Leyburn author Hannah Russell publishes new Little Alf book

Hannah Russell with her new book.

Leyburn author Hannah Russell has penned another book about her 28-inch high pony Little Alf.

Miniature Shetland Little Alf has a series of books about him by owner Hannah.

Alf first rose to fame in October 2014 when his first book was published after Hannah started a blog about him.

His following soon grew on social media and over the years Little Alf has had quite a lot of adventures from meeting Royalty to winning New York’s literacy awards with his books.

A book on  his life story published last year was a best seller on Amazon.

This year Hannah has been working on a new book, the eighth to the Little Alf collection.

Little Alf and the Christmas Wish is aimed at children five years and under.

The book is £9.99 and went on sale last week with pre-orders to be released on December 1. In less than 24 hours the book sold out across the UK and the USA.

Hannah said: “I can’t believe the book has sold out; I’ve never had that happen so fast before.

“I was actually quite nervous about bringing the book out in the first place as It’s not my usual audience.

“I’m really excited to see what everyone thinks of the book, I love Christmas so it’s been a pleasure to work on with my illustrator.”

More copies will be released on December 10.
