Really incredible! It's like a children's book for adults and I don't mean that in a derogatory way at all. This is so needed and has transformational messages in every story. I imagine some readers won't even realize that they're being spoken to subliminally. They'll just love and feel compassion for every character. I actually read the book to my wife. It's the kind of book that you want to read out loud and/or have read to you. The author by-passes the rational mind and opens the heart via the reader's love for animals. It's literary hypnosis. Now quantum healing is in the form of fables again and our logical "not me" censorship is disarmed, leading to deep self-reflection. Very, very smart and poetic. We'll order as Christmas presents for all our family.

Christina Barnes is able to uniquely bring a voice to deeply emotional experiences through the endearing stories with animals and analogies.  You just get it and can relate.  Her stories bring you from the depths of despair to hope to growth to self-love and self-actualization with all the emotions along the way – all in a short story!

5.0 out of 5 stars I absolutely loved this book!

November 17, 2015

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase

I absolutely loved this book! The format was so inspirational from the pictures to the quotes to the stories themselves. After reading it through I find myself picking it up in moments when I need some inspiration and am amazed how often I open it to a page that is meaningful for what I need in that very moment. It's amazing how much wisdom can be imparted in just a few pages. My kids love it as well, I have a daughter who is struggling through some personal issues and this book has been an inspiration and she has shared it with others who can use some words of wisdom. The art is absolutely amazing, I have never seen anything like it before. From cover to cover I would recommend this book. On so many levels it is captivating and something you will share with others and go back to time and again for a boost of insight.

Great book. This book was so good I could not even stop reading it. The author really kept me engaged for the whole book, I will actually be reading the whole book again very soon, it was that good, give this book a try for sure.

Christina Barnes book encompasses empowerment & wonder all wrapped up in fantasy filled whimsical journey through deep truths. Her short stories and the art that correlates to them, reminded me that I am a sovereign woman in control of my destiny.

This is a unique and beautifully illustrated book containing short stories with marvelous life lessons. I felt the complete range of emotions from fear, hope, joy and love along with the characters as each experienced their brave journey within and without their beautiful, lovable selves.

The easy to relate to tales are a combination of simple, pure, touching and profound at the same time!

I found this book to be very innovative and enlightening. I loved each one of the characters and their outlook on life. It made me ponder some of the aspects of my own life and how I could have handled them just a bit differently. I also gave this as a gift to one of my friends and she also loved it! The pictures are a main feature of the book and are done so beautifully!! THis is truly a book anyone would love.

In her disarming collection of short stories, Christina Barnes explores the strength and resilience of the human spirit. This book will resonate with anyone who has experienced trauma and found the courage to move past it to a place of healing.
