Karin Celestine lives in a small house in Monmouth, Wales. In their garden there is a shed and in that shed is another world. The world of Celestine and the Hare. It is a world where weasels are ruled by King Norty, pandas ride space hoppers and bears read stories to each other.
“Karin Celestine’s wonderful, life-affirming books encourage us all to keep in touch with and to nurture the playfulness, exploration and hope of childhood. These are books that make the world a better place.” Zoe Toft, Playing by the Book
“My daughter (age 6) thoroughly enjoyed this book. She especially liked the photograph pictures as opposed to drawn illustrations as she felt it made the Panda more lifelike. It carries a lovely message throughout the story, highlighting how good it is to be nice to our friends. Furthermore, it encourages imaginative play such as riding the waves of the blue rug.
An added bonus is the illustrated instructions at the end of the book showing you how to make the boat that Panda sailed in. My little girl was greatly entertained by the characters in the story, appearing in the pictures, as photo’s, demonstrating how to build the boat.
This is a lovely book throughout, we definitely recommend – thank you Toppsta and Celestine.” via Toppsta
“Another beautiful story breathing light and love gently into children’s precious hearts. This story is about finding creative solutions and through kind action, helping to make dreams come true for others.” Brightstar Bedtime Stories
“We’ve never found a book so small that is so warm and so heartbreakingly profound. The creatures in the delightful little tribe have lives that revolve around the tiny pleasures that the world can offer – from having honey made by bees in the garden, to the joy of making a new friend and giving them the warm home that they need. With so many awful things in the world, and so much hate, these books are about the huge power of simple kindness. If the next generation grows up knowing these stories, then there is hope.” Kenilworth Books
