“To label this book merely as a children’s book would not do it justice. While this book is, indeed, a great read for children of all ages, many adults will be able to relate to the main character, John, who has lost all sense of wonder in his life and goes on a journey with his faithful cat to find out where the magic and imagination he knew as a child had gone.
Z.R. Southcombe never once “talks down” to the reader. John struggles in his search, and his emotional ups and downs are real. Along the way he meets several other adult characters who need convincing that the magic of imagination they once knew as children is still within their grasp, if only they take the effort to search for it.
This book is highly recommended for children, and those adults who feel the banality of daily life has taken something precious away. There’s a good chance they’ll find it here.” – Paul Magnan, Amazon
