About the author:

There is nothing in the world that Itzik loves more than spending time with his family. Whether they are reading books, watching movies, listening to music, or just talking and learning from each other, there is no more cherished time of day than when he is surrounded by his wife and three kids. Because of his love for his children, and in order to help other people share quality time with their families, he finally decided to shirk his 9 to 5--more often 9 to 9—job and dust off his writing gloves in the hope that many more families will be able to connect in the same way that his now can.

'Fifo Tales: Fifo and the Mocking Teo' by Doery S. Andrea

The purpose of "Fifo Tales" is that by developing emotional intelligence I want to help the future generation stand up against everyday difficulties with the help of the morals of the tales and encourage children to develop healthy self-confidence and an optimistic way of thinking.

My tales make it possible for the children to process their unconscious anxiety and vent tension. This ability will help them to solve their problems when they grow up.

With Fifo’s tales, my purpose is to make a series of several books. The title of the first part is ‘Fifo and the Mocking Teo’.

During his several adventures Fifo, the chick boy, learns how to fight with everyday difficulties at the kindergarten.

In this tale he moves into a huge city with his parents and younger sister, Fifina. In his new kindergarten he has to face an unexpected situation. He gets acquainted with Teo, the nasty hedgehog boy, who is always mocking and excluding him.

Fifo’s desire is to feel good at the kindergarten and make new friends. He would like to play with Teo and wants to be his friend. He tries to be kind to him, but Teo behaves dismissively and excludes Fifo with his mocking behaviour.

His mother helps him in a clever way to solve this difficult situation...

Charming characters and scenes make Fifo’s tales colorful and fun to follow.

With love,
Doery S. Andrea
