The Bubble Fairy Children’s book by Terry Moorhead

Who says that fairy stories cannot come true? Not the family of former respected Belfast Telegraph journalist Terry Moorehead, whose children and grandchildren have combined to publish children's tales that Terry had scribbled down over the years.

He had even sent some of them to the Disney company. And although they were rejected, he treasured the letter he received signed by Walt Disney.

Terry passed away 19 years ago at the age of 75 and his stories lay in a case in the attic until the death of his widow. It was only during lockdown last year that his daughter began collating all the material and a grandson added his artistic skills to the words.

It was a labour of love by two generations of Terry's family. The end result, The Bubble Fairy, no doubt would have filled him with pride, as his children and grandchildren were treasured by him.

What a beautiful tribute. Even he might have struggled to find the right words of appreciation.
