Classic hand illustrated English children’s book for children. A delightful way to discover the UK and learn new vocabulary.
Burlington is exhausted after working at the Bank of England for the day so is thrilled when he is invited to the Highlands of Scotland with his best friends Marmaduke, Mooey and Darling. The friends are invited to stay at Inverleakie Castle by Marmaduke’s cousins. The castle is very pretty, nestling by a loch, but has a leaking roof and no hot water and haggis cooked by none other than Mrs. McBurn. Burlington’s secret supply of carrot cake mysteriously goes missing with strange noises in the night. He has great fun fishing, flying in a helicopter and judging the carrot cake competition at the local Highland Games. Burlington soon forgets washing in the ice cold loch and has to solve the mystery at Inverleakie Castle…

Burlington comes to life through the pen of Madeleine Hall. Hand illustrated by the author, and with a delightfully arch sense of humour the series charts the somewhat haphazard – and even a little bumbling – exploits of the quintessential British bear from Mayfair to the City to the Scottish Highlands and back to meet The Queen. Suitable from ages four to adulthood, the books are written to pique the curiosity of the explorative young reader and open up a highly individual world of words.
Madeleine started her career at Buckingham Palace working for the Equerry to The Queen where she worked for a number of years before moving to the auction house, Sotheby’s in Bond Street. She worked for the Head of Old Master Paintings for eight years where she swapped military engagements for the artistry of Canaletto to Raphael!
