“Kayzar is an exciting rollercoaster of an adventure from start to finish. Where real world meets fantasy with charming results. Filled with escapades at every turn it is appropriate for both boys and girls. It has strong positive messages without ever resorting to preaching. It is a wonderful book for parents to share with their children, or just read it on their own. It truly is a book for children of all ages. I should know, I’m 46 and loved every minute of it.” David Anthony, 'International Theatre and Event Producer'
“Josh is a troubled ten-year-old when he meets Manny, and it’s under no usual circumstances that the two become friends. From camping by the banks of a river to tumbling into a castle and leading a royal quest, Josh is forced to face challenges from within as well as whatever a magical new world has to throw at him. On his journey, with the help of a host of new friends, Josh discovers who he really is and who he is capable of becoming. Adapting to a different way of life and learning about others as well as himself, Josh must forge his own path and fight alongside his friends to defeat a great evil.
This story explores the beauty and depth of the relationships we can have with our parents and our friends, as well as the messages we carry with us from childhood. At the same time, we go on a rip-roaring adventure that spans worlds and join a fellowship in pursuit of a King’s most prized possession.

Bedtime! Anytime! by ethereal_mind
More than a book for bedtime. Book 1 in the Yabby Tales Series is truly delightful. Beautiful illustrations support this warm and sensitive story of Kevin the Yabby and his little nipper fears. Great for children who can read alone and perfect for reading and sharing with your own “Little Nipper”. Bedtime! is a real hit with the little ones in my world. We are looking forward to more books in the series, this one is always on constant replay.
Love the rhyming story by Mumofstacks
This is a great book to read to little ones who are scared of the dark or for older ones to read on their own. I loved the flow of the language and the pictures are bright and cheerful.
