Amazon - Diane Rapp
When Hiren Patel visits his grandparents in India, he isn't prepared for a strange world filled with magic and mystery. This charming "fable" is told from a young boy's point of view and allows the reader to share his adventure into the mystical realm of the Far East. Hiren encounters exotic creatures, a forbidden jungle, and a ghost that haunts the eerie palace, everything to excite the imagination of a frightened boy. He disobeys his grandfather and wanders into the jungle, where he's nearly s

This story was magical. And it teaches a lesson about another country that most of us have probably never been to. It takes us on a journey to India in depth including the cultures of India. I can't wait for hopefully more stories following Hiren!!

I was asked to review this book by the author, and I'm honestly happy that she approached me because I absolutely loved this book!! I loved the cover of this book, because if anyone knows me, they know that I have a huge soft spot for tigers. Anyway, in Hirens Magical Adventure, Hiren is sent to India by his parents to stay with his grandparents for the summer, to learn to appreciate his heritage. Before Hiren went to India, I sympathized with him, because it just seemed to me as if he really di

I had heard about this book and I finally read it last night- all night- I could not put it down. It seems lately the books that I have purchased, based on rave reviews have disappointed. I was so engrossed by this story. I really loved it. I found the story moving and I enjoyed learning something about the culture. It really exemplified the fact that people are really the same. The universal fear of the unknown, leading to bigotry and then ultimately inflicting pain where it is not deserved. Bu

Meet the Author

Kathleen is a speaker, author and bullying crusader. Her books are fun to read and they always have a message of love and acceptance. She enjoys travel & experiencing new cultures. She writes a blog and contributes to various publications.

This is first book in the "Magical Adventure" saga. Her husband, Hiren, is from India. Kathleen spent extensive time traveling throughout India and learning about the culture firsthand. In fact, many scenes in the book are based on Hiren's experiences as a young man.

"This book is important because it is fun to read, full of magic and adventure, but most importantly it has an educational aspect to it. So many Indian families have immigrated and are raising their children in America, yet most Americans know very little about the Indian culture. With ignorance comes fear- from fear comes bigotry. Education is the key to acceptance." ~Kathleen Patel

    Very Informative and Enjoyable

    I was asked to review this book by the author, and I'm honestly happy that she approached me because I absolutely loved this book!! I loved the cover of this book, because if anyone knows me, they know that I have a huge soft spot for tigers. Anyway, in Hirens Magical Adventure, Hiren is sent to India by his parents to stay with his grandparents for the summer, to learn to appreciate his heritage. Before Hiren went to India, I sympathized with him, because it just seemed to me as if he really didn't understand why his family had to be different than any other American families. When Hiren went to India, he stayed with Dadee and Dadoo, which I learned is an Indian tradition as to what you would refer to your grandma and grandpa as. As the story went on, I was super anxious to find out all about the family's secrets and why they were so unaccepting of Dimpi and Pratibha. I loved the fact that this book kept me on the edge of my seat, and kept me wanting more. If you read this book, not only will you enjoy it, but you will learn about the Indian culture, which I appreciated so much.
