Mutasia to Launch Latest Book with a Series of Children’s Special Author and Illustrator Events ~
Mutasian Entertainment, LLC (www.mutasia.com), a children’s creative entertainment company, is launching its latest hardcover children’s book, ‘Figley’s Search for the Perfect Pet’, for children ages 4-8, on April 5, 2017, with a series of author and illustrator days at Barnes & Noble bookstores.
Author, Suzanne Cotsakos, and author-illustrator, Ryan McCulloch, of ‘Figley’s Search for the Perfect Pet’ will be hosting special interactive events, consisting of book signings, readings, and character drawing tips at various Barnes & Noble bookstores. The events will be open to the public during national story time on Saturday mornings, beginning on April 8, 2017 at the Arden Fair Barnes & Noble in Sacramento.
‘Figley’s Search for the Perfect Pet’ is set on the island of Mutasia, where everyone is a mix of two or more different animals, making it hard to find the perfect pet. But if anyone is up for the challenge, it’s Figley. When his friend, Billie, admits that she’s grown tired of her boring pet pugapillar (a pug-caterpillar mix), Figley sets out to find her the weirdest, wildest, and wackiest pets on the island. He introduces Billie to an assortment of mixed-up critters like a dolphin-pony, lizard-cat, and flamingo-elephant-goldfish; and each critter presents an unexpectedly troublesome trait. As the exotic critters begin destroying her house, Billie starts to reassess what’s really important in a perfect pet.
In addition to the events at Barnes & Noble bookstores, Mutasia, an eight-time winner of the prestigious Mom’s Choice Award and numerous international Honorable Mentions, will also be presenting ‘Figley’s Search for the Perfect Pet’ to elementary schools around the country.
In addition to books, Mutasia has developed an animated TV-pilot, original music, plush toys, as well as mobile coloring book apps available on the iPhone and iPad.
Like the inhabitants of Mutasia, the Mutasian Entertainment family is comprised of unique individuals who have come together and blended their talents in an effort to create a world that will encourage children to explore the outer limits of their imaginations through stories, music, and art. Mutasia strives to “Mix It Up” by creating an environment that encourages creativity and teaches about life’s many lessons in a fun and humorous way.
