"Madness dances with brilliance" - a wild rock singer, a lonely white dolphin and other unworldly misfits emerge from their strange stories to challenge a young boy as to why. A gaunt tree leans wearily over them, like a guitar with too many strings. And the Angel leans on her gate, watching. - "Never seen anything quite like this"; "A unique & wonderful manuscript".

"This is not a normal book with a normal story..."

It is the story of a rock singer and the unearthly harmonies plucked from a strange 13-string guitar; and of a bumptious honeybee encountering a strange little man on a planet that isn't there; and a tired, cynical old philosopher conducting a strange debate with a stone in the woods.

It is the story of a shipwrecked sailor, whose pet egg hatches into a strange seagull; and a worn-out, unworldly old lady dying in a strange land where no-one dreams; and a sad, downtrodden gardener tending a Wise Woman's strange, disquieting weed.

It is the story of a lonely white dolphin, and a tree - curiously shaped like a guitar with too many strings.

And of a young boy who discovers - with a little help from an Angel - The Seven Gifts - that came to Earth

"A most unusual and beautiful story"

"This is a book to make you think"

I wrote this book, and the cool guitarist in my teenage daughter's all-girl band says it is her favourite book of all time. Quite a few other folk have said similarly complimentary things, but only on Goodreads. You can see over fifty reviews and ratings here: Goodreads Reviews & Ratings

Get a free copy (Click above links or image) and find out what happened when the music stopped. If you like it, tell your friends. If you would like a paperback of the original version, called The Seven Gifts, then make a comment and get in the draw. If you want to ask me anything here, fire away.

Thanks Judy, for hosting my book today. -- John
