It happens to us all - we all have to leave the nest, one way or the other. For Babs Vinden-Cantrell, it’s sharing her charming picture storybook with the world and introducing you to her Seagull Chicks, friends who get to leave their nest for the first time. What trouble might they get up to and will they stick together? Ideal for young children, Seagulls Don’t Eat Sorbet is a lovely illustrated adventure about courage, adventure and family! Seb, Petal, Chase, Romiley and Edge were born into the Blackpool Promenade community which they love, but they’re not allowed to leave their mum’s side - until one day when they’re finally allowed out on their first adventure. Without their parents! They fly along the sea front seeing the exciting amusements, fun-fair and lights. They fly over people on holiday and listen to the sounds of Blackpool. playing hide and seek, dancing for people on the pier and having a great time. They meet a few other promenade gulls as they make their way along the sea-front and they wonder if everywhere is the same. Excited by the lights and sounds, Chase and Edge fly into the amusement arcade on the pier. They laugh and play - until they realise they’re trapped! Seb, Petal and Romiley must come up with a plan to save the other chicks. Maybe the misfit gulls who don’t belong to any community can help? “It all started small,” explains Babs. “I spent many childhood holidays on the Fylde Coast and still stay a couple of times a year. A few years ago, my brother and nieces came back with a story about seagulls stealing everything but their sorbet. A lightbulb went on - maybe some seagulls are different! I wrote a book about seagull chicks and their antics and sent it to a friend, an ex-Eastenders actor, who referred me to ‘Reincarnathan’, a radio comedy in a similar genre. I cheekily sent a mail to one of the writers, who suggested I break the book into smaller adventures. I wouldn’t be where I am without their help, and I hope my books encourage the same love of nature in children that I have!” Brought up in Stockport, Babs Vinden-Cantrell spent many childhood holidays along the Fylde Coastline. She started life as a dancer, tasting corporate life before settling into the Military. She has travelled extensively, living in various locations, and has three grown-up children. Babs met artist Eszter from Kotiart and explained about her Seagulls. Eszter who is originally from Hungary captured the Seagulls in exactly the way that Babs wanted them, and they have had a wonderful journey together creating the stories.
