Middling Industries launches Book 2 of animated series "Haee and the other middlings" this Christmas
Critics have labelled this series of books as "grim", "whimsical", "quirky" and "bitterwseet". "The Unconventional Life of Haee" by R.S. Vern is available at Amazon Kindle, Barnes and Noble Nook, iBookstore, Kobo and ilovebooks.com.
Following Book 1, as Haee gets restless with the material comforts at home, he ventures out and meets a middling cat, Whie, in the back alley. He finds his new friend so fascinating;
Fascinated by Whie’s way of life and driven by a need to establish some form of discipline, Haee creates a new set of rules for all the middling cats living in the alley. The alley becomes known as “Green Alley”.
At Green Alley, every cat abides by the new rules. Over time, some begin to break the rules. While “playing police”, Haee starts to question the soundness of his rules and the need for these rules. With the beginnings of monotony and banality setting in, Haee leaves Green Alley without an answer.
Middling ebooks are available in 2 versions: a basic version which reads like a pdf book and an enhanced animated version which comes with interactivity and additional content. The enhanced animated version is highly recommended where you get to listen to Haee’s and Whie’s dark inner thoughts.

“...the book resonates strongly with adults. As children, they are allowed to roam free and explore the world. As grown-ups, they must abide to stringent schedules and deadlines, while constantly running the risk of feeling mechanical. Haee's excursions will not only capture the imagination of children, but will also get a laugh out of adults as they anticipate the release of the next book in the Haee series.” - US Review of Books
"The author provokes us into thinking outside the box. She wants us to ask: "Is that it? Is that what life is all about? Being perfect? Doing all the politically correct things and having it all?" Sure looks good on the surface ... but the illustrations show otherwise.
… the illustrations tell an equally, if not more, compelling story of the ironic messages she is trying to convey.
… recommend this book to everyone: young adults who are about to embark on their journey of life and adults who outwardly think they have got it all but are unhappy inside. The presentation and approach in this remarkable book is simple and clear enough for children and teens to benefit from it, too!" - Allbooks Review International
