Mama Mia and the Pizza Pie Party
This 32-page full-colour children’s book is sold via the Aid to the Church in Need bookshop at £6.50 per copy.
Beautifully illustrated by his artist friend and neighbour, Jan Burrell, this charming story of the virtues of friendship and faith, set in a little Italian town in the 1950s, will also teach children and grandchildren a little Italian and how to make the perfect pizza. Bishop Mark, Bishop of Plymouth writes: “This gentle book is a tender reminder of the importance of family, faith, friendship and sharing good food. I recommend it and am grateful that all the proceeds will go to help needy children.”
Since publication in December 2020, Mama Mia has raised £3000 for children’s charities: £1000 for Mary’s Meals, £1000 for Aid to the Church in Need, £500 for a local church Scout group and £500 Little Harbour Children’s Hospice, Porthpean, Cornwall. This is a wonderful result and thanks go to the many people who have bought copies.
