Geronimo the grasshopper

Geronimo the grasshopper has been published by the Essex Field Club. The second book in the Insect Adventures series of children’s stories tells the tale of Geronimo the grasshopper, as he learns to jump higher and goes on an exciting adventure when he leaves his heathland home. Will he return in time to win the Mould Medal in the Heathland Games? The book was published by the Essex Field Club in July 2017 and has a foreword by Jimmy Doherty. The illustrations are by Andrea Ellis of Unequi Science & Creativity. To buy the book (£5.99 + £1.50 UK p&p) visit http://timsinsectadventures.blogspot.co.uk/p/geronimo-grasshopper.html link.

The books in the Insect Adventures series are designed to appeal to children between the ages 5-8 who are able to read alone or they can be read by parents at bedtime. The stories are split into eight easy to read chapters and introduce children to the lives of insects and how they adapt and survive in the wild.
