PRLog - Oct. 22, 2012 - CORK, Ireland -- Vincent Eke’s first children’s storybook “Mama’s Tale of Kanji - The Turtle’s Shell” fundraising campaign project has gone live on the Irish public fundraising platform FundIt.ie The first title “The Turtle’s Shell” uses wit and a sprinkling of suspense to explore the conflicts of selfish greed versus community sharing and preservation. When the land of the animals was plagued by famine a smart turtle, Tobi, stumbles upon a source of food. By his cunning and resourcefulness he finds ways to fend of hunger for himself and family. Friends turn against him with dire consequences when the ‘cat was let out of the bag’ and the truth became public.

“In a way ‘The Turtle’s Shell’ is an exciting, funny, fast paced story of events which leads to a ‘not-so happy ending’ tragic result for some of the characters,” Vincent said. “There are however, some of life’s fundamental lessons to be learned from the adventure of the animals.”

Vincent’s first children’s storybook “Mama’s Tale of Kanji - The Turtle’s Shell” was inspired by stories he heard as a young child growing up in his native country of Nigeria.

“I felt I should share these African folklore tales with today’s children,” he said. “These exciting stories partly inspired and challenged me to be myself, while looking for the good in every person or situation. I believe there are some of life’s lessons which are still relevant today to be learned by children, and one powerful way to teach our kids some of these lessons is through stories that stimulate their mind and thoughts. I am having a lot of fun sharing my stories with the children of the world starting with those in my local community.”

In order to realise his goal of raising the funds he needs to complete the book’s design, printing and posting of his book to generous funders he has gone out and pulled out all the stops. Vincent has put together an array of awesome one-off rewards starting with an incremental Universal Turtle Hug to visiting your favourite charity or book club.

He studied Creative Writing at the Munster Literature Centre under the tutelage of popular Irish author Vincent McDonnell. He also studied Computer Science and Economics from the famous University College Cork in Ireland. Vincent spends his time writing more children’s folklore stories, developing websites and managing his publishing firm Lionpen Publishing.
