A 12 year old boy, Noah, goes to the zoo with his mother and father and is swept away on a seven continent fantasy adventure. He sees dozens of animals and learns about them in their true habitat. His guide and personal docent, Manny Meercat, teaches Noah about the animals’ lives. He also teaches him about the possibilities in life and how to grieve for his brother’s recent death. The story and content in “Noah’s Adventure” contains threads from the author’s own life and history. It is an emotional personal account in many ways for the author and it is in the same genre as Antoine De Saint-Exupery’s “The Little Prince” and Astrid Lindgren’s “The Brothers Lionheart.” This mid-grade children’s book will attract readers from age 7 to adult.
