This endearing and beautiful book published by Stewart, Tabori & Chang is choc-a-block full of cute, cuddly canine photographs. You will fall in love with Moe, the Yorkipoo with the little speckled muzzle, Tater Tot, the disproportionately large pawed Great Dane, as well as Chad, Roland, and ... well... every little guy in the whole book. Next stop? The Humane Society. So maybe you can’t get a new puppy at the moment, but there’s a chance you still may end up coming home with sixty furry new friends. Luckily, these little monsters are remarkably apartment friendly in non-fiction format.

In order to satiate your puppy love until then, check out this book trailer that is sure to give you the warm and fuzzies: http://youtu.be/eQ4zui-BPJw.

Hopefully Abby, our resident Manda pooch, doesn’t get jealous!

ME...JANE

 

"This remarkable picture book is one of the few that speaks, in a meaningful way, to all ages."       (Booklist, starred review )

"McDonnell's skill as a cartoonist enables him to express Goodall's joy, wonder and satisfaction with a simple stroke of the pen."     (New York Times )

A big congratulations to author Patrick McDonnell and his publisher Little Brown & Company Books for Young Readers, whose delightful tale Me... Jane has been awarded a Coldecott Honor (given to the artist of the most distinguished American picture books), and has also been chosen as Booklist Magazine’s TOP OF THE LIST, for the single best  book of the year in picture books! This gorgeous picture book tells the story of Jane Goodall and the special relationship she forms as a small child with a stuffed chimpanzee named Jubilee.  As the young Jane observes the natural world around her with wonder, she dreams of "a life living with and helping all animals," until one day she finds that her dream has come true!

Me… Jane by Patrick McDonnell (Little Brown & Co.), ISBN: 9780316045469, Retail Price: $17.99 CAN, Hardcover

Summer Hangover

Last summer, the Hungover Owls Tumblr took the internet by storm.  Hilarious, crude, and sometimes not-safe-for-work captions, combined with photos of owls squinting, gawking, snuggling, and sleeping make for the perfect storm of LOL-humor. With over 80 percent never-before -published content, this new book is an ideal gift for Back to School. A word to the wise, perhaps?
