Mr Derrick, a friend of one of my father’s tenants swayed into my room one morning and met me writing stories. He took my first ever published storybook: the monkey with seven tails, read it and said it was very interesting.
He then told me that his family from the United Kingdom are storytellers. Mr Derrick took my pen and drafted three stories. They include The Greedy Python; the proud rabbit & the tortoise; and the three black cats and the fox.
One lesson learned from Mr Derrick that day was that he would always write the morals from every story.
