‘It’s the start of the school summer holidays and Fred and Lottie are looking forward to a promised trip to Disney World, but there is a problem. Their dad has suddenly been made redundant and their parents feel there is not enough money for extravagances, so instead, they are going to stay in a borrowed static caravan in Yardley Gobion – ‘where’s that?’ ask the children, and what will they find to do there?
Arriving there they are determined to make the most of the situation and set off to explore the area.
To their surprise their exploration takes them onto a canal boat ‘Mouse’ which leads them into a magical adventure where they are transported back in time, trying to solve riddles to take them to a hidden treasure’.
“Had a wonderful weekend with my grandchildren finishing off every night with tales of Mouse the canal boat . This is a great book to read aloud had lots of twists and turns and giggles my grandchildren loved it. I can see this becoming a firm favorite to be read again and again. We can’t wait for the next one.”
About Kitty Irvine
Kitty Irvine grew up in the north of England and married her husband in 1985 and in the early 1990’s they moved to a small Scottish island. They lived a very rural life. It took one and a half hours to get to the mainland by ferry. Their water supply came from a ‘wee burn’ and in the winter they collected wood to burn to keep warm. They learned many life skills and met some amazing people.
They were offered a position in private domestic service traveling around the world.
After 20 years they were lucky enough to take early retirement in 2015, that’s when the writing started!
