"Miceterpiece" in Print and Paint

Original illustrations from the Beauty Bank books by Michael Beddard (author) and Rebecca Yoxall (illustrator).






Lost in the Snow

Tells the story of three small field mice called Rachel, Jack and Uncle Olivier and the adventures they have when they shelter from a storm in a village theatre. It is the first book in the series called Tales from Beauty Bank – all inspired by the places and wildlife of Cheshire, England and all reminding us of the good which comes from helping others and repaying kindness.


The Parcel

An important package is missing. Can the mice and their little friends find it, and return it, in time to save a very important day in the life of Beauty Bank?






The stories can be enjoyed by all ages, to read alone or to share.
The books can be purchased during the Exhibition or online here.
