Tate’s Wild Rescue

Jenny’s picture book debut, Tate’s Wild Rescue, will release June 2024 with Crown Books for Young Readers/Random House Children’s.


A sweet, funny picture book about an animal-loving girl who invites wild animals to live in her house and be her best friend. She comes up with the perfect plan: She’ll offer them a better life! To her surprise, none of the animals are interested in her offer. Maybe Tate will have to look a bit closer to home to find her pawsitively perfect match. Tate’s heartfelt hope to rescue a wild animal, combined with the blunt hilarity of their responses, makes this charming story perfect for anyone wild about animals!

Back matter also offers ideas for children on how they can help both wild and companion animals.

“An appealing invitation to consider the nuances in there being ‘no place like home.'” —Kirkus
