Patty Farrin has announced the release of her first children’s book, “The Teacup Café.”

Published by Maine Author’s Publishing in Thomaston, the book welcomes you to

step inside a vintage camper to see and smell the freshly-baked cupcakes and fragrant tea. While characters Amy and her mom are enjoying a tea party together, something magical happens that changes Amy’s perspective forever. With her mother’s love and guidance a powerful life lesson is learned. Based on a true story, this book is appropriate for all ages.

Farrin is the owner of Blue Willow Tea Room in Randolph. She also owns the vintage camper that is the setting for the book, and takes it along to book-signing events so children can actually see the little café.

The illustrator for the book is Hilary Davis, owner of Scrummy Afters Candy Shop in Hallowell.

The books are for sale at The Blue Willow Tea Room and also Scrummy Afters Candy Shop, Amazon and Maine Authors Publishing.

Upcoming book signings will be at The Maine Lobster Festival, held in Rockland Aug. 1-5, and at The Common Ground Fair, held in Unity Sept. 21-23.
