Hear Why The Book Was Written
Hi My name is Auriel Blanche,
The Magic Sunglasses is a book I first wrote for one of my lovely nieces over 24 years ago when she was about 12 and not feeling very confident
or good about herself . The story seemed to help her and has helped many other children since learn how to feel really great about themselves.
The Magic Sunglasses tells the story of a shy young girl called Samantha of about 12yrs old. Samantha had a big dream of things she wanted to do
– Samantha dared to dream that she too could be successful, even though her family didn’t support her and she was just an ordinary young girl.
But how can she make her dream come true?
One day she finds some Magic Sunglasses on a local market stall. Now these are no ordinary sunglasses – they have a strange and marvellous power
which support and guide Samantha to discover what you can do if you learn to believe in yourself.

After a series of crazy and exciting adventures which help her in her quest, Samantha realises that she doesn’t need the Magic Sunglasses any more
–because she has discovered her inner strength - that the power to succeed was always within her – as it is for everybody including the readers
of this book!
