Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Walter Eckland is an odd sort of duck who throws a bunch of words together and then hacks the heck out of them afterwards. Sometimes they align well pre or post the masticating. Sometimes said words align humorously. Once they made someone cry. We don't know why. Most times the words get tossed in an electronic waste receptacle to be reused in a more conventional manor by someone who probably DID pay attention in seventh grade English and did learn about grammar, punctuation and run on sentences while Walter was listening to his ADHD and trying desperately to sit still. . Walter used to spend a boatload of time in airplanes crossing the little pond between the North East of the new world and the old continent. Australian Shiraz fueled much of the word proliferation during that time until Walter switched to Cabernet Sauvignon. . These days Walter does a little repetitive South to North travel path and dusts off some old words and tries to make sense of what ever nonsense he intended at the time. Most of his ramblings fall into silly children's books or old style Science Fiction. One SciFi book involves a fat lady and a Volvo. Walter's first Kindle offering involves a young girl that reminds him a bit of his daughter. There are three more books in the series (so far) and if Walter would stop obsessively reading web stuff about how to get his nonsense novel noticed and trying to convince people to cough up 2.99 American and instead got back to Cabernet and Microsoft Word he could release book two of the whole Corie Universe Feeder thingy. Book three takes a few odds turns and almost makes a point or two. Hang on and give me a second I'm looking for a corkscrew so I can finish this bio.

I am a book editor and read hundreds of books a year, but I simply have to mention how impressed I was with Corie Universe Feeder. I have read it twice, and it was completely enjoyable both times. I have NEVER read anything like it before.

It was so unique, so inspiring in such a strange sort of mind-bending way, right down to the whole idea of a "pickle-and-fish tree" even in the intriguing way the chapters are titled. I was completely drawn in to the story; amazed by the poignant, current information; refreshed and delighted by the quirky and playful style and narration; and inspired by the message of the story in a way I never expected. This book deserves my sincerest accolades for not being cliche, not a carbon copy of anything I've ever read before. The author offers a quirky but intelligent writing style and a gift for storytelling that is amazing. I was so glad to read something new, something from the pen of a rare gem in the writing world.

Truly, one of the best books I've ever read - a little book jam-packed with a huge message. It makes me want to go outside and plant a pickle myself!

I bought this book to read aloud to my eight-year-old daughter, simply because it looked like fun. I was not disappointed. Corie, who plants a pickle-and-fish tree in her garden to help feed the world, is a delightful character, who would appeal to any young girl. Her wealth of ideas and her determination to do the best she can for the cause is inspirational without being at all preachy.

This is not a `normal' book. I expect it would have been passed over by publishers lacking in imagination. The style of writing reminded me a lot of Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The humour is off-the-wall. But it is a great read for young and old alike, especially out loud.

My daughter's reaction to having reached the end is perhaps the most telling commentary of all. "No, I don't want it to finish. I want it to have infinity pages!"

Walter Eckland has created a book through the eyes of a little girl, and it is a wonderful, realistic point of view. As an adult reader, and intrigued how an author can pull this off well, I was very impressed. Corie is adorable, and gets into the same good and bad situations which all kids get into, and she allows us to hear what is going on in her little head, while she is in these situations. We get to share her view on life, on her friends, on her dog, on her two brothers, and on her parents.

A must buy for any young person, or for any parent who still enjoys reading to their little ones. Really well written!

Corie Universe Feeder is a funny book with a style similar to that of The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kinney, only without the comics. Kids will quickly relate to quirky, yet highly intelligent, Corie who has a heart of gold and a mind of her own. I enjoyed the unique style of prose, lists, dialogue and poetical structure. Highly entertaining. A must read for anyone with kids between the ages of 8 and 13.

What a treat reading "Corie Universe Feeder." Corie is an intelligent and whimsical young girl who allows her tangent thoughts to come to fruition and feeds the universe with her pickle-and-fish tree that grows improperly. Corie is a visionary who researches and puts her heart into her idea of feeding the universe with a couple of pickles and some microwaved fish. This is an incredibly fun story for kids of all ages. Walter Eckland does an exemplary job taking the reader through the mind of a young girl and her quest for helping others. Fun and whimsical with a great message.

for all ages, young and old. I couldn't put this book down. It is a great book about a child who has a house, parents, brothers, friends, neighbors and goes through life as most kids do -- getting into trouble, having fun, learning about life -- but who has a message to share with us all, without really realizing you are reading a book with a message. Though it is a bit quirky in the way it is written, which is not your standard for writing a book -- funny chapter headings, repeat chapter titles, written sometimes in bullets -- people of all ages will still enjoy the funny writing style. I can picture grandparents and parents reading this out loud to the children and with the right inflection and tone, can picture children laughing.

This is a super, well written story to be recommended and read with your kids and grandkids. Walter has a wonderful, delightful writing style kids (and adults) will enjoy. Thank you, Walter.

So utterly different to anything I've ever read before, I began reading as though it was a children's book - yet still I was captivated within a few pages. Somehow this story just flows into you - quirky and odd in just the right measure, simple yet not-so-simple... Before I even knew it, this delightful story had me completely enthralled! It has such an uplifting feel, such a positive and happy message, I read it cover to cover in one sitting with a stupid grin on my face the whole time. I heartily recommend you buy and read this unusual book, for you, your children, for anyone! It will leave you feeling great. It might even make you wish you were nine again... For me, it just makes me wish I could write like Walter Eckland. 5 Stars.
