A Buffalope’s Tale – Book Review
By Angela Youngman Jan 10, 2011, 15:14 GMT
Anyone who has read any of Philip Caveney's Sebastian Darke tales cannot fail to be curious about Max, the Buffalope.
What was his story? How did he come to be involved with Sebastian? Why can he talk? How does he develop his wise-cracking role? Why does the Prince of Fools owe so much to Max?
These and many other questions are answered in this short story, which tells Max's life story in his own inimitable style.
Born into a herd of Buffalopes, Max from the very beginning shows those tendencies towards curiosity and fast talking that characterize him throughout his life. When tragedy strikes, he manages to keep going and find a niche all of his own.
At times amusing, at times sad; this is a story that cannot help but keep the reader engrossed. You just have to know what happens to Max. A pacy, fast moving story which will appeal to both boys and girls (and adults!).
