“The Prince And The Polestar is a story from ancient India retold and illustrated by Kosa Ely with great sensitivity and imaginative expression. A timeless classic has been presented here in a most uplifting and creative manner, with excellent character portrayal as well as descriptive imagery—–a work prepared, clearly, with a heart-felt appreciation for the subject matter. I am always delighted to find an author who is capable of allowing
stories from the ancient past to speak meaningfully to us in modern times, and Kosa Ely has achieved this. The message of the story, that our relationships of love with dear ones and the beloved Lord, are everlasting and worth more than any amount of worldly gain, is presented in charming narrative and inspiring illustration. The world projected by the text is filled with kings, wise sages, subordinate deities, and the supreme divinity known as
Narayana, or Vishnu, understood in India as supremely powerful yet very accessible and very intimate as a deeply loved friend. Her warm rendition will appeal to readers of all ages and backgrounds.”
