COVID shutdown leads West alumna to publish children's book

West Seneca alumna Kristin Krajewski published her first children’s book, “Mimi the Uni-Raffe,” after following inspiration from her three young children.

“During the first COVID-19 school shutdown in the spring I started writing stories for my children, initially as reading comprehension work for them. My children fell in love with them and inspired me to actually publish and share them with other children,” she said.

Mimi was born a unicorn – or so she thought – but her outward appearance left her wanting acceptance and friendship, leading her on a courageous journey.

Together with illustrator Michelle Jefferson, Krajewski brings the adventures of Mimi to life.

"Mimi the Uni-Raffe" is available for purchase on Amazon and is geared toward children age five to 10 years old, although Krajewski said the tale has good lessons for all ages.

Krajewski is a graduate of West Senior high school Class of 1999. She currently lives in Williamsville.
