Join Solis and Princess Luna, on an amazing journey through the Earth’s most unusual place: Death Valley. Luna, a princess from a kingdom in a far-away star, is curious to see the sights in Death Valley. And Solis, smitten by Luna’s beauty, is only too happy to indulge her.
They travel through landscapes – from the exhilarating Sea of Sand to the majestic Canyon of Marble to the eerily frightening Mysterious Cave – forming new friendships and gaining a deep understanding of each other.
Meet fantastic creatures – from moving rock formations, to Kiko the talking bird, even mysterious inhabitants of a ghost town – and be with Solis and Princess Luna as they dodge challenges, solve puzzles, craft clever solutions and find a way out of hairy situations.
More important, discover how to love with all your heart, the most seemingly unlovable place on Earth.

TOP FIVE THINGS ABOUT BEING AN AUTHOR
We are first-time authors and what’s important to us is:
Passion that we can share with all our readers, something that gives strength to overcome difficulties and plays in the soul: curiosity about the world. To create book education which speaks powerfully to cross generation, to cross genres, to unite our world with books, to inspire all of us to honor the power of books.
Satisfaction to achieve our goal, to believe in ourselves and never give up. It is wonderful if you give birth to an idea and then you create a plan and finish it from the beginning to the end.
The process can be difficult, but it is worth it.
Joy that we give to children and even to their parents and be able to share it with them. We also are accessible through social media, so we can engage with them in the way that suits our readers best. Hopefully, someday, our book is the one inspiring other potential writers.
Pride, that we are proud of ourselves, and proud that we made our dreams come true, even though it is has not always been easy. Accepting a new challenge and working on it without giving up and despite numerous obstacles.
Fear, and asking ourselves if the book will appeal to children, if maybe we could have written better; more interestingly, whether we achieved our original goal with our ideas. There are always fears and emotions involved in it and we are still learning to meet new challenges. We think everyone can make their dreams come true and reach for the stars that we wish for you all.
Thank you. Dorota and Evan
