TWO friends who put their heads together to write a book of children's stories and poetry are celebrating its publication.

Green Frogs and Purple Motorbikes is the brainchild of Betty Tomlinson and Linda Dalton - two pensioners who have been firm friends for 25 years.

Mrs Tomlinson, of Larkins Close, Baldock, said: "Linda is a great artist and I have a vivid imagination.

"I can make up stories at the drop of a hat and enjoy telling them to my grandchildren.

"I have also been writing poetry all my life, using life experience for inspiration."

The children's book, aimed at four to eight-year-olds, includes various colourful tales such as a short story about a mouse that cannot eat cheese.

The paperback is available to buy for £4 at David's Gift Shop, Eastcheap, Letchworth GC.

A donation of 50p will be made to Mencap for every book sold.
