Once upon a time in Wibbleton there lived a lovely happy dog called Blue, he lived very happily with his family in a pretty country cottage. He was such a good dog he was allowed to go out on Walks all by himself.
Every day the gate was opened and off Blue went on another adventure. Across the field he’d run, through the long grass until he reached the big wooden gate that led to the land of adventures…
Everyday a new and exciting thing was about to happen…
This is the second one in the Adventures of Blue children’s book series. Blue goes on his usual walk across the fields on a very hot summer’s day.
On the other side of the field is a wide river he takes a dip in. All of a sudden he sees a farm with lots of different animals.
All he has to do is get across the river, but how?
Blue meets a lamb, a wild boar and a donkey and narrowly escapes the slightly unhinged farm dog, all with the aid of his magic collar.
Magic, friendship and fun are all in this happy adventure.
Targeted Age Group:
Well obviously there’s a rather large difference in what an adult and a child truly enjoys and understands. Although a lot of adults, I suspect, get just as much enjoyment out of some of the children’s books they read to their children but I can’t imagine a young child particularly getting to grips with War and Peace, as an example.
It is also different as you’re often having to attract the attention of an adult to buy the book for the child, yet once the child likes the book (if it’s a series) the buying decision slips into the child’s decisions making process.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Writing and being noticed isn’t easy, it never has been. However, I would suggest that this is probably the best time so far in the history of writing where almost anyone can get a book published.
Like all things in life, you’ll face pitfalls, hurdles and brick walls. It’s really up to you whether or not you get around them. Ultimately though, it is up to you.
Ronnie James wrote his first children’s book back in 2007. It wasn’t until he realised the potential to publish his books on Kindle that he started taking this seriously. The Adventures of Blue books are all dog stories inspired by the adventures and mischief his own Golden Retriever, Blue, used to get up to. Passionate about animals and bringing humour and smiles to people’s faces, Ronnie is truly passionate about putting only his very best into each carefully crafted book, not to mention the many hours that go into the wonderful illustrations by Pam Page.
The Adventures of Blue was first thought up several years ago whilst on holiday with family in Australia. I always send my new books to my much younger cousins in Sydney when they’re done. They really enjoy getting them, reading them and even critiquing them!
This is the second in the series so you could say each book is now inspiring the next.
