Asylum: A story by Ian Lahey, illustrated by Hauke Vagt

by Ian Lahey

An asylum for unwanted children, a strange doctor and a mystery at the core of it all.


by Valerie Kerr

“First Piano Lesson for Tiny Tots.” In order to learn the methods used in the book for teaching piano music it is not necessary to own a piano at this stage. Be sure to click on the YouTube video at the end of the book to listen to the song.
Three year old twins, Tshepi and Sipho, receive a gift of a piano from their father.. Realising that small children have a natural ability to soak up and store information, their mother spends quality time with them, teaching them the names of some keyboard notes in an interesting and fun way, at the same time developing visualisation skills. She uses the same method to teach them about the stave on which music is written and how to read a few notes.
This book will help young children to develop an interest in playing music and with this basic understanding allow them the freedom to choose to eventually study
music if they enjoy it. An understanding of music will also help them to be able to listen intelligently to performers playing music. The author felt that the fact that young children have the ability to learn and retain knowledge in their early years, they could develop a love for music through a story book of this type.
Valerie has spent many years successfully teaching music to people of all ages and felt inspired to share her knowledge with impressionable young children at home as well as children who attend pre primary, primary and nursery schools. Her aim is to write further books in this series which will steadily become more advanced with the added benefit that children could become interested in playing other instruments as well.
Knowledge builds on knowledge.

The minds of children is likened to a sponge. The ability to be able to visualise is very natural to the young mind.
Learning anything worthwhile at a young age is remembered for a lifetime. As with everything knowledge builds on what is already known.

Music knowledge and understanding can be created early in a child’s life through them absorbing a small amount of information at a time.

As this awareness develops the mind will easily understand the information that will follow the first book
Awareness is created through the Parents, Grandparents or Nursery School reading the story repeatedly to the children at intervals.
It will then be easy for the children to understand the subsequent books.

Not all of us would like to become aspiring pianists but the information found in this book will also develop good listeners of all types of music and instruments.

My inspiration to write the book â??’First Piano Lesson for Tiny Tots
came when two year old
Matthew’s grandmother, Wendy
told me how he loved music.

Wendy asked me if I taught music
to children of his age. I told her that
I didn’t teach very young children.

Children like to have books read to
them more than once.
I realised that because of this they
could easily develop an
understanding for music through books.

The After

by Leot Felton

New Year’s came and went, and with it went America. Now all that remains is… THE AFTER.

When a grassroots “Stoppage” movement succeeds in banning money, the civilized world quickly crumbles as looters and rioters claim for themselves the products that can no longer be bought. Within days gas stations run out of fuel, truck drivers abandon their freight on the side of the road, and trains stop running. Even airplanes begin to crash on the landing strips of airports as cascading power outages sweep over the nation leaving air traffic control towers to go dark. Last of all, the phones go dead and the local TV and radio stations stop broadcasting as their backup power runs out.

Those who manage to endure the first few days only succeed in postponing their suffering. Without a supply chain of new goods coming into the cities the remaining supplies dwindle rapidly. Governors call upon the National Guard to keep the peace, but amidst the chaos of hundreds of thousands of people clamoring for food and supplies the military units disband almost as quickly as they arrive. Now, with no rule of law, all that anyone has is what they can secure for themselves and are able to defend.

THE AFTER are the journal entries of a teenage boy who manages to escape the city with his family to find shelter in a cabin in northern Wisconsin. His journals are discovered in the late spring of “Year None” during a routine census conducted by the Inventory Takers from the recently reestablished, nearby town of Lake Lowery. Inside they find that his testament is more than just a simple retelling of one family’s struggle to survive in a hostile new world. For written in his diary is also a secret. One so powerful that it could undermine all that Lake Lowery has endeavored to do in its attempt to restore a sense of order in their community. It is a secret that, if revealed, could destroy the last known refuge of hope left in THE AFTER.

THE AFTER is Leot Felton’s premiere Coming of Age Story about a boy becoming a man in a post-apocalyptic world. Written as a first person diary narrative from the prospective of a teenage boy, the expectation is that it will prove to be an easy read for those who long for strong character development in their Young Adult literature. With each entry, our protagonist begins a short new chapter that intimately journals a character driven account of a common struggle set in an uncommon world.
