Launch at White Horse Bookshop as local children’s author Debi Evans publishes two new books

Author Debi Evans with Rolo and her two new booksAuthor Debi Evans with Rolo and her two new booksLocal children’s author, Debi Evans and Rolo, her time travelling dog, are back in Book 5 of The Secret Adventures of Rolo – Phoenix and the Dragonling which will be launched, along with a colouring and activity book aimed at younger children at The White Horse Bookshop on Saturday (18 January) between 11am and 1pm..

 

Cover of 'The Secret Adventures of Rolo – Phoenix and the Dragonling'Cover of 'The Secret Adventures of Rolo – Phoenix and the Dragonling'Phoenix and the Dragonling, aimed at 7 to 12 year olds was inspired by an unusual tree in the Savernake Forest.  It takes Rolo back in time to Hadrian’s Wall, the Titanic, a blacksmith’s forge and a soap factory.  He meets Florence Nightingale, Romans, the first emperor of China and he helps to rescue a royal corgi.

Debi's colouring and activity book, aimed at younger children aged 3 to 6 contains local scenes such as Silbury Hill but with the added attraction of unicorns!

Both Debi and Rolo will be in The White Horse Bookshop on Saturday January 18 from 11 am to 1pm.  Debi will be signing copies of both books.

Debi has been writing the Rolo books for seven years.  Each book can be read as a stand alone or as a follow on from Rolo’s other adventures.

 “They are,” Debi told marlborough.news, “designed to be educational and to link literacy with the history the children are studying at school.  I try to pick out the exciting bits of history to inspire the children.”

Debi runs free workshops in schools. “I always ask the children where they want Rolo to go next and they always say the Titanic and Florence Nightingale.  So that’s where he goes in my new book. He travels on the rescue boat the Carpathia to pick up survivors of the Titanic.”

“I aim to empower young minds.  I enjoy the research and weaving the fantasy.  It’s great to go into schools, weave a bit of magic and inspire children to write their own stories.”

As well as workshops in schools Debi gives talks to a range of adult groups.

There are already plans for a Book 6 where Rolo will be discovering how the internet came about.
