This book is written with a tender humor and a genuine compassion for the importance of the feelings and emotions of a child.
The Kindle Book Review

This little book is like iced tea on a hot day. It changes things inside of you.
Joyce Faulkner, Author of “In the Shadow of Suribachi,” “Losing Patience,” “For Shrieking Out Loud,” and “USERNAME.”

There is so much love echoing through these stories — love of family and love of nature — they are a joy to read.
Barbara Alfaro author of “Mirror Talk”

This is a book you will want to read again and again, particularly aloud to those who are important in your life.
Inge Meldgaard author of “A death in the Making” and “The Cicada”

R. Garcia, the writer who is also known by his pen name “Phantomimic,” brings you “The Sun Zebra”, which is best described as a children’s book for grownups. Its aim is to encourage us to discover (or rediscover) the amazing things that children and their magical carefree world can teach us, even as we try to teach them about the harsh realities of our own. The book is a collection of five stories that follow the “adventures in living” of an unusual little girl named Nell, her mother Rhonda, and Nell’s father who is the narrator of the stories.

I loved these stories because they are a reminder of what’s important in life: the bonds we have with our family and friends and the incredible magic of children.
Ingrid Ricks author of “Hippie Boy”

The stories are pleasant, funny, and delightful to read, but you quickly discover that they go much deeper than you anticipated when you first began reading them.
Robert David McNeil author of “Iona Portal”

Buy this book and you too will feel the sun shine on you in a new and different way. I promise.
Laura Novak author of “Finding Clarity”

My Review



i found this book of short stories nothing less than fantastic. Rolando did a superb job of giving the reader a glimpse of the world through the eyes of a child. There are just two things wrong with this book…it is not available in print form, so i can’t pass it on, or put it in the library, and it wasn’t long enough. Thank you Rolando for giving me the opportunity to read it, and review it!
