Where’s Basil? – At home getting ready for his trip to Switzerland – Brown Bear’s Big Day Out

Brown Bear’s Big Day Out is a story about a bear in a zoo that puts on a disguise so that he can escape and visit a funfair called Dizzyland. It’s about looking at people in depth and not being afraid because they look different from you. So Basil looks like a man when disguised but is still the same friendly and hero bear in this case once his disguise slips.

The story contains illustrations throughout the text. These are then repeated at the back of the printed book so that younger children can colour them in. One of them can be seen below.

Basil packing his bag for his trip with his bear essentials. 1st August 2012.

The book is available globally from Amazon in both printed and ebook formats. This is the .co.uk link, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Brown-Bears-Big-Day-Adventures/dp/1980868859/, and this is for .com, https://www.amazon.com/Brown-Bears-Big-Day-Out-ebook/dp/B086DSF5N7/.

Tristan and the chameleons – an illustration from Clever Dad and the Pirate Ship

Tristan is seen here trying to persuade the group of chameleons to help disguise the elephant to make him look like a fire breathing dragon. Why? To scare away the pirates digging up the island of Polysnezzia of course. The pirates are digging so many holes that the island might sink.

This story is the first in my Clever Dad series and was followed by Clever Dad and the Space Rocket. There are illustrations throughout the text of Pirate Ship that are repeated at the back in the printed book version for younger children to colour in.

The printed and ebook versions are available globally from Amazon. This is the .co.uk link, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Clever-Pirate-Ship-Paul-No%C3%ABl/dp/1980869561/ and this is the .com link https://www.amazon.com/Clever-Pirate-Ship-Paul-No%C3%ABl-ebook/dp/B08BPLDLL6/ for example.

The idea for a dragon – an illustration from Clever Dad and the Pirate Ship

Clever Dad and the Pirate Ship is the first Clever Dad adventure story that I wrote where Tristan’s father builds him some very special toys.

In this story, Tristan arrives at the island of Polysnezzia only to find that there are some real rough pirates digging up the island looking for treasure. They are not to easily be scared but maybe they would be if they saw a dragon. The problem is nobody really believes in dragons especially not some rough, tough pirates. The book is illustrated throughout the text and these are repeated at the back of the printed book for younger readers to colour in. The book is also available in ebook format.

The story is available globally from Amazon on different sites. These are the links to .co.uk, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Clever-Pirate-Ship-Paul-No%C3%ABl/dp/1980869561/, and .com, https://www.amazon.com/Clever-Pirate-Ship-Paul-No%C3%ABl-ebook/dp/B08BPLDLL6/.

Clever Dad and the submarine – new story – cover artwork

This is the brilliant cover art work for the third story in my Clever Dad series created by Gerry Newton. In this installment, as you can imagine, Tristan has an adventure in a submarine. This time however he is joined by his brother William. The story is an adventure as always and in this third book I cover a number of environmental issues for young readers.

In the meantime here are some details about the first book, Clever Dad and the Pirate Ship.

Tristan’s father builds him a pirate ship on the promise that he will be a good pirate. He sets sail and discovers that he needs to go to Polysneezia because some really bad pirates are digging the whole island up looking for money. Can he persuade them to leave before they cause the island to sink? Clever Dad and the Pirate Ship is Tristan’s first adventure.

The book is available from Amazon as a printed version or as an ebook. There are illustrations throughout the story and in the printed book they are repeated at the end so that they can be coloured in.

The story is available globally from Amazon. This is the .co.uk link, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Clever-Pirate-Ship-Paul-No%C3%ABl/dp/1980869561/, and this is the .com link, https://www.amazon.com/Clever-Pirate-Ship-Paul-No%C3%ABl-ebook/dp/B08BPLDLL6/.

Clever Dad and the Space Rocket, the second story, is also available on Amazon.
