John S. Webb (Author of Apple Garden)
30+ books for an apple theme
After a fabulous year and a half of working on our apple story project the book is finally here! The story behind the story of Anna and the Apple Tree Miranda I saw Richard at an event at The Evesham Festival of Words, where my children, even my sceptical teenage son, sat completely enthralled for an hour without fortnite! So, I jumped at the chance of working with him. Being in nature can trigger imagination and creativity, inspire wonder but also just let kids slow down and think. In an age where modern life can be very stressful, for all ages, this story of hope, is more important than ever. As I travelled around the country and told the story of the rescued tree, the character of Anna and her story quickly developed. Then Miranda and I doing a final joint feedback session before we went to print.
