The Villes is a charming series (www.thevilles.com), of children’s books written by Martin to promote problem solving skills in children. The Villes are magical lands where something is wrong. In Tiredsville, for instance, everyone is perpetually tired. In Fullsville, they are continually feeling like they’ve over-eaten and in Coldsville they are always feeling…yes, you’ve guessed it, COLD!!
Herman, Martin’s rather eccentric and unconventional hero starts out each morning with a journey on The Magical Bus and finds himself in one of The Villes. Taking an outsider’s perspective on things, he soon uncovers the reason behind the problem and sets about putting it right – making some new friends along the way.
“This is a lovely book to read to your child, full of warmth and humour. It held top slot in our household at bedtimes for at least a month – a record!” Jeremy Vine, TV & Radio Broadcaster“
