"As avid fantasy readers, my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed Gulliver Wimple and The Gems of Dara Mhór. Gary Bower does such a wonder job of character development, while his captivating storytelling style and imagery make
this book a fun read that is hard to put down. His humor consistently brings heartfelt laughter and a sense of believability to all of his characters. As a pastor who has studied the book of Proverbs, it is very clear to me that the author has a very deep understanding of Proverbs. I highly recommend this book!
