Enchantment and Empathy: New Fable “Wonder Shell” Offers Lessons on Kindness and Compassion

In a world often consumed with conflict, a timely fable of grace and understanding is set to capture the hearts of readers. “Wonder Shell”, scheduled for release on May 7th, 2024, offers a gentle reminder of the importance of empathy in this modern world.

Inspired by the captivating legends and shores of southern Wales, “Wonder Shell” introduces readers to the enchanting village of Aberdoethus. After a wish on the seeds of a dandelion, an encounter with an enigmatic sage leads to lessons that will transform the protagonist, Corazinda, and all those around him.

John Harbour pens a poignant tale exploring personal burdens and the profound impact of kindness. And Ukrainian artist Lyubov Malygina’s llustrations lend a dreamlike quality to the narrative.

“This is a fable about empathy, compassion, and grace; about seeing the rocks that others carry. Displaced from Kiev due to war, and while carrying one of the biggest rocks that I can imagine, she has created magical watercolors that truly reflect the soul of the story. As you see the rocks that you and others carry, remember that those rocks need not be an anchor that restrict us from taking flight.

Some rocks can break you, some can hold you back, and there are some that you can transform into balloons that allow you to soar.”

Early Praise for “Wonder Shell”:

“This is an imaginative and whimsical story that promotes kindness and helps to explain the concept of empathy to young readers. A warm and fantastical tale about empathy and kindness. Our Verdict: Get it. ✓” – Kirkus Reviews

“Visionary tale that teaches how compassion can ease life’s burdens. Malygina’s delicate watercolor illustrations are a stunning backdrop for this tender, big-hearted tale, as they showcase the village’s rolling hills and cerulean water. Harbour’s lesson is a timely reminder of the impact grace can have on the world around us.” – BookLife Review
