There are very few books aimed at a younger shedworking reader, but Cathy Watts' The Woodies by the Ponds is an honorable exception. Cathy writes at her home in Tortington Priory from her garden office, a Writer's Retreat model from Scotts of Thrapston inspired by Virginia Woolf's writing hut. It also features in the Sussex-based author's book, illustrated by Emma Ball, which focuses on the 'Woodies', tiny folk who travel on the backs of dragonflies and have adventures with the wildlife around the Priory's ponds.
Cathy's previous books will also be of interest as they feature the 'Sandies', creatures who live under beachhuts and come out at night to tidy up after humans.
