A journey toward fearlessness...

 Do you ever wonder how some people always seem to be happy, no matter what?

         Have you ever felt more depressed than others and unable to join their state of happiness? 

You're not alone…
At one time or another, we've all been in a pit of despair where it feels like

happiness is an impossibility. It is here Mystic the cat begins his journey toward

a place of pure joy and harmony—a place we all can reach.  

Don't wait anymore… 

 More than an adventurous cat story, this novel illustrates how to quiet the deceptively negative

noise of the mind so the pure joy that is you can finally shine through.


  Follow Mystic on his journey of discovery, and with him, unlock the secret to true happiness...

Mystic the cat loses everything he thought was the cause of his joy and reason for existence

when his best friend, an elephant named Bumpa goes missing.
Heartbroken, Mystic decides to search for his lost friend, and regain his happiness.
But on his journey, he meets a strange, beautiful black cat named Freedom who insists

he doesn't need Bumpa to be happy, and a terrifying red cat named Trembly

who tries to convince him that happiness is an illusion.
Mystic's hope shatters and his worst fears threaten to push him into a bottomless abyss of pain.
Will Mystic have the strength to face his fears?
Will he ever see Bumpa, or be truly happy ever again?

Unleash your happiness… 


"Who would imagine that a story about some cats (and monkeys and an elephant), could be so illuminating?"

Classic Fiction 

This seemingly unassuming book provides great messages and a deeper understanding of our feelings, how essential they are to our well-being, how they shape our values and affect the way we go through life.

Instead of letting inner happiness happen by chance, we can make it an intended choice.

Simply put, this is a wonderfully motivating, poignant, and commendable read from Anne-Claire Szubaniska for young and older readers.

Lit Amri, Readers'Favorite ★★★★★


Seen through the eyes of small, furry characters, the metaphors for life are stronger than ever by their distancing from the human brain.

I found myself wanting Mystic to appreciate life, and in doing so highlighted the self-damaging processes that I know I and many others are prone to do.
