Kurios Outside his World is a story about a very young cat-like creature who wakes up one day and finds himself in the wrong world.

Kurios Outside his World is a story about a very young cat-like creature who wakes up one day and finds himself in the wrong world.

Not only is he in a strange dark forest but he has become a giant and is so tall he can almost see over the tree tops. Kurios is lost. He feels frightened, alienated and very little inside himself - until he meets a tiny but wise old being who agrees to help him find his way home.

Author Elizabeth Moya (aka Liz Lumley-Smith) was inspired to write the story when she revisited a very old folder containing the outline and first sketches for a story she’d first started over 40 years ago! The result is her first book for children (approx 6-8 years old ) and the young at heart.

Liz, is a mixed media artist, art psychotherapist and illustrator. She worked for many years in the NHS and with a children’s bereavement charity. She is a member of an artists' group Hybrid who exhibit regularly and has a small independent art therapy practice.  

“I love living in Bishopston because it is so local with friendly neighbours and immediate access to the Gloucester Road for plastic free shopping. Its multicultural cafes are very good for meeting friends, drinking coffee and trying to put the world to rights!” she said.

Elizabeth Moya will be doing a book signing for Kurios on February 17 at the Playful Toyshop, 87 Gloucester Rd, from 12-3pm. 

The books can be ordered from www.arkbound.com or bought in the Playful Toyshop.
