Off the far tip of Cornwall, beyond Land's End, lie the Isles of Scilly, and on some of the islands live the famous Scilly shrews. In the equally famous Abbey Gardens on Tresco there is a big shed where we humans have put figureheads from off our ships. Well, behind that shed, somewhere in the long grass, is a nest containing one particular family of shrews. There's Mum, Hepzibah, her three little boy shrews, Gimble, Gweal and Kettle, and her two little girl shrews, Tamsin and Flossie. The shrews have lots of bird friends - particularly one named Fluff the Chough - and another of their special friends is a frog named Percy. You may think the life of a shrew is not very interesting, but you couldn't be more wrong. Contained in this book are just a few of the many stories about things that have happened to our little family of Scilly shrews - both their adventures and their misadventures - and I hope you enjoy reading them. Should you ever find yourself on a beach on Tresco, perhaps you will be lucky enough to see a Scilly shrew, or two, or three, or maybe even four!
