Blinky Bill Remembers Nutsy's Birthday

Blinky Bill Remembers Nutsy's Birthday (1996) Post 412.

 Blinky Bill Remembers Nutsy's Birthday is yet another of the stories I wrote in association with the Blinky Bill TV series in the 1990s. In this one, Blinky and friends celebrate Nutsy's birthday with circus performances, accidentally upsetting some real circus folk. One of the weirdest things about this book is that as of 16/02/18 there is apparently a copy for sale at £605.48

No. I don't believe it either.

The goal for 2017 was to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. 2017 is now behind us, but I ran out of year before running out of books, so the blog will continue for at least the next month or so.


  1. I know Shifty was in the episode, since he and his older siblings became good guys (Shifty and Daisy for the most part). I mean, it's great he's a member of the Blinky Bill Gang, but why isn't he in the book? And neither is Flap's clown counterpart Slap.

  2. Probably trimmed for length. These books came with a word count.


Thanks for reading
