The BookViral Review:

A welcome addition to the many writings of Dr Marlene MD, ‘Happy Ever After- A Pandemic Tale’ presents an engaging reading experience for children with an intriguing setting that accessibly communicates the reality of the pandemic in a non-threatening understandable way for young children.

Through her two endearing protagonists, Timmy Turtle and Speedy Seagull, who-both affected by the pandemic but in different ways struggle to cope with its reality, Dr Marlene provides young ones and their carers with an opportunity to explore their own feelings in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, along with an understanding of its wide-reaching effects.

With her exceptional ability to present complicated concepts simply, she uses an extended metaphor, already familiar from a previous story, in the form of rainbow unicorns and their quest to locate magic dust to cure the pandemic.

Whilst waiting, Speedy Seagull loses his usual ‘zoom superpower’ from contracting the virus, and Timmy Turtle becomes sad and lonely. However, with a little magical unicorn dust and a great deal of cooperation, the pandemic is conquered and normal life resumes, complete with French fries for the hungry seagulls.

Illustrated to reflect the emotion of each character and draw you into their world beautifully, ‘Happy Ever After- A Pandemic Tale’ supports the development of reading comprehension through meaningful detailed imagery which connects perfectly to the story.

Dr Marlene’s quest to bring medical knowledge, healthy living and mindfulness to her audience is supported excellently by this new offering, which encourages engagement with reading by presenting information in a fun and interesting way. Rich varied language with elements of challenge support the storyline but are presented in a relatable form, thus creating a positive reading experience which is developmentally appropriate.

Dr Marlene completes her educational book with hands-on activities such as colouring pages and ‘Happy Talking Points’ which provide the perfect plenary for learning.

A great pedagogic book with a practical and reassuring message, ‘Happy Ever After- A Pandemic Tale’ is highly recommended.

Political Satire Fiction

With its acerbic narrative perspective, dark humour, and even its absurdity it’s hard to deny the ever-present element of plausibility in Tales of American Idiocy that makes it quite terrifying and at the very least a damning indictment of America’s political players and society itself.

Dealing With Rejection For Authors

As writers, we knowingly place ourselves in a position where we will undoubtedly face more rejection than the average person and it seems to me that how we handle that part of the creative process is often key to our success.
