Have you ever owned a puppy? Mayra’s book “Crash!” is all about getting your first puppy.
“Marcelo is thrilled when he gets a golden retriever puppy for his birthday, but now he faces one of the toughest jobs of his life, not only because owning a pet is a huge responsibility, but because he has to find the perfect name for it—and that’s hard!”

Mayra loves golden retrievers and it shows. She donates 50% of her royalties to the “Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary” where you can learn more about adopting or sponsoring a golden retriever in need. She also has links to many retriever sites on the Crash the puppy blog. One more thing, she runs the Pets and Their Authors blog.

Another of Mayra’s many talents, she’s the Latino Book Examiner over at Examiner.com. Speaking of that, Crash! Is now available in Spanish! I personally think it’s great when books are available in more than one language. More children can now enjoy Crash!

Let’s see how Mayra takes Crash! Beyond reading. Over at the Crash the puppy blog she has links to coloring pages, puzzles, games and more. Also, woven into the story are tips on naming and taking care of your puppy.
