SUNRISE, Fla. - Sept. 4, 2014 - PRLog -- Patches, a children’s book is now available in both print and e-book edition. Patches is a novel targeted at the middle grade audience and focuses on several issues including animal abuse and neglect as well as the importance of accepting others.  Patches is published by Christine F. Anderson Publishing and Media and was released on August 20, 2014.

"We are pleased to have Elizabeth Grace as part of the CFA family. We fell in love with Patches and know young children everywhere will do the same," said Christine F. Anderson, CEO of Christine F. Anderson Publishing & Media.

According to ASPCA, there are millions of animals living in the streets and a large reason for this is that many pet owners simply abandon them. In the book, Patches, the main character is a calico cat that is abandoned in South Florida. Along with the issues of animal abandonment, the book also addresses bullying. In the book, long haired cats and short haired cats do not get along because they do not accept the way the other looks. By addressing topics like animal neglect and bullying, Elizabeth Grace hopes to raise awareness for these topics to children at a young age.

“Although the topics addressed in the book are very serious, the book itself is still very fun and enjoyable for children,” Elizabeth Grace, author of the book said. “Animal abuse and neglect as well as bullying are a big problem in South Florida and beyond. My hope is that children reading this book will understand the importance of properly caring for pets and being kind to one another.”

Patches is available through Amazon for $3.99 for Kindle Version and $10.99 for Print Edition. To purchase the book, visit
