Overview

How would you feel if you found you were lost on a riverbank in Dwarf City?

Would you expect to find yourself captured by a dark witch, in a charming tale of good against evil?

And would you anticipate transportation into another world, where you are chased by a Wizard in an exciting adventure around the UK Canal system?

Magic and mystery, friendship and history, this is a charming tale of good against evil.

The backdrop of the old canal intertwined with real-life characters and boats gives the story an imaginative edge which will inspire readers to visit the Inland Waterways for themselves.

Appealing to all age groups, you will be taken from humour to sadness, fantasy to reality and into another world (or maybe two).

A humorous and light-hearted insight into canal life at its best, this book will draw you into the world of the mysterious and sometimes dark liquid highway. It will see you laughing, but often from the edges of your seat.

Written in over 1600 verses of lilting rhyme, if you already enjoy the good v evil of Tolkien's "The Hobbit", the lilt of Julia Donaldson's "The Gruffalo" or the classic tales of "Rupert The Bear", then you will love Perriwillow.

About the Author

Janul grew up in the Black Country, living in Quarry Bank, UK and grew up surrounded by derelict canals. Much has changed. Writing from the age of 12, including songs, poetry, and shows, the tale of Perriwillow was born in 1980 and loved by all who read the draft. Janul had no idea where the tale would lead and had to wait nearly 40 years for her canal experiences to fill the gaps. Several other books emerged along the way, and were published first, this paving the way for publishing. After suffering the day job for most of her life and by now living full time on the canal, Janul escaped the rat race and took her place on the UK canals, working on and owning a variety of boats, which indulged her lifelong passion. She learned much as a professional Narrowboat skipper on large passenger boats in London, as a boat broker and still owns Canal Experience, a training school for inland waterway steering of narrow and wide craft, based in 2 places near Watford. In 2019, it took a year to finally tackle the story of Perriwillow, which showcases many of the Author's friends and their boats, including Terry, owner of Sarpedon. It was, indeed, he who taught her to steer a narrowboat, way back in 1980. Janul can be seen with her boats, Storm, The Crimson Pirate, BCN 108 and occasionally, with the truly, unruly Constance.
