Red Umbrella Press is pleased to announce the publication of 'The Terribly Tall Tales of EnzoB: Born to Race'.

The first of a projected four-part adventure series has revved into high-octane reality with the imminent release of 'Born to Race'. This imaginative, entertaining book about a dwarf beagle, named after an Italian racing legend, with a whopping passion to become the world's first Formula 1 canine will be launched in Australia in April 2010.

Happy-go-lucky, plucky and extremely focused, EnzoB is impatient to realise his dreams, though aware that being "different" brings special challenges. There are some beautifully tender moments around themes of diversity and tolerance, alongside the intrigue and adventure of outback road rallying as EnzoB navigates treasure hunts, riddles, clues and crafty encounters with competitors.

About the Author: Luscheyne Mellon

Luscheyne was born and raised in Durban, South Africa. Corporate life settled her in Sydney and she now calls Australia home. In 2009, she snapped the corporate leash to create the space to pursue her own dream of writing a children's series.

This tall tale is inspired by her adopted beagle, Enzo, who was born with a rare condition making him half the size of ordinary beagles, and blessed with twice the determination. With Enzo by her side for inspiration, Luscheyne set off on a joyous creative adventure to write her first book and has decided to self publish this series.
