Children love playing pretend. In my opinion there is no better way to do this than to perform a play. Allel Kheroufi has written a wonderful play that is not only fun but is full of lessons. The youngest child can understand on some level that when we try to reach for our dreams that there will be people who stand in our way and tell us all the reason they believe we can’t do it.. Homer personifies everyone young and old who sets a goal in life and goes after it. His mother is like those who support us in our dreams they believe in us enough that when we hit obstacles they are still there for us. This is a wonderful and fun play to be read or performed with your children at home or at school. I am so glad I received a copy from the author or publisher. The opinions I have expressed in this review are my very own. ( )

Homer was a young duckling who lived with his mother Mathilda by Lake Serenity. One evening he noticed the sun setting on the lake. Homer marveled at its beauty. It was then that Homer set out to find the path to the sun and fly out to touch it. Homer's journey is filled with many obstacles. At first, he was too small to fly so he sought out help from King Mortimer of Barnyardia. King Mortimer was a powerful and magical king. He could help Homer find his way. Along the way, he acquired some new and interesting friends. As Homer got closer to fulfilling his dream, he met with yet another obstacle, the elements of nature. As you might imagine, Homer over comes many obstacles, that have kept him from reaching his ultimate goal. He continued to learn, grow and mature into a fine Drake Duck with only one thing on his mind, to fly and touch the sun.

Kheroufi has created a wonderful world with lots of imagination. This four part play is geared for children of all ages. As you can imagine, this story has lots of interesting characters young children will recognize. Young readers will grow fond of the characters drive and motivation. Songs and colorful landscapes will engage young readers. Parents and teachers will be excited to help children act out the scenes and find enlightenment at its end. ( )
