Animator's First Novel Offers Inspiration, Enlightenment for Readers

"Littluns™ AND THE BOOK OF DARKNESS" Now Available

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - January 10, 2008) - Animator Mark Glamack believes that positive motivation, education and inspiration need to be an integral part of today's entertainment. That said, Glamack decided to fill that void with a family-friendly book defining the age-old battle between the choice of light or darkness.

"Littluns™ AND THE BOOK OF DARKNESS," according to Glamack, is a story for all ages. A scavenger hunt takes readers on a roller coaster ride into the unknown. Glamack has created a different reading experience in a new world with fascinating characters.

The verdict is in from Tweens and Teens who are enthusiastic about the book and are sharing it with their friends. "The Littluns™ is a wonderful story!" says tenth grader, Courtney, "The characters immediately draw you into this fantasy novel. Once inside the story, you feel yourself transported into this world of magic. Awesome! There is a struggle between good and evil," Courtney adds, "that is similar to that of the Harry Potter series because the main characters use their courage, determination and a little bit of magic to overcome the forces of evil."

Glamack explains, "The book gives positive celebration to traditional Judeo-Christian values and the human spirit. It is a story of extreme good and innocence in a world of chaos. This book clearly defines the differences." Stephanie Johnston, wrote in her review of the book, "Refreshing, from a parent's point of view, is knowing that Littluns™ is written absent of inappropriate and offensive language, and will not affect the onset and continued interest of the reader. The book stays in balance with humor, terror, innocence, action, morals, truth, sadness, hope, and feelings. The reader will find this novel impossible to predict and full of surprises."

The beautiful 63 color-animated illustrations in the book are reminiscent of Disney quality. Glamack began his career as an animator at Disney and his projects include "The Jungle Book," "Bedknobs and Broomsticks," "The Wonderful World of Disney," and "The Story of Walt Disney."

"Littluns™ AND THE BOOK OF DARKNESS" is Glamack's first novel and can be purchased online at and in select stores.
