5 stars for Ursamer: An Eco-Story For Children by Karina McRoberts #kidlit #feelgood #fiction #books

Title: Ursamer: An Eco-Story For Children (Treasury of Feel-Good Stories)

Author: Karina McRoberts

Genre: Children’s Fiction, Feel-Good Fiction, Adventure

Book Blurb:

Who is this intriguing little girl and her amazing puppy?

Where has she come from? What is her story? She has something very important to say, but no one is listening!

A sweet, poignant tale about climate change, Ursamer is ideal for children ages 8 and older.

My Review:

An extremely well-written and contrived short story that brings focus on the burgeoning environmental problems we all face. Here, the author creatively uses a young Inuit girl and her dog as the vehicle to drive the story. The fish out of water is always a winning approach.

What really stands out here is how the author captured the common mindset faced by people concerned with Global Warming. You have many who simply don't understand. You have some who are hostile and just want the person to go away. Only a child truly gets it. How sadly accurate is that in real life?

A worthwhile read that will give the reader pause for thought. If this short story reaches one person, it will make the world a better place. Excellent reading for everyone living in the world today.

My Rating: 5 stars

Author Biography:

Escape to the heights of your heart and the depths of your soul.

Karina McRoberts is an Australian author, illustrator, musician, and theatre producer.

Previously working as a conservation scientist, she was struck down by a mosquito-borne virus. No longer able to work, Karina now spends her time writing fiction to inspire, encourage, enlighten and entertain; especially those readers active in social justice, humanitarian work, and protection of the Earth. Her fiction is filled with characters and stories designed to give you a lift.

Karina also writes self-instruction books on illustration and creative writing. There is something for everybody, children included. Her project this year is assistance to older writers wishing to publish a novel or novella entitled, 'A Novel at Ninety.'

"2020 was the year of the rat. Aptly named! Did you know that 2021 is the year of medical workers? They sure do need all the support we can give them! In these dark days of overt racism, violence, betrayal, and plague, I hope readers find solace in my creations. Hope is light to the heart! As my character JT Gordon says in my time-travel adventure/romance novel, The Palace of the Stars, 'Don't measure your time in minutes, treasure your time in moments.' Indeed. Grab the quality."
