Asheville author releases children’s book

Press release from publicist:

Asheville Author Creates a Magical World for

Children in New Book

A Magical Day in Grandpa’s Garden


Once again, these ancient mountains have inspired another imaginative story about our natural world, this time, one perfect for reading with children. The idea for the book came to author Miss Felicity Meadowsweet one day while on a picnic with her children and their friends. “They were all running around when one said, “Look, I’m flying!”, and I had a vision of all the kids as fairies” she says, “And it all unfolded from there.”

The book tells an enchanting story of a young brother and sister who go to the country to visit their Grandparents. While in the flower garden, they meet a fairy who whisks them away to a gathering where the children encounter other fairies. Miss Felicity says, “I never intended to write children’s books, but after the fairy vision I just had to write it down.” The story also highlights themes about respect for nature, keeping your word, and throws in some fairy magic for good measure.

Many children grow up in cities and urban centers, without the benefit of learning how to garden or being able to explore nature. “I believe everyone should have a garden, even if it’s in pots on a balcony”, Miss Meadowsweet shares, “I hope the children and their parents will be inspired to take care of the earth, even if it is just their small portion.”

She chuckles and says, “I once saw a bumper sticker that said, Children grow best outside. I heartily agree. Children need fresh air and sunshine, grass to run around on, and streams and forests to investigate.”

Two other books are planned in the author’s Magical Garden Book Series. “Some of the characters will appear again in the next book”, she writes, “the children, fairies and grandparents will continue their adventures, along with a few new characters.”
