“THE ADVENTURES TO PAWNASSUS by Shana Thornton is truly a heartfelt, magical adventure from start to finish. I was joyfully surprised with the vast opportunities for learning woven into this tender story. The writer shares much more than a story. She carefully introduces us to creative ways to cope when faced with adversity, as well as dazzling us with immense knowledge of herbs, plants, and nature. It’s as if she opens us to the subtle and profound immensities of life. This story will open eyes and hearts to the specialness that we each bring to the world and how vitally important our uniqueness is to the whole. This tale inspires us to look inside, live from our hearts, and helps us realize the ingenuitive powers we all carry within us. Truly a joyful adventure, filled with tears, realities, perseverance, and what it takes to live a TRULY WONDERFUL life. I would love to see this book in every school library. It’s ripe with the potential to inspire all children, but especially those who unfortunately are not exposed to a peaceful way of living and existing.”—Leslie Storms, Holistic RN, M.S. in Marriage & Family Therapy, & Yoga Teacher


“THE ADVENTURES TO PAWNASSUS by Shana Thornton is a delightful fable to be read and re-read. The energy of mother nature and the love between dogs and humans shines through in this mystical tale of how animals see us and how we, maybe even unknowingly, are bound to them. In this story we learn how, through the practice of yoga, humans can begin to blur the lines between the physical and the mystical.”—Lisa Lofthouse, Professional Level Yoga Instructor, Author of JOURNEY TO A LIFE OF BLISS, Advocate for Bliss and Owner of Breathing Space


"I thoroughly enjoyed it! Highly recommended for readers of all ages! THE ADVENTURES TO PAWNASSUS by Shana Thornton is one of those books with characters that linger in your mind long after you've read the last page. Lyrical writing draws you into this enchanting tale and gives the reader a window into the lives of animals and humans that share the same hopeful futures."

Praise for THE ADVENTURES TO PAWNASSUS

It's almost time! THE ADVENTURES TO PAWNASSUS by Shana Thornton will be released in autumn 2019. THE ADVENTURES TO PAWNASSUS begins during a delightful and whimsical afternoon when Mia follows a fox on her family’s yoga retreat sanctuary. What transpires is an adventure to save young Luna, an abandoned dog. Mia and her family make Luna a member of their family when they can’t locate any owners, and Luna settles into her new home at the family’s yoga sanctuary, which is only a view away from legendary Pawnassus, the famous doggy bookstore. Just as Luna begins to dream of a future, at her first visit to the veterinarian, they discover that she has a fatal heart condition. Luna needs an operation to survive, and in a moment of desperation, Mia launches a plan that she hopes will save her beloved pet’s life. 
Inspired by Japanese kitsune tales and fairytales, author Shana Thornton’s THE ADVENTURES TO PAWNASSUS will enchant children and adults. It gives pause to musings and meditation as well.
