An exciting new publication in celebration of the centenary of Dick’s birth in 1922!
An unfinished manuscript called Ambrose Follows His Nose was recently discovered in Dick’s daughter’s attic, and this funny and poignant animal story by Dick King-Smith was completed by Dick’s great granddaughter, Josie Rogers.
Ambrose may seem like an ordinary rabbit but he has the most extraordinary sense of smell. He can detect any aroma from sweets to kittens – and even niffy foxes!
He lives with his family in a hutch and is visited every day by Biddy, who is desperate to take him home to be her pet – if only her mum and dad would let her. Biddy trains Ambrose to become a tracker rabbit – which comes in very handy when Ambrose’s little sister Roly goes missing. But when Biddy’s family find themselves in real danger, can Ambrose’s sensitive nose save the day?
