I have just released a brand new collection...

Gurnard's Book of Delights

Gurnard's Book of Delights is a collection of stories written by children aged between four and ten years of age for a Primary School literary competition. They had to write a story involving an element of time travel... and they certainly did that.

It features three bonus stories by authors, Vanessa Wester and S.P. Moss, who judged the entries.

S.P. Moss commented:

"I've had so much fun reading your wild and wonderful stories. There were stories that made me giggle, stories that made me gasp and stories that amazed me with the places they took me to. I travelled in time back to the war, the Victorian times and even further - to the Aztecs, the ancient Greeks and ancient Egyptians with your stories. The time travel mechanisms were most ingenious - from boffin-like time-travel machines to everyday objects like a TV and a toy train. Not to mention a hat and some rather fabby pink boots - and even magic guinea pigs! Thanks to all of you who took part and keep on writing..."

All funds raised from sales of this book will go to Gurnard Primary School.

Last week, I released another collection for children. All proceeds raised will go to the NSPCC, a children's charity in the UK.

Please take a look and perhaps use to introduce your children to English stories.

Best regards

Reading is Magic is a showcase for a range of authors of children’s stories.

Lose yourself in a world were colour starts to vanish, a little girl’s imagination runs wild, a cloth that considers itself ugly finds beauty, a cloud discovers magic, children thwart the witch, a teacher chats with school children, a mango seller finds and loses her fortune, humanity remembers the importance of birdsong, a mysterious neighbour disappears, and a knight arrives from the past…

All in all, a wonderful collection to read at your leisure whilst enjoying school holidays, waiting for a friend or unwinding after a busy day.

Dip into our world of children's stories…

Hi everyone
I'd like to mention my new book The Sea Sprites of Winsome Bluff ; Age 9, 10, 11
If your children like fairytales try this modern one

When single parent Faye Jardine, inherits a run-down Manor House in a small coastal village, she sees it as a chance to start life away from helpful but interfering grandparents, Harriet and Ralph Jardine and decides to open a guest house.
But when she and her two children arrive in Winsome Bluff, Faye soon realises that life there isn’t what she expected.
Her son is being as awkward as he can and her daughter starts to talk to little imaginary people she calls Sea Sprites. Faye finds life difficult, coping with the hard work of getting the guest house ready to open and looking after two troubled children.
Then fate lends a hand.
When the children’s grandfather becomes ill, Faye is talked into letting Ralph and Harriet come and stay at Winsome Bluff, and Faye realises that the very person that she had fought with for so many years, could end up being her best friend.
A story about friendship, forgiveness and hope.

Darryl Hughes meint:
Hi guys. My name is Darryl Hughes. I'm a writer from NYC and I'd like to tell you about my latest work the "Chevalier: The Queen's Mouseketeer" series of fairy tale fantasy adventures for kids. First a little bit about the Chevalier series which is best described as "the Princess Bride meets the Lord of The Rings in a Disney/Pixar film written in Dr. Seuss rhyme starring a mouse":

CHEVALIER THE QUEEN'S MOUSEKETEER: THE HITHER AND YON
Created/written by Darryl Hughes
Artwork by Monique MacNaughton
Publisher: Brand X Books
ISBN: 978-0-9903936-0-3
Pages: 38 pages
Recommended for 4 to 10

"Within the kingdom walls was a dreamer,
who's dreams carried him to lands far away.
Where wild imagined heroic flights,
and thrilling sword battles with dark knights,
were the aspirations of a blacksmith mouse named Chevalier..."

A potpourri of the literary influences and artistic styles that inspired it's creation, and based on the exciting romantic fairy tale fantasy adventure online comic for kids of the same name, "Chevalier The Queen's Mouseketeer: The Hither and Yon" is an illustrated book that blends elements of comicbook and storybook, fairy tale and fantasy adventure, that is rendered in stylized graphic illustrations and told in a lyrical prose for young readers. Here is the plot:

In the magical realm of The Hither and Yon the noble kingdoms of The Land Ever After and The Far, Far Away are on the verge of war. A sinister plot is in play. The young Princess Faere of the land of The Shire, betrothed to Prince Charming of the Land Ever After, has been mysteriously kidnapped. And all the evidence of the foul deed points to The Far, Far Away.

With his kingdom on the verge of war with Ever After, Chevalier the mouse (a blacksmith who yearns for adventure and fancies himself a dashing "mouseketeer") vows to find the missing Princess, bring her back in time to stop the war between the kingdoms--And fulfill his destiny.

And book two of the series "Chevalier The Queen's Mouseketeer: For Queen and Country" continues the exciting romantic fairy tale fantasy adventure tale of Chevalier the mouse and his desperate quest to save a kidnapped princess and stop a war between two noble kingdoms that began in "The Hither and Yon":

"CHEVALIER The Queen's Mouseketeer: The Hither and Yon" and "Chevalier The Queen's Mouseketeer: For Queen and Country", the first two books in a four book fairy tale fantasy adventure series for kids by writer/creator Darryl Hughes and artist Monique MacNaughton. It's a fabled fairy tale of enor-mouse proportions.

REVIEWS:

"This book is gorgeous. Set in the magical land of the Hither and Yon and it's equally magical neighbors, Monique MacNaughton's artwork nicely compliments Darryl Hughes' tale of a young mouse who yearns to be a hero and how he gets his start, despite his tiny stature. As becomes obvious by the end, this is but the beginning of a series. Chevalier is going to have all the opportunity for derring do he ever wanted, and maybe even more then he bargained for. I certainly intend to be along for the rest of his adventures." -- Kay Shapero, Ursa Major Awards

"It's polished artwork and timeless storytelling makes this a book that can be enjoyed by young and old readers alike." -- The Drunk Duck Awards 2013

"Beautiful art. I really envy it's wonderful narration. Definitely appeals to all ages." -- The Drunk Duck Awards 2014

"The pictures are adorable...The storyline, rhyming, and pictures are fantastic." - Enigma Bookstore
