‘The Rivoli Wigwam’ by Alicia Sunday. An exciting adventure story for 7-9 year olds available today on Amazon!
When I came to Portugal I had a dream that I would write sitting lazily by a pool with a view of a mountain, cooking outdoors, sunshine etc. etc. Sitting lazily by a pool? With a family to look after and the school run and….two houses to renovate…are you kidding?
But – finally, finally out of that chaos my children’s book has been published.
It’s a great thing having children curled up with a book, lost in an adventure, learning new words, inspiring the imagination, challenging their reading skills, their perspective of the world. Being quiet. My children’s stockings are always at least a quarter full of books. Not all from me, Santa delivers some of them.
Four kids embark on an extraordinary adventure when they are drawn into the world of Rivoli after a strange princess appears in their garden. Pleading with them to save her planet, now on the brink of destruction and with time running out, she gives them each a peculiar task to complete. On the point of despair they turn to the Uclids for help, weird and beautiful creatures that live by the river. Are they too late to save the planet and it’s gentle ruler, King Alphadi? If they fail will Earth be destroyed too? An exciting read for 7-9 year olds with black and white illustrations.
