I wrote this book when I was suffering with root canal therapy problems! Suddenly, I thought about a colourful fun way to help people keep their teeth clean. For adults and children alike, my friends told me I should have released the book way before! Also, check out the audiobook version here.

Auntie Bertie Bans Christmas, Rescue Cats Save the Day
Here is another riveting read in the works that I am so eager to offer my readers! Auntie Bertie Bans Christmas, Rescue Cats Save the Day is unique with a colour therapy twist. This book will be available in time for Christmas.
Esther’s first book “Blue in the Tooth” was a big hit with my boys and was a great way for children to learn about dental hygiene and taking care of their teeth in a fun colourful way.
Auntie Bertie is an old lady with Victorian values and principles. She hates loud noise and noisy children, and when the circus comes to town, she is not at all amused! With her dog, Susan, she sets off to stop the circus. Rescue cats Molly and George from next door follow to see what havoc Auntie Bertie may cause. Will Auntie Bertie get her own way? She hopes so, but we hope not!
My boys and I enjoyed Auntie Bertie’s little adventure to the circus immensely. They couldn’t wait to see what happened next! They loved the animals in the story!
The mischievous cats Molly and George, Auntie’s cute little dog Susan and other memorable characters make this a fun story with meaning.”

“I have to admit I loved this book, and it’s not really aimed at 50 something grandmas! It is so much fun, I was laughing from page to page.
The main character is Auntie Bertie who is an old lady with Victorian values and principles. Now, if you are not familiar with Victorian values, they come from the time of Queen Victoria of England.
She was very stiff and proper! It was a time when children were believe to be seen and not heard. They weren’t allowed to speak unless spoken to and, just like home life, school was a very serious affair.
Auntie Bertie hates loud noise and noisy children, and when the circus comes to town, she is not at all amused! With her dog, Susan, she sets off to stop the circus. Following them are two rescue cats, Molly and George. They live next door and decide to follow to see what havoc Auntie Bertie causes. Of course, children love the circus so the reader is hoping she isn’t able to stop it.
The illustrations are bright and do a great job of bring the story to life. Your children will love to read along with Auntie Bertie’s adventure. This fun and engaging book will make a welcome addition to your library.”

“Trips to the dentist have got to be one of my most dreaded things ever. I don’t think there are that many people who actually enjoy visiting the dentist. But when it comes to taking kids to their six monthly appointments as a parent, it’s all about showing encouragement and enthusiasm. I really do hope my kids visit the dentist routinely and have good, healthy teeth.
I think children’s books are a superb way to engage the little ones in subjects they might otherwise find tedious. Good illustrations and fun tales are always a great way to teach and encourage little minds.
Blue in the Tooth is a cleverly illustrated book about looking after your teeth.
The illustrations are bright and colourful and eye catching. The story is about Johnnie, a little boy, and his teeth – ‘Blue’ a canine lower cutting tooth, it is wedged between Pearl, a molar chomping tooth and Onyx, an incisor tooth for biting and chewing.
The story has an educational angle to help children young and old realise how useful each individual tooth is in the chewing process and how they must be kept clean and healthy to prevent pain and discomfort, and obviously rotting and falling out!
I enjoyed this book. It is a real eye opener not only for the kids but also us grownups.
My boys were mesmerised by how awful the three teeth felt and looked after not being brushed by Johnnie and I think they have been put off eating hard boiled sweets for a while! My five-year-old seemed to brush his teeth extra well after reading this book!
My five-year-old loved the story.
A great book to reinforce the importance of brushing teeth. I think these books would be an asset to any dentist surgery and in schools when dental hygiene is the subject. A lovely educational read which I’m sure will stay with your little ones for a long time.”
