There is something quite special about being an author of a book. Especially a children’s book author, knowing that your stories could be inspiring children across the country to go on adventures, encourage friendship and teamwork as well as offer that warm fuzzy feeling that comes from a good story.
Picking a book up from the bookshelf to sit down to read it is wonderful, however, the storyline has already been devised. The characters, where they will go, who with and what they need to find etc is all laid out on the pages.
However, what if you wanted to set the finer details of the story and then listen to see how it all works out? Now you can with the Lunii My Fabulous Storyteller. A handheld device that whilst might look small in size, contains big adventures and stories.

Lunii My Fabulous Storyteller // Boo Roo and Tigger Too’s thoughts…
We have been using the Lunii My Fabulous Storyteller with Tigger for the past few weeks and we are loving it. Although he is a confident reader, he can at times be reluctant to sit down and read for some quiet time. The Lunii has enabled him to create his own story creations before sitting down to listen to them unfold. Whether he is snuggled up in bed, laying in the bath or sitting in the back of the car whilst we are travelling.
As a parent, I love that this gives him the control over what features within the story he is about to listen to. As well as the additional story packs that are available mean that I can easily add another when he wants to mix things up a little. The Lunii is a small portable device but holds so much value, a great way to add an extra slice of storytime into children’s lives.
