Grandpa just loves being asked by his grandchildren to tell them a story. This time he tells a tale about two boys who had their day turned upside down when they accidently ventured past the home of two witches. As the story progresses it becomes clear that beauty is something that is in the eye of the beholder and that in the end, what is important is not how we look, but how we treat others. The key message of this book is that the way we conduct ourselves is what determines whether we are considered beautiful or ugly by others. The events that take place are also quite funny. The food that Leyton is given to eat will have you licking your lips and rushing to the kitchen to prepare a similar meal. The drink, that he is given is one to die for. This book is suitable to be read to children, not quite of reading age and to be read by young children, including older children aged up to 99 years and beyond. Michael De Leo (grandpa)

Michael De Leo (grandpa) I was born in Italy and have been in Australia since I was 9 years old. I am a granddad - “nonno” in Italian. I have four grandchildren, two girls and two boys. Whilst my grandchildren were growing up I was fortunate in having had the opportunity to spend a considerable amount of time with them. I played games with them, talked down to their level (my wife jokes that I talked UP to their level) and they made sure that I really never grew up. I took them to movies, picnics, camping, museums, zoo, library and anywhere else which was going to be fun for them and of some educational value. I especially enjoyed making up stories to tell my grandchildren throughout their toddler years and beyond. Most of the times that they came to visit, which was often, they would come to me and say "Nonno, please tell us a story". Of course, I didn't need much encouragement and sat them around me to listen to whatever I was able to come up with on the spur of the moment. Not long ago my youngest grandson was asked by his school teacher to write about someone who had a positive influence in shaping his life. To later find out that he wrote about me is something that will remain as one of, if not the greatest, achievement of my life. My grandchildren have now grown up and have sadly long gone past the children stories stage, but sometimes I overhear them reminisce about the stories that I had told them. On a number of occasions they have said to me; "Nonno, why don't you write children's stories and sell them over the Internet?" After several years of toying with the idea - here I am! I hope that you, your children and grandchildren, enjoy these stories as much as my grandchildren enjoyed the stories that I told them.
