Quantum physics for kids doesn't exactly sound like the latest trend. But children's book author Kimberly Wickham - the artist and writer behind the new Angels and Horses children's book series sensation - is transforming the way parents, educators, and children themselves think about contemporary children's literature, with a series of books and artwork that explores the whimsical, fanciful, and even mystical possibilities available to creative children today.

The Angels and Horses series, which is comprised of Angels and Horses, Summer of Magic Horses, and the upcoming Angels, Horses and Other Worldly Lessons, manages to combine the warmth and humor of a children's horse story with hints of magic and an inspiring focus on positive and creative thought. Tina, our young heroine, begins the series as an insecure middle-schooler dealing with more challenges than she thinks she can handle, among them the illness of her mother and the taunts of bullies in the schoolyard. Her pet horse Dancer, her closest friend, gives her some solace, but Tina is still troubled. But when her guardian angel Marguerite arrives on the scene, Tina is introduced to the full metaphysical possibilities of the universe beyond the Cosmic Lattice.

But this isn't the magic of "Harry Potter." Rather, the ideas that underpin the Angels and Horses series are based firmly in the real-world concept of the "Law of Attraction," popularized in self-help phenomenon "The Secret" - that at a quantum level, the universe is filled with far more wonder than meets the eye, and that positive thinking can genuinely affect the way the world works. Thus, the lessons that Tina learns can be practiced by children themselves - an exciting treat for children heartbroken that they never received Hogwarts entry letters on their eleventh birthday.

Wickham's art, which ties into the themes of her book - from the "Cosmic Lattice" to her beloved horses, is available for purchase separately from her illustrations - in Giclee Print, Print, or Card format. The whimsical drawings and paintings bring Wickham's ideas to life, and are perfect decorations for a child's bedroom or classroom, or as greeting or Christmas cards.

Wickham's writing and art is available through Trafford Publishing and at
