Princess Sarah, a beloved member of the Association of Nigerian Authors, ANA, Enugu branch and Enugu literary society. She’s Founder, of The Pencrafters and Influencers Network society, The Pins, and a renowned author, has recently released a new children’s book titled “Lily and the Secret Garden.”
In this book, Princess Sarah weaves a magical tale of adventure, friendship, and the transformative power of nature.
The story revolves around a young girl named Lily, who moves to a new house in the countryside with her parents. Feeling lonely and isolated in her new surroundings, Lily discovers a hidden garden that has been locked up for years and becomes determined to uncover its secrets.
As Lily spends more time in the garden, she encounters a variety of creatures that seem to have a magical quality to them. With the help of her new found friends; a talking rabbit, a grumpy gnome and fairy, Lily learns that the garden was once a beautiful and vibrant place, but it fell apart because of evil.
Determined to bring the garden back to life, Lily took it upon herself to help her new friends and together they embarked on a journey of discovery and adventure to find the heart of the garden, encountering challenges and obstacles along the way. Through their efforts, they ultimately found the heart of the garden and succeeded in restoring the garden to its former glory, bringing joy and happiness to themselves and the villages around in the process.
The story of “Lily and the Secret Garden” is both engaging and uplifting, but it also carries a deeper message about the importance of nature, our connection to it and love in humanity. Princess Sarah has always been an advocate for developing children’s talent, and her new book reflects that commitment.
In an interview with a prominent children’s literature magazine, Princess Sarah shared her inspiration for the book: “As a child, I spent a lot of time outdoors, reading, watching fantasy children’s movies, writing and imagining a world where love leads. Those experiences had a profound impact on me, and I wanted to share that love of nature with a new generation of readers.”
The themes of the book are especially timely given the current state of the environment. Climate change, pollution, and deforestation are just some of the pressing issues that threaten our planet, and Princess Sarah hopes that her book will inspire young readers to take action to protect the natural world. Also judging from the fact that children are hardly paying attention to their natural talent, Princess Sarah hopes that this book will enlighten them to start doing so. Lily wouldn’t have found that hidden door in their backyard if she wasn’t a special child. Every child is special but we need to support them to discover it.
“Lily and the Secret Garden” is not just a story about environmentalism and talent discovery. It’s also a celebration of friendship, perseverance, and the power of imagination. The characters in the book are diverse and relatable, and readers of all ages will find something to connect with.
The illustrations by the talented artist, Sarahwrites, bring the story to life with vivid colors and intricate details. From the delicate petals of the flowers to the mischievous twinkle in the eyes of the garden creatures, each page is a feast for the eyes.
Overall, “Lily and the Secret Garden” is a must-read for anyone who loves children’s literature, nature, and stories of adventure and friendship. It’s a book that will leave a lasting impression on young readers and inspire them to explore the world around them with wonder and curiosity.
But beyond its literary merits, the book also has a larger purpose. With the proceeds from the book sales, Princess Sarah plans to establish a fund to support environmental conservation efforts around the world. She hopes that her book will not only entertain and inspire readers but also make a tangible impact on the planet.
In a statement released by her publisher, Kreative Kulture Book publishing, Africa, Princess Sarah said, “I believe that every child should have the opportunity to experience the beauty and wonder of nature. But we also have a responsibility to protect it for future generations. I hope that ‘Lily and the Secret Garden’ will inspire young readers to appreciate and care for the natural world and to take action to preserve it.”
In conclusion, “Lily and the Secret Garden” is a beautiful and inspiring children’s book that combines captivating storytelling, stunning illustrations, and an important message about the environment, friendship and love for ourselves.
