Anne Stairmand

quirky and fun, Anne's whimsical books will get the littlie's imagination rolling!

Frivolous fun and characters reminiscent of Roald Dahl’s Twits and the like; Anne Stairmand’s books are full of elaborately kooky creations. An author with 30 years in education; Anne always dreamed of writing, so now she does! Her collection of books are suitable for a whole range of ages, for kids up to 11; they can grow up immersing themselves in her whimsical worlds. They’ll fall in love with the stories from the off, they’re funny, quirky and full of adventure, what more could you want for your bookworm!

Anne has a penchant for humour and her writing skills are apparent. The littlies won’t want to put these down and as Anne is an advocate of getting children writing, they may even inspire them to write their own stories. There’s nothing better than letting your imagination run wild!

There’s 5 books in the collection:

  • Desmond’s Dragon, ages 3-5
  • Archie Dingletrotter’s Flying Caravan, ages 4-6
  • The Phantom Sock Snatcher, ages 7-9
  • Petronella Pumpernickel-Pinkstocking Berck and Big Wart, ages 7-9
  • The Idiot Family at Home, ages 9-11+
