Zenji & the Muzzy Bug: The Mindful & Magical Sleep Solution (Buddabugzz Sleepwell) (Volume 1)
Aisli Madden, author

Children/Young Adult; General Fiction (including literary and historical); (Market)

“Zenji & the Muzzy Bug” is the ultimate ‘feel-good’ bedtime story, for kids of all ages. Enriched with mindfulness, “Zenji & the Muzzy Bug” helps children become relaxed and sleepy at bedtime. Characters Zenji and Karma teach us how to feel better physically and mentally, by being mindful and focusing our thoughts. They encourage readers to listen to their inner voice, believe in their inner strength, and be mindful of their hero within. The Story: Zenji the Buddabug is feeling rather unwell. He is stuck in bed and he’s extremely bored... That’s until his buddy Karma appears and takes him on a magical adventure... inside Zenji’s body! After listening to Karma's relaxation rhyme, Zenji is transported inside his own body where he heals himself from within, and becomes more relaxed with each breath he takes. Buddabugzz bedtime stories are infused with well-being and mindfulness techniques that help develop self-confidence and positive thinking from the earliest age. Each title is purposely designed to encourage sleep at bedtime and to safeguard and nurture children’s mental health from infancy.

Hi Aisli, 
I have two little boys, Zach (3) and Jake (6). Jake was officially diagnosed with Aspergers, ADHD, ODD, PDD-NS and sensory dysfunction. It's quite complex, and communicating feelings can be frustrating for him, especially at bedtime. Now Jake asks for Zenji and the Muzzy Bug every night. He does the breathing and is totally relaxed going to sleep. He's gone within a few minutes. Zach also joins in and he too is zonked. They both lie there doing their deep breathing, it's amazing to see.

Jake gets teary a lot during the day, because he is overloaded with stuff that we take for granted. Trying to explain what anxiety is to a 6 year old is difficult, but now when Jake gets frustrated during the day, he tells me he has green things in his tummy, like the muzzy bug. So I get him to do his breathing. I just love his reference to the green things in his tummy. I am so proud of Jake as he's using the story to tell me about the stuff that's going on inside him. Now whenever he feels anxious, he tells me he has a muzzy bug and it's so much easier for both of us. The last time I had this much interaction was when I read him the Gruffalo, but Zenji and the Muzzy Bug has actions which are part of the actual story. I can't praise it enough. Your book has had such an impact with Jake and his little brother, we all love the experience, and it has changed our lives. It's beautiful. 

Thank you for a great transition to mindfulness. You've done an amazing job. We are all so much happier with Zenji in our lives.
