To celebrate the launch of the two latest titles in The Manor House Stories Series children’s book series, we are delighted to welcome Jani Tully Chaplin to our Daylesford farmshop for a book signing on Saturday 18th May.

Written and illustrated by Jani, The Manor House Stories Series are a series of 12 hardbacked children’s books with over 500 exquisite illustrations, each book set in a fine English manor house that brings to to life the characters, wildlife and animals that make the house tick.

With a foreword by Julian Fellowes who describes the tales as “a wonderful and detailed world in miniature full of truth and consequence, giving us lessons in life in the most charming way imaginable” these books will make a great addition to any children’s book shelf.

The two new titles launching this May at Daylesford are:

Rory Redshank the Footman – The Prince’s Visit

Patience Pigeon the Nanny – The New Arrival

Several already published titles in the series will also be available on the day including Chesterfield Penguin the Butler, Miss Miranda Mistlethrush and Radish Robin the Gardener.

Jani Tully Chaplin is an established designer with many prestigious credits to her name including work with Burberry, The Scotch House, RNLI and the Royal Society for Nature Conservation. She first created The Manor House Stories Series whilst raising her children in her family’s 17th century manor house in Devon and is currently illustrating the final four instalments in the series.
