THE DOWNTON ABBEY RULES FOR HOUSEHOLD STAFF and OUR ZOO published today

With a general introduction for new members of staff from Carson the Butler, The Downton Abbey Rules for Household Staff by Carnival Productions tells you everything you need to know about working below stairs in the grand estate of Downton Abbey.

The household staff of Downton Abbey carry out their duties with effortless dignity, finesse and pride. Yet how do they know how exactly to lay the table, when to leave the room to give Lord and Lady Grantham their privacy, how to care for Lady Mary's furs and which uniform to wear when? This recently recovered and fascinating staff handbook answers all of these questions and more.

Our Zoo Downton Rules

When George Mottershead moved to the village of Upton-by-Chester in 1930 to realise his dream of opening a zoo without bars, his four-year-old daughter June had no idea how extraordinary her life would become. Soon her best friend was a chimpanzee called Mary, lion cubs and parrots were vying for her attention in the kitchen, and finding a bear tucked up in bed was no more unusual than talking to a tapir about granny's lemon curd. Now over 80 years since June first set foot in the echoing house, Chester Zoo has achieved worldwide renown.

Our Zoo by June Mottershead chronicles the heartbreak, the humour, the trials and triumphs, through World War Two and nightly bombing raids, and above all the characters, both human and animal, who shaped her childhood.
