Engibear's Dream

2012 10 24 Engibear2Virginia and Jo

Thank you very much for guiding me on the wonderful journey of turning a family story into a children's picture book.

When my kids suggested that "we should turn this story into a book" I don't think I had any idea what I was getting into or what I was doing.

After early copies of the book were rejected it was fantastic to get your professional help.

The feel of the book, its cohesiveness, the text and the illustrations have all improved markedly with your reviews and advice.

I have learned so much and now realise how much more there is to learn.

Most importantly the whole process has been really enjoyable - I think I am hooked.

I am really looking forward working with you on my next book.

Best regards

Engibeer Korean

Cover of the Korean version of Engibear’s Dream.

The title translates as Chuck Chuck Bot which is a good name…

The name in image for Engibear sounds "chuck chuck bot". Chuck Chuck is korean Onomatopoeia meaning 'working well in sound order progressing the task in very positive forward way', seems originated from "chuck chuck bark sa", a common korean word to refer to a gadget guy (bark sa = a doctor/scientist)

And 'Bot' from Robot.
