About

THAT FARM ANIMAL COULD BE ME!

His friend was talking about a London broil dinner and all he could think about was rescuing that London broil animal. And then there was Jimmy - a little orphaned calf left in a pumpkin patch,  soon to be sent to slaughter.

THAT'S WHEN IT KICKED IN. His heart burst open and he bought a home for Jimmy. It was huge, with acres and acres, and he called it Skylands Animal Sanctuary and Rescue. MIKE hasn’t stopped rescuing farm animals since. 

THE GOOD NEWS WAS SPREADING: "There’s this guy with tattoo’s and long hair - he risks his life to rescue us - he really cares -  there’s hope for us."

HELLO FRIENDS, from Marian & Marc who brought you FREDDIE the Runaway Cow coloring book! We're doing our twelfth book - MIKE & the Rescued Animals.  We want kids to know more about MIKE STURA -  a very special person - doing very special work. Kids will love MIKE and his love for animals.  He is our Superhero!

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO HELP US in making the book happen. Funds are needed for the illustrations, and mailings. No pledge is too small or too big. Any left over will go for formatting and a bunch to sell at Skylands with all profit going to the sanctuary. I've already paid the story editor. Not a penny of the Kickstarter goes to me and my work on the book. I'm just the Little Engine That Could!  Every contributor will be listed in the book! Scroll way down please as there are smaller pledging listed past the biggies at the end. 

TOGETHER we can bring to life a book for the animals, the earth and the children.

 WITH LOVE and HOPE,

MARIAN and MARC  

(marian hailey-moss & marc chalvin)

Risks and challenges

A risk is in the estimating of cost as Marc who lives and works from Paris and is paid in Euros which is higher than the dollar. There are almost 40 interior images plus the cover plus graphics. A challenge is that we show Mike Stura's work in a way that reaches children's hearts.
