Paperback

Book Description
Bad habits, bad attitudes, bad breath. With a weakness for bad outfits and having bad hair days. Dogs are no less bad than cats, so it was only a matter of time before, emboldened by the runaway success of Bad Cat, the #1 New York Times bestseller with 487,000 copies in print, dogs would be begging for the chance to speak out. Dogs like:

Trixie, the puppy eating her own foot, who says: “If you’re wondering, it tastes like chicken.” Or the aging Sam, eyes popping out of his head and granny glasses askew: “Sweet mother of mercy—the Viagra’s working!” Or Tasia, a big mutt forced to wear little Santa hats, who snarls: “ I’d like to roast your chestnuts on an open fire.” There’s Dallas the surly yoga instructor. The old letch Samson, half-mastiff...

How to Live with a Neurotic Dog

Book Description
NOW, AT LAST, YOU UNDERSTAND YOUR DOG
You think your life is crazy. Try looking at the world through your dog's big melting brown eyes. If your dog is neurotic (and what dog isn't these days?), consider these helpful pointers:
• Don't interrupt your dog's naps—remember, he needs your bed far more than you do.
• Don't force your dog to play fetch just because you feel like it—keep in mind his busy schedule too.
• Never bark orders at your dog. "Please" and "thank you" work wonders with the neurotic dog.
• Give your dog a canine personality quiz—it's the first step before starting him on full-fledged psychoanalysis.
• If all else fails, feed him!

From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 2-From a neighborly distance, Zeke seems to be a "dream dog." So, when Mrs. Teaberry, his owner, hurts her foot, her friend Mr. Putter does not hesitate to volunteer to walk him. At the end of a leash, however, the little bulldog is a "nightmare." He tugs, tangles, and chases "big dogs." Mr. Putter, always accompanied by his cat, resorts to bribes of just the sort (ice cream, swimming pools, carnivals, and zoos) that tempt children to good behavior. Mr. Putter at last returns Zeke, and he and Tabby celebrate. This beginning-reader chapter book has a brief text (with a few words readers might have to stretch for), plenty of repetitive phrases, and lots of visual clues. Howard's illustrations are breezy, watercolor-and-pencil cartoons that extend the humor and give comic life to the...

Book Description
Animal lovers everywhere adore Patrick McDonnell's charming but pointed Mutts. The strip strikes a delicate balance between lighthearted fun and social commentary-on the human condition as well as the animal world.

Infodad.com describes Mutts as "humane and funny and gentle and caring and heartfelt and-did we mention funny?"

The Cat in the Hat Comes Back (A Beginner Book Series)

Book Review
That behatted and bow-tied cat from Dr. Seuss's The Cat in the Hat is back, and, not surprisingly, is up to all sorts of mischief. This time, Sally and her brother are stuck shoveling snow: "This was no time for play./ This was no time for fun./ This was no time for games./ There was work to be done." But--you guessed it--the laughing Hat Cat has other ideas, as he lets himself in to eat cake in their tub. He leaves behind "a big long pink cat ring," which he then handily cleans with "MOTHER'S WHITE DRESS!" The dress then loses its pink stain to the wall, then Dad's shoes, then the rug in the hall, until finally the Cat must call in some assistance: from inside his hat comes Little Cat A, then Littler Cats B, C, D, E, and so on, nested like dolls in ever tinier hats. With this pack of felines, Sally and her brother may get...

From Publishers Weekly
This palm-sized gift book by the author of The Dog Is Not a Toy and Groovitude presents an amusing look at the life of Bucky, a gregarious house cat and star of the syndicated comic strip "Get Fuzzy." Each spread matches a cartoon panel with a pithy aphorism regarding the flaws and foibles of the domestic feline and his relations with owner, Rob Wilco, and cohabitating dog, Satchel. "Cats are paranoid," Conley writes, and presents Bucky opining about Satchel's murderous intentions, much to the gentle mutt's chagrin. "Cats have bad breath," he reports, next to a picture of Rob roused by the stink of Bucky's tuna fish breath. "Cats have overinflated egos," Conley notes, and shows Bucky clawing the air saying, "Ha! Ya! Fa-tang! Fa-tang! Ole! This movie rocks! I would make such an awesome gladiator! All I need is a...

Mr. Putter & Tabby Take the Train

From School Library Journal
Grade 1-3-Mr. Putter and his cat, Tabby, are friends and neighbors of Mrs. Teaberry and her bulldog, Zeke. When Mrs. T suggests taking a train ride, they load up games, binoculars, doggy lollipops, and a blanket for naps, only to discover that pets are not allowed. Undaunted, Mr. Putter and Mrs. Teaberry go home and return to the train station, having hidden Tabby and Zeke in a picnic basket and knapsack. They sneak the animals onboard and enjoy a wonderful trip. The charm and whimsy of this story are marred only by the devious behavior of the adult characters, which sends the message that it is acceptable to disregard rules that are not to one's liking. If the friends did not want to leave their creatures at home, they could have found another activity. That said, the narrative is endearing for its humor...
