"It’s been quite a while since I have read a children’s book and I really enjoyed this collection of stories. There are such strong themes of friendship, adventure, and positive thinking from beginning to end! There is such happiness and love and acceptance in this collection, making these perfect stories at bedtime, or especially if your little one has had a bad day and needs their spirits lifted. Furstenberg’s beautiful writing and vivid imagery make these stories wonderful to read aloud, but not at a level too difficult for a child to understand. I loved all of the positive messages and lessons in each story about friendship, especially the beauty of unlikely friendships." (Dandelion Inspired Book Review)

About Patricia Furstenberg

Patricia Furstenberg came to writing though reading, her passion for books being something she inherited from her parents. She usually writes at her kitchen table, early morning while the kettle hums or in her car, while she waits for her children to come out from school. “When I write, I write,” she usually says. When she’s not writing she likes to read, listen to music, dance and bake.
One of the characters portrayed in her children stories is Pete, the yellow toy elephant. Not many know, but Pete exists and lives in Pat's home.
This Romanian born writer is living happily with her husband, children and dogs in sunny South Africa.
