Gwyneth Gerloch and Malcolm Gerloch

Stevi is a special chicken in the Miller household, named by Terry Miller in honour of his friend Steve. Stevi loves Terry's extremely brave collie dog, Coll, with whom she sleeps every night. Together they overcome a sneaky thief, Jake Moody, in the middle of the night.

Here is a tale which tells of quiet, simple things like building a tree house and how Stevi learns about ants - who all have names, of course - as well as of dramatic events and big words like pteronophobe. Parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles will enjoy reading this story to their young and curious children.

ABOUT GWYNETH GERLOCH AND MALCOLM GERLOCH


Dr. Gerloch retired in 1999 from a career as academic and research scientist in the field of quantum chemistry in the University of Cambridge. He is an Emeritus Fellow of Trinity Hall. He and his wife, Gwyneth, have since lived in Canberra, Australia. During his first twenty years of blissful retired domesticity, Malcolm has enjoyed gardening, house renovation and above all, learning to cook in several cuisines. Gwyneth has relinquished the kitchen with mixed feelings. Prior to writing (mostly) children's books, Malcolm's greatest achievement has been the construction of a dual-manual harpsichord for his wife to play. That was a present to thank her for introducing him to the non-scientific literature of - mostly - the nineteenth and twentieth century European and twentieth century North American writers.
