I enjoyed the bantering between the two huntsmen, Giles and Piers as they decide which bird to take back to the Queen. The writer injects humour in the story, particularly in the description of the various birds and I smiled at the reaction of the blue tit and squirrel; ''A small blue tit that had been watching them from its perch on a low-hanging branch didn't wait around to hear the answer, and a nearby red squirrel lobbed an acorn at the huntsmen in angry protest".
The scene where Giles and Piers present the owl and the turkey to the Queen is highly entertaining – and the ending is brilliant.
