You may have heard of the moderately successful children’s author – JK Rowling, but after many months squirreled away in his garden shed during lockdown, I am delighted to announce the launch of a new children’s book by the – soon to be famous local author – JK Melvin.(aka Grandad Melvyn)
This new work has been written as a children’s guide to gardening for 5 to 10 year olds, and takes us through the gardening year, as Grandad Mel shows his grandchildren which vegetables grow best in each season. Each chapter concludes with a simple recipe featuring the ingredients for that month for the children to try out at home. Throw in some charming illustrations by Mel’s grandchildren, Sophie and Oliver, and a smattering of Grandad’s old-fashioned sayings, and you have an enchanting guide that is sure to be a winner with grandchildren everywhere.
So if you are looking for a way to entertain your grandchildren next spring, then this book will make an ideal Christmas stocking filler. The first edition of Mel’s masterpiece is available exclusively at the village shop for just £10 – pop in and pick up your copy today!
