Guest Blog this week – Children’s Author, Don Jones


I’m Don Jones and I have been writing for many years. In 2002 I was a reading helper at a village school and I started to write short stories for my class. These were well-liked and I was asked to write more, some of which were commissioned by the Head teacher.
In 2005 I moved to Devon and joined a writers group and was encouraged to have some of my stories published. The result was Bookworms and other Stories a beautifully illustrated collection of humorous short stories aimed at the six to tens, but which has proved to be equally popular with grown ups, either to read to children or simply for their own enjoyment.
Stories include When the Tooth Fairy Went on Strike, which introduced such characters as the Nappy Fairy and the Junk Food Fairy; Ring, Ring, which is a day in the life of Nursery Rhyme Police Station, where problems include lost sheep, and Rock-a-by Baby falling out of a tree; and Stinky-Tinkie Winkie where poor little Freddie has to change his baby sister’s nappy.
Bookworms and other Stories is available on line through Amazon, WH Smith, Waterstones and Blackwells at the modest price of £5.99 or less.

  1. I’ve read these stories and you don’t have to be a child to enjoy them. Brilliant – Don has a real talent for storytelling and keeping the reader thoroughly entertained. I have heard him read some of them out loud, too, and if you can imagine Alan Bennett reading them then that’s pretty close to what you get.
