My friend, Sue Elvis, has a new children’s book out and it’s called “The Angels of Abbey Creek.”
In Australia, where Christmas is in summer and dads like to play cricket, is a small town. Not far from this town, along a narrow, winding road, is the village of Abbey Creek. And on the edge of this village, nestled among the shady gum trees, is a sprawling brick house. This is the home of the Angel family: Mum, Dad, Edward, Kate, Joe, Celeste, Lizzie and Annie.
And this is the story of their very adventurous year!
It’s a year full of happy days and magic moments, of camping in the bush and perfect beach holidays, of feast days and birthdays and even a First Holy Communion. The year has exciting days and disastrous moments, with racing bushfires, naughty birds and scurrying mice. And it’s full of surprises. The biggest surprise of all happens on Christmas Day!
The Angels of Abbey Creek contains 22 individual adventurous stories which fit together to tell the tale of one exciting year!
This book is now available for purchase from Lulu and will soon be available from Amazon.
