Reviews - What do customers think about Through Rose Coloured Glasses?
Multi-level appeal! Jul 3, 2007
Ruth Salway's book works on a number of levels. It's a great fairytale for both children and adults. It gently reinforces some good strong social mores. Perhaps most intriguingly for the adult reader, it's an allegorical tale of caution to anyone who has ever been lured by the promises of easy money. It's not too hard to look beneath the fairytale charm to see the "jam tomorrow" world of multi-level marketing exposed. In this charming world, as in real life, it turns out that there are no magic potions and remedies for finding ones financial success. The villains are well drawn, and their schemes are as credible as they are pernicious. I recommend this book to those looking for a good strong story for children, and an insight into the equally fairytale world of multi-level marketing. I look forward to this authors next book with interest.
Superb! Thoroughly Entertaining. Jun 7, 2007
An enchanting and humorous tale exploring the moral dimensions attached to prosperity. This is a rewarding read which highlights the virtue of honesty and condemns avaricious gain; It also clarifies how susceptible we all are to the masquerading Dream Sellers. The story is set in the English countryside with adorable characters and delightful scenes filling the 240 pages. The illustrations never fail to please and the descriptive articulation draws the reader in superbly. I was hooked from the beginning and felt well indulged when I reached the end. The subtle witticism throughout even got this old prune laughing, ( it has been marketed for the young reader but it will capture the imagination of all ). I thought the chapter about the annual village fete was hilarious. Well done Ruth Salway! I hope this new British talent continues to entertain with another imaginative adventure. Well thought out with a very clever twist.
