by Richard Coan

Richard Coan’s latest book, LOST IN ANOTHER WORLD, is a dream fantasy in the tradition of Lewis Carroll and C.S. Lewis. It will appeal to children from 9 to 95. Actually is is suitable for children 9 to 12, but any adult who remains in touch with their inner child, forever part of each of us, will enjoy it.

Abandoned in the woods by his parents, a young boy named Teddy slides downward into a dream world where he is faced with many challenges to his ingenuity and courage. In a realm that is home to a variety of animals and ruled by a gigantic jackrabbit, the king puts him through three major tests to determine whether he is worthy of remaining there. Passing the tests, Teddy moves to a neighboring realm, where he meets a girl named Mindy, whom he would love to have as a sister. She disappears, and he encounters many other creatures as he endeavors to find her. They include a family of mischievous imps, an overpowering and controlling mother, a brutal giant, and a little bluebird who serves as a guide. At the end of an elaborate journey, Teddy awakens to a promising new life.

James F. Weinsier Author- WHERE DO WE GO? A Child-friendly about Death


      By James F. Weinsier

      The award-winning book, Where Do We Go?, delicately explores the theme of death in a comforting, child-friendly fashion with reassuring, thought-provoking text and cheerful illustrations. Its non-secular approach compatibly blends with any religious, spiritual or nondenominational framework, opening a pathway for a discussion about the hereafter. Weinsier conceived the book after his tragic loss of three immediate family members over a nine-month period. As he lovingly responded to his young grandchildren’s questions about their loved ones’ fates, the book naturally evolved, becoming an invaluable tool for parents, caregivers and other adults challenged with talking about death with little ones.
