Jasmine's dad is a farmer, and her mum is a large-animal vet, so Jasmine spends a lot of time caring for animals and keeping them out of trouble. Unfortunately, this often means she gets into hot water herself...In the first in the series, A Piglet Called Truffle, Jasmine rescues a tiny little piglet from certain death. But Jasmine's parents don't believe in farm animals being pets and insist that Truffle must be sold as soon as she's big enough. So Jasmine begins a campaign to keep her - one that doesn't seem to be going very well as Truffle gets older and ever-closer to market...In the end, it takes two lost guinea pigs and one cold, frosty, nighttime adventure to save Truffle's bacon...Brilliant story-telling that will make you laugh and cry, this is James Herriot for a new generation (and their parents!).
Helen Peters grew up on an old-fashioned farm in Sussex, surrounded by family, animals and mud. She spent most of her childhood reading stories and putting on plays in a tumbledown shed that she and her friends turned into a theatre. After university, she became an English and Drama teacher. Her first book, The Secret Hen House Theatre, was published in 2012, and its sequel, The Farm Beneath the Water, in 2015. Helen lives with her husband and children in East Sussex.
