A Reydon man’s first book, about a village of scarecrows, has been published with all profits going to charity.
Written by Bob Mole, ‘Jeremy, the City Slicker’ follows a scarecrow who gets involved in local life having moved to a village.
As an outsider his contributions are not well-received but, as the tale progresses, we meet a host of amusing characters in a tale of petty crime and competition to win the Scarecrow Trail trophy.
Proceeds from the book, illustrated by Peter Wilks, will go to Sole Bay Care Fund, which provides short-term emergency care for people in their own homes.
“It’s a way of expressing my humour to a wider audience,” said Mr Mole, who is working on two sequels.
“Really the object is to make people smile.”
The book costs £3 and is available from Barbrooks and Boydens Stores in Reydon, Southwold Library and Chapman’s in Southwold.
