Charlestown ice cream supremo Victoria Anstey has published her first book. 

The owner and chief ice cream maker at the Tall Ships Creamery has authored The Ice Cream Moppets, a collection of eight thrilling stories for children. 

She signed her first copies in the shop on Friday, when the book was released for sale in bookshops worldwide. 

The captivating tales follow the antics of a group of mischievous creatures who appear in the creamery as night-time falls, embarking upon wondrous adventures. 

With every story ending on a tantalising cliffhanger, you’ll find yourself yearning to dive into the next enchanting instalment.
