Sutton mum's bathtime story to be published
A mum's story will be read to children all over the country after she won a writing contest.
Emma Greaves' story was picked as the winner in bubble bath company Matey's competition to find a tale to help parents and their children bond at bath time.
Banstead Road woman Mrs Graves' story is based on the characters featured in the designs of Matey bottles and gives children activities to do including making a beard out of bubbles while their parents read them the tale.
Mrs Greaves, 37, said: "My inspiration came from the three Matey characters - Molly the mermaid, Peg Leg who's naughty and the original Max the sailor.
"I haven't done anything like this msince I was at university but once I had the inspiration the rest came quite easily. It's called Ahoy There Me Hearties!"
The book is now being published and will go out to parents across the country.
