Drumendus: Mission to the Drum Planet
Mowsley resident Andrew Ashwin’s debut children’s novel, Drumendus: Mission to the Drum Planet, has just been released in paperback. The story follows best friends, Ella and Freddie, on a space expedition with a musical twist, to the mysterious planet Drumendus. Accompanied by the brilliant and eccentric Aunt Belinda, the most famous astronaut in history, will they uncover the purple planet’s secrets and reveal the truth about Ella’s family?
As a musician and music teacher, Andrew wanted to write a children’s novel with sound and music as central themes. He is passionate about music education, and believes every child should have the chance to experience the joy of music.
Best friends, Ella and Freddie, blast off to Drumendus on a homemade spaceship invented by brilliant and eccentric Aunt Belinda, the most famous astronaut in history. Will Ella be able to face her fears and uncover the truth about her family’s past? What other secrets will she uncover on this unexpected, musical adventure to the extraordinary purple planet?
Thanks so much for reading, and I hope this is something that could be put into the next Kibworth Chronicle. I look forward to hearing from you – do let me know if you need anything else!
Have a Drumendus afternoon!
