9780595280421: Rosezinda: Riding Rainbows: Riding Rainbows

Rosezinda: Riding Rainbows is a fanciful tale that literally starts out with a 'bang!' Within seconds of being struck by a speeding van, Cora, a plucky outspoken 13-year-old, is taken on the thrill ride of her young life. Arriving in a new reality called 'E' and renamed Rosezinda, she encounters a collection of colorful individuals who take her on a series of hair-raising adventures. This quirky and somewhat edgy story had me hooked from its exciting beginning to the surprise ending. I didn't want to put it down until I had read the last word; even then, I found myself turning the page, wanting more. The evocative imagery and eccentric characters are worthy of a Spielberg movie (especially the wonderful 'basketball game,' which is unlike any basketball game the reader could ever imagine)! "Though the story's intended audience is children-who I believe will be entranced by it-it may be enjoyed on multiple levels by older readers. Parents may wish to read Rosezinda: Riding Rainbows with their children and discuss some of the provocative questions it brings up. I'm anxious to read more of Rosezinda's adventures! I applaud Parker on his originality and creativity."-Linda R. Thompson, Ed.D., Director of Student Support Services, Harding University, Arkansas"John Parker's book is exciting because it includes the things that are important in life. When I grow up, I will make a movie out of it if there isn't one by then."-12-year-old Alex in grade six, Vancouver, BC."Parker has created a wonderful magical world that is totally against the readers' perception of reality, but which seems entirely plausible."-Monique Trottier, Raincoast Publishers"I predict that Rosezinda will become a classic."-Dr. Jennifer Hurd, Senior Consultant, Houghton Mifflin"I can size Rosezinda up in one word: BRILLIANT."-R. Rudolph, Harmony House PublishersMore Praise for
