Editor's Story: 

I always feel fun to edited story book, like fairy tales or fables. It's exciting! I like reading fairy tales~
Even so I still find difficulties in selecting stories and words that suitable for children's mind. I had to change some scenes in the stories, such as the scene when charming prince kissed Sleeping Beauty to waken her up, the same goes for Snow White; I've also change the scene when prince tricked Rapunzel to get inside her captivated tower, etc. Will the children notice it? Wondering about their reaction (^^). The reason why I changed the scenes was to avoid inappropriate scenes for children, like kissing. Well they would known about it when they grew older, why spoil the fun at early age? (XP). Beside of that, I also want to bring happy and fun feeling when Children reads the book. The illustrations will complete the work.

Editor's Story: 

Editing a book like this is always feel exciting yet confusing (XD). I get so many information about babies that I haven't known before. This book was made through an interview process with the doctor, because her schedule was very tight to write a book. In short, I interview the doctor then compile it to become a book. It's quite tiring to listen the recording again and again, every day. This book was also late in production because I seem couldn't get what I want to come up from the book. I always feel lacking in some parts. In the end, I feel glad the book was finally finished :)
The fun thing about working the book was going to new place I haven't gone before, getting new information, and meeting new people. It's tiring but I also feel satisfied. Hope the book will bring happiness to people reading it. Enjoy~~~
