I’d like to share some other book suggestions that I think you’ll enjoy

A detailed dictionary packed with information but written in an accessible, user friendly style.

Elvena and the wolf
Megan Wain Smith
An excellent page turning, time travelling adventure story for children age 9 and over. Well written and entertaining. At £7.00 +p&p it would make a great stocking filler for Christmas. Author is Norfolk born Megan Wain Smith and 25% of proceeds go to Priscilla Bacon Lodge Hospice in Norwich.

Whispers on the Wind
John A.W. Strachan
A Shetlander’s collection of stories and poems about the islands he loves and remembers well. I love the cover, the youth, vigour and fooling around could be today, but the man on the left is John’s father and to the right his uncle.
