Great Uncle Stanley

An illustrated book aimed at 4+ year olds. Children are often more attentive than we give them credit for. Parents aren’t. Kevin is a sensitive boy, who listens to his Mum but she, conversely, does not take any real notice of what he does. She prefers to concentrate her efforts in raising his awareness of the many dangers that surround him in his everyday life. The vehicle for this education by fear is ‘Great Uncle Stanley’, a distant and unseen relative whose careless behaviour resulted in a series of spectacular mishaps. The book follows these misadventures, with Kevin’s mental image of Great Uncle Stanley growing ever more dreadful through the cumulative effects of his various calamities.

Mum is oblivious of the impact her homilies are having on Kevin.

Eventually, Kevin’s mental picture of Great Uncle Stanley is as grotesque as can be. When his mother announces that Great Uncle Stanley has paid them an unexpected call, Kevin’s reaction is to run away screaming.... In the wake of Kevin’s frantic departure Great Uncle Stanley (who bears none of the imagined scars) turns to Kevin’s mother and warns her of the consequences of exaggerating life’s dangers … by doing the same to her.
