Lesley Rawlinson


Lesley became a fully-fledged author in 2017. Having worked as a teacher for many years, she has always relished the opportunity to share or create stories with children of all ages. Many of her stories reflect her love of the natural world and her desire to share this with her young readers.
She has had four books published over the last couple of years, the most recent being ‘Monty’s Blackbird’ a picture book for 3 – 7 year olds. Lesley is now busy working on a further compilation of short stories from the Woodpecker Tree and is excited about her first children’s novel, ‘De Morville’s Sword’, which she hopes to publish before too long.


Christmas Tales from the Woodpecker Tree

Christmas Tales from the Woodpecker Tree is a compilation of seven stories all about the festive season. Some old favourites return from the first collection, ‘Tales from the Woodpecker Tree’, such as Chester the cheeky tiger and Wilberforce the baby woodpecker. The stories are suitable for reading with children aged 4 and above, while older children will enjoy reading it independently.

Look up to the stars and smile. They’ll be watching…
