20 November 2017
The Parish of Boston has announced that its long-awaited children’s book, Bo The Boston Church Mouse, is to be launched this Thursday (23rd November 2017).
Following a competition to find an illustrator for the title, the work of Yanna Lawson will take pride of place on the book’s front cover (shown above) and feature alongside Victoria Buxton’s written story.
The story centres on Bo, a small mouse trying to find a new home in Boston. It is said that Bo’s story is intended to highlight, in a gentle way, the need to treat all people with love, kindness and care, regardless of the country of their birth. Speaking of this new work, the Revd Alyson Buxton, Team Rector of the Parish of Boston, has said: “The whole team at the Stump are very excited to be welcoming Bo to the family as he begins his adventures with us.”
The book launch, which will be attended by Victoria Buxton, will coincide with the town’s Illuminate Parade and the switching on of the Christmas lights. St Botolph’s will this year be included in the festive market with stalls and the hosting of Santa’s Grotto, and its coffee shop, shop and Lego Build will all also be open. Bo The Boston Church Mouse is priced at £11.99 and all are welcome to attend the book launch at 6.45pm on Thursday evening. Further information on the parish may be found here.
