Stonor Park has announced the launch of its second children’s book, The Moon Witch And The Thief.

It follows the success of its first – The Legend Of Tumblestone Hollow – earlier this year, which brought to life the story of how Stonor’s new adventure playground mysteriously arrived.

Written by acclaimed author Amy Sparkes, the new book tells the tale of woodland wonder, magic and mystery as the terrible Moon Witch tries to steal the ancient and magical moon stone for herself in order to discover its powerful secrets.

The first story is centred around the stone circle at the park, which has been a feature in its grounds long before the house was built 850 years ago, and reveals how the magical stones came to be. The second adventure tells how Tumblestone residents must fight to protect the stones from harm.

Lady Ailsa Stonor said: “It was incredibly important to us that our wonderful new playground had a narrative that anchors it to Stonor. The ancient standing stones have been here long before the house and parkland and they are such an important part of Stonor.

“Amy has done a wonderful job, as ever, and this book is enchanting, bringing in all the characters who live at Tumbestone Hollow but introducing the Moon Witch – an icy-haired baddie who we can all love to hate.”
