wee wednesday: mimi and maty to the rescue

a few weeks ago i met extremely talented, local children's book author brooke smith.  brooke had always wanted to write a book about her daughter, mimi.  you see mimi took her love of animals and did something really wonderful with it...but i'll let brooke tell you all about it.  oh and did i mention brooke's book, mimi and maty to the rescue is my b's very favorite...well it is!

it is my absolute pleasure to introduce brooke smith:

I'm a children's book author living in Bend, Oregon. I'm excited to say that I've just released my first book, Mimi and Maty to the Rescue! Book One; Roger the Rat is on the Loose!"  


The book is inspired by my daughter, Mimi and her special 3-legged dog friend Maty. I've always wanted to write a book about Mimi's big heart and all the fun she has helping animals. When Miimi was 11, she created the website www.freekibble.com, to feed homeless pets at her local animal shelter. Since then, Freekibble has fed over 8.5 million meals to shelters, rescues and foodbanks across the country. Maty, an Australian Shepherd, is the canine ambassador for the Humane Society of Central Oregon, a Disc Dog champion... a real-life superdog!

Mimi and Maty to the Rescue! follows the adventures of Mimi and Maty as they set out to rescue any animal that needs their help! The illustrations are by an amazing New York City artist, Alli Arnold... who has captured Mimi and Maty perfectly with her delightful, colorful illustrations.

To celebrate the book launch, we're working with generationOn, to donate a copy of Mimi and Maty to the Rescue! for each one sold, to kids organizations, schools and libraries.

I hope my book will get other kids excited to help all the 4, and 3-legged creatures that need them. Enjoy!
