“The planet Limpoo was once home to a peaceful race of fuzzy creatures known as Mirms. The Mirms were long lived and very gracious to any who travelled to their world. They had no technology or weapons, but preferred a life of simple farming on their quiet planet.
Neither Trillakians, Grumps, nor the plants of Chorl like to discuss the Mirms and what happened to Limpoo. In fact, the fate of Limpoo is so tragic, it requires a whole detailed explanation, which will follow.”

Here it is, the latest issue of Kirkus Reviews Magazine. On the right is a close-up of my review! Less than ten percent of independently published stories reviewed by Kirkus are actually featured in their magazine, which is sent out to over 5000 industry professionals, like librarians, publishers and literary agents! Let’s hope this one falls into the hands of the right people 🙂
With all the competition out there, this is a great opportunity for “The Adventures of the Salamander” to rise above the crowd, and be recognized for the great work of children’s literature that it is … don’t you think?
I really hope this is the starting point of a new adventure! Wish me luck!
