Millie and Honey

This children's book is fun and enjoyable for children of all ages. It is a great story and the beginning of a series of books, and hopefully a game and cartoon ;)

         


Excerpt

Millie promised her dog Honey and her litters - Salazar, Jasmine, Burt and Blinky a day of fun and picnic at the lake. She kept her word, and they set out trekking at the edge of the forest. As they were getting near the lake, Salazar found an egg-shapped silvery shining vehicle, which, to their surprise, will take them on a journey and adventure beyond their imagination.



Professional Reviews

a fun, adventurous book
This children's book brings together elements of the perfect story for young audiences. Dogs, adventure and fantasy engage the reader throughout the entire story. It is appropriate for all ages as it can be read to the younger children by an adult and is well-written for the older ones.

The relationship Millie, a young teenage girl, has with the dogs can be related to by all pet owners. Waking up to them jumping and kissing her, ready to take on the day is just the start of an action-packed story. When they began a typical walk to the lake and found a large plane-like machine, the adventures start to unravel.

The illustrations accompanying the story bring about a realistic feel to the adventures of Millie and her companions. Having an idea of the size and breeds of the dogs, what their craft looks like, and picturing the amusement park where more adventuring takes place helps to bring the reader right into the book.

Ending with a safe return home and a story to share at the dinner table lends nicely to a "happily ever after" conclusion.

I am anticipating the upcoming second volume.

Millie & Honey and the Incredible Instantaneous Interplanetary Adventure, Vol. II: APPLEOPOLIS

This wonderful book, authored by J.D. Means and very nicely illustrated by Romar Lipana, is a cute fantasy/adventure tale intended for children aged 6 - 12, depending on their reading level. This would also be a great book to read aloud to your non-reading children. A sequel to MHIIIA, Volume 1: Catatonia, Appleopolis picks up the day after the characters' adventures in Catatonia (an amazing planet of felines).

In their last adventure, Millie, her dog Honey, and Honey's litter (Salazar, Jasmine, Burt and Blinky) discovered a "Traveling Machine." In this story they join up with Millie's parents and Rose (the machine's caretaker) to travel to the planet Appleopolis.

On Appleopolis, a planet of intelligent trees, the group also makes friends with the delightful Rags (the Regent of the Agricultural Garden Society), who wears a blue jacket complete with medallions and talks like a pirate. Rags is their own private guide to all the wonders in Appleopolis. The group experiences Apple Bobbing (with a twist!) and the Apple Press ride. They also learn a lot in the Maple Forest and the Cinnamon Grove. An adventure-filled day with lots of fun and learning!

I highly recommend that you add this book to your family library! I also think that someday this series would make an excellent cartoon series (a la The Magic Schoolbus)! The characters are all quite engaging and story is well plotted and executed. The vocabulary is just right - a little challenging (in a good way!) for younger children, but not too baby-ish for the older reader. The ending is satisfying and leaves you wanting to follow along on the group's next adventure.

If you can, I also recommend you get the first book in the series (Catatonia), and I can't wait for the publication of Book #3 - The Blue Angel Planet!
