HAVE YOU MET THE MOSSRITES?
The World of Wickham Mossrite is the first in a series of five books about the lives, loves and learnings of an unschooling, conscious living family. Think of the Mossrites as modern hippies if you will; poster children for the crunchy, pinterest inspired generation. A life viewed through green-coloured glass. One reviewer actually called them “A Walton’s for the 21st Century.” I liked that.
Their stories are all about family values, in a less than conventional family. Daring to take the road less travelled, The Tales of a Blue Sky Thinking Family are about designing and pursuing the life you really want. About better life/work balance. About rethinking societal measures of success. About friendship, and laughter, and a banging musical soundtrack. And food. Lots, and lots of food.
The book is available as a paperback or ebook worldwide on Amazon – Just search in your country’s storefront.
Featured in the May 2015 issue of The Mother Magazine
The World of Wickham Mossrite can best be described as an attachment novel aimed at young readers. I would say that it’s the kind of book a parent would give their tween to help them find a fictional character that they can relate to – assuming of course that your family ticks at least some of the ‘crunchy’ tick boxes. The Mossrite family are the ideal ‘natural’ family, from the home birthing, somewhat hippie parents to the culturally aware, socially responsible home schooled offspring, you kind of wish you could be a Mossrite, most of the time.
The story itself should appeal to young readers, and parents will love (or hate) the underpinning principles of attachment, though the easily offended should probably avoid it, as the story does dabble in issues such as Vegetarianism and circumcision (**Note: it doesn’t) in a conversational-yet-educational way.
The first in a series, we’re excited to see what else happens in the world of Wickham Mossrite.

I absolutely fell in love with Wickham Mossrite, the hero in this story. He so reminded me of my own son, and I loved the way the author described everything, especially our hero! (an immense slumbering Buddha in a boy’s casing). This is a wonderful story for anyone who is interested in the natural passion for learning inside of all children, and how when supported it blossoms, flowers and becomes a lifelong love of learning.Throughout the story, the boy has choices and freedom allowing him to be responsible for his own path in life. He is filled with compassion, kindness and an understanding of the world around him (or at least a patience and unconditional knowing of the world around him) to just become the person he is destined to be.His family does not impose upon him, rather they offer gentle guidance when he asks and they allow him to unearth the magic, discover the possibility and experience the passion that IS living a life of compassion and purpose. I loved his adventures and his consciousness, seeing the entire world with everyone and everything in it with awe and a sense of wonder.
Whether homeschooling, unschooling or somewhere in between, seeing the world through the eyes of Wickham and experiencing life as he does is what the heart of natural parenting is all about.
JL Morse has presented a story that is a delight to read, share and mostly, be inspired by.
