The Poesy Ring

By Bob Graham
Illustrated by Bob Graham

The poesy ring flew high, caught by the wind. And with the breeze in its tail, the horse turned and galloped. The ring tumbled end over end, and settled deep in a meadow over the sea...

From the multi-award winning Bob Graham comes a romantic, hopeful and exquisitely-illustrated story, perfect for giving as a gift to the one that you love. It's 1830 in County Kerry, Ireland, and a gold ring is thrown into the wind by a young woman on a black horse... And as the seasons pass, and then the years, the little treasure finds itself on the most astonishing journey, finally settling at the bottom of a deep sea. Will the ring, inscribed with “love never dies”, ever fulfil its destiny, and find the finger of a woman truly loved?

  • A picture book to give as a Valentine's, engagement or wedding present.
  • Another life and love-affirming story from the picture book master that is Bob Graham.
  • A story about a little treasure that makes an extraordinarily big journey. A story which celebrates the idea that we all end up where we need to be, no matter how long that may take...
