Published Books

Through Toadstool Tales, Charlotte L. Taylor has published three books in the Broken Twigs series, which follows the feisty and mischievous Twigs as she learns how to become the best version of herself, and is currently writing book four.

Accompanying this series is a collection of picture books for the 8 - 12 year old, which look more closely at the true legend of each mythical creature that Twigs meets along the way.

In addition to these, there is a published curriculum map available to support the teaching of guided reading lessons and P.S.H.E. linked to Broken Twigs: Farewell to Faerie Forest. For funsies, there is also a linked activity book, which offers colouring, sudoku, crosswords and more.

Recently, Charlotte has also published a fun rhyming picture book for EYFS and KS1 children.
