Insight into “How Orples Came To Be” … Part 1

Olivia (an intelligent little orange) is about to be picked from her tree.   Now, her life is really getting ready to change. What am I talking about? Why “orples”, of course.  Jack, an only child, and Olivia are about to become unlikely friends as events unfold in this new book.  “How Orples Came To Be” (63 color illustrated pages) begins the series of orples adventures.  My publishers list it as a children’s book, but I think it is appropriate for anyone 8 – 80. There are lots of subtle little lessons hidden between the lines that apply to us all dealing with friendship, loneliness, loyalty, and that nagging little battle we all sometimes experience when right and wrong are not easily separated.  The story description is a little different on Amazon’s site and by my publisher.  Both summaries are correct.  The alternate version focuses more on the story itself.

  1. In a world filled with such sadness, how great is it to have the Orples. And what an amazing talent and person Ms. King is. Can’t wait to see what the Orples do next and where my amazing friend will take us next. Thank you, Marcy, for being you.


    • Hi Ledia, It’s been a long time. I hope life’s been being good to you and yours. Thank you for reblogging this. I’m sorry it’s been so long since I’ve acknowledge your/everyone’s visits, really. I changed by e-mail to separate my blog notifications from ‘business’ emails, and life happened, and so on, but for the time being, I’m back again, so thought I’d stop by and say ‘hello’. I really do miss our little ‘chats’. 🙂 I’ll be snooping on your blog to see what I missed, when I have time to actually visit. In the meantime, take care. Marcy
