Rush’s first children’s book, “What’s For Breakfast” introduces the often misunderstood Sprint, a sweet cat who just can’t seem to get his human caretaker to understand what he wants. A heartwarming, fun picture book series for kids aged 3-8, to entertain them as well as start them out on healthy eating habits.
Sprint The Cat Book 1: “What’s For Breakfast”
The first in the Sprint The Cat ® book series, Sprint tries again and again to explain what he wants for breakfast, but meets with little success. The book aims to introduce children ages 3-8 to the many options available to them for food in an entertaining, colorful way.
Sprint is based on Rush’s beloved cat in real life. His name is Spike. Spike was named by Rush’s then 7-year-old son, when the family adopted Spike at the Burbank Animal Shelter. Spike was 2 months old at the time.
Rush worked on “What’s For Breakfast” for about 9 months. He pencilled (drew with pencils), inked (added markers) and colored it.
Sprint The Cat Book 2: “The Everything Cat”
Sprint defends his home from numoerous pesky intruders in the second book from Rush Hamden, author and illustrator of the Sprint The Cat ® series.
