COVENTRY father and son duo Aaron and Oscar Ashmore have put their talents together to release their latest children’s book exploring the city’s history.

‘The Time Travelling Coventry Taxi: Leofric’s Revenge’ is the latest book in the series and follows a journey back in time to meet famous historic city figures including Delia Derbyshire, Ira Aldridge and Muriel Hind.

The book, illustrated by local artist Lizzie Ryan, follows Oscar and his resourceful brother Caleb who once again stumble upon the Time Travelling Taxi and are hurled into the heart of Coventry’s past, present and future.

The boys embark on a mission to restore the city’s history to its rightful course.

Aaron and Coventry Building Society have teamed up to help distribute 1,000 copies of ‘The Time Travelling Coventry Taxi: Leofric’s Revenge’ to schools.

Aaron, who has donated over 8,000 copies of his Coventry books to local primary schools, said: “Collaborating with Oscar on these books has been an incredible journey.

“Leofric’s Revenge’ allowed us to delve even deeper into Coventry’s history, and working side by side has been a rewarding experience that has brought us even closer together.”

Oscar added: “Writing this book with my Dad has been so much fun.

“I loved imagining the adventures and I can’t wait for readers to join us in our latest journey through time.

“It’s awesome to see our ideas become a real book.”
