Outdoor Ted & Friends Book 1

Out Now!

Outdoor Ted is more than just an educational resource for school visits. The older we get the more we add to our offer. It came naturally to us that once Jo-Ellen Art had brought Outdoor Ted to life via an illustration that this little family would grow. 

The Skylark Nature reserve is full of life and is also home to The Yorkshire Swan and Wildlife Hospital many pupils and staff get to visit all the fantastic work that happens at the hospital and Stacey herself visits the local swans regularly so it seemed inevitable that an injured swan would be the next character to be added. 

Once all the characters were in place Stacey put the plot of the story together incorporating some of team building activities that Outdoor Ted deliver both at the Skylark and in schools.

With a little help from team member Sarah the book was ready for it's illustrations to be added. 

Each character will have its own book with 'Angel Gets Her Wings' for book two already written with the illustrations on there way.

Book one sees Outdoor Ted and his family lose their home, through a series of mini adventures The Teds not only find a new home but they make many new friends on the way. All the friends they meet have their own issues to deal with but it's amazing what a little kindness and hard work can do. Once you have read the book why not go out and make your own adventure in the woods or your own back garden. 


We would love to see your photos and add them to our gallery of families enjoying and acting out our book. 


At the moment the book is available as a physical copy that is signed by Stacey and one of the characters in the book Maddie (the only human in the book) for £10 +P&P We will soon be adding a downloadable PDF version and there will be an Amazon version as well.
