Charlie Peach’s Pumpkins and Other Stories

Charlie Peach’s Pumpkins and Other Stories


‘Charlie Peach’s Pumpkins and other stories’ is Jenny Sanders’ second collection of six humorous tales. Once again, she treats her readers to quirky characters and another abundance of welcome nonsense.

This time, you’ll be taken from a disastrous garden experiment which finds success from an unlikely source, to the new ambassador’s attempts to solve an international crisis in Carletia, and to a crumbling castle which threatens to wipe out the fortunes of the former residents. An enterprising skateboarder tries to save his grand-father’s reputation with an impromptu wine-tasting session; the monarchy in Sloping-Sideways explore solutions to their secret boredom; and an inventor looks to her famous heritage to help her godson escape his school bullies.

About the Author

Jenny Sanders grew up in a house full of books, and still believes that if you enjoy reading you need never be bored. While tackling an entire book in one go can be daunting, she knows that reading a complete story in one sitting is enormously satisfying. She enjoys author visits, and creative writing with Key Stage 2 children; and has enormous fun in the process. If you enjoyed ‘The Magnificent Moustache and other stories’ you’ll love this new collection.
