Featured Indie Book: The Sun Zebra (Rolando Garcia)

The Sun Zebra - Rolando Garcia
Featured Indie Book on Indie Author News: 5 Short Stories 'Family Fiction' The Sun Zebra by Rolando Garcia.

The Book has been self-published via Amazon KDP Select and is available as eBook for Kindle.

The Sun Zebra is about the "adventures in living" of an unusual little girl called Nell, her mother, Rhonda, and Nell's father who is the narrator of the stories. The stories deal with how the world of adults and its hard realities intersects with the magical carefree world of children.

It is a “children’s book for grownups.” Its purpose is to motivate adults to discover (or rediscover) what it is to see the world through the eyes of a child and learn from the experience. It is both motivational and inspirational without being religious or preachy.

Reviews (Excerpts)

- "The Sun Zebra is a real delight, a treat for young and old alike and a nudge to see things as a child does. An excellent book![...]" - Storm (Amazon)

- "[...] I also enjoyed the high quality of the stories as they included so much detail which made them fascinating. I know you will love these stories and remember them long after you've finished reading.[...]" - Rebecca Johnson

- "[...] These stories are more than charming and well-narrated anecdotes. Nell's adventures are, for me, parables that confront death and values and perception. Every minute one gives to sharing with Nell the discovery of her world, will enrich one's own world...they are so much fun to read." - Dan Essman
