What others say about Mystic Uncle
"Mystic Uncle spans the gulf between youth and age, bridging mind and soul with real magic. Wisdom gleams from each page of this adventure; Winters enchants as he shows us how to travel light." Ethan Fischer, Editor, Antietam Review
"Mystic Uncle And The Magical Bridge is the embodiment of spirit and hope. Mystic Uncle is a wise hero, gentle yet strong, simple yet complex. As he jumps onto the page and into our imagination, open hearted readers, both young and old, will embrace him. We know, as Bobby and Jeremy do, that to journey with Mystic Uncle is to experience life. As the boys grow in wisdom, so do we, welcoming our relationship wit Mystic Uncle, inviting him into our souls too. This story, its interior and exterior, imbues integrity. It extols an honorable way of living that young people and adults intuitively understand and desire." Esther Schneider, Educator
