For the first time ever, Meryton Press has published a book for kids of all ages. Brighty’s Special Gift by Dee Wallain is a parable for children of all ages about bullying and being different. Follow the tour for reviews, guest posts, and a spotlight post.
In the early days of the universe where it is cold and dark with zillions of stars, Brighty feels completely alone. He has no one to play with or talk to. The other stars taunt, torment and bully him because he is strange and different from them.
Brighty is hurt by their teasing. He thinks he cannot take it anymore; he loses all hope. After crying out in the big, black darkness for eons, something wonderful happens just in time . . .
Brighty’s Special Gift is a parable for children of all ages with a positive message for anyone who has felt different than the rest. Written by Dee Wallain and illustrated by Wendy J La.
Dee Wallain lives in Richmond, Virginia, the happiest city in America, with her husband, Jim, and Wally the rabbit. They laugh together every day, mostly because they like to have fun. Ordinary life is full of comical things; they laugh at themselves and especially enjoy the antics of Wally. He showed up on Easter Sunday, a runaway domestic rabbit who chooses to live in the “wild.” He knows his name, comes when called for meals, and entertains the neighborhood with his “sightings.”
