5 Star Review for Space Ranger Fred and the Shoelace Adventure

5sbFor what it is worth, I enjoyed the story immensely. There is something about a children’s tale, with all its purity and innocence, that makes for a refreshing take from the works meant for adults. And this particular work contains that singlemost desired trait in all children’s literature:

It was written for children to encourage them to read, and it managed to convince me that the author meant exactly this – no strings attached. It was written foremost with the author’s own children in mind (as I am led to believe from the dedication page), and the injection of hope in so very few words and in such a simplified form positively bursts at the seams with what could only have been every loving emotion mined from the depths of the author’s heart. I hesitate to call it love, for love for one’s children is broad and universal. What I will call it is soul. And this story has plenty of it, more than enough to spare and share. Read More…

5 Star Review for Space Ranger Fred

Space Ranger Fred and a Charity Book Drive

On 30th April Matt Newnham and Space Ranger Fred supported Tygerberg Book Angel’s 4 kids and donated copies of Space Ranger Fred and the Shoelace Adventure to be used on Book Trolleys in Tygerberg Children’s Hospital, Cape Town.

Getting Children to read is one huge part of the Space Ranger Fred series of books but if the book can help a sick child then another thing altogether has been achieved. Giving books to those in need is so much a part of writing the books.
