Mrs Twinkle Series
Ideal for 5 – 7 year olds, “The Mrs Twinkle Series”, is authored by educator and artist, Annabelle Wadsworth.
“Mrs Twinkle” bridges the gap between picture books and young adult fiction. The imaginative stories follow a star and a boy as they travel throughout the world discovering animals, habitat, our heritage and relationships. Annabelle has also subtly addressed possible solutions for low self esteem through positive reinforcement.
The Mrs Twinkle Series expands the reader’s awareness of the world around them, ideal for holiday reading or as a tool within the classroom.
Enjoyed by young listeners to senior primary school students, “Mrs Twinkle” is described as “fun, because it teaches me about the environment.”
First released in November 2006, “The Adventures of Mrs Twinkle” (Book One) is now in its second print run.
Annabelle has lived mainly in Byron Bay since 1993 and part time in Sydney where she has two grown up children in their 30′s.
She has founded a Wellness Centre up the north coast, is a serious meditator and believes in God’s healing energy and miracles.
