“It is my privilege and pleasure to recommend Mishkins as a book of fascinating interest not only for children and young people but for adults also. Told with great sensitivity Mishkins is a story which has deep meaning far beyond the adventures of a much-loved cuddly toy. The message of Mishkins reaches across the generations and its truth is timeless. I am confident that the stories and adventures of a cuddly toy in these pages will point the reader to the great truths of belief and faith which make sense of life in a world of confusion and doubt…”
The Right Reverend Robin Eames, former Archbishop of Armagh.
“The story of Mishkins is a warm-hearted tale tackling some challenging topics. Set in the 19th century, it creatively introduces children to loss, the hard realities of life in poorer regions of the world and the slave trade. It will give rise to many questions but is woven through with faith in a God who loves all that He created and who can be trusted even in very troubled times.”
