The Tattoo Toorie is the new book from local author Alison Page, and second in the Corrie’s Capers series.
It follows Corrie on another exciting adventure, this time to Edinburgh Castle. Corrie receives an invitation and a special request from the Queen to join the royal family at the Castle for the Festival Tattoo. But there is one problem. Can Corrie overcome her fear of fireworks? And so we join the wee Westie on a journey, where she enlists the help of her Papa, some friendly knitters, and some freshly baked woofibles to help her along the way! To find out how Corrie gets on you can visit Alison for her official launch in the Glenisle Hotel, in Lamlash, on 19th July from 5 – 6.30pm. Alison will be reading the book and signing copies.
If you can’t wait till then, the book is already available to purchase in several shops in Arran, see here for stockists.
After the success of The Westie Fest, Alison said, “The Tattoo Toorie was such fun to write! Even at first draft stage, Judith Paskin, my lovely editor, gave me such encouragement. Kirsty enjoyed illustrating the story so it’s been a super project from the start. I do hope folks enjoy reading it. Already a number of people have come back to me saying it makes them laugh out loud which really makes my day!”
You can also see Alison over the summer at various events and signings. She will be at:
The Book & Card Centre, Brodick – 27th July
Arran Heritage Museum Children’s Event – 28th July
Brodick Highland Games -10th August
Mary’s Meals Coffee Morning, Lamlash Church – 21st August
Alison is the Arran Community Ambassador for Mary’s Meals. At the outset she decided that once costs were covered for the books any money would be split between Mary’s Meals and funding the next book in the Corrie’s Capers series. She is delighted her book project is already helping to feed starving children with £2000 donated since publishing The Westie Fest in July 2018.
Amazing work Alison, well done!
