So far, Tikaboo Tales consists of seven full-colour children's books that are based on little creatures I have known and taken care of (except for the bear!). Some of these characters initially feel lost or marginalised but eventually fulfil their true potential and find their own niche in life. Others carry on being themselves no matter what while having a positive affect on those around them and even saving the day! Although their paths may not always seem clear, all they needed was inner trust and the courage to follow their very own trails.
My hope is that readers can identify with the tiny mouse, dogs, squirrels and bear so they themselves will be encouraged and inspired to celebrate their differences. Perhaps they will be reminded that all species are in need of much love and support, compassion and empathy - rather like the readers themselves!
I wrote, illustrated, designed, self-published and printed these works entirely in Ireland a
at a time when supporting homegrown industries couldn't be more important. What's more, the printing process in Ireland is environmentally sustainable!
