“Something for readers of all genres… science fiction certainly, yet peppered with some of the realities of life and friendship… also a little mystery, some suspense, some adventure, humour… and a happy ever after.
A short yet well written and nuanced story, with moments that made me smile. The quality of writing is sure to inspire young readers and extend their vocabularies.
If anything, I wished that the story had been longer.
"Malobi has a knack for bridging our outer and inner worlds in simple language that nevertheless grapples with deep thoughts and ideas. Her stories inspire adults and children alike. Beautifully written and good for the soul."
...............Shourov B., Lead Singer, The Bombay Royale
"There is a freshness and vibrancy in Malobi Sinha's poems that I for one have rarely encountered in the otherwise Byzantine mazes of much contemporary poetry. The complex layers of meaning in her poems, beneath their often apparent simplicity, rewards the reader at every turn."
.................Graham Pitts, Screenwriter
"Thank you Malobi, for your candor and honesty. I think you have a gift that you share in your writing which is both beautifully constructed and is rich in imagery and feeling of nature and spirit…"
..................Frank Esposito, Author, Editor – PoetryPasta
“Malobi Sinha writes poems of suppleness and emotional candour... Although Australia is rich in poetic talent like Ms Sinha...the rewards of her poetry are many, and her poems encourage repeated readings, growing richer and more complex each time."
..................Phillip A. Ellis, Author, Editor Melaleuca
