Princess Swashbuckle launches August 8th!

Adventurer and ship's Captain, Princess Swashbuckle, gathers a loyal crew for surprising missions on the high seas in author Hollie Hughes cleverly crafted story.
I loved creating the characters in this book - and there are plenty! - even though we begin with froggy characters we soon leave the palace in Frogland to encounter all sorts of animals in far off places. Offering skills and friendship on their journey, Princess Swashbuckle steers her crew on a new course. This is no frilly princess stuck in a tower waiting to be married off to any ol' frog prince. She has a vision....!

Free books for eager readers

I'm supporting Bookgiving Day 

Every year 1000's of books are donated on bookgivingday to international children's charities, refugee sites, school libraries, nurseries and community halls. 
It is a simple and wonderful gift that can brighten any space and give delight to any child. In past years I've given to doctors/dentist waiting rooms, nurseries and cafes.
I have more books to give away this year! If you know of a library, school or cause please get in touch. I have lovely picture books, novelty and early readers in english. ALSO hardback foreign editions I would gladly pass on in most european languages!
Please contact me by 14th February 2018 via the blog comments or tweet me @debbieallwright for worthy recipients.
Thank you.
