'The story of the loveliest note of all'

Baptist minister and children’s author Richard Littledale has teamed up with Tommy’s this Christmas to release a charming audiobook

The Note

The Note
is a story of hope and never ending love, and was released on iTunes and all other digital platforms on Friday 18 December.

Proceeds from the audiobook will benefit Tommy’s Charity, which funds medical research into the causes of miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth, and provides advice and support for all parents-to-be to help them have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. 

The Note does not approach the subject of loss directly, says Richard, minister of Teddington Baptist Church, but the story will resonate on many levels.

'There is something people don’t know about notes, even though it’s all around them, all the time.... every note goes on forever, once it’s been played or sung, it stays out there hidden in the
air until it’s needed again.

'This is the story of the loveliest note of all!'

He adds, 'All too often the note of a child’s voice is silenced far far too soon, neonatal death is the source of untold anguish, a symphony cut short at the first note.

'Miscarriage or still birth are a tune whose first note is never, ever played.'

The Note is the latest children's book for Richard. In recent years he has authored “The Littlest Star” and “Little Owl”.

The Note will be released on iTunes and all other digital platforms on Friday, 18 December, price 99p.
