I am extremely honoured to be able to share the work of fellow children’s author, Christine Corretti, here on my website. Christine is exceptionally talented. As well as authoring the delightful A Father’s Wish – the Tale of King Big Bear the Fat, the first book in the King Big Bear the Fat series, she has also created all the illustrations for the same, by hand.

Discover a unique world of fantasy, enchantment, beauty and learning for all ages in The Chronicles of King Big Bear. Here, you will meet a royal figure who is hundreds of years old, but who never grows old! The king will take you on a journey throughout history and even show you what his present day life is like. As you shall see, his realm is filled with riches, and he is blessed with many animal friends and family. It is no wonder that King Big Bear is called the Father of Nature, for he is deeply inspired by all things living and believes his duty is to protect and nurture life. He wishes you will do the same. Come in and explore the world of King Big Bear the Fat!
A Father’s Wish is an enchanting tale about conservation and the protection of wolves. It is filled with adorable animal characters, save one, and beautiful illustrations. King Big Bear the Fat, our hero, starts to feel something is missing in his otherwise perfect life. With a little inadvertent help from his sister, he soon realises just what this is, and goes on to adopt a very lovable wolf cub. Unfortunately things don’t quite turn out the way he hopes. I found myself needing to read on in the hope of a happy ending here.
I would recommend this book for children of all ages. Parents are sure to enjoy reading this to smaller children and those old enough to read it themselves will, no doubt, take great delight in it. Definitely a 5 star read!
