Milton's Secret: An Adventure of Discovery Through Then, When, and the Power of Now Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For the first time ever, bestselling author Eckhart Tolle brings the core of his teachings to children, ages 7 to 100. Beautifully illustrated and artfully expressed, this charming story will bring joy to children and their parents for decades to come.

Milton, who is about eight years old, is experiencing bullying on the school playground at the hands of a boy named Carter.

Because he is being picked on, Milton no longer enjoys going to school. In fact, he dreads each morning because of his fear of Carter.

By discovering the difference between Then, When, and the Now, Milton is able to shed his fear of being bullied. Living in the Now, he no longer dreads encountering Carter--and this changes everything.

Milton's Secret will not only appeal to the millions of adult readers of Tolle's other books, but also to any parent who wants to introduce their children to the core of Tolle's teachings: Living in the Now is the quickest path to ending fear and suffering.

Review:

"Tolle, author of The Power of Now, brings the philosophy in that book to a young audience with Hampton Roads cofounder Friedman. Milton has a happy existence until an encounter with a bully. Shaken, he retreats into himself, worrying his family. During heart-to-heart conversations, Milton's grandfather works to convince the boy not to dwell on the past ('Then') or the future ('When') but on the present ('Wherever you are... that's the Now. You just have to pay attention'). Following an extended dream sequence in which the woman at Milton's favorite ice cream parlor appears as a mystical sage in flowing robes, Milton regains his confidence. Riccio's (The Little Soul and the Earth) homey Everytown, USA, setting lends the book an inviting, old-fashioned feel. Children should readily grasp the message and see obvious parallels in a subplot in which Milton's cat is attacked by a Doberman but is calm soon after. Whether those children will stay in the Now long enough to sit through the text-heavy book's lengthy passages is less certain. Ages 8 — 12." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
