WHO IS UNCLEBEARSKIN?
One of my earliest memories from childhood is being cuddled up in bed with my little sister and baby brother, telling them stories of the Fairy Queen (who, lucky for them, was me!) who ruled supreme over the Fairy Kingdom. I understood the power of words from an early age, and when my daughter and four sons were born, everything I wanted to teach them I put into a story.
Now that my children are grown up, I thankfully have grandchildren who haven’t heard all my stories. The difference is that now I have the time to write them down, so my great, great, great grandchildren will still hear my voice and hopefully it will make them smile.
The notion of parents and children connecting through storytelling is my constant inspiration for creating books. There is nothing more comforting for a child than the sound of a parent’s voice, being totally present together while exploring the pages of a book.
Our desire at Unclebearskin is to encourage these shared moments with our children, where parent and child alike can discover a world of possibilities through the magic and sheer joy of imagination. Working with talented artists to bring to life the characters in each of our stories, our books are designed to be enjoyed for many, many years as treasured keepsakes. We hope you love them as much as we do!
