"Hello dear visitor.
I am Horace your guide through these pages and I would like to tell you all about a very special man that I know.
I don't mean Mr. Oldcastle my owner.
No, I mean Val Biro the author and artist who brought Gumdrop and me to life.
Just in case you are a bit confused about us the picture on the right shows myself, Mr. Oldcastle and Gumdrop.
Val is very learned and a gifted artist and I would like to tell you about his life and work and to give you a glimpse of his prodigious talent. ( I don't really know what that big word means but Mr. Oldcastle tells me that it is the very best word to describe Val's work.)
I almost forgot to tell you about Cameron up in Scotland. As my paws don't type very well he is helping me to build these web pages.
While Cameron was building web pages about the late Nigel Tranter, 'Scotlands Storyteller' he saw that Val had designed over 30 book cover illustrations for Nigel's books.
Cameron wanted to know more about Val Biro so, after a phone call, Val sent Cameron a copy of our adventures in Scotland. That was the time we met the Loch Ness Monster.
The result of that phone call is this web site. So please scroll down and enjoy the pages all about Val and his work."
