Children's book highlights scenic Maine spots

'Mish and Friends' Maine Adventure' takes readers from Fort Kent to Kennebunkport through its illustrations.

PORTLAND, Maine — Sometimes it takes years to chase a dream. Sometimes it takes decades. That's the case for writer, Cheryl Johnson, now selling her children's book "Mish and Friends' Maine Adventure." It's a story she wrote when she was 20-years-old.

Johnson also does her own illustrations, showcasing some of Maine's most beautiful spots, and encouraging young readers to explore. 

Each image in the story takes readers on a journey, from Fort Kent to Freeport, and many stops in between, offering up a lesson about each scenic spot. 

We spoke with Cheryl Johnson about her own unorthodox journey to finding her passion, and about what readers will learn from her story. Click on the interview to learn more.
