Simon Adepetun at the National Playday in Torkington Park
Simon Adepetun, author of 'The Bee Hive', will be at the National Playday in Torkington Park on Wednesday 2nd August. National Playday is an all inclusive play event with face painting, arts and crafts, sports and refreshments. Simon will be reading from his book and will also be available to answer any questions. The day is being run by the charity Action for Sick Children. Find out more about the charity here. Join Simon for an excellent day to support a wonderful cause. Eleven-year-old Daniel Jeremiah Chambers has parents Philip and Susan who love work and shopping and who just don't listen. Daniel is an only child ... no, he's lying ... he has a sister, Alice, who has a dolly fixation; Dan is sure she is an alien. So, Dan has a few problems, none insurmountable, until his friend, Benji, introduces him to the find of the century - a derelict bee hive which could become a den. Of course, such a simple thing is never so simple and when Dan finds a map well, all kinds of things just go horribly wrong. For example - Alice noses her nosey way in and two strange men suddenly turn up wanting what's theirs - and then there's the bank, too. 'The Beehive' by Simon Adepetun is a tight little sharp-witted bumble through a short period in Dan's young life. ‘What's a bumble?' - ‘Shut up, Alice!'
