Punta Gorda, FL – Camille Blue Amy is the author of two popular children’s books: Marshall and His Green High-Tops and Marshall’s First Snowfall.

“Kids are always excited about Marshall and they read it over and over and over again,” says Camille. “I read in schools and libraries and I wear green high-tops and the kids love to see me with the high-tops on.”

Camille says being an author never occurred to her until she spotted a mouse in her Ontario cottage.

“One summer I saw a little mouse peering down at me in the laundry room,” recalls Camille. “He couldn’t see very much looking down through the crack in the floor. All he could see were shoes. That’s how I came up with the green high-tops.”

Originally published in 2007, Marshall and His Green High-Tops tells the story of Marshall Mouse who lives with his doting parents Mortimer and Mabel and his uncles Grant and David. Marshall longs to wear green high-top sneakers just like humans do. With those special shoes, Marshall believes he will be better at this favorite game of baseball. His Uncle Grant warns that mice don’t wear shoes, but becomes part of the family plan to make the shoes a birthday surprise for Marshall. Will the shoes help Marshall improve his game or will his uncle’s words prove true?

“Most parents like books that teach a lesson,” says Camille. “Whenever I read the books to children, I ask them what the lesson might be, and there’s always a little boy or girl who says, ‘Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it.’”
