Burnham-On-Sea author to hold book-signing session today

A Burnham-On-Sea author is to hold a book-signing session today (Saturday) for her collection of beach-themed children's stories.

Ann Poole, from South Street in Burnham, first began writing the book over 20 years ago when her grandson Jack was a young boy - her book, called Beach Friends, was published earlier this year.

The book features five creatures that youngsters could spot on a trip to the beach. It was inspired by visits that Ann took to Burnham-On-Sea beach with young jack when he was a boy.

"It's a collection of fun, short stories aimed at 3 to 7 year olds. The book tells of beach friends such as Starfish Seahorse and Crab who meet and have adventures on the beach," she says.

She is holding a book signing session today at Burnham-On-Sea Swim and Sports Academy from 9.30am - 12pm.

The book is also on sale at Burnham-On-Sea's GW Hurley's in the High Street. Published by New Generation, the book has also been distributed to several publishing outlets such as Amazon here. The hardback is priced £14.99, the paperback is £8.99 and the Kindle edition is £4.99.
