Worthy Author Katherine Schwarzenegger Debuts First Children’s Book on Today Show, Access Hollywood, and More

Worthy Publishing is excited to share that bestselling author and animal activist Katherine Schwarzenegger has appeared on a run of national media shows to debut her first children’s book, Maverick and Me (WorthyKids/Ideals, September 2017, 9780824956875).

In support of the book, Schwarzenegger has appeared on the Today Show, FOX & Friends, Kathie Lee & Hoda, Access Hollywood, Extra, Hallmark Home & Family and Good Day LA, as well as in online video features with PeopleNow, Us Weekly and Teen Vogue. Taped interviews with The Doctors and Dr. Oz will air in the coming weeks, continuing a strong presence in the national media.

Based upon the life of Schwarzenegger’s own rescue dog, the book tells the story of Maverick, a lovable, abandoned puppy, and Scarlett, the big-hearted girl who gives Maverick a forever home.

“Adopting a puppy or dog is an incredible opportunity that kids don’t know much about,” says Schwarzenegger. “This book celebrates adoption and introduces the concept to kids so that when they get their first dog, they choose to adopt and not shop.”

Heartfelt and moving, Maverick and Me shows children the importance of pet rescue and empowers them to advocate for animals in need. Parents and kids alike will cherish Maverick’s story of love, friendship, and second chances.

“It’s an honor to work with Katherine, who has such an important message to share with children,” says Peggy Schaefer, Vice President & Associate Publisher, WorthyKids/Ideals. “I’m thrilled that she’s chosen Worthy to partner with her on this project.”
