There are two worlds, or realms if you will. There is the Realm of Reality, or the Human World, and there is the Realm of Imagination, populated by figments of our imagination. Bizarre animals, Imaginary Friends, Heroes and most unfortunately, the vile and loathsome Monsters we conjure up in our minds when we're most frightened. Thomas Llewellyn doesn't know anything about this other world; neither does his brat of a little brother, Isaac nor their young cousin, Emily. They soon come to learn about the existence of this strange world when they are suddenly and violently pulled from their own by a turbulent vortex. Faced with having to prove just what they are, they must try to find a way home while all the while, someone plots to keep the human children where they are so that they can be used for a terrible purpose.

Simon Adepetun will be at the Weaverham Library, Weaverham Northwich, on Monday 21st August at 11am.

Simon Adepetun, author of 'The Bee Hive', will be giving a reading from his book and be available to answer any questions you may have.

Eleven-year-old Daniel Jeremiah Chambers has parents, Philip and Susan, who love work and shopping and who just don't listen. Daniel is an only child ... no, he's lying ... he has a sister, Alice, who has a dolly fixation; Dan is sure she is an alien.


So, Dan has a few problems, none insurmountable, until his friend, Benji, introduces him to the find of the century - a derelict bee hive which could become a den. Of course, such a simple thing is never so simple and when Dan finds a map, well, all kinds of things go horribly wrong. For example - Alice noses her nosey way in and two strange men suddenly turn up wanting what's theirs - and then there's the bank too.


'The Beehive' by Simon Adepetun is a tight little sharp-witted bumble through a period in Dan's young life.

Felix loves to read but never imagined he could find books such an adventure, until he meets a certain grumpy - and hungry - bear. Together, they enter the world of books - quite literally!

Join Felix and see if he can help the 'Bookmark Bear' stop the Scribingers, who lurk in books, trying to make mischief and sow confusion...Will they save the story?And more importantly, will Felix make it back home?
