“The Mouse Tails of Dewey Alowishus”: an entertaining story introducing a fearless and adventuresome mouse. “The Mouse Tails of Dewey Alowishus” is the creation of published author Linda McKenna Hohertz, a married mother and grandmother currently working with elementary-age children after a thirty-year career teaching high school English.

Linda shares her main character’s story, “Let me introduce myself. My name is Dewey Alowishus. My story begins with my name, which is in the title of the story. My mama said that before she gave birth to me and my brothers and sisters, she went out one morning and saw the beautiful glistening dew on the grass. Right then, she decided that one of her babies would be named Dewey. Then, later as she was just finishing work on her nest to have her babies, she looked up into the sky as darkness approached and saw a dazzling, shooting star. She closed her eyes and made a wish as she knew this was a good sign. Later when I was born, she told me that my name Dewey came from the dew, Al came from my father, and “owish” came from “oh wish upon a star” whenever you look up into the sky.
As time went by living on the farm where I was born, I began to think and dream about the world beyond the farm. I went about my chores and played with my brothers and sisters, but in my heart, I knew there was so much more of life for me to live and find out about. So instead of curiosity getting the cat, it got the mouse! I waited for the opportunity to go on an adventure, and it came.
The McAffees, who owned the farm along with the grandmother, were loading the truck to leave the farm. I did not know where they were going, but I got my backpack ready and scurried up the tire of the truck running under Grandma's legs. Away we went! It was so exciting when we stopped and got out. I could never have imagined what was before my eyes and what I would experience that day.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Linda McKenna Hohertz’s new book is a lighthearted and charming story for elementary-age children.
