Children who struggle with being different will identify with Destry Ramey’s playful puppies in her new children’s books in “The Adventures of Hunter and Ramona Pug Series.”
PISMO BEACH, CALIFORNIA – author Destry Ramey will be reading and signing her new book “Why Am I Dark?” August 1, 2009 from 11am – 3pm at B-Wise Book Supply in Arroyo Grande, CA.
The Adventures of Hunter and Ramona Pug Series is inspired by a special friendship with Ramey’s son’s pugs and her own experiences as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, which allowed her to observe how children deal with and respond to crisis situations as well as the everyday obstacles of growing up.
Why Am I Dark? the second book in Ramey’s series inspires children to accept that “Everything that makes you different, makes you special!” Children meet Hunter, a dark-furred pug who faces rejection because of the color of his fur. It is his courage and sister’s wisdom that help him discover the importance and value of being different.
Destry Ramey began her series while battling her third cancer. She found that her son’s pugs provided her with an incredible amount of “healing energy” which she was able to return to them when they developed a similar cancer. All three of them are now doing well.
Engaging full-color illustrations and a little bee named “Sylvester” will delight elementary readers and pug lovers of all ages. It is through the eyes of these two gregarious, warm and loving pugs that the challenges facing today’s children and parents are addressed. Future adventures will tackle: obesity, attention disorder and disabilities.
