  • Suffolk trio collaborates on book

    Jimmy LaRoue, The Suffolk News-Herald
    The game Alexis Devers made up when she was just five years old became the source of her idea for a children’s book. She and her grandmother played the game, which Alexis, now 11, called “Cute Animals.” This December, nearly six years after that initial idea, “The Adventures of Ruff and Meowco” was published.

The two spent nearly a half-hour playing the game, and by the end of it, Holland thought they had enough to write a book.
