Melbourne Mums Group HQ received a whimsical children's book to review; The Adventures of Faithful Horse Helen by Uncle Buzz.

The Adventures of Faithful Horse Helen by Uncle Buzz


Self published by Perth based author, Basil Anfuso aka Uncle Buzz, and illustrated by Monique Wilson, The Adventures of Faithful Horse Helen is a collection of short tales, which all stem back to a mystical animal.

The book takes you back to traditional narrative, following the lives of The Rand family living in the mountains. Think log cabins, park rangers, bears, and outdoor picnics.

Without giving too much of the story away, the family stumble upon a beautiful wild horse one day, an equine mare with a vivid yellow and blue quiff. It becomes apparent that Faithful Horse Helen, as the children in the story call her, possess a special gift that she uses to help out others in danger.

Faithful Horse Helen is the protector of the region, and disappears as quickly as she arrives. At the end of the book, the horse heroine meets a pair of suspicious characters, who see fortune in Faithful Horse Helen's powers.

What will become of Faithful Horse Helen? That, is up to the readers of the book, and your child's idea could be used in the sequel. The Adventures of Faithful Horse Helen is left open-ended, ready for The Return of Faithful Horse Helen suggestion ideas to be emailed in.

Pick up a copy of The Adventures of Faithful Horse Helen by Uncle Buzz online for $25 via www.unclebuzz.com.au and take your children back to a time of fabled fiction and imaginative storytelling.

Suited best to kids age 6 plus.
