Tiny is a small, quirky mouse who is hungry, lonely and a little bit afraid. But in spite of fear and danger, Tiny exerts confidence and determination to satisfy his needs. Because of his boldness, he makes an unusual friend in the new children's book, "Tiny Makes a Friend" (published by Archway Publishing).

"I saw a photo of a big cat eating with a mouse and thought how unusual and interesting-that would make a good story," says author Eva Schmidler.

As Tiny and his unlikely feline friend grow up, they support and confide in each other. The story points out and unifies differences, and the two friends come to understand that differences can be appreciated. Large or small, meek or intimidating, friends can share and help each other. Tiny and his friend go on an adventure that opens their eyes to what their future may hold.

Through Tiny's ingenuity, the story also showcases the importance of self-reliance and determination. Schmidler hopes "Tiny Makes a Friend" will leave readers with, "A good feeling about themselves (and) a guide to what makes a good friend and to have courage and conviction when making future decisions."
