AUTHOR Bio and Links:
Stefan Piccione has enjoyed a lifelong passion for the ocean, an unrelenting love of surfing, and a great appreciation for a well-crafted story. This combination would eventually inspire him to write a children’s book about a courageous young surfing mouse. Stefan graduated from Fairfield University with a degree in film and a minor in Italian studies. Having written a myriad of songs, short films, a feature film, web series, and numerous children’s books, “The Surfing Mouse” is his very first children’s book. Outside of writing and surfing, Stefan enjoys playing guitar, soccer, basketball, and beach volleyball. He is an avid environmentalist, regularly cleaning up ocean and coastline plastic while out on his paddleboard or walking the beautiful beaches of Rhode Island. Stefan currently resides on the coast of Eastern Connecticut.
A little mouse loves to surf, but does he have the nerve to face his fears? The surfer mouse goes out on a beautiful day. The beach shows lovely gentle waves, but for a mouse the waves are the perfect size. He enjoys the smaller waves until a much bigger wave comes in. As he sees the size of it he paddles as fast as he can to catch the right spot. It is too big for him and he has a rough time, barely getting back to shore in one piece. But, instead of giving up for the day, the surfing mouse decides to face his fear head on. He goes out to meet the wave and catches it in just the right time. He rides the huge wave and lands on the sand. He gets a lot of cheering from the other mice on the beach! This book shows children how to face their fears and overcome them.
