Kevin and Caroline venture into a deep, dark legendary cave. Their very unusual find will change their lives forever.

The story of a giant cupcake that, according to legend, every day changes to a new flavour, the one from yesterday disappearing,
HAHA RAIN: VOLUME 1: BOOK 3 - DON'T GIVE CANDY TO BUBBA WASHINGTON on the other hand is more of a fun, adventure story that features a unicorn ... and let's face it how many of us can resist a unicorn and especially a unicorn who, though they don't have any secret powers as such, does 'make rainbow poopy'?

'Kids books, that also seem to be really enjoyed by adults as well' according to the author, Charles C. Martin, the stories of which there are five in volume One (, Floofy the Flooferton, Don't Give Candy to Bubba Washington, Queen of the Honkites and Cloud Riders) are indeed 'a little edgy and sometimes just plain old crazy!' 

Whether or not the stories prove to be to your taste or not (personally they were very much to my liking) if nothing else ...

That the pages are of different colours (sometimes just plain old white, at other times, purple or black or ...), that the illustrations are made up both of actual photographs AND emojis AND cartoon like imagery, that different fonts of different colours and sizes are employed ...

These are books that look exciting and new and something that bit different; these are books that children are actually going to want to pick up and read.

SUMMED UP IN A SENTENCE ... Books that should entice the most reluctant of readers; such is the creativity that has gone into the writing of them.

My sincere thanks to the author who sent me four copies of his books, these two from volume 1 along with another two, The Spooky Spook and Don't Give Candy To Bubba Washington 2, from volume 2 which I shall be sharing my thoughts on soon.

These sound quite clever and unique. Rainbow unicorn poop? Wish my dogs had rainbow poop... it would make scooping the back yard a little more fun!

I look forward to hearing about the other two volumes.

Unicorns are very cool. I have always been fascinated by them. Of course they would go in rainbows.
