If you’re looking for a lovely children’s book written about our fair duchy of Cornwall, look no further than author Lucy and her intrepid explorer, Marmalade the Mouse. If you order now, you’ll even get a free hand-stitched Marmalade himself!
Marmalade Mouse has also explored London, Stratford-on-Avon, and Devon. In the Cornish adventure, Sybil the Seagull (from Penzance) takes Marmalade on a zoom-over Cornwall where the little mouse learns all about the history of the Cornish. The book is full of stories and tales which will thrill young children and not only help them with their reading, but also help them learn a little bit about Cornwall.

The hardback, watercolour illustrated Marmalade the Mouse books are available online at www.lucymagicmaker.com/shop for £14.50 and are both signed and dedicated as you require. You’ll also find them at The Duchy of Cornwall Nursery in Lostwithiel.
What a fabulous gift for children, whether Cornwall is their home or a fabulous holiday destination – and a great way of sharing the love for all things Kernow!
