Good afternoon to one and all. We are very excited to announce that local children’s authors Jane and Adam Garethson will be signing copies of their latest novel tomorrow. Their new book, Playground Muggers, is the 23rd in the popular Tipsy & Tom series for the under-fives. The books follow the adventures of the drunken young brother and sister as they get to grips with growing up in a crime family in suburbia (allegedly based in Beckworth and drawing on both authors’ traumatic childhoods). I’m told that in this story the sozzled tots learn how to raise money, with menaces, at their new infant school. No doubt with hilarious consequences. It’s sure to be a thrilling page turner for young and old readers, so see you tomorrow afternoon. Nita Glamorgan. Manageress. Iceystones Bookshop.
