The Lombardy Grotto

Publisher: Willow Bank

ISBN: 1-9061-6601-4

Up until now Jayne’s parents have been too busy and have not had enough money to take her and her two brothers away on holiday. At last a stay in a fantastic holiday camp with all sorts of exciting things to do is arranged. At the last minute, because of a sudden illness in the family, her Uncle Sparky has to take the place of her Mum and Dad.

Jayne finds her brothers Toby and Michael difficult enough. Uncle Sparky is even more of a pain.

Typically, Sparky’s battered old car breaks down. As they kill time writing for the breakdown service at a fascinating craft centre, strange things begin to happen and soon they are all sucked into another world. Jayne gradually finds there is more to Toby Michael and Sparky, and even to herself, than she could have ever imagined.

Hipp-O-Dee-Doo-Dah

Editor: Gill James

Publisher: Bridge House

ISBN: 978-1-907335-11-2

With a cover designed by Anthony Brown, a forword written by Michael Morpurgo and stories written by Blue Peter Award winners Alan Gibbons and Lauren St John, this collection of heart-warming stories is bound to please.

You’ll find all sorts of animals in this collection of stories – a hippo who longs for water, a chimp that proves to be tougher than a gorilla and a horse only two people can see.

There are some amazing people too – the young girl who looks after her mum, some young people who have magical powers they have to hide and a boy who finds a new way to remember his grandfather.

All of the stories are about how people are thoughtful with each other or with the animals in their care. And they’ll bring sunshine to a grey day.

£1 from the sale of each copy, plus a percentage of the author royalties, will be donated to Children’s Hospices UK.
