Teaching Kids #AdoptNotShop with Hand-Painted Book

Companionship and the importance of adopting rescue animals are the main themes in author and artist Donna Carr Roberts’ adorable new story, “The Adventures of Mr. Fuzzy Ears.” The first installment in a series, “The Adventures of Mr. Fuzzy Ears: Searching for a Furry Friend” tells the story of a furry small dog called Mr. Fuzzy Ears, who is lonely in the house by himself and goes looking for a companion to play with.

Mr. Fuzzy Ears begins his search in all the wrong places and finds animals that aren’t quite right for him until his owners finally take him to the Humane Society. There, he meets a variety of animals and listens to their stories about how they came to live at the society. In the end, Mr. Fuzzy Ears gets to go home with not one, but three new friends to play with at home. The book is based directly on Roberts’ own pets at home—the main one being Scamp the dog, who inspired the character Mr. Fuzzy Ears.

One of the most intriguing parts of this book are the traditional watercolor paintings it boasts, which were hand-painted by Roberts herself. “Unlike most children’s books today, I created all the artwork in this book in original watercolors,” says Roberts. “I hope these bring back an old-fashioned feel to the story that will enchant young and old alike.”

Kirkus Reviews describes “Mr. Fuzzy Ears”: “A beautifully illustrated, informative tale with a plucky, likable protagonist… Roberts aptly weaves the important work of the Humane Society into a sweet, engaging story.”

Readers are sure to fall in love with the characters in Mr. Fuzzy Ears’ adventures and eagerly await their new adventures in future books.
