Author Biography

Merav has two great loves which have stayed with her ever since she was a young girl-writing (mainly poetry) and dogs (all kinds!). Over the years, she has found various ways to express these passions. About a decade ago, out of a desire to respond to and grow her love for those creatures, she became a professional in training and behavioral treatment for dogs. As part of that, Merav began incorporated her second great love--writing on topics connected with the world of dogs, both for children and for adults.
As a firm believer that raising dogs and observing their behavior can teach us many important life lessons, she decided to write a series of rhyming books for children which use dogs' world. The purpose of the books is to share with a younger generation valuable life lessons in compassion, responsibility, generosity, and acceptance. Thus, Mozzi was born, along with this new series of books.

Mozzi Presents: My Special Friends by Merav Gamliel Boschan is a collection of rhyming verses that will introduce young readers to Mozzi's friends. Gulliver is the new dog and has no friends, and then he meets Lucy and becomes friends with her. Little Toy is blind but he enjoys the world without seeing it, and his life is full of happiness. Though Blackie is a big dog, there is nothing to fear; he is calm, polite, and gentle and all the kids love him. Molly is a bit bigger than average size but a lovely dog with intelligent eyes. Then there's Cookie, Toffee, Rexie, Goldie, Clover, and Lucky, who are all different yet unique in their own way. These animals will teach children acceptance, responsibility, compassion, generosity, and kindness through their behavior.

I love the way the author conveys messages to young readers through Mozzi's friends. The verses for each of these dogs are delightful and they teach readers life lessons in a beautiful way. Every dog is different yet has something positive to teach readers with their behavior. The illustrations by Ambadi Kumar are adorable and give the dogs their own personality and individuality along with breathing life into the scenes. The series 'Mozzi Presents' is a must-have in every home where there are children and animal lovers as they will teach kids how important it is to observe dogs and learn positive things from them. The book is also good to use in classrooms for poetry reading sessions because of the important messages. It will also encourage children to try their hand at writing rhyming poems.
