THE MAGIC ROCK
"Oh Magic Rock. Oh, Magic Rock. I Wish For..." This is a story of a small rabbit who finds a beautiful rock one day while taking a walk. He decides to take the rock home to show his mother, not realizing that it is a magical rock which has the power to change his life. A seek-and-find book, young readers are encouraged to search for a hidden 'Mr. Fox' on each page.
George Vouros was born in Washington D.C. to an American mother and Greek father. From a very early age, the author's father taught him the importance of integrity and strong family values. Upon turning eighteen, the author served time in the U.S. Military and then went on to work in real estate and the water park business on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. He now enjoys spending time with his children and grandchildren, who are the inspiration for his stories.
“The story of The Magic Rock was a bedtime story I created in 1984 when my first child, Christina, was only three years old," says George. "Three more children followed over the years — Andrea, John and Alexis — and they all loved the story. I have also had the pleasure of telling it to my first grandson, Addison, who enjoys it as well. Through the story of The Magic Rock, I wanted to instill in my own children to be respectful to their parents, to share with their loved ones and to make peace with their enemies. Overall, I wanted to teach them the importance of having integrity in their lives. It was my children’s love and inspiration that created this story. And it is with their love and encouragement that this story turned into a book for my grandchildren. It is my hope that your children and grandchildren enjoy it as much as mine do."
An artist from Charlotte, North Carolina, Jeni Kubicek's dream has always been to use her art to illustrate stories for children. Jenny states, "I am so grateful for the opportunity to be part of this book and hope that you enjoy the story."
