At last! After sixty years in-the-writing, my long-awaited faerytale fantasy, "Ifflepinn Island" is finally published!
Our hero, Iffleplum—no ordinary ifflepinn—loses the spirit of his heart through fantasising knightly deeds of derring-do and battling monsters merely for the favour of a king.
“Don’t throw your heart away on wild deeds,” his Iffle-mother Mumkin had warned him. But alas! when his wild wishes suddenly come true, in fearful shock, the spirit of his heart flies out as he is whisked away on a terrifying and unexpected trip! Left a wanderer with an empty heart, his search to recapture his elfin-spirit once again plunges him into strange worlds and stranger encounters with Half-Elves, Wise-Arks, Men and Ghòrs, Trolls and Ogres, and more fantastical adventures than he ever dreamed, while learning many of life’s secrets along the way.
The story basically cultivates the message to “always follow one’s heart.” But it covers many other aspects to stimulate a child’s imagination. Sprinkled seamlessly throughout the narrative are spiritual insights regarding life and the after death state, the effects of thoughts, feelings and desires in the ether and other planes of existence. It also touches on meditation, timelessness, karma, Out-of-the-Body Experience, ecology and environmental issues, nature spirits, self-identity, Shabda Yoga, vegetarianism, freedom from fear and a sense of the deep mystical secrets of life (all explained in the simplest terms, appreciated by both children and adults alike).
Come! Let the Heartboat carry you away to Ifflepinn Island on an adventure like no other!
My editors believe this could be the emergence of a new children's classic—especially-for-adults—like all good solid read-aloud bedtime stories are.
Hint: First editions of children’s classics are always coveted in later years and eventually command huge prices from collectors.
