"JD's Happy Adventures." written by George Stratford, is a delightful children's tale, told through the eyes of 9 year-old Jeshua David, better known as JD. On his way home, he spots a sad looking rocking horse carelessly tossed in a ditch. With the help of family members, JD brings life back into the newly refurbished toy, which he calls Happy.
Unbeknownst to JD, Happy isn't just any old used toy that was tossed into a ditch. Happy is a magical wooden rocking horse, waiting for someone kind like JD to find him.
Together, JD and Happy go on adventures that are not just fun, but, also allow JD an opportunity to help others out of their dire situations.
The message that I would take away from this story is mentioned within the story itself: never judge a book by its cover! From the discovery of a very sad looking wooden toy horse in a ditch, to a final battle with a nasty wizard, JD learns that not everything is at it seems to be. In helping others, JD helps people see a better side of themselves!
Another aspect I enjoy about this story is the location of the story: Davao, Philippines! Although there are many stories, including this one, that take the reader to exotic, magical places, this story begins in an exotic location (or, at least to this reader!)! Not only will readers get to read a wonderful children's story, I have a feeling that there will be those who will be encouraged to also research where Davao is and learn about another culture that may otherwise be unknown to them!
George Stratford's entertaining story is well written for the age category 7-11, but, I think adults would enjoy reading this to a 5 or 6 year-old. Rama Dixit's illustrations always tell a story when you see them without any written word. However, Mr. Stratford's story, and Miss Dixit's illustrations compliment each other beautifully! Well done!
