RED: A Manx Dragon Called Rufus
Written by Robert G Cowley
Illustrated by Karmen St John-Cain
Published by Bunch Books
'RED: A Manx Dragon Called Rufus' is the second in a series of children’s books written by local author Robert G Cowley and brought to life with the beautiful illustrations of Karmen St John-Cain.
It follows the tale of a young dragon called Rufus who doesn't feel as though he fits into his world and becomes quite lonely and isolated. We watch as Rufus learns his differences should be celebrated, not hidden away in a journey that will warm the hearts of readers young and old.
Full of magic, dragons and lots of lemonade, RED is a story of self-acceptance and discovering the power of our own voice.
All monies raised from the Manx Bedtime Stories are donated to local charities. The profits from RED raised an amazing £1000 for local mental health charity, Isle Listen, to help support their invaluable work in the community.
