-- Christine Wright raised 8 children, along with the various pets that come with children, not just cats and dogs, or even chickens and ducks, but grass snakes, badgers and various other beasts. She chronicled the family life, not in a diary but as a book with her own illustrations.
Her children took the book to MyVoice publishing, and we agreed to publish it, for Christine writes very well and brings to life a gloriously funny family going through all the trials and tribulations of life. Sometimes dysfunctional, sometimes normal, always with something you can relate to in your own life!
"The problem is, you see, if you don't write things down, you forget them.'' So says Christine. And so the tale begins. From pram parachuting to badgers in the boot. From hairy caterpillars peeping out of lips to picnics in the fields. From gasping, breathless bulldogs to grass snakes in the bathtub. Christine Wright is the staunch housewife and mother of one husband and eight children. With a dash of sunny friendships, a sprinkle of shocked visitors, a splodge of culinary creations and a healthy dose of laughter, "Throw Me An Apple!'' is her heart-warming and honest tale of the often hilarious and occasionally perilous upbringing of her eight children.
Throw Me An Apple is available from Amazon and other book stores for £7.99. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Throw-Me-Apple-Christine-Wright/d...
