INVENTOR and entrepreneur Roark McMaster is getting ready to launch a series of children’s books at the relaunch of Portsmouth Central Library on Sunday.
The Emsworth-based businessman has also announced that his company, Just Imagine, is about to put pen to paper on a deal with a Chinese publisher for four more books.
Mr McMaster shot to fame for a series of failed inventions that were panned by the Dragons on TV’s Dragons’ Den – including a device to keep the end of a cucumber moist.
The Q-Top business failed, as did his business to launch urbanwear.
But Just Imagine, which he set up in 2006 to bring innovations to market, is going from strength to strength.
Sunday sees the relaunch of the library since it was damaged by vandals in August last year.
At 11.30am Just Imagine will launch the books Murphy and the Magic Passport, Tummy Rumble Time, Dance of the Honey Bees, Saving Blue Fish, and Meet Big Tooth.
Three more books will be launched in August.
