The Off We Go! Story PDF Print E-mail

My name is Avril Webster. I am married to Robert and we live in Limerick, Ireland. We have 3 children; Stephen, Michael and Rachel. Stephen has a rare chromosomal disorder.

Here in this YouTube video taken at the book launch of the first 6 books in the Off We Go! series in O'Mahony's Limerick, in October 2007, I describe the story behind the books.

Alterntively read on for a summary of story.

Avril Webster - The Author of the Off We Go! Series PDF Print E-mail

I’m Avril, married to Robert and I’m Mum to 3 kids, Stephen, Michael and Rachel. Stephen has special needs (he has a rare chromosomal disorder). We can see he has lots in common with children on the autistic spectrum and children with down syndrome. As well being a Mum, I’m an advocate/lobbyist for those with disabilities. I feel strongly about the importance of including Stephen is as many everyday activities and I have created the Off We Go! series of books to help Stephen and kids like him manage with everyday events.

David RyleyI’m David, and I’m honoured to have had the opportunity to work with Avril on the ‘Off We Go’ books.

I was introduced to Avril through my neighbour, Sandra. Sandra’s daughter and Avril’s son were classmates at St Vincent’s Special School, Lisnagry, Limerick in Ireland. Avril was looking for someone to do artwork for her books, and Sandra thought I’d be just the fit. Turns out she was right, and several months and coffee mornings later we had created the first 6 books.
