Hello Readers, Writers and Animal Lovers!

Hilary Hyland is the author of the award-winning children's book, THE WRECK OF THE ETHIE.

She loves to share her stories with kids of all ages. And, if you have a cool principal, teacher or librarian, she'll visit your school with her own gentle Newfoundland dog (either Teddy Bear or Miss Mouse) Really.

Here's the deal...the Newfie gets to snooze and drool while receiving gillions of pets and hugs. You get to learn about historical fiction while having fun!

Enjoy the adventure of reading. Reach for the stars!

"You think that these dogs will not be in Heaven! I tell you they will be there long before any of us."

--- Robert Louis Stevenson
