Author Event: Debbi Michiko Florence (Proceeds to Benefit Buddy Dog!)
Sunday October 20 | 2:00PM - 4:00PM
Connecticut author Debbi Michiko Florence, author of the Jasmine Toguchi series, will be in our store to read from her newest set of books: The My Furry Foster Family series!
As a special request, Debbi asked us to donate all sales proceeds from this event to a local animal foster/adoption agency. We chose Buddy Dog Humane Society of Sudbury, and they will be at the store for the event! Come out to support this wonderful organization that does a lot for the pets in our community!
Truman the Dog, part of the My Furry Foster Family series, introduces children to the responsibility and patience it takes to care for a new dog in the house. "T" is for Truman, tricks, and TROUBLE! Truman the black lab might be an older rescue dog, but he's still got enough mischief beneath his collar to keep eight-year-old Kaita Takano and her animal-fostering family on their toes from morning till night. Chewed through and through, the playfully illustrated, Kaita-narrated chapter book promises plenty of canine fun.
Reviewed by both the School Library Journal and Kirkus Reviews, the book offers "many worthwhile elements-a responsible and helpful protagonist, a diverse and loving family, and the message that rescuing animals is worthwhile." This is the perfect book for any family thinking about inviting a new furry friend into their family this year!
We look forward to hosting Debbi and Buddy Dog at the store! Come out and support a thoughtful local author and a helpful local organization!
