There’s a new talking horse in town and his name is RAJALIKA!We only imagine what really goes through the mind of a horse when his eyes open wide, he exhales a loud snort, or trumpets your arrival with the force of a choir. So, step into the world of RAJALIKA SPEAK and discover. There’s a new talking horse in town!“No one ever thought of asking me to speak back then and certainly, never guessed I could answer,” says RajaliKa (ra-jaw-lee-ka), the royally-bred Arabian stallion gone bad, who finds redemption when he learns to talk, in a tale for children of all ages, from Los Angeles-based author Elizabeth Kaye McCall.Written from a horse’s perspective, RAJALIKA SPEAK draws readers into a four-legged world where a handsome, wayward, stallion confronts his feelings about trust, commitment, dealing with life’s uncertainties, and the power of expressing oneself in extraordinary ways, after meeting an intriguing young woman named Ka-la.“After all the years I’d been adrift in a sea of humanity, for the first time I’d found my person,” explains the horse, whose unusual talents and charisma are revealed, as memories of his past fade away. “Like so many friends, or couples, we began a routine early on,” reflects the naturally outspoken equine in a contemplative moment, in this original work of juvenile fiction. “As I think back on our early life together, I’m reminded how much one life, one action, can impact a course of events,” he adds.Inspired by a real-life horse who discovered a destiny his illustrious ancestors never imagined, RAJALIKA SPEAK is reminiscent of The Little Prince meets The Alchemist, sprinkled with the ancient Hawaiian healing process Ho'oponopono.
