18 Feb New: Children’s Book – The Adventures of Eugene.
The launch of this children’s book based on John’s novel ‘Eugene’ means younger readers can now enjoy the adventures of Eugene too.
Eugene was a butcher-boy. When he was only twelve years old he could make sausages and pies and cut up joints of meat. But, when he was eighteen, he was sent to Burma to drop rice from an aeroplane to villagers starving in the jungle. The Japanese soldiers were running scared.
Eugene fell in love with a beautiful Burmese girl named Chit but when he returned to England, she was not allowed to come with him. They were both very sad. Years later he married Dorothy and they opened only the second supermarket in England. Things started to go wrong.
There was an explosion down a coal mine, a terrible car crash and then Dorothy died: but how? Worse was to come. Two brothers disappeared without trace and then a farmer’s dog sniffed out a man’s arm buried in a field. The police came to see Eugene. Had he killed his brothers after a family argument?
” Fantastic. Great for young minds looking for a tale of adventure! Follow Eugene on his travels from humble beginnings as a butcher’s boy in rural Britain to the jungles of deepest darkest Burma. And when he returns see what you make of a life with mysterious car crashes and rumours of murder. Easy to read, loads to enjoy. And some cool pictures!”
