Jenni and I are joined by director, producer and writer Blake Freeman. He recently launched a series of children books about a young girl, Haibu, who deeply cares about animals.

His first book Haibu: Lost in New York explores many of the issues facing wildlife in our modern world.

Haibu is a smart, compassionate, and determined 10-year-old girl who is from a tiny village in Iceland. She arrives in a completely new land she’s never seen before ― New York City. As she discovers the city, she learns about a nearby circus that might have clues that would help her find her way back home. But the circus animals are in serious trouble and need help right away. Haibu and her new friends put their heads together to come up with a plan in order to save the animals before things get worse.

A partner of WildAid, an environmental organization dedicated to protecting wildlife, Haibu teaches children animal conservation and raises awareness about the situations and conditions animals live in today.
