Faith's Avatar It's a mystery - like Mystery Monday - but on a Thursday and words not pictures!Laughing

I will tell you tomorrow if no-one knows.

Fennie might be able to solve it.

Re:
Fennie's Avatar No, wait a minute, wasn't Wesley the owl and Alex the dog and Chicken the cat - the other two were household pets anyway. The Matthew Rice calendar this year has a January page all about owls. (He's married to Emma Bridgewater - I think).

Re:
Faith's Avatar Fennie is near right - yes Wesley is the owl. Alex is the parrot in the book I read in 2013 - Alex & Me by Irene M. Pepperberg (very intelligent talking parrot) and Chicken is the .....can't remember crow, rook or something - in the book Corvus by Esther Woolfson that I think you recommended Fennie. Then I found a beautiful clean copy of a book with a sweet owl on it at the jumble sale last week - Wesley, the story of a Remarkable Owl - by Stacey O'Brien - and I highly recommend it to everyone. If you like owls, or birds and people then you can't fail to be fascinated. I cried when I read about Alex's death, but Wesley will touch you deeper than that. Put it on your reading list!

Re:
Fennie's Avatar Of course. Yes I remember Corvus and Chicken. I didn't connect the two. Memory not what it was, sadly.

But well done Faith for the puzzle.

Re:
Inthemud's Avatar Yes, I've read Wesley the remarkable Owl, wonderful story.
Weirdly if you google Alex, Wesley and Chicken you get a story about Alex Blood who found gravestones from church in Wesley in her chicken coop!!
