Polly Arrives In Port Elizabeth

After touring the Eastern Cape last April, I was lucky enough to be visiting Port Elizabeth and met up with the owner of Fogarty’s Book Shop.

And guess what?

My books are now available at Fogarty’s Book Shop in Walmer Mall. So if you are looking for middle-grade books for your youngsters for the Christmas Holiday’s, why not pop in and take a look at my Polly’s Piralympics Series. Loads of fun, interactive pages to draw on and get involved with Polly and the crew.

Or for younger readers there are my colouring-in story books the Toucane Series, teaching about not throwing down rubbish, how a friend is a friend no matter their colour and stranger danger. 4-8 years.

Where does Polly go on Holiday?

Where does Polly go on Holiday? little libraries Lough Neagh

Well, earlier this year Polly took a break and visited foreign lands. So where did she go? She left South Africa and headed for her first stop – Ireland. Here she stayed with Jann’s family in Northern Ireland.

Look what Polly found on the banks of Lough Neagh. A Little Library – where you can borrow and return books or swap for one of your own. There is a lovely Irish folk tale of the forming of Lough Neagh.

‘The famous warrior Finn MacCool (Fionn Mac Cumhaill) caused the creation of Lough Neagh. Legend has it that Finn was chasing a Scottish giant across Ulster when he picked up a large piece of ground and hurled it at the giant. It overshot and fell into the Irish Sea forming the Isle of Man while the massive crater left behind became infilled with water and formed Lough Neagh.’   http://www.discoverloughneagh.com/folklore-legend



Going International

Wow, I can’t believe my book made it to the Algerian Book Fair – Thank You Claire-Rose for packing them last minute into your suitcase.

Yes, those are actually my books in the stands! Next time we must get them registered so we can take orders, but at least this time they were there and seen.

Someone, please pinch me ha, ha, ha.
