Rosanna Porter is a good friend of my parents and she is also the author of a series of children's books. They are about a little mouse named Tofu Ling. She has had two Tofu Ling books published already. So, when she asked me if she could use Lila as a sort of muse, if you will, for her latest installment, I said sure. Lila has now been immortalized as an adorable white mouse in Rosanna's latest book, Tofu Ling and the Angel.
The book is extra awesome because it is dedicated to Lila and two other kids who have fought with a life threatening illness and won. Big time. Some of the proceeds from the sale of this book are going to charities that the three families have chosen. Our charity is The Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke for obvious reasons I would think, but if you still need one, it's because they saved my kids life. In a nutshell.
Added bonus: Lila is a finger puppet. Eeeeeek. How freaking cute is that?
So, I think you should buy it. So, do it already.
