Duck Dares to Dream in New Children’s Book by Raymond Copp

coverCopp

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Carolyn Quimby” by Raymond Copp.

A farm duck has a series of adventures in this new children’s chapter book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

 “Sometimes loving someone means you have to let them go…” For Carolyn Quimby, a white duck, life on the farm isn’t enough; instead, she dreams about flying with wind blowing through her feathers, even though everyone knows farm ducks can’t fly. This new chapter book features Carolyn and her friends who live on Farmer Wilson’s farm in a story filled with friendship and love.

“Carolyn Quimby” stars a charming cast of characters, including Clomper, a Belgian draft horse who is the oldest animal living on the farm, and Professor Hopatoadalopolos, a wise toad who lives in Trickling Brook and is rumored to be older than the farm itself. After mallard ducks visit the farm’s pond, Carolyn is given a surprising invention that might help her achieve her dream. Her father, Peanuts Quimby, had his own flying adventure, thanks to a traveling circus.

A daring rescue from hunting dogs, a kitchen visit that creates havoc and new friends for the farm bring excitement to all who live there. It’s not until she faces loss, however, that Carolyn will find the courage to act on her dream and learn how to fly. Whimsical watercolor illustrations by Mary Manning bring the characters to life, showing clearly the bonds of friendship they share.

Author Raymond Copp is a clinical psychologist specializing in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Copp, who had a 30-year career in law enforcement, also serves as a battalion chaplain with the Maryland Army National Guard. He became a Catholic priest after 9-11. Copp has written eight children’s picture and chapter books as well as poetry.

Mrs. D. Releases First Book in Series Starring Mouse with Taste for Adventure

coverMrsD_Carlo

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.”
