The story of Mr Pinklenose began with my late Father who created this character and whose stories he told to my sister, my brother and I when we were young children. There were no pictures or drawings of this magical and endearing little man. There was no social media, no twitter no U-Tube, no cartoons or written stories just us children using our imaginations. Later as we had children, my Dad kept Mr Pinklenose alive by telling such stories to his Grandchildren – all of us using our imagination as to what he looked like not to mention the fairies he was responsible for! I have kept his legacy going by telling stories to my Grandchildren and when I had to take early retirement due to ill health I decided that I wanted to share these stories with everyone else – not least to give my children and grandchildren something tangible to remember me by. So I hope when the book is printed and sent out next week (- that those of you who have chosen to try the first Mr Pinklenose adventure will appreciate that this has been a journey of 54 years from first telling to colourful, picture story book. I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did making Mr Pinklenose come alive for both myself and my family – and if you are still with me remember this is just the start of the adventure!
Thanks for reading
