Children’s author Bob Barnes is following up his successful debut novel with a sequel.

Mr Barnes, who writes under the name RJ Barnes, is set to release Arrek and the Zolganans as a follow up to his first offering, the Adventures of Arrek the Dragon.

The second in the 'Arrek' series, the book promises young readers 'an abundance of magic and mischievous adventures for Arrek to get up to'.

Transporting readers as far wide as Cornwall and Somerset, the author, from Sewards End, guides Arrek's story across various locations in the UK, using experiences from his own travels.

Each chapter comes with its own picture and offers a new bedtime story.
