Local business woman, Maureen Nathan, decided to write a simple story book, “The Story of Money”, for her grand-daughter after observing a gap in the knowledge of people around her about what money is and how it evolved. From that humble beginning, a new range of educational children's books has been launched.

The stories are brought to vibrant life by Moruya cartoonist, Dylan Chambers.

Wise T. Owl is the narrator and leading character of the trio of books about Money, Trust and Rules. Stories of Boundaries, Invasion and Spending will follow shortly. Many more real life topics and themes are in the pipeline.

After an initial launch in Richelieu, France (Maureen's second home), the books have begun to find their way into libraries, classrooms and homes. Responses go far beyond initial expectations.

Ideally suited to primary readers (6 to 12 years) the books are also enjoyed by tiny tots, teens and adults. Parents and teachers have used the books as tools that promote engagement and discussion of sometimes difficult topics. They report the books to be invaluable tools to help promote independent thinking and further research.

The story lines dovetail across curriculum from history and economics to ethics, society and culture - at the same time as holding children's attention with the boldly humorous and sometimes satirical illustrations.
