The Sugar and Spice Collection by EK Books - Book Launch


The Sugar and Spice team, Anouska Jones, Penny Harrison, Susan Whelan and Gwynne Jones launched their 'The Sugar and Spice Collection' yesterday at Wallsend Library which was published by EK Books.

  

Firstly, Penny shared her story, Dance With Me by giving us a sneak peek into the storyline.
Anouska followed by introducing her book, Patch and Ruby.
Susan then gave us a hint about where missing socks go in The Great Sock Secret.
All three titles where illustrated by the very talented Gywnne Jones.

After a few thank yous from the girls, we got to dive into yummy orange and pink treats while the girls signed copies of their new books.



 







Gwynne had to sign three times faster than the rest!



While all this was happening, the kids could get creative completing glittery craft activities.


MacLean's Booksellers, Hamilton were there to help everyone 
get their hands on this stunningly colourful box set.


After some eating, drinking, crafting, signing and talking, 
Penny, Anouska and Susan snuggled in to read their stories. 

  

Gwynne roamed the room drawing special requests. My Lara asked for a 
garden full of bugs. Very Spring of her! I wonder where she got that idea from?

Congratulations lovely ladies! These stories are delightful. 
How lucky were we to have all of you together for this celebration.
