The Breathing Wheel is a tale of mystery and imagination by Anthony Ravenwood and we launched his début novel at the tail end of last year.
It has a splendid baddie the kids will love to hate called Gronwolfe, a twisted old soul with nothing more than vengeful havoc on his mind.
The hero of the piece is Jacob Gwytherin and alongside his childhood sweetheart Martha, readers will discover spectacular dryads, gryphons, sinister spirits and twisted hags too; the illustrations by Stephen Bayliss are fabulous.
This fast-paced quest has a full cast of mystical characters who find themselves embroiled in an evil curse destined to destroy the village and kill everyone in its wake and Ant embraced the challenge of writing a soundtrack to accompany the book – no mean feat!
On top of that, he’s going to be performing the story with magnificent songs that will really bring the tale to life, live. Take a peek at his Facebook page for more details of the performace.
Ant has just released a creepy trailer featuring Gronwolfe which I thought you might enjoy, well, you know what I mean…
If you’d like to come along to the event, he’d love to see you there – visit Ant’s website and keep an eye on his blog posts for more teasers and you might find it useful to subscribe to his feed so you don’t miss a thing.
The Breathing Wheel is a cracking read for young ones and a perfectly chilling tale for parents to read them at bedtime.
Moo haaaa haaaaa!
