Creating Daisy and Ted's Awesome Adventures
Alex says many of the ideas for the book came from her experiences with her own children:
“Rainy Saturday afternoons in our house are frequently spent making interstellar time travelling machines out of cardboard boxes, pirate cutlasses out of rolled up bits of paper and complete suits of armour out of bubble wrap. I tried to instil in the hero, Daisy, the same values I have endeavoured to teach my children: she is patient, kind and helpful, brave, confident and independent."
We hope Daisy and Ted’s Awesome Adventures is a source of support for deaf children and encourages their hearing friends to be more deaf aware, but, ultimately, it’s a fun adventure story for any child to enjoy.
