I am delighted to say that Huwie the Apple Tree is here and I am busy sending out books to all you wonderful people who are buying them. It is beautifully printed by KPS Colour Print Knock Mayo Ireland and this makes the book fully Guaranteed Irish.  ‘Huwie’ the Apple Tree  is a true story of a little boy called Huw, who was eating an apple one day when a seed dropped out.   Huw decided to sow the apple seed.   It grew to be a beautiful apple tree.  Huw called it ‘Huwie’ the nicest name of all.   This little picture takes the children of the modern world back to nature.  It is filled with many stunning watercolour illustrations by Dolores and it is both educational and a treat!  You will find it in my shop.

Here are a few wonderful reviews for it:

Huwie the Apple Tree is a beautiful  little book.  The story of the apple seed growing to its full potential is simply written and creatively illustrated.  Its match stick images add charm and give it a unique personality.  Marian Corbett N.T.B.Sc Psychotherapy & Owner/Facilitator of Precious Angels Preschool Mullingar.

“A lyrical, rhyming story, with vibrant, lively illustrations, Huwie the Apple Tree perfectly captures the fascination, delight and child-like wonder to be found in nature and watching things grow.  A completely joyous picturebook!” Mary Esther Judy/Fallen Stars Stories
