Top Customer Reviews
Story telling is the heart of all fiction though sometimes authors tie themselves up in linguist knots and lose sight of the importance of pace and audience involvement in their work. Not so Thomas who pitches his tales and their construction right where the reader/listener will find the most emotional connection.
I received a review copy from the author and recommend Story Tellers: In Pursuit of Happiness without reservation.
Time and time again, I have said that I love a tale that plays with language and words; one that uses an advanced understanding of what it takes to bedazzle readers. As I read, I had no choice but to smile and revel in the manner it all unfolded. From Leprechauns to Celestial beings, rainbows and pots of gold, the quest for immortality to the very nature of humankind, it's a savory tale for anyone that likes to get lost in rich imagination. Great job!
(NOTE: I received a copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review.)
Its uniquely stories are told in a manner that all can relate to very well. They provide great insights on human values.
This book is great for teens, young adults, and even mature readers like myself. If you like great fairytale folklore, then you'll definitely get lots of entertainment and enjoyment out of this book.
If there's one thing I'd change about this book, it would be to improve on the book cover to indicate a more mythical and magical feel rather than the current one. But overall, the book is really a great read.
This book looked great on my Kindle Fire tablet. It has good formatting and layout.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time reading this book, finding myself at times, with introspective and philosophical threads of thought passing through my mind. Have some fun and take a break and get lost again into the wonderment of that imagination that we once had as a child.
I was given a free copy of this book by the author for my honest review.
Talented Author Thomas Jerome Baker has penned a delightful book for all ages full of magic, mysticism, and make-believe. Each tale is expertly told and intertwined with the previous one in order to better explain and teach "Little One" some life experience. He is a rapt audience and absorbs all the information provided. The exchange is so personal that it could be any one of us that the storyteller is talking to...
In my opinion, this author is a present day raconteur who taps into his own imagination and uses his gift to spur on the desire to learn in both children and the young at heart. "Little One" starts off by hearing about Cloud Number Nine "the cloud of Joy and Happiness" which is comprised of "mythical, mystical, magical" elements. "Little One" is also very enamored by the storyteller and readily eats up every word of the stories being told. The storyteller is forever the teacher and adeptly uses the art of questions and answers to reinforce the educational opportunity for the attentive listener. Repetition....response....recapitulation...all great teaching tools for the storyteller to reinforce the learning experience for "Little One". From the Leprechauns who now live on Mother Earth to the celestial children Deucalion and Pyrrha who live on Cloud Number Nine, the reading audience is drawn more and more into the well described magical world found in this wonderful book.
"Story Tellers: In Pursuit of Happiness" is most enjoyable and is sure to bring much pleasure to its young reading audience. Whether folklore, fairy-tale, fact or fiction...Read more ›
