Thursday 10th July 2014

Shane Spall’s heartwarming and hilarious PRINCESS MATILDA COMES HOME (Ebury Press) is published today – discover Shane and Timothy’s adventures on the second leg of their very big adventure.

From Matilda’s winter berth in Cardiff, Shane and Tim follow the Welsh coast, before ambitiously deciding to visit the Isle of Man and Northern Ireland. Along the way they cross Cardigan Bay in the company of a pod of dolphins, meet the king and queen of Piel Island, get lost in shipping lanes near Liverpool, successfully cross the notorious Irish Sea (twice!), accidentally sail through an army firing range, and experience the matchless beauty of Scotland’s Caledonian canal. Emerging into the North Sea at Inverness, they set a course down the east coast for London, back where their journey began.

“This is a warm and life-affirming read, simply yet beautifully told. But it comes with a health warning – anyone reading it will want to throw in their job, pack a bag, and run away to sea” Mail on Sunday
