ABOUT & REVIEWS
CrindelStar is an inspirational story about Maria, a young girl who is facing peer pressure from her classmates to abandon believing in her precious unicorns. We learn through Maria’s encounter with a mystical creature, CrindelStar, that what she believes of herself creates the foundation of what she might ultimately contribute to the world through her life’s purpose and gift.
CrindelStar arrives in disguise to rescue Maria who is facing a big life lesson, and, through Maria’s compassion, courage and love, CrindelStar is saved as well !

“I believe in the cause, I believe in encouraging children
and their dreams, and most
of all I believe in the person who is trying to make this all happen! “~Robert Linden ~ Zen Boogie Band, & Associate Director Television Music CBS. [This dear friend of CrindelStar's passed away several years ago. His encouragement and devotion to the CrindelStar project & to me, Gigi de Lugo CrindelStar's creator ~ was the wind beneath my unicorn's wings, and continues still, in my heart.]

“CrindelStar is a magical tale. It is the story of Maria’s personal instructional manual for the beauty of being alive. Maria begins trusting her inner wisdom and conquers the bullies in her mind and environment. Maria fully experiences her own heart as the gateway to believing in herself. This story will help children of all ages give “life to their dreams, stay awake and remember the magic” (Maria – Crindelstar). My students and clients loved this tale of how we learn lessons in life by connecting to our wise selves. I fully endorse this wonderful, transformational story.”
