Orange retiree Alan Robinson, who has connections to Parkes, has now released the third and fourth books of his Grandpa's Farm children's series.

The books - Grandpa's Farm: An Autumn Day and A Winter's Day - have arrived in Parkes and are available at Parkes News and Gifts in Clarinda Street and the Parkes Visitors Centre.

Mr Robinson shared his story on theseries in November, when his first two books A Spring Day and A Summer's Day were available in town.

The author-illustrator has remained on track and aimed to release his last two books early this year, which complete the series.

"The 'Autumn' book is a little different to the others in that in part it seeks to deal with death. A difficult issue especially for children," Mr Robinson said.

All four books deal with the different seasons on the farm and the various stages of farming and rural life they impact.

The stories were heavily inspired by both Mr Robinson's own childhood on the family farm near Young and that of his sons'.

Mr Robinson's wife Sharyn comes from Parkes.
