Welcome to a World of Adventure

Read a true story about Alfie the Cat, a touching story of kindness.
Our own Alfie the Cat soft toy is for your child to hold whilst you read them the story.

Meet a naughty but nice fearless mouse called Flynn, and cuddle his adorable soft toy character.

Learn about the history of Cromford Mill by following the adventures of a little duck called Arkwright.
You’ll find the cutest duck you’ve ever seen totally 
irresistible.  And you won’t be alone!

Milly, Molly & Maisy is another true story about three sisters, kittens adopted from an animal welfare shelter.
Maisy tells their story and has her own cuddly soft toy.

“Owl to the Rescue” is a delightful story about how Owl saves the woodland creatures.
And our Owl soft toy is a must!

Sue’s latest book, “Bobby Dog”, was launched at Calke Abbey,
a National Trust property near Derby, on 31 July, 2022.
And the soft toy, Bobby, comes with an adoption
certificate for its young owner!

Both are now available here.

These beautifully illustrated books by Derbyshire author Sue Wilkins are ideal bedtime stories or indeed anytime stories for children up to 7 or 8 years of age.
