Zodiacts: Aries Adventure: Camp On Camping On
Just in time for National Astrology Day, author Donna McGarry is proud to trumpet the publication of her quixotic children's book, Zodiacts: Aries Adventure: Camp On Camping On ($23.95/Lulu). This 36 page wildly imaginative illustrated book introduces young readers to the concepts of astrology while they cavort about space with the stars.
"I think it's nice for the kids to drift off imagining a universe filled with zany, unusual, star-folk friends," notes Donna McGarry, author of Zodiacts: A Whimsical Introduction to Celestial Beings. "Astrology is the study of human nature, and it's never too early to start learning about people." Quirky, original and innovative, this enchanting tale is filled with bright images of the constellations and features character embodiments of the astrological signs. Leo, his flamboyant sidekick Starrkitty, and their exuberant pal Sally 'Sag' join impetuous, thrill-seeking Andy Aries on the camping trip of a lifetime.
Combining mixed media graphics with verbal whimsy, Zodiacts will wow toddlers with colorful characters while the six to eight year old set will love reading aloud the fun and playful verses. Available on Lulu.com, the book will soon be listed with Amazon and Barnes and Noble. It can also be ordered through any bookstore.
