Product Description

The first book in the Sprint The CAT series is titled "What's For Breakfast?" It is a children's picture book intended to entertain children ages 3-8, and encourage them to eat healthy food. It is a dialogue between a person and an animal friend, Sprint. The person speaks in speech bubbles and suggests foods that Sprint could eat for breakfast. The cat rejects the suggestions, and tries to convince his human friend to give him a fish. The person simply doesn't get it, escalating the drama and the humor as the book continues to its conclusion, where the cat finally wishes for a fish. Will he get it, and how?

From the Author

From Rush Hamden:
This book is literally all about my cat Spike. He is such a cool cat, Ever since we adopted him in 2018, he's been a huge blessing to our family. He's been our greatest inspiration, and has launched so many book series ideas. Our son loves him so much and treats Spike with so much respect and kindness. He is such a good friend to Spike!
It took me over a year of fun but hard work to write, illustrate and complete "Sprint The CAT: What's For Breakfast?" I drew Spike in many different positions and practiced illustrating his poses and gestures. I took hundreds of photos of him around the house and studied them carefully.
I enjoyed the process. Believe it or not, there were times where I was almost ready to give up! But I didn't, and I am so happy I kept going, because otherwise I wouldn't have this wonderful book published right now. What kept me going? Faith, and the hope that someday kids all over the world will enjoy this book series, have fun, laugh and ask for healthy meals.
I hope you enjoy reading this book with your parents, friends, relatives, and maybe you'll even read it to your animal-friends!

About the Author

Rush Hamden is an illustrator, graphic novel artist specializing in American Comic & Anime/Manga, children’s book author, writer. Rush is also an art teacher, teaching for years in the Southern California school system, as well as on the Skillshare platform. He has taught (and continues to teach weekly) hundreds of students how to: draw using shapes; add ink; color using watercolors; use perspective; and sculpt fun characters!

In 2020, Rush was hired by the California School System and went from "Artist In-Residence" to a "Board-Certified Art Instructor" in the Burbank Unified School District. This was a great promotion and blessing for him, and gave him financial freedom to help support his family and begin drawing children's books more regularly. That's when "Sprint the CAT" and other series were birthed.

Now Rush creates freelance art, training films, children's books and graphic novels from his home studio in Burbank. He’s a devoted husband and work-from-home dad. In 2020, Rush published his first and long awaited children’s book: “Sprint the Cat: What’s For Breakfast? (Sprint the CAT #1)” This has been a labor of love for over a year. It was hand drawn and inked, inspired by the Hamden family’s adoption of a cute, sweet kitten named Spike from the local Burbank Animal Shelter. The first book is based on a silly conversation that Rush had with Spike, the family cat, one morning. From that simple interchange, a 45-page children’s book was born. Book 2 was set for release in January of 2021. Rush is working on three other series, all starring cats, all born of the love of his son for their adopted shelter cat, Spike.
