Author Hayley Davenport-Smith debuts with her book Labyrinth Junction. It is an exciting, fast-moving fantasy story full of perilous adventures and heartwarming friendships. This book is aimed at 8 – 12-year-olds. A story about the sheer bravery and determination of a young boy who is prepared to risk his life in order to find his way home. We have two copies of the book to give away.
To escape the clutches of two bullies Ben climbs into the gloomy cave. It is there that he
Ben is soon trapped inside the strange and magical land of Numblebrook. He must befriend a pretty orphan girl called Amy and her pet dragon to stay alive. Together with the strange Moonbeamer people, they set off on a series of dangerous missions. They must solve a riddle, free the land of the evil King and get Ben back home.
With five children of her own and a classroom under her tutelage, Hayley Davenport-Smith has ample experience in what makes children’s imaginations soar.“I wrote this book after being inspired by my own children and the children I have taught as a primary school teacher over the last fifteen years,” explains Hayley. “Being a teacher is rewarding, but often emotionally challenging and you meet children from all walks of life. Every child has their own individual strengths and weaknesses, but I find that all children have one thing in common … a love of fiction books.”
This was a personal book for Hayley, not only because her 12 year old daughter illustrated it and designed the cover, but because of the young minds she hopes to capture:“My favourite part of the teaching day was the last half an hour, where I would sit all the children on the carpet and read a couple of chapters from an exciting fiction book,” she says. “Every child sat in silence, mesmerised, hanging on to every word as they were transported into a fantasy land, a far-away place, their imaginations working in overdrive. I wanted to create a story that would mesmerise children and carry them away into another exciting, fantasy world.”
