Synopsis

Mimi and Maty to the Rescue! Book 1: Roger the Rat is on the Loose! by Brooke Smith

Meet Mimi and Maty! Mimi is an animal-loving girl, and Maty is her three-legged dog. Together, this fantastic duo sets out to rescue any animal that needs help. When their friend George calls and needs to find a missing rat named Roger, Mimi and Maty jump into action! Keeping track of all the clues in their trusty rescue notebook, Mimi and Maty embark on an adventure that involves their nasty friend Icky Vicky and her brother Dicky, the Pom Pom Pie Place, and one smart dumbo rat! Will Mimi and Maty be successful in their first-ever rescue operation?This paperback edition of the 2012 Milk + Bookies Bravo Award brings the adventures of Mimi and Maty to life with delightful and colorful illustrations by Alli Arnold. Inspired by the real-life Mimi Ausland (founder of the website FreeKibble) and her special three-legged dog friend, Maty, this is a special book for animal lovers of all ages. Kids will learn the value of helping their special animal friends and will hopefully follow in the footsteps of Mimi Ausland, aiding local animal shelters and pet rescues across the country.Sky Pony Press, with our Good Books, Racehorse and Arcade imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of books for young readers? picture books for small children, chapter books, books for middle grade readers, and novels for young adults.
