The SEA-quel "Indy, Oh Indy: Pismo or Bust!"

The tale about this "tail"

The "Indy, Oh Indy" series is a joint effort by two Bakersfield residents, author Teresa Adamo and illustrator Jennifer Williams-Cordova. The pair work and play together, sharing a mutual love of dogs, Bakersfield and children's books - well, books in general. So why not combine all these favorites into a perfect pet project?


The first book: Indy, Oh Indy: Wanderin' the Streets of Bakersfield portrays the fictional adventures of a real-life terridoodle named Indy as she wanders the streets of Bakersfield in search of her forever family. Children and adults alike will enjoy seeing various well-known local icons and other hidden nods to this beloved community. The Adamo family adopted Indy from the Kern County Animal Shelter in 2008. In fact, sales of the book allow us to benefit the shelter as well as the Bakersfield SPCA. 

Now, with a second book - affectionately known as the SEA-quel because Indy heads to the Central Coast - it's time to take our canine star on another road trip! This one is filled with fun and friends on an adventure to the beach. It's called: Indy, Oh Indy: Pismo or Bust! It's a delightful summertime read -- because we all love going to the coast with friends and family this time of year!
