The author of 120 children’s books is coming to the Cayman Islands.
Rosemary Wells is the creator of, among other series, those bunnies Max and Ruby, who have their own television show on Nickelodeon Junior and also star in more than 40 books.
Young readers and their parents are invited to join Rosemary for a special Story and Craft Time extravaganza celebrating the release of her newest tale, Max & Ruby’s Treasure Hunt on Saturday, 24 November from 10.30 to 11.30am at Books & Books in Camana Bay.
In this latest adventure, Max and Ruby have planned a picnic with their friends Louise and Lily, but when it is rained out, Grandma has a great idea: an indoor treasure hunt. Grandma plants the clues, each one a Mother Goose or nursery rhyme that has to be completed to find the next clue, and the grand prize is a treasure chest containing gold-wrapped chocolate coins.
Young readers will find the Mother Goose characters and nursery rhymes are fun to recognise and complete
“Max and Ruby would love your blue green waters and warm trade winds,” Rosemary tells Weekender.
“They’d be looking forward to swimming, as I do! I am also looking forward to meeting the island children, their parents and sharing stories with them.” The author adds that the stories come to her “by themselves”.
“Most of them come about from real life experience. I love lying in bed at 5am and letting the day’s work come to me as it wishes to do.”
And come they do – join the author for a special reading, signing and a creative craft at Story and Craft Time this Saturday for free.
