Award-winning children's author Elizabeth Davidson will sign copies of her book, "Cheery: The True Adventures of a Chiricahua Leopard Frog," from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 28 at The Book Rack, 1752 S. Signal Butte Road, Mesa.

Her book follows one frog's story from the time that he is just an egg in a pond, to when he swims away as a tadpole and grows into an adult frog. The story presents issues of invasive non-native species and the important of preserving natural habitats through easily understood terms and colorful illustrations.

While written for children, Davidson's book tells the story of one of Arizona's most unique endangered species. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Arizona Game and Fish Department provided funding for the project.
