East Brunswick Family Writes Children’s Book, Donates Proceeds To Hope For Haiti

EAST BRUNSWICK — Family physician and first grade student Renata and Isabella Dussias came together to create Narcheezus, a narcissistic mouse who is the star of a new children’s book.

In the story, a girl named Isabella discovers a hidden community in a tuft of grass in her backyard. There, lies a village of small animals and fairies, including Narcheezus the narcissistic mouse, Evona the ballerina fairy, Bonnie Bunowski, Percy Catepillarman, and Thaddeus Turtleopolous. Narcheezus disappoints his friends by never listening to their opinions, putting himself before others, and not attending scheduled events to support his friends.


One day, he realizes that the world does not revolve around himself, but that the community he lives in is part of the whole wide world. From that point on, he volunteers his time to help others, donates to charity, and supports and values his friends. In the end, “Narcheezus… made a better world for a better mouse.”

During the writing for this book, the Haitian earthquake struck and devastated Port-au-Prince. Renata and Isabella decided that half of the proceeds from the book would go to the charity Hope for Haiti. This is an organization that promises to improve the quality of life for the Haitian population, particularly children, through education, nutrition and health care.

Narcheezus can be purchased from amazon.com, ultramediapublications.com and etsy.com.
