Platt teacher and student team up to produce fictional e-book

Platt Technical High School Teacher Michael Zilinek and Platt high school graduate Deni Nakonecni teamed up to produce a new children’s fictional e-book entitled, Harold the Fire Breathing Mouse.

Zilinek, a CADD teacher at Platt Technical High School, authored the book. “This is a fun book for kids from ages 6-10 about a simple country mouse that comes across a falling star and goes on an unexpected adventure to save his family,” Zilinek said.

Deni, who created the illustrations for the e-book, is a 2013 Informational System Technology graduate of Platt Tech High School and plans on pursuing his field further in college.

He created the illustrations based on his interpretation of the reading about the main character’s adventure. “Deni did an extraordinary job with illustrations.

The pictures just pop off the pages,” Zilinek said. Harold the Fire Breathing Mouse is now available for download on Kindle, Nook and Iphone through
