Acclaimed children’s author Emma Carroll joins us to discuss stories and storytelling and introduce her two latest novels In Darking Wood and The Snow Sister.
In Darking Wood is Emma’s beautifully written third book tells the story of a young girl called Nell, who is sent to stay at her grandmother’s house where she discovers an enchanting wood at the end of the garden. This wood, it turns out, is full of mystery, magic and secrets which captivate Nell and changes her trip entirely. (Aimed at ages 8-12)
The Snow Sister is Emma’s most recent book and it is perfect for early readers, aged 6+. The Snow Sister is wonderfully festive and tells the story of Pearl, who is on a mission to create the perfect Christmas day and the perfect Christmas pudding! Unfortunately she runs into trouble on her journey and leaves the reader wondering if she will make it home in time for Christmas.
We’ll be gathering in the children’s room so places are limited, do book early to avoid disappointment!
