By J C Beswick
Key Themes: Children’s stories, fantasy for age’s 0 to 8.
On what I thought was my last admission to hospital during a writing activity I came up with the idea for a children’s story. I then wrote a series of stories to be suitable for children between the ages of 0 and 8 years. Giving that age bracket a simple but similar book to the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings.
However, in time I realised that the now compiled book of short stories could be the missing gap for the popular series of Harry Potter written by J K Rowling (reading age 8 – 15), and the J. R. R. Tolkien books mentioned above. For readers aged 15 and over.
The main character is Bibby who is a bib. He has four best friends, Mr Kettle, Egg Cup, Toasty and Mr Mug. They all live in a small town called Small Town. Which by the way is only one of the main places in People Land, the other two popular parts are Big Town and the People Land Park. There are also other lands for example Magic Land.
The book has thirty stories within and is illustrated. Ideally, this book is not a random story read for the first time reading.
