Erin Ley’s creation of her space academy student, Maggie the Magnificent, is a dream come true. Reach for the stars! That’s what Erin did and that’s exactly where her dreams took her.
Maggie the Magnificent is a sociable twelve-year-old girl with a curious mind, courageous spirit, and loving heart. She was born on December 8, 3498, over a thousand years from now, on Planet Earth. In the year 3510 Maggie travels from planet to planet, flying through the galaxy in her spaceship; however, she is always connected to her home through a chip in her arm. Her house is part human and part robot. It has feelings. Actually, her whole family is connected to the house and it takes very good care of Maggie, her younger brothers, Tommy and Joey, and her mom and dad mainly because they take very good care of their home. Some of her fellow space academy students from Earth and other planets don’t take care of their houses so their home does not thrive. This makes Maggie sad. She understands the importance of good character, good qualities in oneself, and to bring those to her house.
Maggie in the Drivers Seat
Erin Ley's 80 page children's book, Maggie's in the Driver's Seat, is an out-of-this-world adventure that kids and parents can take together from their own home. Six stimulating stories accompanied by full-color illustrations give parents the tools to teach their children how to build positive character traits and discover basic human virtues. Each excursion delivers a memorable message that children will forever benefit from throughout their own life journey.
Each adventure story takes Maggie to a different planet where a different character trait is illustrated, learned, and applied. Maggie discovers responsibility, respect, honesty and accountability, compassion, self-discipline and generosity. As she encounters these traits, she realizes how she can apply them to her own life.
Maggie's adventures also put her in contact with all sorts of curious creatures. On Planet Luvit she meets two-headed dragons. Planet Awe introduces her to a goobley goblin and a jumping giant. And on Planet Plenty, she has an enlightening conversation with the Present Givers.
Erin Ley blends universal themes and gives us insight into their simple yet powerful applications through the eyes of a young girl. She tells us that even in the year 3510 the world can be a better place if we all learn to value each other.
Maggie Unmasks Planet Pumpkin
Maggie the Magnificent has decided to throw her very first Halloween party. She is very excited to spend an evening with her close friends while meeting those from other planets as well. She is especially curious to meet the residents of Planet Pumpkin. Maggie used to have a pen pal from Planet Pumpkin who never signed her letters and would never answer any of Maggie's questions. Eventually she stopped writing to Maggie altogether.
When talking to her best friend Ryan, Maggie begins to wonder how she is going to get to know the residents from other planets if everyone is wearing a mask. She will have no idea whom she is talking to.
Maggie decides to tell everyone during the party that it is time to take their masks off and get to know each other. Little does she know the surprise that is about to ensue— especially when she is forced to confront the guests from Planet Pumpkin.
Erin Ley's 36 page character-building children's book, Maggie Unmasks Planet Pumpkin, is the second book of the Maggie the Magnificent series and has been created to illustrate the importance of self-esteem, individuality, and courage.
