The Wigapom Quest has been reviewed as ‘a romping good yarn’ ‘absolutely gripping’ and ‘best book I’ve read for months’ as well as ’Beautifully written, with the most wonderful descriptive language that conjures up such visually spectacular images’ by readers, both young and not so young who ’didn’t want to put it down.

The discovery of the stones and retrieval of the book are blended with  psychological, philosophical and spiritual concepts, which deepen the story without detracting from the exciting narrative, and provide our hero, with undreamed of possibilities and experiences which take him on a strange yet always magical journey through the land of his birth and the creative depths of his psyche- a truly magical pathway of self-discovery, which threatens his life, his relationship with his oldest friend and manifests as his own inner child, leading him to a future he never imagined in his wildest dreams.

The book invites the reader to make their own inner quest - the search for self - which is one of the deeper levels of the book. Readers have found themselves ‘listening to the messages and following suit by not taking action in a particular situation,’ and have described ‘The Wigapom Quest’ as containing  ’Lots of learning for the individual’s soul and spirit and truly an inspirational text.’

Helping You to be Healthier

Founded in 1978, and operating in over 145 countries, Forever and its affiliates have become the largest grower, manufacturer and distributor of aloe vera and bee products in the world. Avoiding the use of herbicides and pesticides, our patented stabilisation process ensures our aloe vera is essentially identical to the inner leaf gel. And because we are not dependent on any other supplier, we can guarantee the quality of our aloe.
The key to our success is therefore a commitment to quality and purity. We start with 100% inner gel, adding just enough other ingredients to produce outstanding products. The versatility of this product means that aloe vera can be taken as a drink or applied to the skin. Not tested on animals, the Forever collection is a testament to nature’s capacity to help us look and feel our best.

The Wigapom Quest

This exciting, action packed and thought-provoking novel, published by Matador, is written to be read on different levels, and to appeal to all ages, in a similar vein to the work of C.S. Lewis.

It has a thumping good adventure story filled with a mix of magical and mythological creatures, which focuses on young Willerby/Wigapom’s quest to bring the light of wisdom back to a dark and fearful world. To do this he has to earn seven magic stones and place them in the book of True Magic, which has been stolen by the evil Sorcerer, Darqu’on, and, of course, he meets many challenges on the way.
