The idea for this story began with two characters called 'Yes' and 'No'. They are two mischievous squirrels who confuse everyone by saying one thing, but meaning another. The script for their scene actually took me ages to write! Apart from Christmas Magic, this story is our most epic and it includes extremely detailed Sound FX. The score has many sections to it and Adie added a little twist in the music at the end which I really love. One of the things that makes our audio stories special from others you may have heard, is the strong themed original classical music behind the narration. Unlike other audio books, the music continues throughout and is an essential part of the stories. However, in this story we took out the music in the Ice Hockey scene which makes it different from the others.

But somehow she makes her own way there and has a wonderful adventure.

Kids Corner

As our Story Time began to grow popular, so did our collection of wonderful children's artwork. Adie and I came up with the idea of having a Kids Corner on our website so we could post all of their drawings and make them a part of our creative world forever. This made their parents very excited. Teachers have told me that Music Audio Stories drawings are the most talked about drawings the children do. For at least that week anyway! 😊 To see more drawings from nurseries, schools and community events visit our Facebook Gallery.
