In the new children’s book “The Adventures of McGarvey and Lucky” (published by AuthorHouse), author Mary L. Hennessy tells the charming story of a day in the life of two playful dogs.

In “The Adventures of McGarvey and Lucky” young readers meet McGarvey, a Scottish Terrier, and Lucky, a Cockapoo.

Hennessy takes readers through the canines’ day, from naps and ball-chasing to mealtimes and bath times.

Hennessy, who based her characters off of her real-life pets, uses home photos in place of illustration. An enthusiastic pet owner, she hopes “The Adventures of McGarvey and Lucky” ushers in a new generation of animal lovers.

Targeted to readers aged 4 – 7, the picture book features simple vocabulary and easy storytelling.
