Would you go on a quest for someone you’d just met? What if that someone was an angel? In Melisa Eyuboglu’s debut book, “Angel in a Bubble, ” one little girl sets out to change God’s rules.
Meeting her own angel is a surprise for Alison. Meeting her dog’s angel is a shock too. Alison’s angel accidentally fell into the ocean and was transformed into a bubble as the rules state she must. She wants to be an angel again and asks Alison for help. Together they all set out to the biggest hilltop where a rainbow becomes the path to God. Will Alison convince Him to change his rule? Will her angel be an angel once more?
This delightful book is written and illustrated by nine year old Melisa Eyuboglu. She uses colorful text and drawings to capture the young reader’s imagination. Her story is sweet but also one that demonstrates a willingness to help others. Alison sets out on a quest after getting her mother’s permission, and makes an effort to change what she sees as an unjust rule. This young author shows promise in her descriptive text but also in her ability to portray compassionate characters. If she puts her mind to the quest of becoming a great author, as Alison did to helping her new friend, we’ll be sure to see more from this young lady in the future.
