Children pretending to be Roman soldiers
  “A children’s story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children’s story
in the slightest.”
C.S. Lewis
 
 
blank top
Man and child paddling
 
For children aged 6 to 60.
 
  The books we love and remember
most are usually the ones we read
and played with as children.
 
  The Manx Transport Colouring Book
is proving very popular both with
children and with parents who are
transport enthusiasts.
 
  Our children’s books Tram Tales
of the Manx Electric Railway stories
1-3 are also packed with illustrations
of the railway. More might be
coming soon.
 
  Narrated by the author the Tram
Tales are also available on audiobook
and MP3 download, surrounded and
enhanced by the sounds of the
tramway in action. So, if a tram
whistles, it REALLY whistles.
Horses clop, brakes ratchet, phones
ring and water sloshes. You might
even hear a dinosaur roar…
 
  Our children’s section is expanding.
Apart from the colouring book and
the Tram Tales series, Things to do
with Vikings
and A Young Manx
History
are factual introductions
aimed at older children. In fact many
adults say that Things to do with
Vikings
, is a good introduction to
the lives of the Norsemen for adults
too. Extra points for those who notice
the pun in the title: thing is the
Viking word for assembly.
 
  In general we try to avoid saying that
the books are for a particular
age-group as we feel that people
develop at their own pace. Besides,
books should be enjoyable whatever
the age of the person looking
at them…
 
  Have a look at these and other
people’s lives through our books;
we hope you find something you like.
