“Sherman’s World - Finding Courage” is about a mouse named Sherman who makes a winter home in a firehouse, where he meets Gus, a funny grasshopper, and starts a hilarious training program to become a real firefighter. Picture a mouse doing cardio sprints, sit-ups and jumping jacks!
When spring arrives, Sherman must decide if he should rescue a smelly, wet cat that is stranded in a tree and later, an injured firefighter who needs help. What should Sherman do? What can he do? Will his training be enough to rescue a cat and a firefighter .... and himself? Humor, action and friendship move this story along in short chapters. For readers 7-10 ~ 120 pages

"Sherman's World - Finding Courage"
is a story about friendship, adventure, and accepting your young self as a wonderful "work in progress." I enjoyed writing this children's book since I could combine my own adventures as a volunteer firefighter and my love of a fun story to remind young readers that a good friend is a treasure to keep. I hope Sherman and Gus inspire kids to be kind to those who may appear different to them and know that often, they simply want to have and be a friend.
