Hurricane Hound

On Monday's show author Gia Lee and artist Jason Davis stopped by to tell us about a new child's book, HURRICANE HOUND. HURRICANE HOUND is the story of Hanz, a hound dog, who was raised to be a hunting dog, but when he no longer wants to hunt, his cruel owner neglectfully ties him to a tree. With a hurricane fast approaching and Hanz deserted by his former owner, his fate lies in the capable and loving hands of a lady who has frequently seen Hanz tied to a tree while out jogging. Will she take action to save him or just ignore his barks for help, like many others who have also passed by him? This children's picture book is about the concepts of taking loving responsibility for your pets, while at the same time embracing their unique personalities, as well as about humanely helping out animals in need when possible. This book is appropriate for ages 9-12 and can be found at most online book retailers and local stores. For more on Gia Lee's books or to order Hurricane Hound, visit
