A Ferret Named Phil

The debut children’s book by 22 year old South Australian writer William Reimer.


The story of a small ferret who overcomes a big bully without resorting to violence, told completely in rhyme.

Phil is the happiest of ferrets as he sits by the lake with Jane, until the mean Hugo the hawk ruins their picnic! Instead of feeling intimidated, Phil comes up with a cunning way to show the bully that he isn’t afraid to stand up to him.

For children between the ages of 3-7.

A Ferret Named Phil is inspiring and empowering children across the country, opening up discussion of bullying through a meaningful, heartfelt story – And I’m absolutely certain it will have the same positive effect on your children.

Hardback edition, 24 pages in length.

If you know a child that is being bullied then this the perfect gift.

What are people saying?

  • “A fantastic book is A Ferret Named Phil, it has many connotations and appeals to the imagination of all ages. I congratulate William Reimer for highlighting the need for our young to develop assertiveness skills to step up and stand up to bullies. This book is engaging, empowering and entertaining but most of all it encourages discussion about an issue affecting 1 in 5 and delivers many messages in various contexts. This should be in every Library and Pre/Primary School in the country.”
  • “Phil the Ferret is brave and determined. But he also knows the importance of relying on friends when it comes to overcoming any challenge. This is a wonderful story about how togetherness and care can make even the most vulnerable feel safe”
  • “Children of all ages will be able to relate to this story about Phil the Ferret overcoming the odds stacked against him and the gorgeous whimsical images add to the appeal”
  • “It’s my 3yr old daughter’s favourite book!! She asks me to read it to her twice before bed & once more in the morning. She knows it so well that she read it to her friends at daycare.”
  • “We got ours yesterday and it’s a big hit with out 4yr old! Read last night and requested for tonight’s bedtime story too! Adore the artwork aswell! Thanks William, Well done”
