What seems like forever ago, long before L was even remotely capable of reading or even truly understanding what we read to him we started the Badger the Mystical Mutt series of books. We’ve got loads of them, all of the first series in actual fact. Continue reading Badger the Mystical Mutt and the Sparkle Bandits
