The Fierce and Gentle Wolf

By Jennifer T. Doherty & Gerald Goldin.

Illustrations by Cara Lockhart Smith

 

The Fierce and Gentle Wolf

In a magical Scottish forest, Margaret sees the Wolf. But no one believes her, until...

This full-colour picture book tells of a young girl's love for the forest and its creatures, and the power she finds there. It is a remarkable sequel to the mouse of Gold, which was created by Jennifer T. Doherty, Gerald Goldin and Cara Lockhart Smith for Serafina Press in 2006. Though a completely new story, it features the dormouse and the silver ring from the earlier tale.

Cara Lockhart Smith's gentle, lively and detailed illustration of the natural world brings the story to life for very young children, while readers up to about 8 yrs old will enjoy the richly-woven text.

Jennifer T. Doherty is the author of several children's books, including The Treasure at North Berwick.
Gerald Goldin is an award-winning physicist.
Cara Lockhart Smith is an acclaimed children's writer and illustrator.

Based in Eyemouth, at the Smokehouse Gallery, Serafina Press aims to publish art-driven children's books. These will have a local flavour, with stories to appeal to children anywhere.

The Sea Dancer At St. Abbs
St Abbs Stars in New Book from Serafina Press

The latest children's picture book from Eyemouth-based publishing company, Serafina Press, has St Abbs as its colourful setting.

The Sea Dancer at St Abbs tells the story of Molly, on holiday in the village, but bored and lonely, until she casts a spell. A sea-creature - half girl and half seahorse - arrives to show her the hidden treasures round St Abbs.

"I wanted to do a book that really celebrated the village and this part of the coast," says Jennifer T. Doherty, the author. "Serafina Press now sells children's books from the Borders all round Scotland, and it's lovely to feature St Abbs, to let people know what's here. But, more importantly, the area just inspired the story, and it's great to let local children read about their own part of the world."

The book has been illustrated by Sophie Elm, who graduated from Edinburgh College of Art last year. She was a finalist in the prestigious Penguin Design Awards, and Jennifer Doherty picked up her work from her degree show display, in keeping with Serafina Press's strategy to work with young illustrators on some titles. Sophie spent time taking very detailed photographs of the area, so that the setting for the story would be accurate, and familiar to local people.

The Sea Dancer at St Abbs launches at The Smokehouse Gallery on May 16th, from 9.30am - 5.30pm. Sophie and Jennifer will be signing and dedicating between 10.30 and 4pm, and there will be refreshments and lucky dip all day.
