Synopsis

Marathon Mouse by Amy Dixon

The mice of NYC dread the day of the New York City Marathon more than any other - the crowds, the large shoes, the noise. All of them, that is, except for Preston. He and his family live underneath the starting line and every year Preston has dreamed of joining all the runners in the marathon. This year, Preston is determined to make his dream come true, even though his family tells him that mice are not fit to run marathons. He trains hard leading up to the big day and when the race starts, he successfully dodges sneakers and crosses the finish line, reaching his goal.

About the Author

Amy Dixon grew up as one of seven siblings, and the only peace and quiet she ever got was inside a book. Once she had her own kids, she rediscovered her love for picture books at the public library. It was the one place she knew all four of her kids would be happy ... and quiet. She writes from her home, where she lives with her four little inspirations and her marathon-running husband, Rob. Sam Denlinger is a writer, illustrator, and cartoonist from Gaithersburg, Maryland. He moved to New York City in 2006 to attend The New School, where he graduated with a bachelor's degree in writing and literature.
