Small Knitty Gritty Folk Tales by Christine Larsen

indie ebook cover

The Knitty Gritty Kids who feature in the second e-book in my 'Small Folk Tales' series are mostly 'Special Needs' children, rescued from the scrap heap of Life. I found each one deserted and discarded like so much rubbish, each begging for rescue, and I was putty in their hands. Some wore sad, tearful expressions, whilst others smiled bravely despite their desperate situation. All relied on an unexplainable magnetism to draw me to them, to be saved from . . . who knows what? I know I didn’t imagine that whispered "P-l-e-a-s-e save me."
Unloved – after the hundreds of loving stitches that created them. Unwanted and denied basic human and toy rights – after some dedicated knitter breathed life and souls into these wee beings. Here are just a few of the genuine stories of born-again small folk, and their triumph against all odds, and actual photos of them, safe and happy together now. Come and meet characters like Simon Scarecrow, and Harry the Painter, Gran and Grandpa, and the disabled kids, Sally and Sammy. These are the stories of the True Grit of the Knitty Gritty Kids.

About The Author...

indie author

Christine Larsen

      

Christine is an ex-secretary, wife, mother, grandmother – and a farmer for more than 40 years, now living on and enjoying this end of her life on a retirement farm in beautiful Australia.
Decades ago, in the belief that editors' rejections equalled no talent, she put her creations away on a back shelf to gather dust. Instead she concentrated on raising a family and meeting the various needs of farming, including successfully raising a myriad of animals, nine of which were kangaroos.
Christine has been rescuing something or someone ever since – on Lifeline telephones; adopting three 'special needs' children; in the community as a Careworker; animals from shelters; and from the Charity shops – abandoned small knitted folk.
Throughout these years she remained an avid reader and wannabe author, constantly 'moodling' about this – until, like a volcano, Christine's creative writing skills had no choice but to erupt, and here she is - working her fingers to the bone on her computer and having the time of her life.
