Award Winning Family Travel blogger debuts the magical ‘Extraordinary Travellers’ adventure series

Karen Beddow, Editor of the award winning travel blog Mini Travellers released her debut book this week The Little Museum, the first in the Extraordinary Travellers adventure series.

The Little Museum is a page-turning travel adventure story for boys and girls aged 8-11.  With a magic map, a clever invention and an exciting race through France, there is also a little bit of French thrown in for good measure.

The story starts when Lucy and her younger brother, Tom, find out their mum is part of a group of Extraordinary Travellers, they have no idea how much their life is going to change and what adventure awaits them.

In The Little Museum you join them on their quest to discover why the Eiffel Tower has disappeared, what else the Little Museum is going to contain and why the President of France needs their mums’ help to sort it all out.

Karen’s co-author Lyndsay Macaulay an education consultant with over a decade of experience working both in schools, colleges and schools publishing has also created bespoke teaching materials to use alongside the novel. Perfect for these challenging times when we don’t know if the children will be in school from one day to the next.

Speaking on writing the book, Karen Beddow said:

“Getting to know the places you are visiting has always been important to us but what was so inspiring was that when we were travelling the girls had so many questions. Why do they say this, where is that, what are they doing, how do they do that etc.

As regular travellers we had a lot of the answers but all we had shown the girls before we went away was a couple of YouTube videos and a tourism booklet.

We knew there had to be a better way to excite and inform children about where they were going, but also to entertain them on the journey. Hence the idea for the Extraordinary Travellers adventure series was born.

We hope that the ‘Extraordinary Travellers’ series will educate, inspire and entertain the children of those parents who want to teach their kids more about the world and inspire the to understand it.

I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.
