Maggie Moon Children’s Book


“Maggie Moon And The Magnificent Mushroom Year” – written by Doddington’s very own Margaret-Ann Maxwell.

Thanks to a fantastic initial response, the book has been reprinted in time for Christmas.

Maggie lives in a scrapyard together with her mum who is an engineer and part time fire fighter. She sleeps in a treehouse along with her collie dog Jack and a wild tawny owl. Each day a new delivery brings an exciting project – old bits of machinery and pieces of scrap are recycled and made into something new.

But Maggie’s idyllic life is turned upside down when Ronald Crump, an international property developer, turns up and sets out to buy everybody’s land!

Follow Maggie’s journey as she struggles with the challenges ahead and tries desperately to save everything that they own. A heart stopping finale is in store as both sides aim to pip each other to the post and claim the land ultimately for themselves.
