My book is getting great reviews. Some of them are printed below.
"There are times these days that we wonder about the values our kids are growing up with. Charlemagne to the Rescue teaches the reader that bravery and loyalty are good, challenges can be overcome and change can be good, and it does so in a colorful and entertaining way. It also provides helpful and practical tips for any would-be aquarist." -- Ron
"This wonderfully illustrated and crisply written story allows the reader to experience pet fish life from a "first goldfish" perspective. Diana Patton's narrative and images explore and explain such important themes and topics as animal welfare, compassion, empathy, friendship, leadership, loyalty, and the human animal bond. Patton combines these important messages with basic aquariology and responsible pet fish care.
Any child lucky enough to read this book will finish with an enriched understanding of the world around them thanks to Patton's prose and artwork. Readers will learn that even scary challenges can be understood, and eventually surmounted, with the help of good communication skills, support of others, self confidence, and the willingness to accept and embrace change! " -- G. Lewbart
"What a lovely treat for the young, curious and tender child's mind. Colorful and bright illustrations pop out from every page of this beautifully told story. If we spend more time with our kids sharing a book like this together, this world would be a better place to live for generation to come." -- Benz
"Charlemagne to the Rescue is a gentle story of friendship and bravery as told through the eyes of a goldfish. Diana Patton's illustrations plunge readers into the watery world of a pet store aquarium, where fear of the net turns into a heartwarming life lesson." -- Karen
When asked why she wrote Charlemagne to the Rescue, Author/Illustrator Diana Patton said:
"Charlemagne was written because of my love for children and fishes. It is my hope that children will identify with Charlemagne and they might realize that in caring for others and acting for others' good, one is not only 'brave' but one can gain in self-esteem. Charlemagne forgets himself and his fears in helping his friends and by so doing, helps himself as well."
"Charlemagne also realizes that just because there is change, just because there is something new, it is not bad. New can be as good as the old, or even better. Children might identify with this situation whether it has to do with a new home, a new school, or even a new sibling or parent."
"Charlemagne can be read at school as a starting point for several subjects or discussions. Each book contains a "Lets Talk About It" Study Guide and Goldfish Care and Feeding instructions. I hate to hear that children bring home a goldfish as a prize at a fair and it dies soon after. If the basics of goldfish care are followed, the goldfish can live for years."
