Bradley and the Magic Carpet, has gained a 5-star review from the Reader's Favorite website.
We are over the moon about this as you can imagine!
Amy Raines starts on the Reader's Favorite site with a description of the story:
Bradley and the Magic Carpet, written by Julian Hilton and illustrated by Jacqueline East, is an adorable children’s story about a young boy named Bradley.
I loved Bradley and the Magic Carpet. Julian Hilton and Jacqueline East have written and illustrated a wonderful story with a plot that children will love.
With the promise of pie for dessert and the magic of a flying carpet, Bradley and the Magic Carpet is the stuff kids’ dreams are made of. The characters are fun and interesting and easy for young readers to follow through the tale as Bradley is whisked away on his adventure.
She goes on to add...
Hilton and East have a masterful skill at telling a story through illustrations as well as the words that accompany them. I recommend Bradley and the Magic Carpet to anyone with children who love to read or be read to.
I am certain Hilton and East’s tale will be loved for many years to come by children everywhere. I hope to read many more tales as fun and adventurous as Bradley and the Magic Carpet.

Other self-publish author's take note - this is a great site to submit your book to for review. They have published this review not only on their FB page, but also their twitter, Instagram and Pintrest feeds. In addition, they have left this review on the Barnes and Noble website next to the book, which will surely help people make up their minds when choosing this book for their children.
Also - we can use their lovely award logo when promoting the book now - and can even get the stickers to stick on actual books... now that will be fun!
I have entered Bradley and the Magic Carpet into their annual Book Awards competition...so fingers crossed, we may yet win something else when the winners are announced in September!
