ATLANTA (March 25, 2013) – The Daily Rounds of a Hound by Ed Payne and illustrated by Britt Sekulic is the tale of Molly Malone – an adorable mutt adopted from an animal shelter by a new family. Once home, the family learns that Molly is carrying stowaways – a litter of nine pups. Molly has no pedigree, but takes her job as family pet seriously. She patrols the house, protects the kids and goes on secret missions (or does she?).
The Daily Rounds of a Hound is the first children’s picture book by Marietta, Georgia-based Ed Payne, an Emmy award- and Peabody award-winning journalist for CNN. The book’s quirky rhyming style is inspired by the books we all grew up with. “While Molly’s story is a very personal one for my family, ultimately, it’s the story of everyone’s dog, our love for them and how much we get in return,” Payne said.
