Derek Hook is the owner of a bed and breakfast in Yewfield, England in the Lake District (the home of Wordsworth, Coleridge, Beatrix Potter, and other English writers). He started telling stories when he was asked to tell a story to school children in India. He was hooked, so to speak. He began to collect stories and make them his own. His travels and friends brought him the seeds of stories from around the world.
Derek has been delighting young audiences across India for over a decade now, with his magical storytelling performances. Using music and percussion, Derek weaves stories that are packed with sound, colourful characters, twists in the plot and cheeky dark humour.
