Dynamite’s First Children’s Book, ‘Saved By A Whisker,’ Set For An October Release
by Erik Amaya
Dynamite Entertainment enters a new market this October with the release of its first children’s book, Saved by a Whisker.
Written by Kristen Rybandt and illustrated by Ken Haeser, it tells the true story of cat named Cozmo. As his loving family prepares to move across the country, he escapes only to be left behind a thousand miles away from everything he knew and loved. But as the book will detail, Cozmo is reunited with his family, with an assist from the Saved Whiskers rescue shelter.
“It was really fun writing a story from a cat’s perspective,” Rybandt said in a statement. “I hope everyone loves it as much as we love cats.”
Haeser added, “I was honored to be asked to do the illustrations for Dynamite’s first children’s book. I’ve had some cat drawing experience, so I jumped at the chance to do it again. I think anyone who has kids or loves cats will really like this book.” As it happens, proceeds from sales of the book will go to Saved Whiskers Rescue Organization, a 501(c)3 registered non-profit animal welfare organization.
Saved by a Whisker will be available in both book stores and comic book shops this October.
