
plump, little Greta gumboot the good witch, in her long, purple dress, brown boots and snow white
pointed hat covering her shoulder length red hair.
“Gotcha Cyril!” she called triumphantly…”Oh wait a minute. Where’s that silly snake got to
now? I was sure I had him! Hello Berty. What’s that you’ve got there?”
“Hello Greta.” he replied, “It’s a wonderful book! It’s not just full of heroes, but superheroes!”
“That’s very nice Berty! Have you seen Cyril around anywhere? We’re playing hide and
That was when Berty had his fabulous idea!
“Greta, Greta, and ”he said excitedly “You’re wonderful at magic! You could turn me into a
“I don’t know about that Berty.” Greta replied nervously, “A spell like that could go awfully
“Oh go on Greta. Nothing bad will happen! I’ll do all your chores for you super fast if you
make me a super badger.”
“Well” said Greta reluctantly, “I’ll give it a go!”
Once upon a time when Greta was very different she would have used her dark wand for
the spell. Now a few choice words would have to do!
“With suit of green, a mask of blue, you have a red cape wrapped round you.
Powerful paws to open locked doors, you’ll be saving lives whilst others snore,
If you look to the skies, there Berty flies, a super badger is such a surprise."

Lee Pritchett has done it again. He has a new book titled, Bert Tumblefluff and Friends. As his last book The Tale of Greta Gumboot and Other Stories, this is also a collection of stories set in a magical world. Many of these stories are sequels to previous stories from the first book but they are easy to pick up even having not read the first book.
Greta Gumboot, Gilbey, and Mr. Bumble return to new adventures any child will enjoy. Broken up into many separate stories, this is a book that will be hard for children to put down. Yet with each story a complete tale in itself children can finish one and have the anticipation of a new one for tomorrow.
Holly and the Epheline were my favorites in Pritchett’s first book and they continue to be my favorite in the new book. Pritchett has outdone himself with stories and illustrations. Many of these stories could have been a storybook by itself, but Pritchett has compiled them into one big fun book. I think your children will enjoy Bert Tumblefluff and Friends as much as they liked The Tale of Greta Gumboot and Other Stories.
