Searching with Sam Widges
On his local & global travels young boy Sam Widges encounters many interesting characters including a flan fan old man & his monkey mate on a itchy desert island, mice on the moon hiding beneath a big chunk of Chinese cheese, a jazzy jungle buzzing with musical bees, a super windy sideways city that was so breezey all the buildings got built at funny angles by mistake! Friendly french folk growing floating fish on an organic farm in a forest, the clever cloud people that live in the skies above a faraway city giving sage advice to all that visit them, all the money in the world hidden in a dusty bank-vault, hypnotic bingle wingle things in a manic market in the tropics, joyous misty mountain dancing circles in Ireland with the fairie folk of the emerald hills, Santa Cruz soul surfing beside gardens heaving with hummingbirds & exotic flowers, mysterious performers parading by a Fuji mountain river walk in Japan & didgeridoo dancing outback aboriginals amongst others. Highly detailed illustrations lead us to discover with Sam Widges what he has always been searching for all this time when he has travelled all around the world seeking his mysterious goal. The red world map at the beginning of the book works like a puzzle for readers to try to guess which page relates to which stopover point in the book on his long distance travel to many different continents of this planet & give young readers an insight into our big planet.

This meditative approach is designed to leave story readers in a peaceful tranquil state of mind ready for a good dream just before bedtime or to feel like they have travelled the world without ever leaving their arm chair. He achieves his gentle realisation at last after much soul searching in the same gentle manner a white feather of peace makes contact with a pool of crystal clear water landing in a slow motion soft bounce...
