For over a year, Rachael Peters has been traveling all over America with her canine sidekick, Abbi. Starting December 16, readers of all ages will enjoy a fun new story inspired by the pair's adventures, learning about the United States along the way. —
With Abbi's bandana missing in the days before a special hometown parade, the newest release from Lucid Books details the adventure-filled, cross-country search for the beloved accessory. Abbi's American Adventures: The Search for the Missing Bandana is now available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Authored by Rachael Peters and illustrated by Sarah Vega, the hardcover will be especially accessible and appealing to readers aged eight through eleven and will capture the imagination of younger readers as well.
"One of the most rewarding things about this industry is having the chance to meet and work with talented young authors," said Lucid Books Director of Publishing Services Sammantha Lengl, "We're truly proud of what Rachael has accomplished with Abbi's American Adventures, and we think the new book is going to be a tremendous hit. Rachael has a fantastic way of turning her real-life experiences with Abbi into the kinds of storybook adventures that every child loves. With the book now available at Amazon, we think many families are in for some fun, educational reading as they follow Abbi and her mom around the country in the search for the missing bandana."
Since 2006, Lucid Books has been working with talented authors in an innovative partnership publishing model. Combining the flexibility and accessibility of self-publishing with the support and feedback traditionally provided by large publishers, the company's approach has proven its value across hundreds of books since.
Born and raised in a small East Texas town, author Rachael Peters is a 2008 graduate of Texas Tech University. Peters received a special surprise alongside her diploma when a roommate's parents presented her with Abbi, a vivacious Australian Shepherd mix who had been rescued in Midland, Texas.
After relocating to Houston and becoming involved with the local community, Peters and Abbi decided to spend 2015 indulging in their shared love of traveling. Covering 32 states that year alone and continuing into 2016, the two have chronicled their real-life experiences on a popular blog.
Those adventures have since become the inspiration for Abbi's American Adventures: The Search for the Missing Bandana. Available beginning December 16, the new release from Houston-based Lucid Books will make for some of the year's most enjoyable, exciting reading. Readers will root for Abbi and her mom as they search and learn about the country from East to West, hoping to find the dashing bandana before meeting with the mayor at an important hometown parade. Orders for Abbi's American Adventures: The Search for the Missing Bandana can be arranged now at Amazon.com and BN.com.
