Peter G. Vu Releases New Children's Book - The Adventure With My Blanky 'Mylar'
Reverend Peter G. Vu has announced the release of his new children's book, The Adventure with My Blanky "Mylar". Scheduled for release by Dog Ear Publishing in late 2019, the book is already receiving rave reviews from readers and reviewers.
The Adventure with My Blanky "Mylar" was written to give Children a sense of adventure, family, and friendship. Most importantly, it shows them how to be good and fight against evil in the world. The best way to defeat evil is with kindness and generosity.
The author was inspired to write this story after watching the news about children being separated from their parents by the new Immigration policy. He thinks that the children must feel extremely scared and sad to be taken away from their families and kept in secret places around America. They do not know the language, the culture, or anyone in the foreign land to make them feel safe and at peace.
"I know exactly how the children who were caught in our recent Immigration mayhem feel and can relate to them and their families. I was one of them, but was blessed to be united with my father and allowed to come to America. I pray that this story brings peace, comfort, and hope to our children no matter what situation they might be in. I also want it to teach them good values and encourage them to unite and stand up against evil and greed in the world. I hope it helps them learn to fight evil with good, meanness with kindness, greed with generosity. For they are the light and future of the world," says Reverend Peter G. Vu.
