Debi Evans: author of children's adventure stories adored around the world!
Welcome to my creative writing website
I am author of The Secret Adventures of Rolo and co-author of ‘The Secret Society of Dragon Protectors’ series of fantasy adventure books for children.
Here you can find out about the books I have written; enquire about a primary school visit, buy The Secret Adventures of Rolo books or Kindle editions, join Rolo’s fan club and report nature sightings.
It is the best
book I've ever read. My son loved it and I loved it! It's the way it's written
as if you're the dog and the best part is the begging when the dogs are barking
and the one that's not is one that gets picked. I would say that if you are a
dog, cat, fish or rabbit fan you'll love every page of it! Please write the
second book! Peter Murphy 'smurfy' Islington,
enjoyed this. Anyone who owns dogs will recognise their pet in Rolo. How lovely
to include so much local and natural history in the story and how telling that
it takes a little dog to remind us of the importance of it. Ms.
J. L. Carr
My 8 year old
daughter loves this book, we also have a Jack Russell which makes it all the
more special; we can imagine our dog doing similar things to Rolo. It is very
well written and teaches her other things along the way! It is imaginative and
keeps her guessing as to what will happen next so she just wants to keep on reading
it, looking forward to Rolo's next adventure! L and H Morse
I have been
reading this to my class of 8/9 year olds and they love it. It is written in
the first person by Rolo and my class have really connected with this. They
enjoy the humour, especially the thought of a dog writing a blog in secret, but
are still young enough to get caught up in and believe the fantasy element. I
am a bit biased because I love the other books by this author too. Highly
recommended to encourage reading and a love of books in this age group. Mrs
Malmesbury C of E Primary School were recently fortunate to
enjoy a second visit from the children’s author, Debi Evans during a repeat of
a hugely successful unit on Myths and Legends. Previously reluctant readers
have been thoroughly enthused to read, read and read more. It has also inspired
many of our children to pick up their pens and write their own creative
pieces' R. Bristow
Debi Evans, the author of the time travelling Rolo the terrier books -- and other earlier books -- has such imaginative flare coupled with an easy flowing personable style of writing. These books are a great read for children and adults! Not only do they stimulate reading skills, but the history and clever little anecdotes about the countryside enrich the reader's knowledge as well. The fun layout and charming illustrations compliment the stories. An intangible je ne sais quoi quality about the Rolo books leaves me feeling just a little bit wiser and more positive for having read them and I think, therefore, they must have the same affect on children. Deeper dimensions in the writing than, say, Harry Potter. I would like to see Rolo made into an animated film/films and if Debi keeps going with this series, she may well get a phone call from someone in the film industry one day soon.
