The book is designed for children from ages three to eight, fi rst as a story to be read to them and later, a fairytale they can read all on their own.

The series of books will be based on the fi ve human values, love, peace, truth, non violence and right conduct.

Eileen and Joanne are both known for their philanthropic work in Waterford, having fundraised for an orphanage in India for many years, while Derek, who is a hypnotherapist and psycho therapist, has also set up his own charity SQ-Foundation (, which provides the means to bring shelter, clean water, food, medicine, clothing, education and more to people and animals in need around the world.

According to Joanne, the motivation behind the story is to get the message of love and human values out there.

“There is so much fi ghting and violence in front of kids these days, in all those video games and on television. We need to teach them to respect all living

things. Children can as easily be taught to love and respect each other”, she said.

Eileen agrees, saying “There is no difference between any of us, there is unity in diversity. We are all different but need to see each other as the same, no matter colour or creed. Everyone can relate to love, no matter what.”

The book, which will be available in the Book Centre and all good book shops, or, is priced at €10. There will also be a limited edition run with the book on CD and the authors will be signed at various libraries during June and July.
