On the shelves at the Barrington Area Library, there’s an
autographed copy of the children’s book “Mookie & The Christmas
Tree” with the inscription: "For My Hometown Library BARRINGTON! – SW
Daly & Mookie (pawprint)."
Sue Daly’s hometown library, the Barrington Area Library, will be
displaying original illustrations for the book in the library’s “Gallery
in The Library” through January 1. Library patrons can meet and talk
with Sue Daly at an artist’s reception on Friday, December 10 starting
at 7 pm. How Sue Daly came to be the illustrator for the Mookie
series written by Judith Kristen and featuring Mookie the Cat along with
Pup Buddy Henley is a tale in serendipity. Just before the call from
Author Judith Kristen came, Daly’s own dog had disappeared. Her dog had
been gone for three days, and after he returned, Daly pledged she was
going to do something to help no kill pet shelters.
Daly said, “Just a couple of months later, I received the call from
Judith after she had seen my illustrations at the printer the same time
another of her books was being printed. She thought my work would be
perfect for her upcoming Mookie series. She told me there was one catch –
a large percentage of profits from the books would be donated to no
kill pet shelters. I got goosebumps.”
The collaborative partnership between Kristen and Daly has since
produced five Mookie books, and Daly is now at work writing and
illustrating her own book to be entitled “Dude Dog’s Dreams” expected to
publish in the summer of 2011. Once again, she’ll be donating profits
to no kill pet shelters.
For more information on the artist and the December 10 reception,

be display at the Barrington Area Library through January 1.
