“Carolyn Quan has been known for her incredible blending of photographic images into a unique art form that takes you to another world. The illustrations in her new children’s book “Roshi and the Amazing Fireflies” is no exception. Sumptuous, gorgeous pictures depict the characters in a way that really capture one’s attention. … I think Carolyn knocked it out of the park! I hope that this is the first of more to come!”

It is a perfect book to share with children or as a gift for that special person who is just like Roshi and makes the world a better place because of who they are.

“Roshi and the Amazing Fireflies” is a beautifully illustrated, book! Magical, luminous and enchanting. The message is one of love and acceptance, no matter your color, size, tribe or species or even what you have to give! LOL! It tells of unconditional love and how giving it makes each of us brighter and stronger and happier. The more we give, the better everyone gets, including us. A great children’s book! I bought it for both of my 2 young nieces and I’m sure it’s going to be their favorite book! I look forward to more wonderful books from the sweet-hearted Carolyn Quan.”

“I am so pleased with the uniqueness of this book! Each page is beautiful to behold and the story of Roshi is heartwarming. I read the book to my 2-year-old grandson, Clyde. He honed in on Roshi, exploring the details on each page as I narrated. He has picked this as his bedtime book twice in the last week, asking “Roshi book.” Anyway, I hope there will be more “Roshi books” to come.”
