Austin Macauley Publishers Promote Book Culture by Donating Books
In October 2017 Austin Macauley Publishers donated a bundle of children’s books to the Offham Primary School who was looking to expand its library.
Natalie Page & Chris Rivers Nuttall’s children book Zak and Jen's Astronomical Adventures: The Petal Planet; Anthony P. Lashley and Rebecca Clare Lashley’s The Boy, The Father & The Sea; Mary Ann Wood’s The Pricklebottoms: A collection of short stories; and, Carole Smith and Suzanne Quest’s Dr Daphne and Nurse Moira Stories were contributed.
Natalie Page – a professional communication consultant, who likes to write stories for children and young adults - and Chris Rivers Nuttall – a professional rock drummer, who has a background of music and art – in their book Zak and Jen's Astronomical Adventures: The Petal Planet tell the story of a girl named Jen who wishes to view more than the earthly landscapes. Jen lives alone but one day a boy named Zak comes for a visit. Zak’s magic and an unusual umbrella helps to fulfil Jen’s aspirations and provide her with a valuable lesson.
The Boy, The Father & The Sea by Anthony P. Lashley and Rebecca Clare Lashley – both who previously taught in UK have now been working on illustrated short stories living in Andalucía, Spain – is a story of a boy’s love for his father. When the fisherman father of the young boy is consumed by the ocean, the boy goes on a mission to rescue his father fighting the dangers of the sea.
A compilation of four charming stories about a family of hedgehogs and their friends - The Pricklebottoms: A collection of short stories by Mary Ann Wood, is the perfect book for children. Mary Ann Wood works as an administrator and was previously in Queen Alexandria's Royal Army Nursing Corps. The book is an inspiration of her walks in the park with her children and grandchildren, collecting acorns, leaves and observing the wildlife.\
Carole Smith and Suzanne Quest, both grew up on the Wirral and work in a local school and for their book Dr Daphne and Nurse Moira Stories their mother was the inspiration. The book is full of unexpected mishaps that happen each day at the Puddington Vale, but Dr Daphne and Nurse Moira are always there for the help.
