Mimi, an animal-loving girl, and her loyal three-legged dog, Maty, set out together to rescue any animal that needs help. It's a crazy start to the third grade when the new girl, Emma, brings her pet parakeet, C. C., to school ...only to have him fly out the window and disappear! Mimi and Maty jump into action, showing the whole third grade what rescuing animals is all about.
Keeping track of all the clues in their trusty animal rescue notebook, Mimi and Maty's latest adventure includes an amazing tree house, a harrowing ordeal of getting feathers out of Icky Vicky's hair, and a surprise that Mimi and Maty could never have imagined! Inspired by the real-life Mimi Ausland (founder of freekibble.com) and her special three-legged dog, Maty, this is the third book in the Mimi and Maty series (the first book was the recipient of the 2012 Bookies Bravo Award given to books with positive impact by Milk + Bookies).
Mimi's dedication to helping animals and her meticulous detective skills are sure to inspire young animal lovers and budding private eyes of all ages! This book is for readers ages 6 to 9 and is especially perfect for those young readers who love animals and/or who own a rescued pet from a shelter or humane society.
This is the third book in the series. The book promotes friendship, good citizenship, helping others (people and animals), and believing in oneself. The voice is young and modern and speaks especially to young girls, but can be enjoyed by any young reader. Pictures break up the minimal text, making this a great book for reluctant readers.
