Friendship is a truly beautiful thing, bringing many different people and in Kiki’s story - inter-galactic beings together. “Kiki De Venus” (published by Xlibris UK) follows the adventures of little Kiki who lives with her mom on the planet Venus. She often takes a space shuttle to visit her dad who lives on Mars. Each time she passes Earth on these journeys, Kiki is mesmerized by the life of the Earthians. One day, she slips away from the space shuttle and parachutes down to Earth. Kiki meets a space dog called Snooty Pooch, and the two begin their adventure. Snooty Pooch introduces Kiki to a very special thing the Earthians are known for - music. Music brings Kiki and Snooty Pooch to Cutie Boop, a girl who loves dreaming with the shooting stars.

This beautifully written and amazingly illustrated story is a rare outcome of a mother-daughter collaboration. It shows kids the value of friendship and the fact that it can be found anywhere. “Kiki De Venus” is a must read for kids everywhere.
