Marien’s Wish
By Cinthia Wild and Colin Wild

Three incredible friends - a Firefly, a Dragonfly and a Dung beetle work together as a team to fulfil a dream for their friend Marien, a Ladybug.


Are you a Unicorn . . . or a Dragon?

As the child of an extreme introvert and an extreme extravert, I have lived with two warring factions inside of me for my entire life. The part of me that wants to talk to everyone and blurt out whatever comes to mind. and the part of me that's instantly sorry for rash words. Hasty words have led me into trouble more than once.

Dunfer the Dragon is like that. He's very sweet and happy-go-lucky, but sometimes his actions drive his new neighbor, Isadorn, up the wall.

Isadorn is a very caring and loving creature, but she's also a creature of habit. And when Dunfer comes stomping along, she's not quite sure how to address the problem.

Isadorn the Unicorn and the Sloppy Dragon is my latest children's picture book, illustrated once again by the amazing Indira Zuleta. Children will love the fantastic illustrations and fun story, while also learning about conflict resolution and how to let someone know when their feelings have been hurt in a gentle and productive way.

Isadorn the Unicorn is available today in paperback on Amazon, with free shipping from Amazon Prime HERE. The Kindle version is releasing this Wednesday, but you can pre-order it for a special price HERE.

Happy reading!
