Young and spirited fawn Ronaldo and his
best friend Rudi are flying cadets at the Reindeer Flying Academy. Ronaldo
dreams of becoming one of Santa’s reindeer just like Vixen, Ronaldo’s hero and
a part of North Pole Reindeer Team. With his father’s carrot pancakes in his
belly and his grandfather’s words of wisdom in his mind “Imagine. See
it, feel it, believe it! You can do anything, if you truly believe in
yourself,’ Ronaldo prepares for his toughest flying test ever, The
This is an exciting children’s book of fun
and adventure complemented by beautiful and charming illustrations by the
author herself. The book is filled with valuable lessons about friendship,
family, courage and determination. Each page elicits either smile or laughter
and in the case of young readers, offers inspiration and encouragement.
However, traditional parents may find some
scenes not proper for very young and impressionable readers (like passing gas
in public, belching, and laughing at other people’s misfortune) whereas, the
less traditional ones would find the scenes extremely funny.
Congratulations to Maxine Sylvester (@flyingronaldo) on such a marvelous book! For

Aaru is the first book in the Aaru Cycle series
written by David Meredith.
Rose is extremely sick. In fact, she is
dying. She wants nothing more than for death to claim her and for the pain and
agony, she has endured for years, to stop. But her sister Koren would not let
go. Not just yet. So, Rose agrees to try one final attempt to save her life,
and that is to upload her mind to a super computer called Aaru.
Aaru is a virtual world where the
residents can live forever, free of pain, sickness and death. It is developed
by Elysian Industries ‘to allow the truly great members of the human
race to continue their work of advancing mankind’ and to save
unfortunate children, like Rose, from pain, misery and death.
Now, Elysian Industries is offering this
virtual paradise to those who can afford it and with sweet, innocent and
beautiful Koren as the spokesperson, Aaru is trending on social media and
getting the attention of not only prospective clients but also of moralists and
This is a very interesting book with a
very timely subject. It actually reminds me of the movies Transcendence and
Chappie but more creative since it also presents the virtual world from the
inside. The book is told in alternate settings between Koren in the physical
world and Rose in the virtual world. It features multiple issues including
immortality, familial relationship, fame, obsession and cyber crime.
However, I find the style of writing too
verbose for my simple taste, but aside from the few misspelled words
(like drug instead of drag and breath instead
of breathe) I like everything about the book and I enjoyed it a lot
especially the suspense part which actually brings up the dangers lurking in
Congratulations to David Meredith on
such a great book. Can’t wait for the next book in the series. For other books

The Golden Maple Tree is the second book in the magical children’s fantasy
series Magora created by Marc Remus.
The fun and adventure continue as Holly
and her friends Amanda, Brian and Rufus return to Magora for their second year
as students in Cliffony Academy of the Arts. Happy as she is to be back in this
beautiful and fantasy world, Holly is sad to learn that her friend, Ileana, a
former Unfinished is so sick she is practically dying and only the leaves of
the mysterious Golden Maple Tree could possibly save her life. With her friends
rallying behind her, Holly makes up her mind to find the mysterious tree and save
Just like the first book in the series, The Gallery of Wonders, this is an
exciting and adventure-filled book about friendship, what we are willing to do
and how far we are willing to go for the sake of our friends. The book also
shows how family does not necessarily have to be blood-related.
It is a well-written book and I find the
scenes even more exciting and more suspenseful than those in the first book.
The author takes us to a completely different word about art and beauty. He
introduces new and intriguing creatures like the Chandrills, Hisslers and
Sylkies. He also includes unexpected twists that makes the entire series much
