Rancho Santa Fe Library welcomes ‘Danny Dog’ author


The Rancho Santa Fe Library hosted a special storytime with local author Sid Shapira Nov. 4, following the library’s Love on a Leash program where children practice reading to dogs. Shapira did a reading of his new book “Danny Dog,” which tells the story of a little dog found on the street and the rescue organization that helped him find his happy ending and a home sweet home.

Shapira’s book was inspired by the story of family’s new rescue dog Danny, a Shih Tzu.

The book is available online on A portion of the profits will be donated to animal and human welfare organizations. Visit for more details. Photos by Jon Clark.
