The book is written in easy to read text for both a young reader and parent to enjoy together with nice short chapters. Excellent illustrations at the beginning of each chapter bring this fun story to life.
The style of writing and cute pictures took me back to my childhood and the books I used to read with my parents and I am sure once these stories are discovered they will be cherished and shared by families and passed down to generation after generation.
I feel that some of the natural interactions between family and friends are gradually eroding, if not already completely worn away for some. And I was reminded of a C.S.Lewis quotation -
“A children's story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children's story in the slightest.”
It also feels like the simple joy of laughing or crying among family and friends is being replaced by beeps, bops and demands to ‘add new features’ or ‘why doesn’t this work?’ or ‘who’s hogging the Wi-Fi?’.
So I set out to create a fun and exciting series of children’s short stories, with lots of adventure and splashes of humor, all paced to hold children’s attention whether reading or listening… at least that’s my hope!
Stories that will delight both boys and girls, the young and old, and, of course, moms and dads! Tales that allow a return to simpler values, kid-like imagination for both children and adults and, I sincerely hope, bring families closer together.
