Dilys Drewett teamed up with Pam and Mike Collier to produce an exciting story for preschoolers called Charlie the Chongololo.

The harmless creature is a favourite of children in Zimbabwe and the book focuses on a drama on the edge of the Zambezi Gorge.

Dilys is a freelance artist and illustrator and Pam and Mike have just moved to Nailsea from Africa, where they taught English and electronic engineering for 20 years.

The book will be officially launched at the annual craft fair at Nailsea Methodist Church, in Silver Street, on November 14.
