GustoSinga

GustoSinga is INTUITIVE, IMAGINATIVE & INSPIRATIONAL. It's an adventure not to be missed! Based on truth but written with imagination, it covers an extreme journey taken by a brave woman from Africa in the 1930's. There is humour and pleasure in every page sharing a positive vibe and excellent communication with animals and people through listening skills.We are all on a journey and the Author invites every reader to join her on this one. It is written to encourage, young people – and the young at heart to embrace the future of our world with a new awareness like never before. May there be new respect for listening to experiential knowledge and to reality in the calls of nature. GustoSinga is an exciting adventure, based on truth and written with imagination. It's about a huge leap of faith made together with a lion cub called Gusto to the other side of the world to meet Singa, the tiger cub. If the elephants can share over continents as they do, may the Author's written words share an adaptability and sensitivity to cultural diversity and an important insight into endangered species, and collectively, our endangered Planet Earth. ‘I can highly recommend this book for ALL ages. The author's love and knowledge of animals shines through strongly and her experience living in Africa, U.K. and Asia contributes extensive local knowledge which excites and educates the reader and provides a memorable setting for the book’s main characters. This is equally matched by her love for humanity and every living thing which infiltrates throughout the book leaving the reader pondering many of life's conundrums. This story is so suitable for today’s fast pace…shared factually and creatively to spellbind every reader. Excellent for a quiet evening read to transport the reader to sunny climes as well as for an adult to share with a child on these cubs’ life journeys, one across the oceans in a plethora of eventualities. ‘Thank you so much Marguerite, for a unique, imaginative experience. GustoSinga links love of the natural world with man’s best and worst. I think it is a valuable allegory teaching youth to look beyond the appearance of things, deeper into the significance. We don’t know the half of what communications are going on with life around us. That’s what’s so tragic. We don’t allow the animals to speak to us, as we are all too busy. GustoSinga highlights learning to reconcile the peacefulness of allowing nature to exist. It is as if there is a competition for space – the animals to be themselves for enriching our lives. Why do we hunt? What makes man kill? Can that be turned around?’ “Story telling has always been the best way to communicate a message, and the message from Marguerite’s latest book is loud and clear. GustoSinga offers a very different way of looking at the animal kingdom from the Attenborough type of documentaries or the Disney cartoons.
