New chil­dren’s tale of Mull sea uni­corn launches in Tober­mory

The Oban Times - - Leisure -

A NEW chil­dren’s book, where the story be­gins in Ben­der­loch, moves through Oban and on to Mull and Iona, launches in Tober­mory on Mon­day May 29.

Writ­ten by Jen­nifer T Do­herty and il­lus­trated by Gil­lian Ste­wart, who has fam­ily links to Mull, The Sea Uni­corn of Mull comes from Scot­tish publisher Ser­a­fina Press.

Books from the press have cov­ered the Bor­ders, Fife and East Lothian, but Jen­nifer Do­herty wanted the next book to be set on the west coast.

‘I have vis­ited Oban, Mull and Iona many times over the last cou­ple of years with an ever-in­creas­ing fond­ness for it. Af­ter many years of liv­ing in the Bor­ders, I have moved to Glas­gow and I love be­ing closer to Oban and Mull,’ she said. The beauty and sense of magic here made it the ob­vi­ous set­ting for a story and I hope chil­dren - lo­cal and vis­it­ing - will en­joy the tale of the sea uni­corn’s search for his heart.’

The launch event will be at Mull Tackle and Books, Tober­mory, on Mon­day May 29, from 11am to 1pm. The book will be stocked there and will also be avail­able at Water­stones in Oban and on CalMac fer­ries.
