On the final day of our book launch week we will be at John Lewis Reading in the Discovery Room on Level 2 for an interactive story time and book signing of the debut children's book "Peter Pixie Visits the Rescue Centre," aimed at 3-7 year olds, written by Michael J Woodward and illustrated by Alison Lingley.
Peter Pixie lives in a toadstool in the middle of a deep, dark forest. Like all young Pixies he has to go to school. He travels there with his best friend Jonathan in an acorn train to the big oak tree in the middle of the forest. Today is an exciting day because his class is visiting the Rescue Centre.
Whilst there, an unexpected emergency happens when a human is detected on a mushroom hunt, and the Pixie children get to watch a real life rescue take place! Will the Pixie villagers escape to safety in time? And will the bad human get his comeuppance?
Come along to hear the book being read by Michael's daughter Ruth Allan, plus the opportunity to get your book signed by illustrator Alison Lingley. Receive a FREE book mark, sticker and interactive colouring-in sheets of some of the characters from the story when you buy the book, plus access to the secret Honeysuckle biscuit recipe if you subscribe to our newsletter!
