- Written in Louisiana by Claire Boudreaux Bateman
- One of seven children, Claire Boudreaux Bateman was born in Lake Charles, Louisiana. She earned her Bachelor of Arts from the University of Louisiana-Lafayette and her Master of Arts from the University of New Orleans. Currently, she lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, with her husband, David, and their two children.
Based on true stories of heroism and service in the aftermath of hurricanes Katrina and Rita, Call Me Hero is sold as a gift set with a plush toy.
Told through the compelling, endearing voice of the mischievous mutt Hero in the catastrophic days before, during and after Hurricane Katrina, Call Me Hero follows his journey as he is rescued from the flood waters and given a new life. Hero has lost his home, his family and, worst of all, his name. Yet, as he searches for his owner, he discovers the true meaning of hero and learns through touching adventures how it is much more than just a name.
The story takes the reader from the drowned city of New Orleans, the rescue shelters in Baton Rouge, to the devastation in Cameron Parish on the western coast of Louisiana, and touches on the rescue efforts along the Mississippi and Texas Coasts and, ultimately, encourages readers to discover the hero in themselves.
