About the Author:

Clive Tandy is the creator and author of Quarry grove. The first story in the series was written some twenty plus years ago, (May be a little ahead of its time) and due to the fact his grand daughter read it and said she thought it was cool, decided to write a whole series. The first one Hicky gets his wings begins to introduce the characters to the reader ready for Crusty Pie From Mars, the second in the Quarry grove series of books. As a youngster Clive managed to sneak into art school, though not being that good at art, he managed to win a couple of prizes for his imaginative and creative attitude towards art. Getting an artist who is able to draw the characters for Quarry grove as Clive sees them proved very difficult at first, he actually met with five artists and just as he was about to give up he met James Mclean. James was immediately able to draw the characters as Clive described them. Clive has also written other work; Muriel Gossard in Space, this is also a series of stories which he hopes James Mclean will work on with him. Clive has also written a book of poetry which he hopes to publish in the near future. Clive also has a web site: www.insideclivesmind.com he is hoping to develop this in the near future, plus he has been working on a video called, Body Maintenance For The Over Fifties. Not to mention he is also a black belt 2nd Dan karate expert, and is taking grade four in classical piano and can speak German and Spanish. The guy is a genius.

Book Description Trafford Publishing, Canada, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. R. James McLean (illustrator). Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Quarry Grove is a small community sat just on the edge of the Known Universe, where Hicky the Caterpillar has applied to the B.A.U.C. (Butterflies Association of Unwinged Caterpillars) for his permanent Wings many, many times. Although he has successfully obtained his training Wings on a couple of occasions, so far Hicky has been lucky if he has managed to keep his learner wings for more than a day. The reason for Hicky s constant failure to achieve his full Wings is his terrible safety record - he tends to spend more time landing on his neighbours than he does in the clouds. With the Butterfly Association meeting at Log Hall already arranged, Hicky is feeling confident that he will get his full Wings. This time, he has enlisted the help of Snirell Snail, (who is convinced his granddad is a wizard) plus with the aid of an invention by Percy Verence, (the only scientist worm in the Grove). With the support of his friends, Hicky is feeling a little more optimistic that his meeting with the B.A.U.C will finally achieve his dream of becoming a butterfly! However there is a sinister plot taking shape! Crooked cockroach Eddy Kray and his confused sidekick Boris the Spider have other plans for Hicky the Caterpillar and Percy s fabled new flying invention. Will the Temporary Winged Party go ahead at the Slug and Sucker? Will Snirell Snail and Berty Beetle be able to hide their fear of the dark when the lights go out at Log Hall? Will PC Bluebottle be able to stop Eddy Kray and Boris the Spider in time for his Fly-kovsky recital night? Read the story and find out the answers to all these questions. Hicky Gets His Wings is the first tale in the fully illustrated Quarry Groveseries. Seller Inventory # AAV9781425149741
