TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Children were given the chance on Saturday to meet the author and illustrator of a new children’s book, as well as have their book signed.
Author Kim Kimbler and illustrator Becky Hochhalter of the book “The Perils of Pixie” were signing books.
Children also had the opportunity to meet Pixie, a dog who lived in an animal shelter before finding her home. The book is centered around the adventures of Pixie, along with bible versus on the pages as well.
“That kind of interaction is really important to me in this day and age to have kids that are more interested in a book on a Saturday morning than in the TV,” Hochhalter said.
A portion of the proceeds from book sales will go towards local animal shelters.
