Adventure... True adventure creates the best stories to tell. If that is a correct statement, Marvin will be the leader of the rac...onteurs for the rest of his life. When Dave Howard was thinking of a new story, he wanted to honor his mentor, or as Dave would say, “tormentor”, Walter “Helm” Horosko. Helm was known to say things like “Is your name Xerox? If I wanted a copy I would have copied it.” “Is your name Kodak? If I wanted a picture of it I would have taken a picture.” Helm pushed Dave into painting and sculpting as well. He told Dave to work outside of his comfort zone. He said “Paint what you feel not what you see.” Helm and Marvin state “Be yourself don't try to become someone else. Let them be themselves and you be you.” Remember, you should be an individual. Be you. Marvin wants to be a magician, not a musician, nor a beautician. He does have a love for magic all inclusive. His ways of fnding it becomes all intrusive. Meeting some interesting folk along the way, sometimes friends, sometimes prey. There is a Marvin and his friends in all of us. The wonderers, the dreamers, the helpers, the ones who show you and the ones who tell you. The idea of a true adventure isn't gone because of the internet or television. Adventure is in your heart, your mind, and your soul. Someone who is a wonderer and dreamer is Dave's pal, Larry. He is a writer of the fake and the fun, the weird...the underdogs. Larry has written thousands of articles for various publications from print to digital media outlets. He is no stranger to the written word. Dave called on his buddy for some insight into the story that was to become “Marvin The Magic Mouse”. They worked together, as they have done many times, to create a book that is most certainly not just for kids. With a versatile list of words, an exciting adventure that features twists, turns, and hanging-by-your-tail action, this may be the most exciting book on the planet! Take that leap. Marvin did. You can as well.

This story is based on true events. It is said that “a picture is worth a thousand words.” This citation could not have been truer... than for a nine-year old named Vivienne Harr. It happened one day when she went with her Dad to visit her favorite museum located in the beautiful city of Plesanton, California, where she lived her fairy tale life with her family. As she stared at the photographs of the famous photographer, Lisa Kristine, of two children gazing down a cliff and carrying huge stone slabs on their backs, twice their weight. “Dad!” she shouted, “why are these children carrying those huge stones, why are they not at school, or playing?! Why are they wearing those huge shoes?! One bad step and they would fall into the abyss, and ... oh, no!” "Princess, it’s because those children are slaves" her dad said. “Slaves? Are there still slaves?” "Yes, my child, there are still millions of them.” "Dad, what are we going to do, what are we going to do?!" Vivienne shouted, feeling a lump in her throat. As she swallowed, her heart dropped to her stomach. "Darling, what can we do for them?" "Free them, Dad" she, "we must free them." And this has been the mission of this extraordinary girl ever since. Accompany Vivienne Harr in an impossible odyssey who is demonstrating that, in order to achieve the unattainable, one needs compassion, love, lots of action, and a good pitcher of lemonade.
