Autor Francesca Bell
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 30 sep 2021
"I've finally got a bedroom to myself," called out Hannah, busily putting toys and books neatly on a shelf.
"Me too," shouted her brother Jack excitedly from the room next door as he shoved things under the bed that he couldn't find a home for.
A new house at last. What could possibly go wrong?
But all is not as it seems as earlier that day .......
"Mum," said Poppy, "I've got to make a house out of a shoebox for homework and it has to be back in on Monday."
"No," Sophie corrected her, "the house has to be in the shoebox, I think."
"Well, I thought Mrs Hayes actually said a garden anyway," retorted Poppy, "not a house."
"I know what," said mum trying to quickly diffuse the situation and keep the peace, "we'll do both - a house and a garden in a shoebox, how about that?"
And so it was that, due to Poppy Wilson's daydreaming, her homework assignment quite literally took on a life of it's own.
With a little bit of magic, she and her two sisters are led into a tiny world full of mysteries and mishaps.

Notă biografică

Francesca Bell had a long-held dream to write books. The Twins from Corncockle Bottom is the fulfilment of this dream. It was inspired by the vivid imaginations of not only her three granddaughters but the pupils at the local school where, as a volunteer, she listened to young children not only while they read but also as they regaled her with tall tales and snippets of stories from their own lives.
When not writing she might be found meandering by the rivers and canals near her home in Hebden Bridge with her beloved cocker spaniel, Snoopy.
In her life before becoming an author Francesca owned and ran a busy restaurant and was then the executive assistant to the CEO of a large NHS Trust.
Her next book, continuing the adventures of the twins, will be out shortly.
