Real Life Hero Inspires Mom to Write a Book
Okay, young readers and young readers' book buyers, I have a fun recommendation that will appeal to animal lovers who enjoy humor and mystery. Pick up Mimi and Maty to the Rescue!: Book 1: Roger the Rat is on the Loose! by Brooke Smith and illustrated by Alli Arnold. I predict that Mimi will become the beloved hero of many books, maybe even a movie! She is bold, kind, super responsible and extremely proactive and shares her adventures with a really awesome dog.
According to an official book description --
Descriminating office book critic gives Mimi and Maty to the Rescue!: Book 1: Roger the Rat is on the Loose! four paws up!
Mimi is an animal-loving girl and Maty is her three-legged dog. Together, this fantastic duo sets out to rescue any animal that needs help. When their friend George calls and needs to find a missing rat named Roger, Mimi and Maty jump into action! Keeping track of all the clues in their trusty rescue notebook, Mimi and Maty embark on an adventure that involves their nasty friend Icky Vicky and her brother Dicky, the Pom Pom Pie Place, and one smart dumbo rat! What is even cooler than the book, is that the author was inspired by her real-life bold, kind, super responsible and extremely proactive daughter, Mimi Ausland (founder of FreeKibble.com) and her special three-legged dog friend, Maty. This book just goes to show that kids can do anything!
