I\'ve just pledged £30 as a Christmas present from my mother - who needs hankies or bath salts when you can have new Topsy and Tim books printed as a present?

I\'ve just added £50 collected from participants at the Cornish Carol Service at St Ive. I hope others can collect money from their friends and neighbours to add to their pledge. Many people without internet access might like to pledge via a friend.

I absolutely loved T&T as a child with their fun stories and colourful pictures. What brilliant stories to use to introduce children to their language. Bryntin Topsy ha Tim.

Meur ras for your comment, agandolly. It is great to hear how useful the books will be for families like yours - a HUGE thank you for your support and fingers crossed that we will be successful, so your toddlers have exciting books to look at!

Oh, PLEASE, help this to be a success. I\'ve got toddlers of 3 and 5 and there\'s nothing bright, modern and attractive in Cornish that I can sit and read to them. Apart from Ple\'ma Spot, maybe, but there\'s only so many times you can read the same book. These will be a big plus. I can\'t wait to get my hands on them.
