✍️ If you’re local this Sunday; why not pop over to the Mr Pinklenose book signing and story telling session with John at The Coppice on Holyhead Road, Bicton Heath, Shrewsbury, SY3 8DT between 2pm and 4pm? A fantastic way to end the summer holidays 🤩
John is kindly donating 50p from every book sold to support the work of Blind Veterans UK. Thanks very much John; and Mr Pinklenose! We wish you both every success 🙏💙
The first photo shows John sitting with copies of Mr Pinklenose stacked in front of him; holding a copy. The second photo shows an illustration of Mr Pinklenose holding out his hands, palms upwards, beside each shoulder with a crescent of stars cascading over his head from one palm to the other. The text above the illustration reads; ‘have you met the characters?’
The story of Mr Pinklenose began with my late Father who created this character and whose stories he told to my sister, my brother and I when we were young children. There were no pictures or drawings of this magical and endearing little man. There was no social media, no twitter no U-Tube, no cartoons or written stories just us children using our imaginations. Later as we had children, my Dad kept Mr Pinklenose alive by telling such stories to his Grandchildren – all of us using our imagination as to what he looked like not to mention the fairies he was responsible for! I have kept his legacy going by telling stories to my Grandchildren and when I had to take early retirement due to ill health I decided that I wanted to share these stories with everyone else – not least to give my children and grandchildren something tangible to remember me by. So I hope when the book is printed and sent out next week (- that those of you who have chosen to try the first Mr Pinklenose adventure will appreciate that this has been a journey of 54 years from first telling to colourful, picture story book. I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did making Mr Pinklenose come alive for both myself and my family – and if you are still with me remember this is just the start of the adventure!
‘The first Mr Pinklenose book is now being printed and once completed copies will be sent out to all those who have pre-ordered. For anyone else looking to order copies please follow the pre-order process below – thanks!’
Mr Pinklenose is a very magical character who stands only 6 inches high.
He has perhaps the most important job in the world as far as children are concerned.
He works all year round for Father Christmas. His job is to keep an eye on and keep a record of each and every child in the world in order to let Father Christmas know whether or not, over the year, children have been naughty or nice.
How he does this as well as many other magical adventures he has, such as helping the Easter Bunny deliver all the Easter eggs and finding the lost kitten in the dark woods – are described in a collection of colourful and entertaining books which will be available to buy very soon.
The books and other related media, are aimed at children from the ages of 2 – 7 or older if they have not lost their belief in magic and characters such as Father Christmas, The Easter Bunny, Jack Frost, the Spring Fairy and many more!
Remember – Mr Pinklenose is coming soon and he is NOT just for Christmas!
