I first started making up these stories to entertain my son, Ben who had a toy polar bear called Baby Julia. It wasn't until many years later that I committed them to paper and set them to verse. "Baby Julia" has now become Maisey Morley, named after a little white dog my son owned called Maisey. Ben is all grown up now and has recently had his own son who I hope gets as much enjoyment from these stories as his Dad did.
