Au­thor’s royal ap­proval

Southern Telegraph - - NEWS -

Set­ting out to help put Rock­ing­ham on the map, au­thor Kez Wick­ham St Ge­orge has re­ceived a thankyou let­ter from the Queen for send­ing copies of her chil­dren’s books to the royal fam­ily.

A book cel­e­brat­ing the wildlife and nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment of the Rock­ing­ham coast­line was one of the books sent, with Wick­ham St Ge­orge say­ing she wanted to show off what Rock­ing­ham had to of­fer.

Peli the Pel­i­can and Friends is set on Pen­guin Is­land and fol­lows a pel­i­can who gets stuck in a storm and has to find his way home.

That book and an­other, Sea Pea, were sent four months ago, with Wick­ham St Ge­orge last week re­ceiv­ing a let­ter thank­ing her for the gifts.

Her books are pub­lished lo­cally by Pi­cardie Press.

“I just wanted the fam­ily to be able to read about our beau­ti­ful Rock­ing­ham,” the au­thor said.

Wick­ham St Ge­orge has also sent books to the Dan­ish royal fam­ily.
