Twelve-year-old Misha is sad after his best friend moves away and the sudden loss of his grandma, Baba, all in the same week. With a heavy heart and feeling all alone, Misha heads to stay with his grandpa, Deda, where they can give one another a much-needed break from reality.
Without video games, TV, or the internet to distract him, Misha heads out into the Ukrainian countryside of Pirogi, where he befriends an extraordinary gray cat, Marina, and a sweet dog, Leo, who LOVES photography.
Misha learns the truth from Marina and Leo about Farmer Pechkin – the grumpy, maybe misunderstood neighbor Misha has avoided every summer.
When Farmer Pechkin discovers that the animals on Deda’s farm can speak, he calls a town meeting and threatens to separate Misha from his newfound friends.
What will happen when people learn about Misha’s talking animal friends (who are now like family to him)? Will they allow these talking animals to stay on the farm? Heartbroken at the thought of being torn apart, can the trio find a way to stay together?
Misha and His Talking Animals is a story of compassion, family, and friendship written specifically for 8-12 year-olds who need a furry friend (or three!) in their lives.
Children will love the characters, and parents and grandparents will appreciate the themes of empathy, emotional development, and simply being a good person to others.
Support this campaign, and your child(ren) can CO-CREATE this book by helping us select TEN (10!) new scenes with Misha and his talking animal friends!
