MICE IN THE CHURCHYARD

The Mice In The Churchyard is not the story of Copford Church.  It is the story of a local author, working with the residents of Copford, to help secure this Church’s future for generations to come.  Kes has written this wonderful picture book for love, not money, and has waived his author fees and has very generously said that any royalties due to him will be donated to the church fund.  The residents of Copford and Copford Church are much in his debt.

All of the cats mentioned in this story are, or have been, whiskered residents of the parish.  All of the two-legged characters in the story are long gone, but forever respected residents of the graveyard.  The book has been beautifully illustrated by Sally Anne Lambert.

If you would like to order a copy of this book at £6.99 each (excl. P&P), please email Anne Whistler at annewhistler2766@gmail.com .  If you would like a signed copy, with your own dedication included, this can be arranged at no extra charge!  This would make an ideal Christmas or birthday present for children and adults alike!
