We are also on an amazing adventure together bringing our dreams of writing children’s books to reality. We’re Paul and Leanne, a normal-ish married couple with two young children. Over the years we’ve read our fair share of kiddie’s books, some which have amused us, some which have moved us and some which didn’t quite make the bookshelf. Our two little cherubs definitely have their favourites, but one thing is for sure, they love being read to. They love hearing stories, listening to Mummy and Daddy’s silly voices and looking at the pictures. We love watching them and seeing the stories unfold on their little faces.
We’ve always been full of ideas ourselves and are constantly making up stories for our little ones. One sunny afternoon after a busy morning at Southend sea front we sat down for a family lunch. While the children pushed their food around their plate we began doodling on the back of a kid’s menu and between us we drew The Rainbow Tree. It wasn’t a masterpiece; we sketched it out using a cup of mismatched crayons that accompany you when you dine out with children. From there we decided it would be fantastic if it was a Magical Rainbow Tree that could take you to different places and send you on amazing adventures. Our excitement grew as we talked through our ideas and that very afternoon while the little ones ate their chicken nuggets and threw chips at each other Minnie and Maxie Moo were born.
We hope you enjoy reading our books to your children as much as we’ve enjoyed writing them.
