Wanstead Park swan volunteer publishes pen and cob love story


A volunteer who helps to look after Wanstead Park’s swans has published a love story about a pair in Hampstead.

There’s Something About Wallace follows the lockdown romance of Mrs Newbie and Wallace. The couple met at The Swan Sanctuary last year and, after rejecting suitors for years, something about Wallace caught Mrs Newbie’s eye! Our book follows the highs and lows of 2020, including the arrival of seven cygnets,” said Louisa Green, who created the book with illustrator and author Dee McLean.

Copies are £12.50, which includes postage, and 50% from each sale will go directly to The Swan Sanctuary. Email to order.
