Author Spotlight: Robbie Cheadle (Winner for our Children’s Book Readathon)

Posted on Updated on


As part of our upcoming Children’s Book Readathon, we have a few fantastic authors and bloggers who are participating in the final week. Today I am highlighting a wonderful writing duo that I came across about a year ago. And the best part, Robbie and Michael Cheadle will be offering a FREE copy of one of their latest books as part of our Readathon the week of 8/24. More to come in the next week about how to get a copy. Let’s dive in to a fun overview about this adorable family of authors, illustrators, and chefs…

About Robbie and Michael Cheadle

Robbie Cheadle was born in London in the United Kingdom. Her father died when she was three months old and her mother immigrated to South Africa with her tiny baby girl. Robbie has lived in Johannesburg, George and Cape Town in South Africa and attended fourteen different schools. This gave her lots of opportunities to meet new people and learn lots of social skills as she was frequently “the new girl”.

Robbie is a qualified Chartered Accountant and specialises in corporate finance with a specific interest in listed entities and stock markets. Robbie has written a number of publications on listing equities and debt instruments in Africa and foreign direct investment into Africa.

Robbie is married to Terence Cheadle and they have two lovely boys, Gregory and Michael. Michael (aged 11) is the co-author of the Sir Chocolate series of books and attends school in Johannesburg. Gregory (aged 14) is an avid reader and assists Robbie and Michael with filming and editing their YouTube videos and editing their books. Robbie is also the author of the new Silly Willy series the first of which, Silly Willy goes to Cape Town, is now available. (See More Below)

Sir Chocolate and the sugar crystal caves story and cookbook:

Sir Chocolate and Lady Sweet journey to the sugar crystal caves to collect the sugar water they need to make their soda pop. To get to the Chocolate Chip Hills they must cross the Chocolate Mousse Swamp infested with alligator sours and a meringue ghost. When they arrive, they discover that the sugar crystals are melting, and something needs to be done to save them. Learn how to make some four fun creations out of biscuits and the sugar crystals too.


Silly Willy goes to Cape Town:

When the George family go on holiday to Cape Town, Cautious Craig cannot believe what he has to endure at the hands of his naughty and wilful younger brother, Silly Willy. Willy throws tantrums at the most embarrassing and inappropriate times, causes a commotion on the aeroplane and tries to steal a chameleon from Butterfly World. What is a poor older brother expected to do in these situations?


Coming in 2018

What was it like for children growing up in rural Suffolk during World War II?


Elsie and her family live in a small double story cottage in Bungay, Suffolk. Every night she lies awake listening anxiously for the sound of the German bomber planes. Often they come and the air raid siren sounds signaling that the family must leave their beds and venture out to the air raid shelter in the garden.

Despite, the war raging across the English channel, daily life must continue with its highlights, such as Christmas and the traditional Boxing Day fox hunt, and its scary moments when Elsie learns the stories of Jack Frost and the ghostly and terrifying Black Shuck that haunts the coastline and countryside of East Anglia.

Includes some authentic WWII recipes.

    Reblogged this on Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life and commented:
    James Cudney is holding a children’s Readathon at the end of August and he is showcasing some of the authors who will be involved. And today he features Robbie and Michael Cheadle with the Sir Chocolate series of stories and cookbooks. It looks like it is going to be a terrific event.
