Award winning author Tim Jorden has created a beautiful, enchanting children’s story – The Adventures of Poppy and Lord Ted. The much loved first part of the story, The First Summer, was launched in July 2021 and the story has continued in the next novel, The Return of Saint Nick - both winning the Golden Wizard Book Prize for 2022 AND The Golden Wizard Book Prize BOOK OF THE YEAR for 2022.
The importance of grandparents in a child’s life is undeniable and the story follows the extraordinary adventures of 8-year-old Poppy as she spends quality time with her grandparents in Derbyshire and with an amazing teddy bear called Lord Ted.
In the first book Poppy meets magical fairies, solves a theft of the crown jewels and has the pleasure of meeting grateful royalty; in the second we see Poppy and Lord Ted put themselves in danger to save the future of the British Monarchy. Written prior to the death of Queen Elizabeth II, Tim sees the story as a lasting memory of our late queen.
The wonderful relationship that Poppy has with her new friends helps her to learn and appreciate the core values of love, honesty and respect.
Listen to Tim’s interview with BBC Radio Derby in December ’21 about The Adventures of Poppy and Lord Ted; the creation and ideas, his childhood and the great work with schools across the country which continues into the new 22-23 school year.
