STURGIS — Local author Codi Vallery-Mills, of Sturgis, has just released the third book in her Husker the Mule children’s series. The latest book, “Husker the Mule: Adventure Awaits,” takes young readers on a back-country camping trip with Husker, his young owner, Carter and a new character to the series, a young cowgirl named Caty Lou. 

“Kids will enjoy this book because of its fun setting, characters, and pictures while parents will appreciate that it has a message about self-confidence and being open to adventures for their little one,” Mills said.

Once again illustrated by the award-winning western artist Teri McTighe, of Faith, the book is brought to life for readers. 

“Teri always does a wonderful job of creating artwork that enhances the storyline beautifully,” Mills said.

“Husker the Mule: Adventure Awaits,” along with the first two books, and available at Sturgis Photo & Gifts in downtown Sturgis, the Cenex Travel Plaza or Olive Branch store in Belle Fourche, and on Amazon.com
