Author Writes Book to Teach Children About Caring for Foster Animals

"The Adventures of Sir Buddy and Mr. Pupples – The Rescue."

Kill Devil Hills, NC, December 09, 2014 --( Author Richard McEwan says that if you teach children how to care for pets, they also learn also how to care for people. That’s one of reasons why he recently wrote the children’s book “The Adventures of Sir Buddy and Mr. Pupples – The Rescue” newly released by Halo Publishing International. Inspired to write because of his grandchildren’s love of books and he and his wife’s love of fostering animals, the book introduces children to fostering a pet and tells a story of the rescue of a lost puppy.

“I hope that when a child sees a stray dog or cat, that they think about the story and how the puppy, Mr. Pupples, was found and saved,” says McEwan. “Once a child finds a stray animal, their next step is to immediately get an adult involved.”

An avid dog-lover who with his wife, Christie, has fostered about 50 dogs over a period of 5 years, McEwan is retired and cherishes their two dogs that they had originally fostered, and a cat that had been a stray kitten. He says fostering animals from your local animal shelter or SPCA is a good way to keep them from being euthanized.

“Pets are great companions. Not only are they fun to be with, they can help you get exercise,” say McEwan who enjoys taking his dogs for walks with his wife. “And, who loves you more than your dog?”

“I think children will love this beautifully illustrated story with a great message about pet care,” said Halo Publisher Lisa M. Umina.

You can purchase “The Adventures of Sir Buddy and Mr. Pupples – The Rescue” at It sells for $16.95. McEwan says he has written two more children’s books with the same two characters – Sir Buddy and Mr. Pupples. They will be released at a later date.

Richard McEwan retired to the Outer Banks of North Carolina after a long career in sales, marketing and advertising. He lives with his wife, Christie, and their two dogs, Buddy and River, one cat named Oyster and many photos of foster dogs. Together, McEwan and his wife, have three children and four grandchildren.
