The Story of a Children’s Book

When the author flew to Ghana in February 1971, to take up a teaching post at the University of Science and Technology, Kumasi, his three sons were 9 years, 6 years and 3 months old. As the years passed, one by one the boys left to attend boarding school in England and the father took to writing each a letter every Sunday morning. As often as possible, he tried to send a story with the letter and these proved popular not only with his sons but with their school mates. When the stories were sent recorded on tape, the tapes were misappropriated. Other parents urged the publication of the stories but the effort was postponed because suitable illustrations were not available. Now that grandchildren have read the stories, they are to be published in the hope that their children and many others will also enjoy them.
