Hello, and Welcome to Friendly Fables

Published over 1 year ago by Alexis Alexander

There is so much to say in our first blog post, but first of all - welcome!

Welcome moms and dads, welcome grandparents, welcome aunts, uncles, teachers, friends and book lovers of all ages. We’re so glad you’re here, and we can’t wait to share our story (and stories) with you.

Friendly Fables is a children’s book series that was created from a father’s love. Our author, Alexis Alexander, was born and raised in Ajax, Ontario. Alexis grew up in a family of happy bookworms and learned a love of reading at a young age. That love of reading soon developed into a love of writing stories - tales of adventure, kindness, family and friendship. The type of stories that sing with childhood hopes and dreams, and come straight from the heart.

When Alexis grew up, he met a book-loving girl from Toronto and fell in love. They got married by a lake and moved into a house outside of the city. Today, Alexis and his wife, Caitlin, have two fur-babies, Daizy and Zoey, and two human babies, Annie and Peter - the inspiration behind Friendly Fables and the characters in each book!

Friendly Fables is more than a book series - these are stories that kids can enjoy, understand and relate to as they learn and grow. They provide comfort as well as entertainment, and speak to kids in a way that’s both whimsical and age-appropriate. For each milestone in a child’s life, we have a story that helps guide them through. Sometimes it’s exciting, like a holiday celebration or a visit from the tooth fairy, and other times it’s a challenge, such as a visit to the hospital. No matter what the event, these stories are told joyfully and illustrated with bright, beautiful imagery.

Books are magic, and when kids learn to love them, they have a friend for life. Whether they’re read in a classroom or as a bedtime story at home, books stimulate a love of learning that never goes away (just ask Alexis). But there’s another thing kids love: getting mail! This is why we’ve designed Friendly Fables as a subscription service. Parents, grandparents and others can order a monthly delivery of a new Friendly Fables story. Kids will delight in receiving a brand new, physical book in the mail each month - a special gift to spark imagination, engage in learning and encourage quality time as a family.

We are thrilled that you’re here with us, and hope you’ll join our Friendly Fables journey.

Happy reading and Friendly Fables to all!
