This little book is designed to be your personal companion through the first months of learning to ring church bells. It was written primarily for use by 9-14 year old recruits at Sherbourne, where Pam had for some years struggled with the problem of putting over the theoretical side of ringing, when most elementary books were aimed at adults and are just a mite solid and boring.
The first edition, back in 1982, was just photocopied onto foolscap paper. By 1985 it was re-written onto A4 paper with minor additions and amendments making it suitable for young people from 9 to 90!
When Peter Sotheran of Redcar, (the friendly Bell ringers printer) printed the first 2500 they were sold out in three weeks. At last count in 2016 some 200,000 books had been purchased (75% being One Per Learner) plus 100,000 leaflets and 20,000 badges.
