The New Adventures of Mr Toad Launch with Tom Moorhouse and Holly Swain
Tue 7 March 2017, 19:00 – 21:00 GMT
Come and join author Tom Moorhouse and illustrator Holly Swain for the launch party for their new children’s book 'The New Adventures of Mr Toad'. Have a glass of wine, hear Tom and Holly talk about the creation of the book, and buy your very own signed copy.
Inspired by the cherished classic Wind in the Willows, this is the first book in a new series that follows loveable rogue Mr Toad and a cast of brand new characters created by Tom, all beautifully brought to life by Holly’s illustrations.
Teejay, Mo, and Ratty really shouldn't be exploring the overgrown grounds of Toad Hall - but that's never stopped them before. This time, though, they fall into a tunnel. Undaunted by tales that the Hall is haunted, they find something… someone… in the ice house. It's none other than Mr Toad, and he's been there for a hundred years... Defrosted and dangerous, Mr Toad sets out on a mission to rescue Toad Hall from the hands of the sinister stoats and weasels.
This is a free event and is open to all ages.
