More About the Author

Seven-year-old student Maura Lane, published her first book (for children ages 2-6) , SABU & ME. SABU & ME is the story of Maura and her dog Sabu and the wonderful times they spent together during Maura's early life. Written by Maura herself, the book is a re-telling of her earliest memories with her best friend. Since Sabu was a rescue dog Maura thought it was a good idea to donate profits from her book to PAWS Chicago.

Maura's words are complemented by the wonderful illustrations of Hazel Mitchell. Through a rainbow of colors, her illustrations bring the story of SABU & ME to life. Mitchell works from her studio in Maine, and has illustrated many children's books as well as commercial illustrations and painting. Originally from Yorkshire, UK, she has clients worldwide and her art has been received by the British Royal Family. Most days her four dogs and one cat oversee her work schedule.

This is a great story with beautiful illustrations.

The story provides a springboard for children to write about their own experiences with their pets, family and friends.

We have three kids (ages 3,5,7) and they all love this book! It's not only a wonderful story time book to read to little ones but also a great book for young readers. My kids are now asking for a dog because of this sweet story. I would highly recommend!

This is a great story with beautiful illustrations. My two year old loves to recite it from memory taking hints from the pictures. It has quickly become a bedtime favorite.

Format: Hardcover
"Sabu & Me" is a book written by a seven year old girl to benefit the PAWS organization of Chicago which is a No Kill humane organization for animals. The story tells of the relationship between Maura and her dog Sabu, who was rescued by Maura's mother as a puppy before Maura was born. Sabu accompanies Maura on daily life adventures from babyhood to young childhood and school attendance. Sabu is a loyal friend and companion to Maura throughout her days. The delicate illustrations illuminate the text beautifully. "Sabu & Me" is an excellent choice for children age 2 and up, for veterinarian offices, and for children who are adopting a pet. The clear message of compassion and kindness returned a thousandfold is indelible.

Sabu & Me is a wonderful story for young children (ages 2-6 years) who love animals--and what children don't love animals at this age? I bought this book for my four-year-old daughter, herself an avid dog-lover. Not only did she enjoy the tender interactions of Maura and her dog, Sabu, but she loved the vivid and colorful illustrations that truly brought the narrative to life. Our family has been planning to get a dog for some time, and my daughter is convinced that we'll be able to find a dog as wonderful as Sabu at a local animal shelter. Socially conscious and age-appropriate, I have recommended Sabu & Me to other parents; it's a sweet story that all parents and children will enjoy together.
