Brighty's Special Gift by Dee Wallain - Spotlight and Giveaway

Usually, the books I would read from Meryton Press are JAFF (Jane Austen Fan Fiction, stories inspired by the great lady’s work) but today I have a different type of book from Meryton Press, a Christian children’s book. Read on for more information on this book, and a chance to win a copy.

Book Cover: Brighty's Special Gift by Dee Wallain
Book Blurb:
In the early days of the universe where it is cold and dark with zillions of stars, Brighty feels completely alone. He has no one to play with or talk to. The other stars taunt, torment and bully him because he is strange and different from them.

Brighty is hurt by their teasing. He thinks he cannot take it anymore; he loses all hope. After crying out in the big, black darkness for eons, something wonderful happens just in time . . .

Brighty’s Special Gift is a parable for children of all ages with a special Christmas connection written by Dee Wallain and illustrated by Wendy J La.

Author Dee Wallain
About the author:
Dee Wallain lives in Richmond, Virginia, the happiest city in America, with her husband, Jim, and Wally the rabbit. They laugh together every day, mostly because they like to have fun. Ordinary life is full of comical things; they laugh at themselves and especially enjoy the antics of Wally. He showed up on Easter Sunday, a runaway domestic rabbit who chooses to live in the “wild.” He knows his name, comes when called for meals, and entertains the neighborhood with his “sightings.”
