Vera Nova famously wrote "The world is marvelously designed to be creative." I buy into this whole-heartedly. The author is also quite an accomplished artist and her paintings and drawings add substance to the serious yet disarmingly hilarious and charming characters and incidents. Vera Nova's world is further developed to function in sync as an antidote to our modern civilization or in a parallel line in which a "good Truth" emerges from situations that would be deemed chaotic or even alien to life on earth. In these pages revelry marches hand-in-hand with sensitivity; the impossible is most natural and the beauty and charm of life amongst the Noble Society releases a measure of positivity. This is more than theater of the absurd, it is a commentary on Utopia, a true "wonder-world beyond time, space…" Pay a visit to the Village of Bullford where everything (mostly) works out for the common good, where the surprises of life offer solutions to unsolvable problems – and where Sir Thomas Moore would live happily ever after in the best of all possible worlds. Looking forward to the promised sequel! Victor Forbes Fine Art Magazine, NY

I am happy I have found this rare gem of a book. From the start I was fascinated with the characters that populate the book's pages, who are, it seems, not exactly of this world, but not the disembodied spirits either, who, although human, mingle freely with talking animals and fishes, who relate to each other with old fashioned grace, and whose life is guided by the highest ethical, though paradoxical rules and values. The four short stories that constitute the book create an intricate and sophisticated lace of fantastic happenings and misadventures of amusing characters. Just to tell the story lines would give a reader no idea of what the book is all about, but reading it, taking the journey into the fascinating land of author's fantasy, was a gratifying endeavor. It is hard to place this book into a definite category as it seems to be in a category by itself. I would like nevertheless to share one observation of mine, namely, that the book could have been and may be should have been described as an art book. The text is generously accompanied with the author's black and color illustrations of such artistic quality and originality that makes me feel I have bought two books for the price of one. The illustrations, especially the color ones, gave the book characters the faces and the bodies, which, although not quite subject to the law of gravity, nevertheless tied my imagination closely to that of Vera Nova and with this made my world so much deeper and richer.
