Second book coming soon
Politicans in Guernsey are called Deputies. The Pouques were delighted to write a pantomime for the Deputies. They have assigned characters but haven’t yet written the story.
P’tite Jeanne and Joan the Wad cause chaos for the Robilliard family on their sailing holiday to the Scilly Isles. However, they save the day when the humans get into danger.
The pouques get up to all sorts of tricks during the school summer holidays. P’tite Jeanne also stows away in the Robilliard family car to explore the Eden project.
Read a complete version of the story retold by Donald R. Rawe, that the story teller told in the Eden project in the Pisky and the Pouque. The pisky who lost his laugh.

Although the Island pledged allegiance to Britain at the time of William the conqueror, the ancient Normandy French that the islanders spoke lasted until well into the 20th century. After the World War two evacuation, the language started to die.
