Find hope, embrace positivity and take courage to bring out the best in one’s heart.

When everything is lost in an instant, where and how can one find the strength to continue to exist? What is there to look forward to? Is there something good left from the remains of what was once a thriving village.
In the book, “The Yellow Flower,” the author, Ann Stalcup, tells an inspiring tale of a boy whose vulnerable heart found a spark of hope and courage in a yellow flower growing on the rock wall of what was left of the village’s church tower. Prior to the discovery of the flower, the story initially accounts the devastating event that happened in the small Mexican village in the 1940’s and how the village was covered by raging lava from a volcano that rose suddenly and unexpectedly from the bare ground. It was unimaginable. It’s wrath buried the entire area leaving only the church tower exposed above the  lava.
Years later, a lone yellow flower growing on a wall inside the the church tower, inspires  determination and strength in a village boy giving him something to live up to: to be positive and more open in embracing the best that he can become. This book certainly not only showcases a great story but it also presents valuable lessons and human attributes worth emulating.
“The Yellow Flower” is a good book addition that one can read, enjoy and share. It contains the elements that make an excellent novel for children.
“The Yellow Flower” will be displayed in the coming 2018 New York Rights Fair on May 30, 2018. Be there and grab a copy!

About the Author
Ann Stalcup was born in England, in the small town of Lydney, in the county of Gloucestershire, right next to the South Wales border. Soon after her fourth birthday, the Second World War began. It was a strange time for her to be a child. Although she lived in the countryside, a long way from the cities that were badly bombed, their lives changed in many, many ways. She is a primary school teacher with a passion for travel, art, music, and picture books. After teaching in England and Canada, she moved to California in 1963 and has been writing ever since. She has eighteen published books and over one hundred magazine articles, all for children. Most of her work is inspired by her extensive travels with her teacher husband. Two of her books are a biography of a well-known local artist/storyteller, and an autobiography based on her wartime childhood in England. Both work equally well for both adults and children.
