A newly published book, I AM STEVIE MOUSE, tells the story of how Dorothy Berry-Lound, an artist living in Italy, found a sick kitten, drowning in a puddle. Rescuing her changed both of their lives.
"There had been a terrible thunderstorm" explains Dorothy. "I went out to check the damage in the garden and saw what I thought was a mouse laying in a puddle. Then I shrieked because I realized it was a dying kitten." Dorothy rescued the kitten and it survived, but then followed several months of drama with the kitten recovering only to relapse. She named the kitten Stevie Mouse. "We kept being told the kitten wouldn't make it, but Stevie Mouse and I had other ideas."
This beautiful new book explores the story of Stevie Mouse, her struggle to survive, her relationships with other household pets and how she grew up to be a great art model for her human artist Mum. The book is, of course, illustrated with pictures of Stevie Mouse.
The book is available from Blurb...
