Portsmouth, NH -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/21/2014 -- Donna Raye, author at children’s book publisher MindStir Media, has written and launched a new children’s book, Edison the Firefly & Debra the Dragonfly (ISBN 978-0991151288). The children’s book focuses on Edison, an inventor who also happens to be a firefly, and his friend, Debra, who happens to be a dragonfly. They love sharing many things together, especially competing in flight. When Debra the Dragonfly becomes ill with cancer and cannot fly, however, Edison stays by his friend’s side and offers his support.
“This is a wonderful book of hope for children with family members who have cancer,” said J.J. Hebert, president of NH book publisher MindStir Media. “The author, Donna Raye, has woven a beautiful story about love, family and friends – and the central message is that that hope and love will prevail.”
Edison the Firefly & Debra the Dragonfly is the fifth book in the Edison the Firefly series. All of the books in the series follow the inventor firefly, but this installment has a special place in the author’s heart. “This book is dedicated to my sister, Debra, who is a cancer survivor,” said Donna Raye. “Deb has bravely battled Sarcoma and has lived way beyond what doctors had predicted. She is an inspiration and I wanted her to know how very much she is loved and admired.”
Edison the Firefly & Debra the Dragonfly, illustrated by Kathy Hoyt, one of the professional children’s book illustrators at MindStir Media, is now available at Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble and other fine retailers worldwide. Wholesale distribution is also available through Ingram. The 28-page paperback retails for $9.99.
