Four Great Stories and So Much More
About the Book
This book was specifically structured in a question and answer format that appeals to youngsters with a myriad of interests, a thirst for knowledge, unbridled curiosity, a wild imagination, and an interest in exploring the application of mixed media in the colourful illustrations. Gwen has included a plethora of factual information, a fantasy narrative, a new version of a much beloved fable, and Felix Finkbeiner’s story, all in the same book. It is Gwen’s ardent wish that youngsters and their parents who read this book will be inspired by Felix, who at the age of nine, already embodied the most admirable of qualities that we want our children to emulate and champion in the world today.
