The latest Children's novel from Steve Keeping
Book One ‘The Flyer’ is Born
This is the first in a series of exciting new children’s adventure novels by author Steve Keeping. The main character ‘Chubbly’ a short slightly overweight thirteen year old intellectual schoolboy. His face was rounded, covered with youthful freckles, and he had the brightest of blue eyes; always curious and seeking out the next adrenaline-surge. His complexion was fair and his red hair almost exactly matched the colour of his favourite flying suit. A boy absolutely in love and obsessed with aeroplanes. The story starts with Chubbly having an almost real and absolutely fantastic dream as a result of eating too much of his grandad’s homemade goats cheese!
This children’s paperback is a breath of fresh air, and will undoubtedly become a number one best seller in bookshops throughout the United Kingdom.
Charles Stanton, children’s literary critic.
Book Two 'A Hunch in Paris'
Chubbly launches the Flyer into the clear pastel blue London skies turning due east, to begin his new adventure in the most dark and mysterious gothic parts of the city of Paris France. There he makes friends with two young French children Clauden and Esmerela, both distant relatives of people who today still play a most important part in French history.
Clauden is related to Claude Frollo the Archdeacon of the great Cathedral of Notre Dame, who unfortunately met his demise falling to the ground when pushed from the great heights of the cathedral by Quasimodo the hunchback. He was a hideously deformed creature and the cathedrals deaf bell ringer, who is said to have existed back in the year 1482, left abandoned as a baby and adopted by Frollo.
Esmerela is distantly related to Esmeralda the beautiful young barefooted Gypsy dancer and magical entertainer. Once loved by all of the people, and became hated when they started to think that she was in fact a witch. Both Clauden and Esmerela believe that the Hunchback still exists. Chubbly joins them on a magical adventure somewhere dangerously deep, dark, cold, and smelly in a huge maze of dungeons hidden deep down below the Cathedral of Notre Dame.
