PRLog - Oct. 30, 2012 - San Francisco, CA – (October 2012) – Failures shouldn’t be fatal. And, they shouldn’t be final. But, for Rayfil King Wong’s family, they sadly were. “My cousin committed suicide. He looked at failure as the end. I was devastated. My cousin was gone! It was so painful, and I then made a decision to help others. I wanted to write a book to encourage children that failure is not the end, but an opportunity to begin again but more intelligently the next time around. I hope that children will read the book and understand that life is about persevering through challenges and through this journey we learn more about ourselves”, shares Wong.
The story is a journey of a unicorn named Trot who was forced to leave his home in order to save his family farm. With this story, Trot learned to have faith, believe in his self, conquer his fear and defeat all evils that disturb him. From ridicule to failure, Trot learns skills to draw upon strength of and within him to overcome and to reassess and move forward.
According to Matt Fleming, managing editor and books editor for Time Out Hong Kong, The Brave Unicorn is rich in “Great characters, great story, great read, great fun!”
Instead of looking for that hero from the outside, The Brave Unicorn, creatively helps students look to what’s inside them and be able to save themselves from tough situations, bullying, cyberbullying, failures and temptations.
