Book Description

Robbie Stories – Children’s Stories of the Unexpected


Robbie’s dad is a forester, who thinks what he can’t see simply doesn’t exist! There are no miracles, no elves, no giants, no dwarves and, of course, no Forest Fairy, either. Everything has its simple explanation and the world runs like clockwork.

This way of thinking doesn’t make life very easy for him: his son, Robbie, often turns his down-to-earth world upside down. From time to time, strange things happen around the young boy. On one occasion, the garden suddenly turns into a lake, on another, Robbie, who is basically a skinny kid, rolls down the stairs, as fat as a pig.
To make things worse, if something unusual happens, Robbie immediately comes up with an explanation: A bag of walnuts disappeared? The elves have taken it as their commission. A corpulent guy pushes a wheelbarrow around in the yard? He is a giant who has come to collect his wage. But the rolling lake also deserves to be mentioned, which allegedly chased Robbie around – whose father, naturally, doesn’t see any trace of the lake later.
And when Robbie walks around the forest in a spirited conversation with his blanket, his father slowly but surely comes to the conclusion that the child should be seen by a doctor. Luckily, the Forest Fairy always has a brainstorm in these situations – or Robbie’s mom stands up from her armchair by the television to come to her son’s rescue.

About the Author

I was about the age of Robbie in my stories (i.e. about 8-10 years old) when I was often asked at school to tell a story. On these occasions I sat on a bench and began to talk, using my fantasy and ability to come up with a full story anytime, anywhere. What helped me do so was reading: I spent half of my childhood in libraries. I was especially fond of sci-fi (no longer now), so my first writing was a sci-fi adventure story, which I typed down using an "Erika" typewriter when I was thirteen. I still have it in my cupboard: not a skeleton but a nicely bound little book.:)

Finally for now, a few words about Robbie Stories: my first daughter Ann inspired me to find out a story about a kid who is not afraid in the forest even at night. Every evening she would ask me: "What happened to Robbie?" - and with no real other choice, I had to come up with something immediately. So, the Robbie Stories were born owing to her and her curiosity about the imaginary kid.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great short stories March 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My boys are really enjoying the stories. They are a quick read (about 10 minutes each). My only complaint is I find the endings are a little abrupt, like the author isn't quite sure what to do, but overall, they are a fun read.

More About the Author

Andreas Ceatos was born in 1974. He grew up in a tiny village and escaped to the library from the era's communist spirit. Since then he has been a fan of books: he continued his studies in a printing trade secondary school, where he had the opportunity to write as many books (into the computer) as he wanted and could muster. The trade he was studying was called "phototypesetter operator" :), which really sounds funny - and meant that texts are produced not manually, with the use of lead types, but with the assistance of a computer.

At college, he walked further on this path: he became a printing engineer. He later also graduated as an IT engineer, which provided him with the skills that came really handy when editing e-books.

Andreas Ceatos now lives in Budapest with his wife and four children. He loves to tell stories to his kids - mostly out of his own head, not from books, as he always reads aloud something completely different from what the book says. This habit finally drove him to writing a richly illustrated storybook entitled Robbie Stories. The next volume of these stories in on the way as his kids keep nagging him for new stories. Besides, a book for grownups is also in preparation.
