About Sylvia Crook

My name is Sylvia Crook and I'm incredibly happily married to Martin. We have enjoyed a 28 year love affair and I'm the mother of four children, I've spent much of my life bringing up our two girls and two boys as a full time mother. Once they all became reasonably self sufficient (I know, they never are!) I wrote a children's story which I was in the process of trying to get published when I developed thyroid cancer in 2001. After my recovery I decided a fresh start was needed so I embarked upon a City & Guilds floristry course at the age of 47. I went on to open a florist shop specialising in weddings, with a business partner, which was enjoyable and rewarding but I always wanted to return to my first love; writing. After losing my mother I decided it was time to take time out and fell back into writing as a form of solace. 'Attached' was inspired after spending a night in The Bailhouse; a boutique hotel in the historic city of Lincoln. I hope you enjoy my story.

Review by: 80sgirlatheart on Nov. 07, 2012 :
I got this book to read with my 7 year old son. For his age he struggles with reading and needs extra help both at home & school. He is easily distracted and needs to be kept interested.
I read this book through by myself and then read along with my son. Firstly I shall say it was nicely laid out, not too long but not too short. The pictures are colourful, informative and fun!
The story revolves around a lovely little family of snails, with loveable names, each snail is drawn in a fun way and has a lovely small description of each one. The book is easy to read, it's informative with subtle hints at safety and dangers, I think this is a fantastic idea and explained to the child in a simple way.
I thoroughly enjoyed the story, my son giggled several times throughout and it kept his attention and I would recommend this book to parents of children from 7 years old upwards.
I hope to see a follow on to this as its left both myself and my son thinking "what next?!"
Give it a go folks!
