A children's environmental-mystery-adventure
Meant to be experienced by adult and child (or adolescent) together, this book will tune you both into nature as you search for an answer to a watery forest problem with young Pilar and her animal friends.
I wrote this book for my children to read to their children, as entertainment primarily, but also a way to teach new words and concepts. It isn't written in childish language, and is very much intended to be a shared, experience between adult and child. I used to make up stories to tell my kids at bedtime, and was surprised how the characters stuck with them into adulthood. They remember the names better than I do! I wanted to create that bedtime excitement in a way that could be shared with next generations of my family, but the reaction has been so strong that I now want to share it with other parents & children, and grand parents and grand children. This isn't a story that was mapped out or outlined. As with the plays that I write, I created characters and then followed them where they took me. The result was a special tale that winds through a forest, with special friends learning how to communicate and cope with surprising challenges.
