Marianna Bergues, a 17-year-old student, lives in Narberth, Pennsylvania. She has always loved to write. When she was seven years old, her father told her the story about his friend in Paris who volunteered to watch his friends' pets. Her mother (Roseland Bergues) encouraged her to write a draft of the story. The story was written, stored away, and forgotten.
In 2014, the rediscovered story caught Marianna's interest and imagination again. Both her mother and father encouraged her to finish the story and share it with others. She gives credit for the story to her father, Christian Bergues, who was born and raised in France. It is because of him this book exists. It was his inspiration and co-authoring that made this book possible.
