Have you ever seen a frogephant jump? Do you know what color grink is? Would you like to play leapfrogephant? These are just a few of the adventures that are waiting for you in "The Land of Ashetatom" (Ah-she'-ta-tom), the first story in a series of books written for children. Although primarily a story for children, "The Land of Ashetatom" encourages readers of all ages to think positively about themselves.
Please Note: This book will be best enjoyed when viewed vertically on the eReader of your Choice. We also recommend Verdana for a font selection as it keeps the natural flow of the book as intended by the author. The story begins with a cat named Mittens who doesn't like himself because he has white paws and a silly name. He dreams of being a racoon because he thinks that racoons are beautiful, free and happy. One day he hears a small voice in his heart that leads him to a magical trail which takes him to "The Land of Ashetatom." In the Land of Ashetatom, Mittens makes some unusual friends. These friends, Trixie the hummingburtle and Frampton the frogephant, explain to Mittens that when you accept yourself for who you are, and trust in the voice of dreams you hear in your heart, you are free to become whatever you wish to be. That's how Trixie, a slow turtle who wanted to fly like a hummingbird, becamse a hummingburtle and how Frampton, an energetic elephant who wanted to jump, became a frogephant. When Mittens finally learns this valuable lesson, he becomes a caroon.
