Linda Handley loved the adventures of Squeeky and Louie her father read to her when she was child, so when she decided to find new ways to support the American Cancer Society (ACS) publishing her father's old storybook seemed to be the answer.

"My life has been touched by cancer many times. I had just attended a benefit for Congressman Doyle (D - PA). He is a pioneer for cancer legislation. After the event, I knew that I had to find additional ways to support the American Cancer Society. My eyes fell on my father's book on my bookshelf. I decided I would get [Squeeky and Louie] published and offer the proceeds to ACS," Linda explained.

And that's just what she did. On December 14, 2009, Linda published Squeeky and Louie, her father's beloved childhood tale with the help of publisher AuthorHouse and has agreed to donate all the net proceeds generated in 2010 to ACS.

Squeeky and Louie is described on the book's website as a children's tale about two little gray mice and their adventures with Gus the Cat. "What are little, loving mice going to do when they want to come out and play? This turns out to be an easy problem to solve. Well, with a little clever help the two mice lead the reader on a tale of adventure."

F. R Handley has authored an entertaining, interactive treasure that's sure to charm and delight kids from 1 to 91. The simple text is joyous and engaging, but this is really a story told through the marvelous illustrations. The amusing artwork stars endearing little furry friends. Youngsters will love all the captivating facial expressions and wonderful humorous detail in each two page spread. Squeeky and Louie is a masterpiece little ones will beg to read again and again, and a timeless classic to share with friends, family, and future generations.
