A HUDDERSFIELD man has published his first children's book, but is now planning a series.
Ian France, of Sheepridge, launched his book, The Adventures Of Christian, on Sunday.
He signed copies at the `Books & ??????' shop at Britannia Road in Slaithwaite.
Mr France is a friend of the owner, Melanie Roberts (left), who has 40 signed copies of the book on sale.
Picking up his copy is Edward Sykes.
The book is set in the 1950s and tells the story of a young schoolboy called Christian who gets into a series of exciting adventures.
Mrs Roberts said:
"It is a good piece of old- fashioned children's writing. It is a really lovely book and sets the scene brilliantly for the next adventure in the series."
