A young girl and her friends know there’s more than meets the eye when lakefront construction work unearths a mysterious floating mass in this new middle-grade book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Connecticut’s Northwest Hills conjure up images of winding country roads, 18th century clapboard houses, spectacular fall foliage, and the next Christmas tree for Rockefeller Plaza. Briarwood Cove, a fictional Norman Rockwellesque hamlet ensconced deep in these hills, conjures up one additional thing – paranormal activity. It’s a good thing eleven-year-old adopted Chinese empath/precognitive Ling-Ling Turner is a resident. Ling-Ling is a PPI (Paranormal Private Investigator). When strange things happen in town, most adults either “pooh-pooh” them or come up with a logical explanation. Ling-Ling knows better – she is a firm believer in the veracity of paranormal activity, who delves into bizarre occurrences to seek the truth.

In Ling-Ling Turner, PPI: Mystery of the Rising Island, doom casts a shadow over Briarwood Cove when blasting at a lakefront construction site releases a floating stink pile of muck from the depths of frosty Lake Tahaso. Coyotes arrive in town, and mysterious attacks on domesticated animals occur at night. While the local police deem coyotes responsible for the attacks, Ling-Ling and her friends Chloe, Jada, and Pablo discover the truth: the tiny town is under the spell of a revived massive ancient Indian curse!

Author Laura J. Stegmaier has written children’s fiction in a variety of media, including graphic novels, internationally broadcast animated television series, audio books and comic strips. The deep woods surrounding her longtime home in the rural Northwest Hills of Connecticut, as well as her belief in otherworldly and paranormal phenomena, inspire her writing.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Carlo the Mouse Book 1: Too Many Rules for One Little Mouse” by author.

A children’s book author pens her latest book featuring a young mouse who doesn’t like to follow the rules in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Carlo the Mouse, who was born inside a Florida hospital and lives within its walls, longs to see the outside world. This charming new children’s book, the first in a series starring the rascally little fellow, features his first adventure. Although his parents do their best to teach him how to follow the rules, his desire to explore leads to nothing but trouble.

 In “Carlo the Mouse, Book 1: Too Many Rules for One Little Mouse,” the young mouse’s parents are running themselves ragged to feed their hungry child, evading mousetraps and tricking the staff in the kitchen. Carlo imagines that the kitchen – which smells delicious – is a fun place to hang out, not realizing the danger it holds. His favorite food is Italian, and he wants to visit Italy – just for the food. His parents try telling him the rules for living in a hospital, but Carlo wonders if he really has to follow them. Their only hope is that their son can use his wits and can remember to follow the rules if he wants to explore. Younger children can follow along with colorful cartoon images by Chanoa, a talented freelance illustrator who works on children’s books and anime.

This is the fifth book for author Olga D’Agostino, also known as Mrs. D. She has a business school degree and immigrated to the United States from western Ukraine in 1992. Her other illustrated books include “Carlo the Mouse on Vacation,” “The Trees Have Hearts” “Good Morning, World!” and “The City Kittens and the Old House Cat.” “The Trees Have Hearts” was awarded a 2013 Mom’s Choice Award. She is already working on several other books for children, including more adventures starring Carlo the Mouse, and “Runaway Clothes,” “The Mysterious Life Inside a Closet,” “Everyone Needs Someone: The Royal Palm,” “Who Is Most Important in the Fridge” and “That Is How Things Are.”
