Beauty and perfection seems to be the buzzword in today�s world. If you�re beautiful, the whole world is open to you. Children learn this at an early age and imperfection is often frowned upon. Bubu Bear�s First Day of School is the first book to look into the world of imperfection. "Children can be cruel." We�ve heard this phrase many times and there is a world of truth in that one phrase. The main characters in the book, Bubu Bear, Gemma and Mitchi were all born with imperfections and find it hard to fit into their world but together they find the strength needed to face the world and learn to deal with their imperfections. This book takes us into a magical world of make-believe with a very real message aimed at the young readers.
I started writing when I was 15 years old. My inspiration was the woods behind my home. It was a magical place filled with tall trees, streams, ferns as huge as giant�s nests, ponds filled with coloured frogs and fish, and of course, mushrooms of every shape and colour. I spend many hours walking in there and captured pictures with my eyes and learned to paint with words. It was a world of make-believe. A wonderful world of fairies, elves and little people. Through those walks, I learned to create stories in my mind. At the age of 16, I published my first short story. It was a love story that made the cover page on a well-known women�s magazine. After that, I had a few more successes and I published a few more short stories and some newspaper articles. And then real life took over and I was off to university and writing took a back seat. Now I find myself face to face with my first love again, writing. This is my first venture into the world of books. I find myself back in the woods of my beloved childhood where my creative energy had free rein. Out of these thoughts emerged this story. It is a heartwarming tale that will capture the hearts and imagination of young readers and will make them think before they act thoughtlessly.
