The imaginary hometown of Malibu, Maine is excited to introduce…


A new children’s book bursting at the seams with animal friends telling birthday stories and making special wishes in the Maine outdoors. The party-goers hope you’ll join them!

See below for pre-order information. We will be shipping the week of December 1st!

If it was your birthday, what would you wish for? That's the question a thoughtful chickadee named Dirigo asks his friends who have traveled from all over Maine's woods, waterways and wilderness to celebrate his birthday. Gathered around the dandelion birthday candle, each animal offers Dirigo a special wish as they take turns telling stories about their own Maine birthdays. 

Explore the wildlife, geography and magic of Maine through this 52-page birthday celebration from the imagination of Maine native, Tonya Shevenell, with water-color illustrations by Laura Winslow.  Shipping the week of December 1st, pre-order yours today for $1 shipping (to U.S. addresses).
