The book is entitled ‘When Beetroot turned red’ and was written by Mark Cook, who is a family friend of the garden centre owners. The book is beautifully illustrated by Neil Pollard.

When Beetroot turned red – book cover

It is a children’s story based on the much-loved Beetroot, The Rising Sun Nurseries cat, who sadly passed away last year, and fantasises about his reaction when uninvited guests break into the garden centre and knock over a tin of red paint.

The book is available from The Rising Sun Nurseries priced at £3.49 with all proceeds going to the RSPCA Crewe, Nantwich & District Branch.
