Smokey – This is a story about a little hen called Smokey who went away to have a little sulk and ended up on a strange adventure that lasted for two hundred miles and three whole days.
What does a little hen have to do to attract the attention of her favourite Vet?
The story of Smokey came via an email from David Aggett, a Vet from England, who is married to Yvonne’s niece Beth. The original email is included at the back of the book. At the risk of sounding clichéd, Smokey is ‘based on a true story!’
Smokey was originally written and illustrated in watercolours by Yvonne for her niece’s children. It was printed in small numbers using a print-on-demand system but its popularity has seen a larger print run in using a traditional publishing method.
