Meow cat lovers! Local authors donate 500 books to Animal Charity for Petco cat adoption events
WALNUT CREEK, California—November 6, 2013—, Walnut Creek residents and animal tale authors will donate up to 500 books to The Community Concern for Cats “Meet the Author” Events at the Walnut Creek Petco location on November 9th and December 7th from 1:00-4:00 pm.
The books will be signed and personalized for the first 500 donors as a “Thank You” for any donation to featured charity, Community Concern for Cats, a registered 501-c-3 not-for-profit, based in Walnut Creek dedicated to helping homeless cats. Authored by Todd Friedman and Megan Andrews, Walnut Creek residents, “My Secret Life as Peanut” is based on the true story and shenanigans of Sassy, a next-door neighbor’s calico cat. Peanut, the calico cat featured in the children’s book “My Secret Life as Peanut,” is the star in the true animal tale featuring a curious, covert, and mischievous calico cat living a double life. The animal tale is written for early readers, ages five to nine, but offers just as much fun and entertainment for parents, grandparents, family members and animal lovers. The Five Star rated book by Midwest Book Review is a fun read for all ages and ideal to help children learn and improve reading skills.
“What began as our neighbor’s coy calico cat visiting our house became this touching and unbelievable adventure in writing and pictures,” said Friedman. “Since Sassy, aka Peanut, was originally adopted by our neighbors, we partner with animal support charities and rescues and contribute a portion of all revenues to help animals in need.”
These 1st edition donated books are 96 pages with 39 color photos or illustrations. Written from the cat’s perspective, readers gain insight into Sassy’s secret life as Peanut, while also learning interesting cat facts and figures. The book retails at local bookstores and online for $12.50.
