Ambrose Follows His Nose
  • Ambrose Follows His Nose

  • 'Sparkling humour and wonderful characters are Dick King-Smith's trademarks' - Books for Your Children

    An exciting new publication in celebration of the centenary of his birth, a recently discovered funny and poignant animal story by Dick King-Smith, completed by his great granddaughter, Josie Rogers.

    Ambrose may seem like an ordinary rabbit but he has the most extraordinary sense of smell. He can detect any aroma from sweets to kittens - and even niffy foxes!

    He lives with his family in a hutch and is visited every day by Biddy, who is desperate to take him home to be her pet - if only her mum and dad would let her. Biddy trains Ambrose to become a tracker rabbit - which comes in very handy when Ambrose's little sister Roly goes missing. But when Biddy's family find themselves in real danger, can Ambrose's sensitive nose save the day?

Josie Rogers is the great granddaughter of Dick King-Smith. She was born in London but moved to the west coast of Scotland aged nine and has pretty much been there ever since. After a period working in France, she studied English literature and creative writing at the University of Glasgow. As a child, Josie much preferred books to pets and people. Now, though, her favourite activities involve her family and their dogs. She writes prose and poetry, some of which has been published in various anthologies. When she isn't writing or reading, she's generally making something, like bread or a silly joke. She currently works as an editor in Glasgow.
