This is a children’s book you don’t want to miss

I can’t recommend Something Unfamiliar enough. It’s so cool how the author takes real experiences and real fears he’s encountered with his son and pushes them into the fantasy realm. The story is framed in the age-old “afraid of the dark” conflict that I believe everyone has experienced at one time or another. But the facing of said fear and the resolution the characters in the book find is heart-warming and tender. This story will have you laughing one moment and fighting back tears the next. It’s full of imagination, raw emotion, and the positive message that selfless love has the power to turn a dark, dreary landscape into a vibrant colorful masterpiece. I hope you’ll connect with the characters, as I did, and find a little piece of yourself in these pages. And I sincerely hope it’s only the first of many books we are graced with by author Richard Wharton.
