Our Mimi and The Mountain Dragon windows!

Main entrance to our bookshop and cafe, with Helen at work
This year we were honoured to have super talented author/illustrator and friend of Mainstreet, Helen Stephens paint all five of our front windows. She has transformed our shop front into the wintry Alpine world of her new book, Mimi and the Mountain Dragon, her latest collaboration with another firm friend of Mainstreet, Michael MorpurgoClick the link below for more…

The windows in progress…

We were lucky enough to have Helen launch Mainstreet Christmas at our annual Christmas shopping night last week, where she signed copies of Mimi and the Mountain Dragon (limited numbers still available in the shop…!) Many mince pies, glasses of champagne and festive gifts, left with lots of happy customers, so a big THANK YOU to Helen for making our windows so magical!
“As soon as the bells stop ringing, I’m going to carry you home to your mother, back up to the Mountain Dragon’s castle . . . 
In her castle lair high in the mountains of Switzerland lives a terrible dragon. In the village below lives a little girl called Mimi. When she finds a baby dragon in the woodshed, she makes a brave decision that will bring joy and peace to the village for ever.
