The Midas Tree by Lesley Phillips (53)

Joshua lives in the Garden Of Color and Light, an idyllic paradise where he is always playing and having fun. Each day is like any other, until he finds a magical golden acorn that enraptures him and propels him on an incredible adventure. 

After being guided to chase the acorn as it flies through the garden, Joshua discovers a door at the base of a tree, and once he enters his life changes forever.

Joshua is transported into a mysterious realm within “The Midas Tree.” 

Desperate to return home, he sets about exploring this unfamiliar environment. He encounters sticky situations and meets wily characters along the way. Fortunately he does not have to face them alone. His guides are the mystical creatures that live inside the tree, called Devas. They are keepers of ancient secrets that can help Joshua to cope with the obstacles he encounters and the challenges he meets. 

This spellbinding story overflows with challenges, magical creatures and mystical superpowers, which you too will discover along the way. 

“The Midas Tree” is a spiritual adventure novel aimed at a middle grade to Young Adult audience; although all the adults who have read it like it too. 

The Midas Tree is a book of light that offers techniques that can help all people cope when they are going through difficult times in their lives; as well as illuminating the path to personal enlightenment in a fun and entertaining way.

Dr Lesley Phillips says her path is to empower others to take charge of their lives by teaching them to meditate and develop their intuition, healing ability and creativity. She wrote her first book, The Midas Tree, because she wanted to make learning how to meditate fun for everyone, including kids. Lesley grew up in the UK and Australia and has lived in Canada since 1998. Before becoming an author and spiritual teacher, she was a biologist and a business woman.






REVIEW:
Cute.
Though told to be a young adult book, I actually find it acceptable middle-grade reading. 
A story about a different kind of fairy basically, called Deva, and my impression of Mother Nature... A.K.A. Morfar, and this boy's journey in a magical place.
Did I love it? No, but I did think it had something special about it. These lessons Joshua learned throughout. Really well-crafted and stuff you would want your kids reading.
The end of this book is what I could have had come together better. It felt rushed and not quite complete. At least no lessons were waiting to be completed, so that made the ending bearable, but not lovable.
Not bad for a debut book though! I'd read more by this author.

3/5

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers.
