Interview with P.S. Menconi, author of Oriental Badtime Tales, a beautiful collection of 15 unpublished fairy tales: a magical journey into millenary oriental culture. Available on Amazon.
Venice – April 2022 – After several children’s books, a collection of oriental fairy tales is published.
How did this idea come about?
P.S.M .: The millenary oriental culture has always fascinated me and, since I was a boy, I have practiced martial arts for a long time. When my son was a little child, I liked to read him fairy tales for bedtime. I have always thought that reading him fairy tales was a special way to spend precious time with him. And so, tired of always telling classic fairy tales, I had started to invent some stories that, over time, I had written and put in a drawer. Then the years passed until I reopened the drawer and collected them in a book.
Tell us about the Oriental Badtime Tales.
P.S.M .: Oriental Badtime Tales is a collection of 15 unpublished stories full of teachings and illustrations that will enchant children, taking them into the magical world of fairy tales.
The idea was born with the aim of bringing to the children that culture so rich in teachings.
Oriental Badtime Tales are like some small precious chests with inside the richness of a millenary wisdom that is revealed through the adventures, the courage, the emotions and the generosity of the protagonists stories.
Each fairy tale has a moral and offers a small lesson. I hope, they can give some moments of joy and serenity to adults and children.
Let’s talk about the future.
P.S.M .: I am already working on new fairy tales dedicated to music, full of engaging adventures and that will give to the readers, young and old, deep emotions, believe me! To return to the present and to the Oriental Badtime Tales, I wish everyone a good read!
Oriental Badtime Tales is available on Amazon.
