Samantha Childs wanted to write children's books ever since she was a child. Following a BA in Literature from Claremont McKenna College, a year studying Shakespeare at Oxford University, and an MFA in Nonfiction from Columbia University, a little French bulldog named Henri came into her life and gave breath to her first children's book. Henri and the Magnificent Snort tells the story of Henri Le Frenchie, Samantha's dog and Instagram celebrity @henrilefrenchie, as he overcomes bullying and discovers how lovable he truly is. The story is inspired by Samantha's experiences being bullied in middle school, and by the hope that its messages of celebrating differences, belonging, love, and self-love will help others to see their own magnificence.
