A tale of fantasy, of Dwarfling struggles and a Wizard who got it wrong, causing total havoc on the UK canals.

If you already enjoy the good v evil of Tolkien's "The Hobbit", crossed with the lilt of Julia Donaldson's "The Gruffalo" and the cheeky humour of Pam Ayres, then you will love Perriwillow.

Follow the Dwarf on a real life journey around the UK canal system, as he flees from evil to get back home.

A humorous and lighthearted insight into canal life at its best, this book will draw you into a world of the mysterious and sometimes dark liquid highway of the Inland Waterways.

Different to anything else you have ever read, this is a compelling and easy to read verse novel with an epic 1600 verses, which will leave you laughing, but often from the edge of your seat.

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. 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. In 2019, it took a year to finally tackle the story, 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."
