Boris and Betty
Lee has recently published his first book – Boris and Betty. This is a story about two bears spending too much time playing a computer game and not enjoying the outside world, this is until Mummy Bear gets involved with a plan to get her children back outside!
The book was inspired from seeing so many children on electronic gadgets (Ipads, Tablets etc) in a variety of different places. Lee finds it sad that he is witnessing the new generation where children don’t think they can play outside without needing a gadget for fun and he isn’t the only one who thinks that!
Lee was seeing children use electronic gadgets in restaurants, shops, the school playground and even whilst queueing in the line for rides when he took his family to Disneyland Paris! This frustrated him and inspired his story in the hopes that it will encourage children to enjoy being outside and having a good time without needing an electronic gadget, just like Lee did when he was a child.
It didn’t take a long time for Lee to plan and write the book. It took a couple of weeks for him to get the overall story figured out and then a further three weeks for it to be finalised after being sent to the publishers.
Lee has already planned a second book which he is hoping to publish in the near future. He also has a couple of ideas for completely different stories in mind which he will look to write about at some point in the future.
