The Lions of Trafalgar

by

New Companions. New Fun. An Awesome New Adventure It’s summer; Jack, convinced that the Kingdom of Sudana is safe at last, is only thinking about football and his forthcoming holiday to France. That is until people with the name Jack Burnside are attacked and murdered.

When Jack’s home is also destroyed, there can be little doubt who is behind it – Mendorun. Yet, how can that be … Mendorun is dead, isn’t he?

Jack must warn Jacob but how? The Kingdom of Sudana lies a whole starlit night away and Bud, the camel, has been reduced to slivers at wood. His only chance is to find Adolphus, one of Nelson’s guardian lions, and bring him to life

The Lions of Trafalgar is the 3rd book in the Jack Burnside trilogy: the other two are, A Dangerous Game and The Bird Children

"I decided long ago that you can either be cowed by the absurdities of life or lampoon them."

This was the snippet she red: My love affair with both life and words began in 1969, when Fashion Magazine paid me the goodly sum of £25 to write an article about travel. Other articles followed and from these humble beginnings came children's books, full of rib-tickling humour and scintillating action.
However, my desire to wax lyrical about the absurdity of life remained and whilst journeying by train to some far distant school or to a signing at Waterstones, I began scribbling down my thoughts. Blogs, anecdotes and short stories followed. Now, of an age to remember the past, I thought, why not? There has to be heaps of people around like me. Well, not exactly like me but near enough to enjoy and remember how life once was.

Barbara Spencer

In 1967, considering herself to be destined for a life of mediocrity, Barbara Spencer hi-tailed it to the West Indies to watch cricket, the precursor to a highly colourful career spanning three continents in which she was caught up in riots, wars, and choosing Miss World. An award winning children's author, Broken is Barbara's first outing writing for adults. A finalist in the fiction category of the Book Excellence Awards, Broken was first published on Kindle. The paperback version will be published the spring of 2017.
