Today I welcome my friend, K.C. (Karen) Frantzen to the bayou. She is celebrating her second middle grade book in her May the K-9 Spy series. Actually, the book is written by May, the schnauzer, but since May doesn't have thumbs, her mom has to do the actual typing.
After going astray during K9 Service boot camp, May is captured and tries to find a way to the American Embassy in Paris.
Join her and Léonce, a feral cat, as they sniff out an evil plot leading from Benjamin Franklin’s park through the historic Passy Cemetery to The Pantheon… including a journey under the city!
“Kids of all ages will thrill to this fast-paced adventure as May encounters the heart of friendship, the nobility of sacrifice and love of country.” Vince Mooney, retired Air Force K9 flight leader, handler and trainer of two magnificent German Shepherds featured in NATO Day dog shows
Listen to an excerpt
KC and May worked with TW Vanya, the illustrator, to create this beautifully written and illustrated hard cover book.
“I have to tell you that you are one special lady … reaching out to kids and sharing ‘some basic truths’ through your books.”
“Thank you for May Finds a Way. Very enjoyable. Waiting for Book 3, coming soon I hope.”
"Sat down yesterday to start reading your Second book...did not move until I was finished. It was just WONDERFUL !!! Felt like I was in Paris with you Miss May !!! Great read...Highly recommend both Miss May's books to everyone !! Love Ya !!!! Woof, Woof!!"
"I just finished May's second book. What a great read. I'm ordering several as Christmas gifts for my grandchildren. Lots of life lessons and making good decisions from a position of strength. My granddaughters gave the first book 4 thumbs up. I can't wait to see their faces when they discover the second book under their tree."
“I’m only on the first page and it already has me hooked.”
