Children from Fairhaven Primary School helped Norwich artist, Sandra Derry launch her second children’s book, Molly Moo, the independent cow at Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden.

Sandra read Molly Moo to the children, along with her first book Curly Sheep’s Bad Hair Day. Molly Moo tells the story of an adventurous cow, who decides to try and find the milking parlour, without her farmer’s help.

Sandra Derry said: “I am really pleased that the children from Fairhaven Primary School were able to join me for the reading and help bring Molly Moo to life. I would also like to thank Fairhaven Garden for hosting the event.”

“This is the second book that I have written and illustrated, introducing children to farm and countryside life. The animals are based at Applegate Farm; I am planning to introduce more characters in six further books over the next two years.”
