Ian wrote The Crush Series books many years ago, along with hundreds of poems, both to keep his 4 young children happy and occupied on family holidays, as well as to be able to discuss and explain the circle of life. As Ian’s career in surveying grew, as did his children, and so his love of writing took a back seat in his life. The tragic death of Ian’s son Robert at the age of 27 led to him dusting off the draft of his books and getting them published as The Crush Series. He also established a charitable foundation in his son’s name.
A group of hungry creatures are searching for their dinner in this Arctic-set picture book, and none of them get it. That might sound disappointing, but from the point of view of the plankton, almost eaten by the sprats, or the sprats, narrowly avoiding the bigger fish, who just escapes the penguin, who in turn avoids the polar bear … well, things look different. Written in rhyme and with gentle illustrations by Silke Diehl this makes a fun bedtime story. Added extras include the Polar Bear’s Song.
