Dogs are man's (or a kid's) best friend but when that dog is magical, the relationship is even better! Tillie's Tale by Mindy Mymudes is a new volume in the Magical Drool Mysteries series that has George, the witch's familiar, tracking down the reason a ghost is haunting the puppy Tillie. George, with the help of his girl pup Karly and Karly's Green Witch Auntie Heather, investigates the background of the little girl ghostie that has attached herself to Tillie. By using magic spells and following his incredibly sensitive nose, Karly, Auntie Heather and George track down the apartment where the little girl lived almost a hundred years ago. There, they meet an old woman whose parents had owned the building and they discover some amazing facts about the history of the area, one of which is that bullies are nothing new. How will this group solve a mystery that is so old? Can their magical powers point them in the right direction or is it really too late to give this ghost some peace?

About the Author
While Mindy Mymudes thinks she's best known for her Master's work in biology, she is best known as she who gets run over by the Muddy Paws Pack English Springer Spaniels.
Mindy insists she's the alpha dog; the dogs think she's delusional. She hunts, cleans the den, and keeps them entertained. When the pack allows her to escape, she enjoys digging in the dirt, listening to audiobooks, teaching genetics, and weaving the antics of the pack into stories. The two-legged alpha male, Tall Dude, just shakes his head and stays out of the way.
Mindy is the author of Amazon bestselling children's book GEORGE KNOWS from MuseItUp Press. GEORGE KNOWS also won the Predators and Editors Best Children's book in 2014 and Readers' Favorite Gold Medal for Best Children's Book Grades 4th thru 6th. The second book of the Magical Drool Mysteries, TILLIE'S TALE, was released in March, 2015. The series stars the magical drool-producing basset hound, George. He knows it all, from the environment to history to magic. If he doesn't know it, then it isn't worth knowing. George knows!
