George and the Legend of Shmog

George Earwicker, age 11, of Chideock has published his first
book to much critical acclaim (or so he says!) It is called “The Legend of
Shmog” and is an adventure fantasy featuring a blackbird hero called Snibble
and a woodlouse named Mr Bacson.

George started the book during a “boring drama lesson”, when
he was supposed to be concentrating on a Russian film…in Russian. He wrote the
story up longhand in a series of chapters before putting the whole thing down
on his laptop, and then decided he would like to get it published to see if
anybody would buy it.

George had been learning about the famine in East Africa at
school, so decided to split the proceeds from any sales 50/50 with the DEC East
Africa appeal. The Bookshop in Bridport
offered to stock copies, and Waterstones agreed to host a book signing in the
summer. The Legend of Shmog has raised over £100 to date, but Chideock’s own
Londis Store still has copies available, so why not get a copy to discover what
all the fuss is about – before the next episode in the Shmog saga is
published…oh yes, he’s working on it already.

£4 a copy, with £2 going to the East Africa
famine appeal. Copies available from the Londis Store, Chideock.
