Father-of-two Roger de Kassel hopes new book will teach children about environment
A father-of-two hopes his stories about the adventures of a pigeon will help teach Barnet children about moral and environmental issues.
Roger de Kassel, 51, of Woodside Park teamed up with anti-litter campaign group Clean Up Britain while writing his first illustrated book about the adventures of Mr P the pigeon.
He hopes to teach young people the importance of taking care of the environment as well as other people.
Mr de Kassel, who works in recruitment, was inspired to write after seeing rubbish in Friary Park.
He said: “It was a lovely sunny day and there was litter scattered across the park. You look at it and think ‘what an eyesore’. Why can’t people just pick it up and put it in the bin?
“I started making up stories with my daughters - I wanted to teach them how to behave around the streets and in everyday life.”
Mr de Kassel also plans to publish other educational books including Mr P and the Red Poppy to highlight the importance of Remembrance Sunday.
He added: “A lot of kids don’t really know why we commemorate this day - even teenagers."
