original and free children's stories
written and illustrated by

Grandad

I am a real genuine Grandad and I love writing stories for my grandchildren.

As well as for all children and adults who allow the child within them, escape and be free. My stories are full of fun and adventure and open the door to many new worlds. All my stories are free, original, written and illustrated by me and also in large print too.

I believe something magical happens, when you read a good story and it is an unique bundle of portable magic and full of unknown treasure. Stories are an inseparable part of our lives and I strongly believe that a child who reads, will be an adult who thinks and I never forget our children are our future.

The End for Now

We read to know that we are not alone and remember that stories may be the only true magic.

Grandad's Blog

Information on my forthcoming stories and your lovely comments.

Bullying is Never Clever

Bullying is a very cowardly thing to do, it is not clever and although it may make you look big to your friends because they may be laughing and joking about it, they are also doing that out of fear. Do you really want to be known for someone who does cowardly things and picks on other people?

If you are bullying someone you really need to stop it NOW . What you are doing is nasty and unkind. You may not even realise how much you are upsetting the person or persons you are picking on. How would you feel if someone was bullying you? How would you feel if you imagine yourself one day as a parent and your little boy/girl said they were being bullied?
