“Patricia Furstenberg brings Christmas cheer which will no doubt delight readers and will be perfect for everyone to enjoy during the holidays.

Each haiku is sweet, funny, warm, and bright, offering charming glimpses at the true meaning of Christmas with haikus about Jesus, happiness, family, and the joy that comes from every part of Christmas time, even the morning sun and a cup of coffee.

VONK THE HORSE: Spark, the Bravest Stallion of the 18th Century

Sail the high seas to the end of the 18th century, the middle of winter in the southern hemisphere. When a ship hits a bank of sand near the Cape of Storms (Cape Town), all spectators on land fear for the lives of those on board for the waters are frigid and currents strong.

Vonk the Horse: Spark, the Bravest Stallion of the 18th Century

“The story is told in free verse, with eloquent metaphors and similes to describe the intensity of the storm that raged and the power of the bond between a man and his horse. The power of faith shines through as this one man and his horse confront impossible odds to save as many sailors as possible. This is a powerful story of undying faith against all odds and putting others before oneself, a valuable lesson for readers of all ages.”

“I loved it. It’s an endearing and dramatic story while giving the reader beautiful imagery through words well chosen on every single page. The author made me travel and I very much enjoyed the illustrations interspersed here and there.” (Amazon Reader)

HUBERTA THE HIPPO: Amazing Adventures of a Happy River Horse

Huberta the Hippo is based on the true story of an African hippopotamus that traveled 1 600 km (1, 000 miles) along the coast of South Africa. Huberta left her waterhole in the St. Lucia Estuary in Zululand (now KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa) and set off on a 1,600 kilometres (1,000 mi) journey along south, the Eastern Cape. This journey took her three years, between November 1928 and March 1931.

Huberta the Hippo: Amazing Adventures of a Happy River Horse

“Written in flowing and rhythmic free verse and loose rhyme, Huberta the Hippo paints a picture of a happy animal who enjoys the simple things in life. Though the story is short, I found it engaging on several levels. It made me curious to learn more about Huberta and her history as well as hippos in general. It also provides an opportunity for adult and young adult readers to think about the concepts of happiness, home, curiosity, exploration, adventure, and following one’s dreams.”
