The Bunbury bunnies are nothing if not prolific. It seems only days ago that the first tales of Buntham, Goldenhare and Co were hot off the presses , and now they are off again on tour, this time with Rajbun on his adventures in India.
This is the fourth in the new series of Bunbury tales, and Rajbun has been allowed the time to fall in love with the lovely Rose Patel while performing all the usual heroic feats that we have come to expect of the Bunburys.
Once again David English and Jan Brychta have bough us a charming and amusing tale, with all the familiar outrageous puns, to delight us all.
ENGLAND, LEICESTERSHIRE AND BUNBURY C.C.
David English M.B.E founded the Bunbury Charity Cricket team in 1986. Since then he and a host of celebrity players have raised over 14 million pounds! for different charities.
David has produced, written and narrated twelve cartoons 'The Bunbury Tales' which were shown on CH4. He has also written 'Bunbury Tales' children's books - This is one of them.
Arriving in an India of explosive colours and kaleidoscopic characters, little Rajbun is smitten with passion for the beautiful but elusive Rose Patel, daughter of the evil tyrant Katman of Kathmandu. Forced into a horror filled contest of flashing claws and snarling fangs against the might of Rani, the largest tiger on earth, Rajbun comes face to face with fear in its most naked form.
How this intrepid Bunbury and his trusty friend - Ellie the Elephant pit their wits agains the Himalayan Katman and his Bungal tigers at the palace of the Winds is told with wit and verve by David English and captivatingly illustrated by Jan Brychta in the gripping tale of Rajbun's Story.
I have listed this book as signed? as on the front endpaper there is a dedication written in blue ink which reads:
Love Dave x
Whether this is David English, David Gower or another and totally unknown 'Dave' I couldn't say, but will leave for you to decide.
CONDITION: There is some surface marking - light scratches and rubbing to the cover. There is a little bumping to the end of the spine which has 'turned' but not otherwise damaged the laminate. A little bumping to the tips of the corners with a small amount of colour loss to two of them, and some small bumps in places to the extreme edges - Actually quite light shelfwear for an older book. It is nice and clean and bright with no fading.
Inside it has white endpapers with the dedication already mentioned above. It is Excellent throughout. I can't really see any signs of use, it is beautifully clean and bright, the pages are tight and there are no tears.
The illustrations, done it bright and vibrant colours are fantastic - I have picked out a few above to show you.
