A children's world is inevitably one built around colossal changes and an unavoidable 'metamorphosis' as they grow up. Suddenly they can do things themselves and parents can be a bit embarrassing but deeply loved!
For your children, assuming they have read all the series of Matthew John and his friends adventures and have drawn close to all the Bat Riders, this volume provides a powerful new step forward in their lives that can help them with the growing-up process, a valuable dollop of life wisdom that is truly uplifting and yet is handled so gently, with truly a master's touch,that they can delicately absorb a happiness supportive grasp of life whilst enjoying the story enormously. For example don't miss the wolves being fed with Yumi fruit!
You'll have to read this volume and look between the lines with adult awareness to see what a sensible philosophy the writer is subtly sharing. Only read this story with your children after all the other volumes. Highly recommended.
