Illustrated Gift Book

Release Day: November 18
About the Book
When Leslie Gibbons’ daughter was expecting her first baby, she despaired over the lack of mothers and mother-figures in fairytales. She begged Leslie to write a story with a living, loving mother that she could share with her family. That’s how A Fairytale for Mothers was born.
Robyn Lane Books is proud to present this 32-page, full color gift book for mothers, mother-figures, and their children everywhere. It is the story of a mother bird’s love for her chicks, and the generous gift she shares with each one as it is his, or her turn to leave the nest. More, it is the story of how those adult chicks return to share gifts of their own. It is a story you will treasure for years to come, beautifully illustrated in water color.
Leslie Gibbons was born in the United States, brought up in England and settled in Canada when she was 13 years old. She lives on the North Shore of Vancouver in the shadow of Hollyburn Mountain and a minute’s walk to the sea. There, she shares a little house with her husband, Maurice, two cats and a dog. Between them, they have eight children, who frequently occupy the dining room table with their own families.
