One of many Five-Star reviewers says:

 “Ifflepinn Island is gripping and delightful. It is an all embracing story that covers time, space, age and taste. There are passages resembling elements from C.S Lewis chronicles, and Tolkien and Tolstoy epic masterpieces."


It is a creation that becomes part of your life, which you want to hear more of, but do not want to end. A fantasy book for all ages, with many pointers for our daily perception on life. I recommend it to children and adults alike.”

Says the Author:

"Ifflepinn Island” has been compared to the similarly endearing and timeless quality of the “Wizard of Oz.”  One reviewer likened it to “Moomintroll meets the Hobbit, somewhere way beyond the far side of Narnia.”  So that may give you some idea of the genre. But it is not like any of them. I guarantee you have never read anything like it before."

Asked what he wants to do with this book, he replied

 “I want to stimulate the imagination of children with a magical sense of existence, while seeding their consciousness with life-enhancing secrets and positive attitudes. These are easily absorbed in the middle of the adventures of the hero, Iffleplum.

Author Bio

I started out as a surrealist painter, then a writer, actor and theatrical and film designer during seven years of vagabondage around the word. I hitch-hiked down the length of Africa, spent 3 years as a wandering monk in India; became founder-editor of Gandalf’s Garden magazine and Community and co-founder of The Open Centre for spiritualized psychotherapy in London. For the last 50 years I have quietly travelled the world as a spiritual mentor and Mantra Master, teaching Mantra and Advaita Vedanta workshops in many countries.

Because of my many years of adventures on dangerous roads—sleeping under the bridges with tramps in Paris, working as an elephant-trainer, Night-club singer and a rock-driller in King Solomon’s mines in the Israeli desert; being shot at by bandits, surviving knife attacks, hold-ups, poisoned darts and earthquakes while trekking down Africa, crossing deserts, living with the Dervishes in Turkey and Iran, and clinging to the outside of an express train for 10 hours through the night in India—the Mind-Body-Spirit  journals have called me ‘the Indiana Jones of Yoga.’

So you can be sure that Ifflepinn Island will be just as remarkably adventurous!

And children from 4 -10 years old adore the Audio CD version of the first four chapters of “Ifflepinn Island” narrated by the author in different character voices, including music and delightful sound effects.
