Written by Bob Mole, 'Jeremy, the City Slicker' follows a scarecrow who gets involved in local life having moved to a village.

As an outsider his contributions are not well-received but, as the tale progresses, we meet a host of amusing characters in a tale of petty crime and competition to win the Scarecrow Trail trophy.

Proceeds from the book, illustrated by Peter Wilks, will go to Sole Bay Care Fund, which provides short-term emergency care for people in their own homes.

'It's a way of expressing my humour to a wider audience,' said Mr Mole, who is working on two sequels.
