About the Author


My Work

Jeff Blander was raised by his grandparents. They taught him that kindness is the most important virtue to make the world a better place. He has worked in many far-away places and knows that children are our future. He is inspired by his daughter, who is an imaginative story teller, wonderful artist, and fearless explorer. 

Proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to charitable causes supporting sustainable forest restoration and families in need.


Our Community

Inspired by actual events, Maisha’s story is one of love, hope, and activism. It is introduced at a time when the world is faced with a terrible global pandemic. However, like Maisha, Jeff truly believes that the most challenging and difficult times can bring out the best in all of us—that caring and courage creates extraordinary magic to transform the world. 

As an indie author, feedback and reviews are so important. Would love to hear from you and feedback on our story. We are so very grateful for your support. 


Join Our Journey

The journey to complete this book has been magical. Personally, it has provided closure and is a full circle moment with my mom, who went to heaven when I was a young boy. She had started, but never finished a beloved children's book project for me. Completing a similar project many years later with my daughter is truly extraordinary and a healing experience.
