Storytelling Starters ~ Tough times

Roses 3It’s been a tough week for us here this week. On Friday a week ago, my brother-in-law, Andrew, had to go into hospital. He’d been having a very hard time health-wise over the last weeks and months and he  died late in the evening on Wednesday. In many ways, it was a merciful release for him but it’s a big loss for us and his friends. 

So please bear with me for not writing any more until next week. At that point, I’ll hope to say a bit about a new book called Brunt Boggart which is by the writer and poet David Greygoose. I’ve been sent it for review in The School Librarian and although it’s intended for teenagers, I think it deserves a good deal of attention from a wider age-range and especially from a storytelling point of view. Both because of its content and the beauty of the writing, it has given me a lot of comfort during the course of this week and I’m very grateful to it for that.
