On Tuesday 23rd February’s Little Red Live show, with Megan and Shemiza, we introduced our competition!
We have been thankfully gifted two books by Author, Lucy Rix!
We have one copy of “My Mum is so Embarrassing” and one copy of “The Traveller and the Donkey” to give away to one of our listeners!
We asked Lucy Rix to explain to us what her books were about:
“My Mum is so Embarrassing” was inspired by my daughter Maria’s reactions to my lively Zoom interactions with my Mum and 5 sisters. It is a short story regaling the reader with examples of the various ways that Maria is embarrassed by her Mum (all true!) and the rest of the book comprises of puzzles, a recipe and members of the family giving advice on how to achieve goals, friendship, health and safety, sleep hygiene and mental well-being. Written and illustrated in a fun way. Written for children, though adults will also enjoy and learn from it too. The book was self published on Amazon KDP and is priced at £6.00.
‘The Traveller and the Donkey’ came from an inner dialogue in my mind as I wrestled with the negative voice in my head. It started with a series of images that made me giggle and the story grew. I didn’t even know what was coming or how the story would end. The result is a parable that explores the themes of identity and the deep inner longing we all share to go ‘home’, however we define that. Beautiful illustrations throughout. Also available on Amazon for £5. More aimed for adults, though children would enjoy the story and pictures too.
