New to fatherhood, Chris Skinner takes a leap from FinTech to fiction in a new series of children’s books for emerging readers. A father of twin boys, Skinner was dismayed to find that there were not a lot of great G-rated superhero stories to share at bedtime, and so CAPTAIN CAKE: MEET THE CANDY CREW (Marshall Cavendish Children; August 2021, ISBN:9789814928632; Original Trade Paperback) was born.
In book one of the five-part CAPTAIN CAKE series, Skinner introduces Captain Cake, Lieutenant Chocolate, Sergeant Jelly and Private Potato for an adventure like no other. Together, The Crew team up using each of their unique attributes to complete their very first mission. But will they be able to work together cohesively, or will differences in personalities stand in their way?
CAPTAIN CAKE is the perfect example of how far a little teamwork and problem-solving can go when learning new skills and having fun along the way!
About the Author: Chris Skinner is a financial technology expert and author of Digital Bank, Digital Human and Doing Digital. As a doting father, he would read stories to his twin boys every night. But when the boys got older and it became a challenge to find age-appropriate adventure stories for them, Chris came up with the stories himself. Inspired by the twins’ imagination, bedtime storytelling became a dive into the exciting universe of Captain Cake and the Candy Crew as they explored space. Captain Cake is the bestselling author’s first series of children’s books.
