Louisville, KY (PRWEB) May 04, 2012
People say the story of Mine That Bird is the real life story of “Rocky”, except this “Rocky” has four legs. Against all odds, the remarkable little horse from Roswell, New Mexico became the winner of the 2009, 135th Kentucky Derby. Picked to run dead last, with odds against him at 50:1, Mine That Bird’s victory is the second largest upset in Kentucky Derby history.
To coincide with this year’s Kentucky Derby, Mine That Bird’s owner Mark Allen intends to inspire readers around the world with the Bird’s positive story of possibility, “if you believe in it and work at it, anything is possible.” He has released an inspirational and entertaining graphic novel trilogy, At The Gate, In The Stretch and The Finish Line. The books were written by Rod McCall and Price Hall. The book is being self-published by Mine That Bird The Movie, LLC.
The graphic novels depict Mine That Bird's life, challenges and victories. An animated film based on the books is also being considered.
“We're hoping to entertain and motivate kids of all ages (and their families), especially those who think they just don't have a chance,” said Allen.
“Mine That Bird is a story of hope, determination and victory against the odds. We are thrilled to be able to share such a story with the world in a meaningful way,” he added.
The books are available for $12.95 individually, or the trilogy for $29.95. To purchase the books, go to http://www.minethatbird.com. Also follow Mine That Bird at http://www.facebook.com/minethatbirdthemovie and Twitter: @minethatbirdnm.
