Book Description

Kids love picture books. They love images full of colors, creativity and action. The alignment of twelve of the biggest stars has caused great destruction within the cosmos; therefore, new galaxies are appearing, modifying the cosmic structure. Ark has risen and is attracting the leftover asteroids, forming two magnetic field lines with amazing powers. Though Dolos is attempting to evaporate Ark’s water, Lamed uses the Flower of Life as a secret weapon. His father taught him that the power of Faith is all he needs to achieve his dreams. A huge cocoon is giving birth to a butterfly — a human butterfly, named Aletehia. How are Aletheia and Lamed expected to stop Dolos without attacking him? If Dolos doesn’t reach true understanding in time the planet they know and love will be lost forever.


Editorial Reviews

From the Author

A. M. Curiel I have been an Architect for 19 years. Though, not to long ago I decided to go down a different path in writing a children's book. I has used my experience in 3ds Max to create a very unique story teaching kids that Love and Faith go a long way.
Raising the Awareness of the Power of Love in Today's World As a mother I know how hard it is to raise our kids in today's world, as they are surrounded by constant violent messages and cultural and religious intolerance. Therefore, it is critically important for us as parents to provide our children with the tools and skills they will need to successfully face conflict situations in life.

5.0 out of 5 stars "In the existence of love, miracles happen" August 19, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The fantasy story brings back memories of Alice falling down the rabbit hole in Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, then seeing all kinds of amazing things. In "Aletheia, the Magic Butterfly," Lamed, a young prince, has equally incredible adventures when he's sent off on a mission to save his planet's people. He encountered many marvelous magical things on his journey, but he was also in danger, with his uncle Dolos trying to thwart him at every turn. Would he be successful in time to save the planet, or would his evil uncle win?

The story has some splendid characters, including the girl/butterfly Aletheia, who helps Lamed complete his mission. There's plenty of suspense to hold a youngster's attention and pique their imagination. The color illustrations are some of the best I've seen in a children's book. This is a longer story than many of the children's books I've reviewed, so for bedtime reading, a chapter a night (there are six chapters) would be about the right length and would keep a youngster in suspense after each reading.

I read the book for free with my Kindle Unlimited subscription.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Tale, But Not For Young Kids September 17, 2014
Format:Paperback
I recieved a complimentary copy of this book to review. This is actually the first complimentary book I have reviewed on Amazon. Although I'm offered many books- most aren't really my style and I pass them over. This one, however, caught my eye- because it's a children's book and I have book-loving kids.

I have two girls, ages 8 and 10, who I thought this book would interest. I also have an 8 year old boy- but this isn't his style. With that being said, the book kind of ended up being none of my kiddos style. Does this mean it was a bad book? No. It just has a few flaws that doesn't necessarily make it interesting for them. I'll start on the negatives and end on the positives.

A quick overview:
This story follows the journey of a prince, Aletheia (a magical butterfly creature), and the evil doer who wants to destroy both the Prince's and Aletheia's world. Hatred is the bad in this story, and love is the good. The Prince and Aletheia represent love and peace- a world of color. The evil doer (Dolos- the Prince's estranged uncle) represents hate and destruction- a world of black and white. Alas, the adventure to 'save the world' ensues, and you'll have to read the book to discover who wins.

Negatives:
-A Bit Too Challenging For Young Readers: First of all, this is a chapter book. Which I did not realize. It's also written in text that is appropriate for readers maybe 13 and older. My 8-year-old and 10-year-old stopped me every two seconds to ask questions about what different words meant. They couldn't read the book by themselves, and when I read it allowed to them, it was still difficult for them to understand. Some parents may like this challenging aspect, but I don't want my kids to feel frustrated while reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellently Written And Engaging Children's Tale. August 27, 2014
Format:Paperback
This is a very intelligently, and stylishly written tale of fantasy that is so popular these days. Personally I don't care much for these fantasy kingdom type stories. But I'm certainly not the audience that its directed at. This book easily filled in two bedtime rituals over the course of the same number of nights. It was an instant hit for both its story that was developed beautifully along the way, as well as even excellent character development that is very rare, or often not even bothered with in children's stories these days. The story is quite long, but totally engaging from beginning to end. The only thing that one may have trouble with as to this book is getting a child to accept that the end of any given chapter is going to be all that there is tonight. This is not a book that is easily put down by either a parent reading it, or a child that is old enough to make it through by themselves. In any event, its one of the best children's stories I have come across in a long time. As an editor by trade, I particularly enjoyed both the brilliant visuals that it presented by the story alone, along with even an enviable amount of wisdom and intelligence that was demonstrated and played out.

If I was going to say anything as to the way of cons with this book, it would be the illustrations. They follow the story very well and are numerous throughout, but done in a very modern, variegated style with little in the way of depth and clarity in my opinion. But once again, I was brought up on Golden Books with very clear colorful characters well defined and recognized. That is not always what is found in children's books today, and the kids I read this too took to them very well. They're used to it, and love it...Overall, one of the best written and thought provoking illustrated story books I have read in a very long time, and I highly recommend it.. : )

A sample book was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review..
