Description Dee-Jan's Mother is Sick (Adventures of Dee-Jan and Mocka-La Doo S.) [Board book] de Philip Nigel Ward:

'Dee-Jan's Mother is sick' emphasises the problems of living in the rain forest. Getting his sick mother to hospital on the back of Mocka-La-Doo is a task that leads to many adventures including rescuing his friend Toko, from a river. As this is their first time out of the jungle the boys are overwhelmed by the sights and sounds when they finally make it to the city and have a lot of fun fighting with a vending machine. Working at an elephant nature park while Dee-Jan's mother recovers in hospital, Mocka-La Doo learns how to play football and the two boys make a new friend but once his mother is strong enough the boys have to return to the village. Philip was born in Bradford in 1949 but spent most of his childhood in Africa where he was brought up to love the jungle and run free. Always an outdoor person it was no surprise to his family when in 1965, at the age of fifteen, he announced that he wanted to join the Army- leaving home that Easter to join the Junior Leaders Regiment Royal Artillery. Two years later in the rank of Junior Battery Sergeant Major, Philip passed out of Boys Service and was posted to First Regiment Royal Horse Artillery, where he spent most of his 26 year Army career. Having attained the rank of Warrant Officer Class One and carried out a 2 year appointment as Regimental Sergeant Major of his Regiment, Philip was commissioned to the rank of Captain and posted to The Royal School of Artillery on Salisbury Plain, as a Troop Commander. During his 3 years in Wiltshire Philip bought a house in Devon where he spent his weekends and holidays and could be close to his parents, who had retired to the tiny village of Crows Nest, near Liskeard in Cornwall. In 1989 and always in search of adventure, Philip applied for Loan Service and was posted to the Sultan of Oman's Artillery as Regimental Training officer- leaving behind his 300 year old cottage in north Devon, complete with Poltergeist, under the watchful eye of his mother. During his tour in the Oman, the first Gulf war started and Philip was responsible for bringing his Omani Regiment up to war standard and ensuring their participation with the Allied Forces was both successful and casualty free. While on vacation after the war, Philip stumbled on Thailand during a stopover, on route to Hong Kong and realized immediately that this was where he wanted to be. The People, the climate, the mystical Lanna Kingdom of the north with its many Hill tribe people and of course the Elephants, were an attraction that he could not put out of his mind and so in 1991, at the end of his tour in the Oman, Philip resigned his commission and retired to Thailand. In 1995 while working at an elephant nature park, Philip was given the opportunity to work on an elephant hospital project and, as a volunteer in the post of Camp Coordinator, worked on the venture for 6 months. During that period he lived in a small mountain village where he worked not just with elephants but also with their native hill tribe handlers- learning the Mahouts trade. Regular visits to other, more remote villages deep in the rain forests, many only accessible by bamboo raft, were also undertaken to examine and treat sick elephants. He also established a class in the village where he lived, teaching Basic English to some 20 mahouts and 45 of the local children. In 2004, while recovering from a back injury, Philip remembered his days living at the elephant camp and the expressions on the faces of the very poor, uneducated children as they sat on the floor of his house listening to him telling stories. This thought prompted him to write a book about the very children he had been teaching- telling their story through pictures and words, so that other children around the world might learn about their culture and unique way of life. The five book series, titled The Adventures of Dee-Jan and Mocka-La-Doo is based on the real life of the mahout who taught him how to ride during those early days in the village and they are illustrated throughout with colour photographs of the boy and his elephant during their adventures. The books are aimed at 7 to 11 year old children but the lives of these Hill Tribe people and their primitive living conditions will be both entertaining and educational to children of most age groups and can also be read to younger children, as a bed time story. Although Philip still lives in northern Thailand, where he is the Web Master for Maetang Elephant Park, he still returns to England annually for a holiday and to visit family and friends.
