Rebecca Thieme-Baeseman, a 2005 graduate of St. Norbert College, has recently authored a new children's book, "Miller: The Mostly Misunderstood Mischief-Maker Who Went Missing." (2012-Orange Hat Publishers)

The book tells the story of a mischievous kitty, Miller, who simply feels misunderstood as he finds himself in trouble rather often. For more on the book, go to http://www.orangehatpublishing.com/books-2.

Thieme-Baeseman, a native of Beaver Dam, Wis., teaches at Valley View Elementary School in the Ashwaubenon school district. She recalls an assignment in one of her education classes at St. Norbert that required her to write a children's book. "Since then, I always had the desire to write one," said Thieme-Baeseman. "My education courses in college also gave me great exposure to children's literature. We often had to find piles of titles and keep track of what books could be used for teaching what subject. This really gave me a strong passion for reading and now writing children's books."

"Miller: The Mostly Misunderstood Mischief-Maker Who Went Missing" is available through amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com. It can also be purchased directly from Thieme-Baeseman at rebeccamtb83@gmail.com or 608-338-8307.
