Synopsis

Raven's Tale And Other Stories by Kenneth Steven

Kenneth Steven brings together the great tradition of storytelling and his own gentle Christian faith, assuring children of God's comforting presence - even in difficult situations. - Each story is a great read for children while also being underpinned by a moral point firmly rooted in the Christian faith. - The drawings, created by Katharine Wake, add a charming visual dimension to the clear and elegant prose. - The Raven's Tale and other stories may be read aloud to children of all ages. 'When the world was still quite young, a group of animals and birds lived together in a beautiful valley far away. There were high hills up above and sweet meadows running through the valley, and at the heart of everything was a great deep blue river that wound like a snake towards the sea.'

About the Author

Kenneth Steven

Kenneth Steven is a versatile Scottish author who finds much of his inspiration in the landscape and people of northern Scotland. Kenneth began writing at the age of 12 and his first novel was published when he was 16. He now writes for both adults and children, from fiction, poetry and picture books (including The Sea Mice and the Stars which was short-listed for the Royal Mail Scottish Children’s Book Awards) to handbooks on the art of crafting and publishing poetry.

Kenneth also writes for broadcast (he was awarded a Gold Sony Radio Award in 2006 for his programme on St Kilda) and his fluency in Norwegian enables him to work on translations (his translation of Lars Saabye Christensen’s The Half Brother saw him long-listed for the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize and short-listed for the international IMPAC Award). Kenneth particularly loves the freedom that writing provides: the finding and weaving of stories and the ability to create a new world. Kenneth frequently presents his work to adults and children. He also offers himself as Writer in Residence to schools and the wider community.
