HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY to ANIMAL ANDY! My middle grade fantasy novella was officially released today by Muse It Up Publishing, and I couldn't be more excited! After more than a year of writing, revising, revising, revising, editing and more editing, it's a thrill to see the final product! Every birthday deserves at least a cupcake, and since my 5-year-old LOVES sprinkles, this cupcake seemed perfect!
Ten-year-old Andy Ohman is spending his summer working at the Aksarben City Zoo where his dad is curator. There are rumors the city might close the zoo due to budget cuts. An anonymous donor has given the zoo an antique animal carousel, and Andy’s dad is hopeful it will help boost attendance. Andy’s doubtful that an old kiddie ride will make a difference. He doesn’t see what’s so special about it. But when he takes it for a spin, he unlocks the magic that will help save the zoo.
This is a fun, magical story perfect for kids ages 6-10. (Check out the book trailer video on the right side of this page!)
