Overview
Lost in the Alps is a beautifully illustrated epic adventure written entirely in rhymed verse. It is the second book in the series: The Adventures of Puff and follows a cat's journey through the rugged mountains of Switzerland. As the adventure unfolds, a curious stranger helps Puff through a precarious situation, compelling Puff to join the quest to free the stranger's family from a remote castle. But to get there, they must first overcome a perilous gorge with nearly vertical cliffs, treacherous rivers with cunning predators, deep moats surrounding towering castle walls—only then to face the most dangerous obstacle of all... It is a story of honor, courage, the value of loyalty in friendship, and the relentless desire to fulfill a dream.

About the author
Wallace Kamens began writing poetry at an early age developing an insatiable desire for the English Romantic Poets and Transcendentalists. Over the years he developed a unique style of weaving mixed meters in rhymed-verse associated with various types of characters in his poems for children. The meters and rhythms were inspired musically with his talent for playing nearly all types of string instruments, particularly the classical guitar, cello, mandolin, bouzouki and taropatch. Touched with a natural sense of rhythm and meter for both writing and music, Wallace became more interested in the music side with the desire to teach and pursued a Music Education degree at Westminster Choir College in Princeton New Jersey, then afterward continued at Elizabethtown College in Music Therapy. Eventually, after traveling around the world studying modal variations in various countries, Wallace found himself in Middleburg Florida, where he owned a successful Montessori school for many years. It's at this point he realized firsthand the power of rhymed-verse and the effect it has on children—and began writing 'The Rainbow Forest' available on Amazon.
