Kind Words

Some kind words people have said about the book…


From the darkness of Christmas Eve to the sun-filled banks of the Delaware River this author, David Child, takes the reader away from the humdrum and into a fanciful light.

A world of reciprocated good deeds and love is illuminated as being a site of unexpected adventures. The reader will enjoy the twists and turns of believing and caring; taking them from predictability to unreachable zones.

In this Santa’s realm you must forget the reigns; you will be steered.

WOW! I opened the mail and just thought I would glance at a couple of pages then read the rest after dinner. It didn’t happen! Like a sliding board in a park you can’t stop until you reach the end….and then you want more.

TV, movies, books and even conversation have things in common; repetition and boredom.

Your book goes back to a tried and true formula; IMAGINATION. What a novel approach. It’s a book where I was not peeking for the ending, but enjoying the trip, not wanting it to end.

Great job David, you should be very proud.
