Mystery at Misatale Manor – Book 1
Securely nestled, in the small village of Crocksley on Tyne stands a large impressive estate surrounding an imposing ancient stone house, known as Misatale Manor. The Lord of the Manor, Lord Thumblevink, is rather old and often known to be extremely difficult. His monocle constantly gets lost; he dribbles uncontrollably and sweats the most enormous puddles ever.
A mere staff of two tries to run the Manor very inefficiently;
Mrs Rotund, the huge flabby housekeeper/cook, with small beady eyes and cheeks like red apples, has a long skinny nose; this has been known to attract baby birds, which have mistaken it for their dinner. She does not do much of anything apart from chop food with gay abandon, and eat far too much.
Botsley, the gardener/groundsman, is an extremely smelly man with not only excessively bad body odour, but also a continual bad hair day.
Lord Thumblevink remains under the false impression he is young and handsome and thus a good prospect for any attractive vixen he chooses. Unfortunately his sights are firmly set on one Miss Frilly Morselton. Thus Lord Thumblevink must endure the annoying company of her rather pompous brother Major Morselton in the hope of one day winning her heart. However on hearing Frilly is betrothed, to none other than the rouge fox Captain Serbaleous Porthole; Lord Thumblevink knows drastic measures are called for.
Every good home boasts its very own resident rodent, and Misatale Manor is no exception. Tweed and Mousely reside happily within the walls, enjoying many adventures plus a rather hectic if not difficult lifestyle. But on the day Lord Thumblevink feels Tweed has gone too far by playing a very unkind and nasty trick on him, it leads to devastating and far-reaching consequences for all
Lord Thumblevink has always enjoyed his sport, and retribution is sweet, but when directed towards Tweed who losses his tail, a trophy for his Lordship, Tweed
realizes extreme measures are required on his part. The sudden appearance of a beautiful Moeloulee, a very sought after rodent in the village, presents Tweed with a difficult choice and an unexpected opportunity that could benefit almost everyone.
So Tweed with his usual ingenuity formulates a plan, strikes a deal with His Lordship and saves the day. His tail is returned, none the worse for wear and Mousely happily sews it back on.
Lord Thumblevink gets his vixen, impressing the Major by surrendering to him the most desirable rodent in the village.
Tweed and Mousely remain the resident rodents at the Manor and are again tolerated by His Lordship. Botsley gets promoted and a little something extra.
And as the sun sets over Crocksley on Tyne Tweed admires his tail as Mousely cuddles close. Peace and happiness again prevail as Tweed realizes with Mousely by his side all is perfect in his world
Foxes rule at Misatale Manor.
