DAVENPORT, Iowa – This week, Davenport author Sharon R. Holub is releasing her second children's book, "Callie Cakes Finds Her Treasures," written for her granddaughters, Callie and Priya.

In the story, when Callie Cakes moves into a new house all of her treasures—her tea set, her books, her sailboat, but most importantly her bear—are missing. Callie's mom suggests that she try to make some new friends so she won't miss her treasures so much.

As Callie tries to make new friends, she misses her treasures more and more until two boys from down the street befriend her. Callie learns that these new friends are the treasures she's been looking for all along in this engaging story.

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com. This is also an eLIVE title, meaning each book contains a code redeemable for a free audio book version from TatePublishing.com.

Holub presently resides in Davenport, Iowa. She is also the author of "Adventures of the Big Green Van." For more information, visit sharonholub.tateauthor.com.
