Summary: Time has come for Hazel the rat to leave his mum and make it on his own in the big, wide world. Hapless Hazel must learn how to build a nest and find food. Hazel must also watch out for the DREADED GROAK, the most feared and loathsome creature in the woods. When Hazel suddenly finds himself face to face with the dreaded groak, he is forced to confront his fears. He finds that sometimes things aren’t quite as they seem and those special friendships can be found in unexpected places. The Dreaded Groak is a beautifully illustrated, rhyming picture book, suitable for children age 3-5 years or an early reader age 6+. It subtly introduces awareness of prejudice, discrimination (e.g. racism, disability or LGBT) and bullying and contains positive messages such as: • being aware of the effect of behaviour on others; • the importance of being kind; • facing up to and confronting one’s fears; • giving everyone a chance - those who don’t miss out; • never judging a book by its cover; • accepting and embracing other’s differences; • finding friendships in unexpected places. 


  1. Happiness is all i see now I never thought that I will be cured from HERPES virus again. I have been suffering from a deadly disease (HERPES) for the past 3 years now, I had spent a lot of money going from one places to another, from churches to churches, hospitals have been my home every day residence. Constant checks up have been my hobby not until this faithful day, I was searching through the internet, I saw a testimony on how DR agaba helped someone in curing his HERPES disease, quickly I copied his email which is just to give him a test I spoke to him, he asked me to do some certain things which I did, he told me that he is going to provide the herbal cure to me, which he did, then he asked me to go for medical checkup after some days after using the herbal cure, behold I was free from the deadly disease, he only asked me to post the testimony through the whole world, faithfully am doing it now, please brothers and sisters, he is great, I owe him in return. if you are having a similar problem just email him on : or WhatApp: +2349074536486
