Captain Satsuma Limited

My names James Hopson and I'm a new children's storybook author based in Cornwall. My first book entitled Captain Satsuma has Landed has just been self-published and is now available to purchase through my website. The book is a fast paced fun adventure for children 5-8 year old age bracket, and is the first in a series of stories involving the Captain and his team, the Frugee 4. Containing lots of colourful illustrations and around 6500 words, the book has been printed to a high standard, and would make a lovely present for a young child. The story is full of humour which it combines with subtle but important messages about healthy eating and lifestyle. My company was created to tackle the challenge of getting children to eat their recommended five portions of fruit and vegetables a day in both an imaginative and creative way. To do this I developed a group of living fruit and vegetable characters, and made them into a super-hero team. My thought was 'Who better to promote fruit and vegetables, but the actual fruit and veg themselves. My book has been beautify illustrated by Russell Becker, who has managed to produce a set of characters just how I envisaged them in my mind. A important aspect of my work is the importance for my book/website etc not only to appeal to the children, but also to adults. Parents, grandparents or guardians spend a lot of time reading with their children, so the book has to have some appeal to them too. There are some exciting plans in the pipeline including a major competition announcement in the coming months.
