Author Biography

Christine is an ex-secretary, wife, mother, grandmother – and a farmer for more than 40 years, now living on and enjoying this end of her life on a retirement farm in beautiful Australia.

Her book covers say 'Author - Christine Larsen', and it's true… finally. Decades ago her written creations were shelved, in the belief that editors' rejections equalled no talent. Instead she concentrated on raising a family and meeting the various needs of farming, including successfully raising a myriad of animals, nine of which were kangaroos.
Christine has been rescuing something or someone ever since – on Lifeline telephones; adopting three 'special needs' children; in the community as a Careworker; animals from shelters; and from the Charity shops – abandoned small knitted folk.
Throughout these years she remained an avid reader and wannabe author, constantly 'moodling' about this – until, like a volcano, Christine's creative writing skills had no choice but to erupt, and here she is - working her fingers to the bone on her computer and having the time of her life.
Welcome to her world!

Ted Bear Esq. - His Photo Album (Small Folk Tales) by Christine Larsen is a pictorial delight. The book comprises short tales about Ted. It takes you through some of the important moments in Ted's life, and the things he holds dear such as his friends, and other special people. Ted describes memories that he cherishes and holds close to his heart. Whether it is Panda Bear's birthday or Jemima and Billow the Seal's visit, the book deals with feelings such as love, joy, happiness, etc.

The book targets a young audience so the story is very simple and understandable. The colorful pictures are eloquent and the description underneath each image tells the reader about the various characters. The pictorial journey is ideal to capture the attention of any child who is just getting into reading. Parents can also read this book to children.

It is not easy to convey a lot of emotions in a short book, but the author has managed to do just that. It's a book every child must read. They are introduced to many characters, rhyming words, and new vocabulary, making it educational as well as fun. The concept of loving and caring is also reiterated all through the book.
