The Bus Stop at the End of the World
Singing cowboys, green creatures from the hedge and the fastest girl on two wheels might not be enough to save Ritchie from the most dangerous enemy known to man…
The Bus Stop at the End of the World is a fast moving adventure from Dan Anthony, the author of the popular Rugby Zombies series.
At the bus stop, halfway between his new home and school, Ritchie’s stumbled upon the spot where myth and real trouble get mixed up.
The book is published to coincide with National Storytelling Week (28 January – 4 February). To celebrate its launch Dan Anthony will be holding storytelling sessions with over 500 children from primary schools in Pembrokeshire at The Torch Theatre Milford Haven on Friday February 3rd.
A spokesperson on behalf of the publisher, Gomer Press, said
“We’re delighted that so many pupils will be joining Dan at these events to launch his new novel and are very grateful for the support of Pembrokeshire County Council for making this possible.
“Storytelling is a vital part of any child’s education and development and we are fortunate to have enthusiastic and committed authors like Dan who visit schools, libraries, festivals and bookshops to share their stories with young readers. Stories ignite the imagination, they enable us to share ideas and knowledge, they raise questions and, ultimately, they connect people.”
The Bus Stop at the End of the World is available from all good bookshops and online retailers
