)-- "Ronald The Grump: A Contemporary Fairytale for Adults" by Richard S. Arthurson chosen as Medalist Winner in the E-Book General Fiction category of the New Apple Book Awards for Excellence in Independent Publishing.
Written and created by a 72 year-old senior and illustrated by a 24 year-old Millennial this contemporary fairy tale for adults is a parable about our recent presidential election. The citizens of the magical land of Angelica on the planet Thera run out of seeds due to Ogres hoarding 90% of them. A mutant orange Ogre, Ronald the Grump, tries to persuade the citizens of Angelica to let him lead the land to make things better for ordinary Angelicans--through hate, selfishness, lies and anger. A caring Angelican female arises who challenges Ronald the Grump and says the way to make things better is by Angelicans working together. Who prevails and what happens is told in words and illustrations, with a "choose your own" ending. In addition to its New Apple Medalist win, "Ronald the Grump" also won a Bronze Medal at the Readers Favorites International Book Awards.
