Local author Sheila Tyrer Hughes will be launching her third book at the Old Fire Station Cafe this coming week.
Sheila will be at the cafe from 11:00am on Friday and Sunday mornings this week, when you will be able to purchase a signed copy of her third Children's book "The Mouse in the Teapot"
The Mouse in the teapot
Charlie Pringle has a dream.
He wants to own a mountain bike and go cycling in the hills. Not a very practical idea when you live in town, next to a canal and a derelict shoe factory.
Undeterred, Charlie sets out to earn some money.
At the same time, Charlie's class is studying the Second World War, looking for heroes.
Charlie's visit to old Mrs Tyrer and the accidental discovery of a mouse in the teapot trigger an adventure into the past and teach Charlie about the realities of war, about friendship, loyalty and the importance of family.
He also learns that heroes can be found in unexpected places and dreams really can come true.
Sheila Tyrer Hughes's passion for reading developed naturally into a love of writing.
After leaving school at seventeen, she worked as a trainee pathology lab technician before going to California in search of Adventure.
There, she took care of children and horses before returning to Wales and becoming an English teacher.
She loves mysteries, the countryside, ancient buildings, landscapes and losing herself in imaginary worlds.
She is a Mother and grandmother and lives in Cheshire.
The Mouse in the Teapot is her third book for children.
