My daughter is in the middle of reading it. Shianna started reading it last night, to calm her down, whilst im in hospital, starting today. I suggested it and at 15 yrs old, she is loving it. I will start reading it, when I get home.
Thankyou Ant. Saying goobye to her this morning, was so much easier ❤

Excited to have received my copy today and love the family morals and values and themes in it … great reading for big kids too and I can’t wait to read to read it with my nephews.

Mavric Patos

Engaging, fun, a lovely story with a hidden moral.

We had the pleasure of having Anthony visit our preschool to present his book and show.

The children loved listening to the story. Anthony sat down at the children’s level, read his story to them and talked to them about the hidden meaning in the story. Later he had everyone participating in the songs, dancing around the room and ‘playing’ his guitar.

Highly recommended for preschool and lower primary ages.
