About the event

Join Grace Olson for Easter Holiday Story Time!

Grace’s brilliant book, Merlin Finds His Magic, is a beautifully uplifting story of courage and friendship, perfect for those just starting to read for themselves, but it’s also a great length to be read aloud!

Grace will read an extract from the story, and you’ll learn some fun things about how amazing sheep are! Did you know that they can remember at least 50 faces forever and recognise faces on photographs?!

The Book

What does magic do? To find his way back home, Merlin the lamb must learn the answer to this question. With the help of three bouncy goats, three wise horses and a little girl who can understand what animals say, Merlin goes on an adventure and discovers that real magic is more wonderful than he could ever have imagined…

A whimsical tale for all animal lovers

About the Author

Grace Olson is the author of heart-warming horse books for grownups. This is her first foray into the world of children’s books, featuring her real-life pet sheep, Merlin.

Merlin works as a therapy animal helping lots of people to feel happier and has stolen the heart of The Yorkshire Vet, Julian Norton, during a few filming sessions which are soon to be aired on Ch 5.

Grace hopes that her Merlin book will help children to see that sheep can be cuddly too and that real magic surrounds us all the time…

If you would like to see videos of the real Merlin and his woolly brothers you can follow Grace Olson-Author on Facebook or Instagram. You can also read more about Grace on her website.
