The "Keyboard Kitten" came to life for author Bob Welch early one morning last year with unexpected help of his own cat.

"One morning he literally walked across the keyboard, and he started typing letters and numbers and asterisks and such," Welch recalled, "and I said to myself: children's book."

Welch teamed up with his good friend and illustrator Tom Penix, and Comma the kitten's adventures in Oregon began.

One book just wasn't enough.

Comma is back in the sequel, "The Keyboard Kitten Gets Oregonized".

Derek Zinser and his collection of colorful and zany mascots are still on the hunt for a world record after coming up short of the goal earlier this month at the Portland Rose Festival.

“It was a lot of fun to have the mascots there,” Zinser said. “Kids were running up and giving them hugs and the parents were smiling because their kids were having fun. It was a good experience.”

The current record is 366 mascots, set in Tokyo, Japan.

Zinser really wants to bring that record back to the United States, but he only had 105 mascots join him at the Rose Festival.

Healthy Moves supporters knocked that goal out of the park, quadrupling the target mileage.
