are a series of 11 fantasy/adventure stories about a Drama Queen who magically becomes a Peace Queen capable of outsmarting bullies.
Her secret weapon is the power of choice. Each time a bully attacks, she reacts with gloom and doom. When she chooses to feel peace instead, she blooms and brilliantly saves herself.
Transforming from a victim into a victor requires practicing Mindful Breathing. It teaches kids (6-9 years old) how to calm themselves and use their common sense. Doing so helps prevent trauma.

Fantastic!  So creative and what a wonderful way to educate kids about Mindfulness. I was so impressed I shared Ice Veil Tales with several colleagues. And they all agreed!

Ice Veil Tales use great graphics and engaging stories to teach children an essential truth: that you can manage your emotions and stay centered even in difficult situations. Bravo to Munter for bringing this message for kids in such a compelling and creative way!

Thank you for all of the support and faith you put in Natasha. She has a wonderful, positive self image that in no small part has been developed under your tutelage.

I really applaud your efforts in bringing this project to life and think you're doing a great job.
Loris Kramer, children’s TV producer

Wow, I wish we had Ice Veil Tales when Alex was a little girl. What a valuable message you are sending to so many young minds and hearts, a message that may change their lives forever. 
Hollis Henning, Malibu, CA

I have enjoyed both the story and the illustrations. Munter tackles in a deceptively simple way some very deep emotional issues. I thought some of the wordplay was especially clever.
Peter Lovenheim, author of “In the Neighborhood.”

It's engaging, colorful and kid-oriented. Love the rhymes and the word play -- clever metaphors that parents can also enjoy. And the idea of teaching kids to do deep breathing, and to stop and think, and get in touch with their inner self is definitely a good one. I'm really impressed that Munter did the illustrations, too.

Our mission is to unleash the creative potential of indie authors around the world, so I'm always gratified to see unexpected gems. Cool artwork, inside and out by childrens' author/artist Ora Munter."
Mark Coker, SMASHWORDS founder/owner

WOW! WOW!! WOW!!! This is truly AMAZING! I LOVE this book. The graphics are wonderful, the writing exceptional, the whole package is INCREDIBLE. This is deep yet easy to understand. Written the way girls that age think and talk.
Michelle L. Marina, Las Vegas, NV

I love reading this book. Each page is filled with brilliant, colorful, and imaginative illustrations, and a story that holds your interest all the way to the end. I gave the book to my eight year old niece and she thought it was "the greatest." Author Ora Munter has a special talent for creating a fantasy world that all children would like to escape to. 
Joyce L. Foster, Los Angeles, CA

This is awesome! You should have your videos in Spanish.
Eduardo Yanez,  Mexico’s star actor

In the grand tradition of "The Wizard of Oz" and "Alice in Wonderland," Ora Munter's heroine, Kiki, finds herself transported to a strange but beautiful world. Brilliantly illustrated by the author, this book is a fun ride for children and parents alike. Using lots of alliteration ("tooted his tofutti trumpet") and strong and vibrant words, Ms. Munter creates a fantasy world that is sure to become a family favorite.

Munter introduces us to an edgy youngster from New Jersey who quickly finds herself swept into an alternate universe (a Willy Wonka-ish planet). My favorite character was Rocky Road. Not unlike the Land of Narnia, conflict quickly ensues between the "towns people" and an evil, would-be King, a wicked wizard, an avenging giant, magical butterflies, romance, non-stop action, and suspense round out this exciting adventure.

Prior to the puppet show we practiced a few Mindful breaths. Once the puppet show started, all 4 students (3 girls and 1 boy) were engaged in the episode. I would stop, as you suggested, and ask them to tell me what happened. One girl from the group was able to recite the plot. Keep in mind I'm working with students with very low recall abilities. What I found super cute was another student would say "inhale, exhale, trust the ice veil" at appropriate times, suggesting she really enjoyed the practice. It appeared that the students enjoyed, and were interested in, the content and practice.
