Sacramento, CA, October 04, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Children’s author Michelle Nicole Martin today announced the release of Princess and Missy’s Magical Adventures, The Crystal Heart, published by Outskirts Press. Martin’s upbeat story, with enchanting illustrations by internationally recognized artist Richa Kinra, teaches children that love conquers all and that there is always a solution to a problem.
Princess is a young poodle with a loving spirit who’s “cute, chubby and short.” She finds herself homeless one day, though, after her family suddenly disappears. Not one to give up, Princess follows her own loving heart, helps a young lady and saves children’s lives, and is ultimately awarded the Crystal Heart by Missy, the magical butterfly.
Together they continue on many enchanted adventures, rescuing others from despair and being careful only to avoid Jaith, the Joy Stealer, and not to be overcome by her wicked plans.
“The lesson I am trying to convey,” says author Martin, “is even if all seems lost, when you walk through the pain, unexpected gifts and inner strength appear.” Kinra’s illustrations embellish this message in Martin’s text with their simple, aesthetic images that quickly catch children’s attention while still conveying the emotion and character of the story.
The second childrens book in this series, The Ruby Door, is scheduled to be released soon.
Princess and Missy’s Magical Adventures is available on-line in paperback through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and at www.outskirtspress.com/bookstore for a maximum trade discount in quantities of ten or more.
