Welcome to Silver Street Farm Paperback
Illustrated by Katharine McEwen
Part of the Silver Street Farm series
Some farms are up in the hills ...or down long, winding lanes ...but Silver Street Farm is different - it's right in the middle of a town! Meera, Gemma and Karl have always dreamed of a farm of their own, and when Meera discovers an abandoned railway station called Silver Street it seems like their dream might one day come true.
But events happen quicker than the children could ever have expected - some eggs they thought were off surprisingly hatch into fluffy ducklings, some poodles bought on the internet turn out to be lambs, and soon Silver Street Farm is up and running.
The news of a city farm spreads like wildfire and the council try to shut it down - but the good citizens of Lonchester are determined to save it, and, thanks to a friendly policeman and some singing supporters, Silver Street Farm survives - with several additions including a dog that herds chickens and some sweet but stubborn goats.
The first in a charming series of fun-filled animal adventures on Silver Street Farm.

Review by RefPenny
Auntie Nat had dreamed of having two white poodles but when she opened the box she bought from a suspicious-looking character, she discovered the two white woolly animals inside were lambs, not poodles. However, Gemma, Meera and Karl had dreamed of having a farm and the lambs were just what they needed once Meera discovered the abandoned railway station that would be a perfect place for their city farm. All they needed to do was to persuade the council . . .This is a great read for children aged 6 and up. It has short chapters, an exciting story and delightful illustrations. Welcome to Silverstream Farm is the first in a new series that is ideal for children to move onto after first chapter books and would also be good as a read-aloud
