the Monkey King’s Revenge, the sequel to local author Oliver Eade’s Moon Rabbit children’s novel, was launched yesterday at Melrose’s Corn Exchange.

Readers met retired physician Dr Eade, who lives in Darnick, and the book’s illustrator Alma Dowle from Ettrick.

The fantasy book, pictured, sees a girl kidnapped and taken back to the monkey king’s dungeon in China where the curse of the Jade Snake threatens to turn her into the monkey queen.

The novel, nominated for The People’s Book Prize, was inspired by Rachel Liu, 12, from London who won an online competition to suggest a link between the River Tweed and ancient China.
