Abie Longstaff comes from a large and (in her words) particularly insane family of 6 children. As the oldest of 6 girls she remembers desperately searching for anywhere she could get some privacy. She sometimes used to hide up trees or in the linen closet with a book. For Abie, writing has always been an escape and as a child she filled notebook after notebook with stories.
Abie’s new series is The Magic Potions Shop and she’s kindly called in to tell us all about it. Welcome to GHB Abie.
The Magic Potions Shop
If you could make a potion, what would it do?
Make you fly?
Make your hair grow?
Turn you invisible?
What kind of ingredients would you need?
Where would you collect them?
In the cold of the Frozen Tundra?
In the heat of the Parched Desert?
Underwater in the Fickle Sea?
High on the Peak of Peril?
During a thunderstorm
Who would you help with your potion?
Where would you sell your potion?
In a shop?
In a hospital?
In a caravan?
In a hollow tree?
There’s a lot to learn when you’re making potions. Watch out because you might find things don’t always go to plan. At least, that’s what the Potions Apprentice has discovered.
Come and find out how he gets on in The Magic Potions Shop – an exciting new series written by Abie Longstaff and illustrated by Lauren Beard.
Intrigued? Dying to get your hands a copy? Well maybe you can. To celebrate the release of the first book in this fantastic new series, Abie is giving away five copies of The Magic Potions Shoe HERE.
Thanks for stopping by Abie and GOOD LUCK with the new series.
