Melisa's Book
My Dog

My daughter wrote and illustrated this picture book when she was eight years old. 

Guardian angels are being turned into bubbles! Join Alison and her pets—a golden retriever, a deer, and a mouse—as they cross forests, hike mountains, and climb rainbows in order to find God and help the angels. An adventurous, mythical journey! 

Angel in a Bubble is available in ebook and paperback. This would make a lovely gift for children to encourage their writing and story-telling skills. Available from the publisherAmazonB&N, or by order from all brick and mortar bookstores.
"Nine-year-old Melisa has written a delightful and imaginative story young readers will enjoy. The wonderful illustrations bring to life this enchanting tale of a young girl who meets her angel and helps to free her from a bubble. A wonderful lesson in the importance of helping others in need. Hopefully we all have an angel watching over us." --Christina Lewis, Kid's Bookshelf

"Nine year old Melisa has created a thoughtful story for children. Her bright illustrations done mostly in watercolors and ink make a real splash on the pages of her book. She captures the imagination of young children in this delightful story that might get you to wonder, where is my angel? Will I ever meet him or her? A promising writer/illustrator, Melisa's debut book is one the entire family can enjoy!" --Jennifer Reed, Editor, Wee Ones Children's Magazine

"How refreshing to read a story filled with encouragement and determination to reach a goal... A delightful and spiritually encouraging story filled with illustrations drawn by the young author. At such a young age, Melisa shows great promise as a writer. I highly recommend this 28 page book to one and all, regardless of age, to enjoy and reflect on Melisa’s message to open our hearts and help a person in need. I'd also like to acknowledge and extend kudos to Guardian Angels Publishing for allowing our young muses an avenue to express themselves through writing." --Lea Schizas, Muse Book Reviews
