Thanks for stopping by the land of Magniflora Gully. This new and fun full-color series is based in a fantasy forest inhabited by talking animals, enchanted trees and a brave group of flower sprites entrusted with protecting the entire land.

The star of the series is
Petalianne - an energetic, caring and kind girl who sometimes tries too hard to help others. Her occasional clumsiness and rushed determination can cause a lot of trouble for herself and her friends, but whenever Petalianne is needed, she is always there to help however she can. Unlike her friends, Petalianne does not know what her unique 'flower power' is. Flower Power is a special one-of-a-kind ability every flower sprite has. It will take time for Petalianne to realize her true potential, but when that time comes, she will show everyone that she is greatest hero the Magniflora Gully has ever seen!

The series was created by Canadian writer and artist Luanga 'Lue' Nuwame and is drawn by legendary comic book artist Dan Hammond. The intended audience is girls ages 6 AND UP (but we hope all age groups, and boys too, will enjoy the series).

Petalianne has been published as a
children's picture book and is now an ongoing quarterly series. The first edition of the children's picture book (The Adventures of Clumsy Little Petalianne) is currently available on Amazon.com and CreateSpace.com.

Special Feature: Word Serch game on the last page
Petalianne is a kind, energetic and eager flower sprite who tries to help her friends complete their daily chores. Unfortunately, Petalianne’s clumsiness and rushed work can cause more problems than help. Lucky for her, she has great friends who learn to appreciate just how amazing and special Petalianne’s ‘unique’ type of help is in keeping the land beautiful.

This pleasant and uplifting story by writer/creator Luanga Nuwame and artist George Leon is meant to show girls that good intentions and a desire to help friends can make a day better. Even if someone feels clumsy or awkward, that person will always be loved and appreciated. This first edition also comes complete with a fun and challenging Word Search game on the last page.

Luanga was inspired by the recent birth of his daughter to create this new line of books to entertain and uplift girls everywhere.

The Adventures of Little Petalianne is a new series of single-panel 'comic book style' picture books following the exploits of a group of powerful flower sprites (known as the Flower Petal Girls) responsible for protecting their forest home called The Magniflora Gully. The star of the series is the youngest flower sprite named Petalianne. Unlike her friends, Petalianne does not know what her 'flower power' is and she is more interested in having fun and playing than doing chores. Carefree and sometimes clumsy, Petalianne's heart is always in the right place. One day, Petalianne will amaze the entire forest with her courage and unyielding desire to help those in need. This first issue is an introduction of The Magniflora Gully, the Flower Petal Girls, the Tree Boys and Queen Azura.
