Publisher's Description

Dog lover and animal advocate Katherine Schwarzenegger draws from her own experience with fostering and adopting dogs to create a picture book that introduces children to the concept of "adopt, don’t shop." 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.

Together, Maverick and Katherine spread a message of hope, defying all odds, and the joys of finding forever friends through pet rescue.

    This is a beautiful story of how one woman's love helped an abandoned and ill puppy get a second chance at life and a forever home. It is beautifully illustrated.

    This rescue dog story came at the perfect time. Our friends recently rescue an old dog who had many health issues (among other issues!) and the community rallied around to help him. Maverick and Me is a simple and lovely story about a dog named Maverick who was in a similar situation. When Maverick is found, he was hopeful to get a new home. The illustrations are cute and help to tell the story to children (and adults) who want to read a story of connection and how we can make a difference in a small or big way.

    This is a fantastic children's book. I love the story and the illustrations. This really makes me want to adopt a pet. That is what I did when I got my last cat. This made me laugh and cry. I think that little children and parents will fall in love with this story. I received a copy of this book from the author for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

    Maverick and Me made me think of my own children and actually several times where we were in the same position, and ended up with a new member of our family.

    The author introduces us to the rescuer and the store that opens it heart for a place where rescued animals can find forever homes. All are needed in the in the process to help find a new forever home.

    There are so many dogs in need, and this story will tug at your heartstrings, but with such a happy ending. Just be aware that there is a need, and this shares with the young ones, a sweet story along with delightful, colorful illustration.

    I received this book through Worthy Kids/Ideas Publishing, and was not required to give a positive review.
