The Adventures of Andy MacDonald, Book 1


The Adventures of Andy MacDonald, Book 1, by Janet Lawson (Editions 1 & 2)

Suitable for children ages 6-10 years

Available in paperback and eBook from Amazon 


My latest self-published book for children is about a 7-year-old-boy called Andy Macdonald, who lives on the fictitious Scottish Island of Narra. Andy has a special, spiritual gift that attracts lots of adventures into his life. He uncovers a mystery that is taking place inside an old house. He visits the elementals who live in Roslin Glen, near Edinburgh, and he helps to heal the Ley lines that flow through Roslin Glen. Andy travels through the Universe in his own special spaceship called Merkabah and he meets a spaceman from Sirius, who tells Andy how his spaceship is able to fly. He also sees the positive changes that have taken place on the planet Earth when he travels into the future with Merkabah. And at the end of the story, Andy has fun at an Eid al-Fitr celebration.



Edition 1 (paperback): I included two colour images within the story of edition 1 and also 14 Hubble Space Telescope images and the corresponding literature,  as these images are connected to the story. But because I've included colour images in edition 1, I had to choose the premier colour paper option to print the paperback with Amazon, which is very expensive. So, unless you want to buy your child a storybook that is also an astronomy book, then this option isn’t the best option for you, as its the most expensive option. However, I want to mention this book as it has been published. Edition 1 paperback costs £14.99 GBP, plus postage.

Edition 1 (eBook): If your child has access to a laptop, tablet, or phone that can show colour images and view colour Kindle eBooks, then edition 1 eBook would be the best choice for you.  This eBook also contains the two, colour images within the story and the 14 Hubble Space Telescope images and corresponding literature at the end of the eBook. The Hubble Space Telescope images show the reader the places that Andy travelled to in his spaceship called Merkabah. Please note – I don’t think that the Kindle eBook reader (Kindle white etc) can view colour images. Edition 1 eBook costs £5.00 GBP.

Edition 2 (paperback): As the edition 1 paperback version turned out to be very costly to produce, I decided to publish an edition 2, so that children could still have the option of holding an actual book. This edition still has the two images within the story, but these images are in monochrome and not colour. Also, this edition doesn’t contain the Hubble Space Telescope images. Edition 2 paperback costs £5.30 GBP, plus postage.

Edition 2 (eBook): I decided to bring out an eBook in edition 2, for children who have access to the kindle eBook reader. This eBook doesn’t contain the Hubble Space Telescope images. The cost of edition2 eBook is £3.00 GBP.
