Introducing Angela Fish, author and reader at the Llandeilo Christmas Book Fair Dec 09

Angela Fish will present her books at the Book Fair from 10:30 - 4pm in the Shire Hall.
At 2:15 pm Angela will read from her work at Eve's Toy Shop.
Come along and meet Ben, his best friend Jess, and Scoot the dog. Find out about their adventures with Lox, Guardian of the Spider Kingdom. Their first quest is to find the pieces of the Spider Gate which has been broken by the magpies, but they must do this before the leaves fall from the trees.

Meet Ben. Anturiaethau i blant am Ben a’i ffrindiau yn Nheyrnas y Corynnod

Their next challenge is to find three magic ingredients for the Spider Wizard to make a potion to cure the Spider Prince. Ben meets some scary creatures as he searches for the dragon’s breath fern. The final adventure takes Ben, Jess and Scoot to Spider Lake in the Dark Mountains where they meet a very special lady. Will she help them to find a new home for Lox and his friends? Maybe Ben’s wise gran knows the answers!
