Book Tour: Champagne and Lemonade by John Hickling



Champagne & Lemonade is a delightful collection of eclectic short stories, taking readers on a journey to different times and places, meeting a sparkling cast of well-drawn characters.

Nibble the fish is desperate to escape his boring old pond.
A new breed of super hero has been born and his name is Bob Cheesecake.
Dumpton Hospital’s staff have a somewhat unconventional approach to looking after their patients.
Robert Hood is on a mission to save modern England.
And just who is the vampire terrorising the neighbourhood from his home at 113A Greenstone Street?
From the quixotic to the poignant, John A. D. Hickling’s wild and whimsical tales fizz with fun and are sure to entertain almost everyone!

I read the delightful Harry and… The Pirates of Rock Bay, which is a middle grade short story about Harry’s piratical adventure aboard his ship, the Mum and Dad. While very short, it took me about 10 mins to read, it has enough time to tell its story perfectly. This would make a great bedtime story for any child that enjoys adventure and excitement.

“Who on earth is that, Mr Mcgruff?” asked Captain Greed.“Why that’s Captain Harry Sparr, the bravest pirate there is by far,” Mr Mcgruff said to the angry looking Captain Greed.
