Jillian Mallia

Massive congratulations are in order for Luisa Abela who not only published her first children’s book but it’s ranking as Amazon’s number 1 in New Releases. YAS! ‘I Wish I Was A Monster’, which you can find here, is written with “endearing text and bold expressive illustrations.”

About the book

“This is a book about a young boy who wishes his wish would come true,” the book’s description on Amazon reads. “He has an exciting and adventurous imagination and wishes that he can become a monster to do all the cool things that monsters do. He would be a friendly monster, showing all his friends that monsters are just like you and me.”

About the author’s journey

In a recent interview with Gadgets, Luisa shared that her friend approached her to write a children’s book that would be published on Amazon. “I was totally caught by surprise, mostly because I’ve never written a children’s book or any book before and didn’t really know what to expect.” But Luisa went for it and totes slayed!

Luisa also revealed that it’s a three-part series and the next two books will be called ‘I Wish I Was An Alien’ and ‘I Wish I Was A Mermaid.’ It seems that Amazon will be the publisher of these two books, too.

The book is perfect for kids aged three to five years. Need to give a gift to a kid you know? Why not support local and buy Luisa’s book, which will be released on 26th April! Congrats Luisa!
