original and free children's stories
written and illustrated by

Grandad

I am a genuine Grandad in the U.K. 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.
