Sneezle Beezle was written by Bruce Laybourn for his New Zealand-born son who now lives with his mother in Turkey.

Stories that intrigued Dylan were a sure way to ensure his English improved so father and son could communicate.

With Dylan devouring every English language book Bruce had been able to cram into his suitcase, he decided to write his own stories for his wee boy. 

Dylan particularly loved the stories where he was a principal character.

Now 7-years-old, Dylan is fluent in English but still loves his dad’s stories. 

Bruce was introduced to Sneezle Beezle by his own father, Ren, who often asked, if any of his own six kids had a cold: “Have you got the sneezle beezles?”
