Nottingham service user, Jean Lacey, has had her second children’s book published, accompanied by her own amazing illustrations.
The talented author and artist has created the wonderful ‘Wiley the Fox’, which she hopes will be enjoyed by young boys and girls, like her grandchildren, as well as the parents and grandparents that get to read it alongside them.
In the opening synopsis of the book, it tells us about Jean as an author as well as the inspiration and hopes for the story, explaining that…
“She has three wonderful grandchildren, and her intention is to write children’s stories for each of them. All illustrations have been hand drawn by Jean in her book. Having already written ‘Georgina-Sue’s Hairy Scary Day’ for her granddaughter, this story is for her two growing young grandsons, JJ and Harvey.
It is her deep felt desire that you enjoy this book too and have many happy hours reading it to your children. The bonding that occurs between parent/guardian and their children, while reading to them from a physical book can often be overlooked in this digital, modern age of computer games and tablets. So, Jean hopes that this little story book will bring many happy times of closeness to adults and children alike.
Jean has a B.A. Hones degree in English studies from Nottingham University and is an accomplished artist in her own right. She has won awards and competitions with her artwork and short stories. This is her second published children’s story book and hopefully many more will follow.”
