The Adventures of Zoe and Chloe

RobertGambles

£6.00

Zoe and Chloe are identical and inseparable twins with a determined spirit of independence and a taste for adventure. They spend most of their holidays at their grandparents’ home in the Lake District where many of their adventures take place.

They wander through the moonlit woods seeking the bogle of Bogle Wood and meeting with the ghost on the heights above Windermere. Chloe is captured by the fairies and Zoe meets a squirrel who tells her how to rescue her sister by counting the stones of a stone circle.
A moonlight visit to the famous Castlerigg stone circle finds them involved in the strange rituals of a wicca ceremony and on High Rigg in the Vale of St John they get a fright when they see the Brocken Spectre.
In a Borrowdale wood they encounter an adder and an angry wounded bull. Other adventures take them to Orkney and the Old Man of Hoy, and to Derbyshire where they meet trouble while engaged in the traditional, but risky, autumn pastime of scrumping and with the aid of a friendly fairy they spend a day in the fourteenth century.
The twins may be identical in appearance but they have distinctly different personalities and this does much to add interest to their adventures.
These stories have been enjoyed by readers of all ages from seven to 87 who also expressed their appreciation of the illustrations by Susan Fleming which capture the essential detail so beautifully.
