I received a copy of Maverick and Me from Worthy Publishing as a member of the Maverick and Me Launch Team. Katherine was kind enough to take a couple of minutes during one of her singing to briefly chat with me. Be sure to scroll down for my interview with Katherine. BE AWARE: THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS.
Summery: In the heartwarming story of Maverick and Me, Maverick is rescued by a kind-hearted stranger after being dumped on the side of the road. The little puppy’s luck takes a turn for the better when young Scarlett meets him at an adoption event. Scarlett is so moved by Maverick’s story that she and her mother decide to give him the forever home he is looking for. Each year, millions of dogs find themselves in shelters and with animal rescues through no fault of their own. Maverick will help teach children about these dogs and empower even young readers to advocate for shelter pups.
Review: Maverick and Me is an adorable story of pet adoption. What I loved most was that Katherine used the story of her own rescue dog, Maverick, as the inspiration for the story.
As a dog lover, and advocate of #adoptdontshop, I loved the idea that the book teaches children the importance of adopting animals.
While the story is fairly simple (after all it is a children’s book), about a rescue dog, Maverick, being adopted and finding his forever home, it is a great book. The illustrations were done by Phyllis Harris and were such a great addition to the story.
While Maverick and Me is a children’s book the heartwarming story along with the beautiful illustrations makes this the perfect story for children, adults and animal lovers alike.
