Algarve author Karl Bradshaw-White will have his debut children’s book published this month.
‘The Adventures of Flossy’ is a charming, lightly humorous story of a naïve but rather vain dragonfly called Flossy! Flossy the dragonfly spends the day flying about, saying hello to lots of different animals, including the very loud bullfrog Morris, the beautiful but ever-so-busy kingfisher, some not very bright sheep and Horace the pig. What unpleasant eating habits they have!
Flossy flies so far from home she loses her way; on her perilous way home she meets Spartan the eagle and a group of fireflies, both of whom prove particularly helpful. Later she will encounter a pair of rather irritable magpies. During her adventures she learns many things, in particular that she should not steal from others!
‘The Adventures of Flossy’ is an ideal bedtime story, or adventure series for children to follow. There are six colourful illustrations of the characters in the book.
Karl Bradshaw-White has been an antiques and fine arts dealer and furniture restorer for 30 years. He is self-taught. He entered the world of miniature making in the late 1990s, becoming one of the only artists in the world to specialise in Pietra Dura, a 17th-century art working in marble and semi-precious stones. His work is displayed in museums around the world.
Karl is now semi-retired and lives with his partner of 35 years. He is the author of the bestselling ‘Algarve Travel Guide: 54 Cities/Towns/Villages’.
