A Tale of Serendipity
Part One: The Adventure Begins!
A unique and compelling book, A Tale of Serendipity, is a must for children ages 8 to 12. In this captivating work of fiction, author Rosy Aronson transports readers to a magical place. The tale is an adventure story about a close-knit family of seals that is torn apart by the arrival of a devastating storm and a ship of vicious seal-hunters. While the narrative ostensibly focuses on the fate of five seal pup brothers who have been tragically separated from their beloved and very pregnant mother, this is in fact a story that speaks to the hopes, fears and challenges that all children and adults face in life. And it does so in a way that elicits curiosity and wonder.
For parents of inquisitive kids, the author offers a story that is rich in values that they will want to share. The values explored in A Tale of Serendipity include respect, empathy, compassion, dignity, diversity, integrity, honesty and collaboration. Beyond the lessons to be learned in how to deal with both natural and man-made disasters, the tale is about the interconnectedness of all living beings and the fragile environment in which we all live. A Tale of Serendipity is for parents who "want their children to grow empathy muscles toward themselves, toward people who are 'different' from them, and toward all living creatures." To be sure, A Tale of Serendipity is about a family of seals, but ultimately, it is steeped in the spiritual mysteries of our lives on this earth.
Rosy Aronson is a Berkeley, California-based writer, artist and spiritual counselor. She is the writer and illustrator of A Tale of Serendipity, which is her first work of children's literature, and if her dreams are realized, it will be the first of several in a multi-volume series.
A Tale of Serendipity is available for free as a downloadable ebook, an unfolding podcast, as well as for sale in hardcopy. For more information, please call 510-703-1373, or visit her website at www.SerendipityTale.com
