Yay! Celyn's charity book made the semi-final of the Goodreads Choice Awards for best picture book 2012!

Check the book out!

It's a genre-busting tour de force, focused on the age old problem of mouse vs robot, and such environmental issues as poo and ... well, poo really.

This is a picture book that author Mark Lawrence's 8-year-old daughter wrote. All profit from the book goes to the Children's Hospice for terminally ill and life-limited children and as Mark says, "a charity that has provided help for Celyn (and me)."

This is a great story and for a great cause as well. This had me cracking up the entire time. Loved it!

Just wait till you find out what robot poo is. :D



Here's the link to Amazon.

I had the pleasure last week of telling this lovely young author in person how much I loved her book. She was properly humble, then disappeared in a dazzle of flash photography before I could get her to sign my iPad.

My kids have been reading this story, over and over again! Robot poo even became a game the kids made up at the beach! One evening I came back home to find my sons room totally turned upside down, there was mess everywhere, but as it turns out it wasn't his fault! It was the crazy robots! Thank you Celyn for giving my son an amazing story to read and the perfect excuse to mess up his room.

Have you ever wondered what robot poo looks like? Have you ever worried what you might do if crazy robots were pooing everywhere? This is the book for you. And me!

Why are these robots pooing everywhere? GOD, WHY!?

Because...because...they are CRAZY ROBOTS! (Sane robots most certainly do not poo everywhere.)

Who can save the town when these crazy robots retreat to their flying city in the sky and begin dropping poo on picnics and teachers and everything else?

Why, only a magical wheelchair-bound little mouse, of course!

This book is truly great. I'm hoping for a sequel, wherein it is explained in excruciating detail what exactly constitutes robot poo.

My daughter (8) has been reading Wheel-Mouse to her younger brother (5) and they both love it! Robot poo seems to be a favorite as does the speedy Wheel-Mouse herself. Really a lovely story and a playful one that connected well with the kids.

We also had a long chat about cerebral palsy - something that would never have happened without Celyn's story. What cerebral palsy is, what it isn't and the likely impact on life.

"Well, I think that she is an amazing writer and I love her story. She has a n

"Oh no!
Robot poo!"
(My most favourite part from the story)

This picture book came from the imagination of the talented Celyn Lawrence - who at the time was 8, if I'm not mistaken - daughter of Mark Lawrence. Delightful. Hilarious. A great story. It's bound to make you laugh.

Poop-apocalypse on the horizon ?! Crazy Robot's on the loose?! Don't worry, Wheel-Mouse is here to save us all!
Delightful and fun. You don't have to be a kid, to enjoy this story.

Thank you, Celyn!


P.S.

You can buy it on Amazon (Kindle); all profit will go to the Children's Hospice charity for terminally ill and life-limited children. For that money (at least here in Croatia) you can hardly get a regular cup of coffee, so come on ... make buying it on Kindle, your good deed for the day.

This book is made of giggles!

Best dollar for giggles that I've gotten in a while, in fact. For a good cause, too! :)

I would definitely like to read about further zumming adventures!

A short story, written by 8 year-old Celyn Lawrence (and daddy), in a wickedly funny way and with poo everywhere! What's more to love than that? I'd say the fact that it's a really cheap e-book and that all profits will go to charity. So what are you waiting for?

I bought this to read to my four year old, and we both loved it! It was funny and heart warming, the author is definitely a chip off the old block, she has a wicked sense of humour like her father! I hope that Miss Lawrence brings us further adventures in the world of Wheel-Mouse, zummm!

A pooptastic tale!

You'd be a crazy robot that poops on everyone's day not to enjoy this awesome little read. Comes complete with strong female lead who thinks fast and saves the day! Awesome all the way <:3 )~

Really cute. I like how not all superheroes come in the conventional type. And really, saving us from poop bombs out of the sky? that is the best kind of superhero.
Love where the proceeds are going and the creative process. Go Celyn!

Celyn you little genius! Loved wheel-mouse and the power of zumming. Put the biggest smile on my face and I'll be reaching for it when I need cheered up. Kudos to Mark for taking direction and illustrating this lovely little book.

My 5 year old daughter cracked up! Poo on nearly every page. Surprisingly, my wife even chuckled, albeit with a frown. Who's to judge comedic brilliance? Buy this book now! It's for charity :)

A clever and heartwarming tale, of poop and robots and overcoming adversity. The author is a visionary, and this is a book I will love to share with my children someday.

This story is awesome, the drawings are brilliantly done, there's poo everywhere and mention of chickens. What more could you want out of a kiddie book?
