A Landrover with attitude - a happy attitude - growing up in his beloved Cornwall. These are children's stories for kids and grown-ups. Stories about a car that is not in fashion. Cecil is a diesel and as such he is slower and noisier than the other petrol cars from the village. He at first saw this as a handicap but as the stories progress he excels with the strengths he learns he already possesses All the stories are mixed with humour and light hearted satire at a culture obsessed with the belief that the 'right' car will endow the owners with the 'right' image He interacts with a diverse and easily recognised character set; Fred the Cockney Ford. Maurice the Mercedes and Brunswig the BMW - the 'posh' cars from the village. Margo, his auntie, who is a Morris 1000 and many more including his old friend, Michael the Milk Float. Cecil joins in the 'Great Race of Penmucky Village' eager and full of fun but knowing that he is, after all, just a diesel and not expected to win when up against the likes of Maurice and Brunswig. Persistence and a belief, a sense of fun and the joy of being a 4x4 diesel. Does he win? Read on. As the stories progress Cecil becomes perceptibly wiser and more confident. He has a 'girlfriend', Valerie the VW. She is very fond of him but also represents the sensible voice of authority chastising him for all his pranks, 'Puddle Squishing' in particular. The friendship is secure and Cecil knows it can be tested. There are six stories in all. From his first outing that ended up in a ditch with Brunswig: The truth about the 'Beast of Bodmin Moor' and Cats, school dinner ladies from outer Space, nagging Christmas trees and much more. Enjoy a fun read....
