Pouque Stories

The pouques stories involve the adventures of the naughty Guernsey fairy folk called pouques. They have shared many of their adventures with the two Robilliard children, Sammy and Jacob


Sammy and Jacob Robilliard

Sammy and Jacob live with their mother and father in a house on Rohais, not far from Waitrose. It is about 10 minutes walk down the hill into the main town, St Peter Port.

They attend a local Primary school and walk to school each morning together. Jacob is in Year 3 and Sammy is in Year 5.

They love living on Guernsey, so close to the beach, because they enjoy lots of outdoor adventures. Sammy is a real extrovert and a bit of a chatterbox. She is quite bossy with her younger brother.

Sammy and Jacob like to visit their great grandma Betty who was a small girl when the Nazis invaded in 1940. Betty lived with her grandparents during the occupation.
