11-year-old writes book based on story of pet guinea pig
Posted August 12, 2015
An 11-year-old girl with ties to the Triangle is sharing her love of pets and raising money for a local animal rescue.
With her grandmother Rita Bahn of Cary, Lili Shirin Bhan wrote a children’s book based on a true story of her adoption of her pet guinea pig, Chippy.
It’s a story about finding friendship and love while overcoming obstacles.
This past weekend, Lili held a reading of “Chippy’s Dreams” and signed copies of her book at Carolina Preserve. More than 100 children and adults attended.
Between book sales and donations, the event raised more than $1,000 for the Carolina Tiger Rescue Center in Pittsboro.
