Today is Mr. Pish’s birthday. The “Traveling Terrier” was a champion of childhood literacy and outdoor awareness. He was also the mascot of Indies Unlimited.
Though he passed away at the ripe old age of 16, his legacy lives on through his many books, calendars, and even a fun companion app.
His long-time human companion, best friend, and dedicated biographer/transcriptionist is our administrator, K.S. Brooks. Mr. Pish left her a wealth of material with which to carry on with his work in helping children love reading, nature, history, and geography.
We celebrate his life and achievements today. If you’d like to drop by any of Mr. Pish’s social media channels and wish him a happy birthday, or give him a follow or a like, his human would love to hear from you.
