    A Must Read

    Frank's book is fascinating and creative. It addresses issues of greed and war that will captivate an audience of both child and adult. It will leave the reader with a desire to motivate people to cooperate and promote peace. The illustrations are a delight to the senses and leaves you grinning with a joyful heart.

    A Book For Any Age Group, A Message For Everyone

    Frank Swift's message is timely and needed. His illustrations are colorful and entertaining. His insight and understanding is right on. The book delivers the "Power of Peace", and how it can affects everyone!

    more from this reviewer

    Gumblies, Garbles, Gazoopers, and Peace

    The Planet Gazimbo in Galaxy Zamz is a delightful Seuss-like story of aliens, not so unlike ourselves, who learn that war is not the answer to problems. Peace is the better choice. Its rhyming lyrics and whimsical words make The Planet Gazimbo a wonderful read for children. The imaginative illustrations also add to the story. Even adults will chuckle at some of the humor of the text included on the illustrations.

    It's nice to see a piece of children's literature that encourages world peace. If enough children read this book, maybe there will be hope for a peaceful future. I highly recommend it.

    Inspiring and fun for all ages! Highly recommended!

    This book is a treasure! Every family, classroom, and public library should have a copy. The illustrations are delightful and invite the reader to find little surprises on the pages. Adults and children alike are attracted to the rhyming story, which includes a profound philosophy. This book may help our children to become peacemakers, so badly needed in this conflicted world, and increase our peacemaking philosophy as adults. Thank you, Frank, for you many years of spreading peace education in fun ways. Keep 'em coming!

    Yes, I loved this book. It reaches children while keeping adults engaged.

    The wordplay is delightful and the illustrations cartoon perfect. The equal of Dr. Seuss. The rhyming sings along without being "singsongish". I read it to my granddaughters and the 6 and 10 year olds were both rapt. Keeping the characters straight was a little mind game for them and they felt the message as well as understood it. What more can we ask of a book regarding peace? But to delight and teach children and adults alike. I will buy more copies for gifts for families and a teacher friend.

    Power, Greed, War all leads to Peace! Check this one out!

    The author has put together a masterpiece from the views of every person in every nation. He's figured out how to take the Planet Gazimbo with it's zanny characters to reach all readers with a very important message. No matter how, when, or where we are, greed, power, and war seem to follow us. With the examples of a different world, all of this can end in a peaceful solution. We should all read and take notice to achieve what The PLANET GAZIMBO has done! Best to you Froggie! Bugsy

    FANTASTIC...MUST READ...SHARE WITH CHILDREN

    If we could only understand each other! That is the lesson. It can be applied beyond people, but including political differneces. Dr. Swift has demonstrated his deep understanding of differences, but has made it understandable for our youngsters coming up! There are no political undercurrents, just a message of understanding and peace. Excellent thought provoking themes for all!
