Crescent Renewal Books is an imprint of Who Chains You Publishing.

Crescent Renewal Books presents educational and uplifting stories that—while not focusing on animals—abide by the "Do No Harm" principle as it applies to our animal friends.

We formed the Crescent Renewal imprint in fall 2017 as a result of requests by our authors to publish titles they'd written that were not animal-related. While our focus will remain on Who Chains You Books and our advocacy for animals, we will review manuscripts that abide by the "Do No Harm" principle for our animal friends, too.

Crescent Renewal Books will publish books in all genres from children to adult and fiction to nonfiction that we find educational and uplifting, as long as our animal friends are respected throughout whenever they appear.

Do you represent a nonprofit? If you'd like to order our books in bulk to sell to benefit your organization, please visit our Nonprofit Order Page or email us at for special wholesale pricing.

If you're interesting in submitting a book for publishing consideration, visit our submissions page. In addition, we're printing a whole series of fun and/or educational books featuring YOUR STORIES, too!

Kylee Rain loves cupcakes with sparkly sprinkles, anything pink, Paris, France, and her Papa—her favoritest person in the whole wide world.

Her Nana and Papa live with them in a big old house on a farm in the country, where she gets to cuddle with her grey kitty Purrlock Holmes and explore their HUGE vegetable garden with its extra large pumpkin patch.

Ever since she was little, Kylee’s helped Papa take care of the pumpkins. Sometimes he tells her, with a wink and a grin, “Why when you were just a teeny weeny baby, you showed up one day in that pumpkin patch, and you were so stinkin’ cute we decided to keep you! That’s why to me you’ll always be ‘Papa’s Little Pumpkin.’”

Kylee and her Papa prove that the bond between a grandparent and a grandchild can indeed be something special. From motorcycles to airplanes and everything in between, join Papa and Kylee in this heartwarming tale as they make lifetime memories while waiting for their pumpkins to grow into the prettiest, plumpest pumpkins in the patch.

Perfect for ages 4 and up—and all the young-at-heart grandparents too—this book from Crescent Renewal is sure to find a spot on your family’s bookshelf.
