AN Exmouth pensioner is celebrating seeing her second children's book make it into print.

Grandmother-of-five Enid Pearson, of Bapton Lane, spent the last year writing and illustrating Exmouth Duck in Trouble - the story of a cardboard duck which in its first tale got lost at sea.

Former Bassets Farm Primary School teacher Enid came up with the inspiration for her latest tale, a follow-on from Exmouth Duck, after creating the cardboard duck with her two youngest grandchildren and forging adventures for it - which included being washed down the brook.

Enid, a founding member of the Halsdon Play Group, said she is already working on her next books for youngsters - the story of a teddy bear.

"I have been writing and illustrating for years. It's not very easy to get published," she said.

* Exmouth Duck in Trouble is available at £4.99 in Exmouth from Little Evers, the Strand Fish Shop and the Discount Bookshop.
