The release of a magical new children’s storybook

The release of a magical new children’s storybook

The long awaited “The Family Tree of the Rainbow” is soon to be released. It is the first in a series of wonderful stories bought to you by Ancient Whispers Publishing. This magical tale, beautifully written by Raymond Ruka and illustrated by Libby Rudolf, also comes with a CD read by the storyteller himself, Raymond Ruka.

“The stories are a gift from the Grandmother of an Ancient Peace Nation of a magical faraway land called Aotearoa” says Raymond Ruka. “They are a gift to all the children of the world, both young and not-so-young, in the hope that the beauty and wonder of their dreams will always remain magical, mystical and wonder-filled”.

“It’s also a way of making sure the knowledge and history gets passed on to our children and doesn’t get forgotten. The story is just beautiful, the CD is great for bedtime, it’s so relaxing. I’ve read the next two stories and can’t wait to see them in print as well!” - Tanya
