Ruth Croke learned to read at the age of three and hasn’t stopped reading since! She works in Ireland and New York as a marketing and public relations consultant. She loves all animals and as a member of the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals, she has rescued many pets over the years. Ruth used to be just terrified of mice, but one day she met a friendly little mouse warming his tiny toes by her fireplace. She suddenly realised that they are the cutest – and most misunderstood – creatures on earth. She decided that she was going to represent them and share their funny stories with the world. Because in the end, she knew that all they really needed was some good publicity!
