1. The Nearly Calamitous Taming of PZ: A laboratory dog’s search for love

Release date: Feb 21, 2015
Number of Pages: 236

Read Review
A charming, classic adventure tale about the scary, crazy, and heart-thumpingly joyful plunge into connecting with others

A foxhound has spent her life behind bars, known only by the PZ-5934 tatoo in her ear. In this story inspired by the life of a real lab dog, PZ knows nothing but a laboratory cage. She has never even seen the sun. But a superpowered diva ladybug named Dottie changes all that.

The unlikely pair undertake a hilarious and adventurous road trip through civilization and finally find a home with Olivia, a restless, solitary girl, who has secrets of her own. Unexpected adventures await the dog, the girl, and the ladybug, as a shocking, hidden part of their town reveals itself and everyone must sort out when to trust and when to battle.

The Nearly Calamitous Taming of PZ–lyrical and approachable, with resonant details–has both humor and heart. Although intended for children eight through twelve, its classic unfolding and off-beat characters tickle the fancy of adults as well. It is both an adventure story and a tale with many layers–about overcoming obstacles, mining experience for what matters, and doing what is necessary, though not always desirable, for friendship. Ultimately, it is about the joy of a hard-won connection.

The classic illustrations–with a contemporary edge–reflect this fresh, poignant, wise, and sometimes downright wacky book.

“Not since Kafka has an insect risen to this level of artistic genius.”–Dottie

2. Wolf Story (New York Review Collections (Hardcover))

by: William McCleeryWarren Chappell
Release date: Sep 11, 2012
Number of Pages: 88
Find in Library
Read Review
This irresistible book is about: a father; his five-year-old son, Michael (intelligent, crafty, addicted to stories); Michael’s best friend Stefan (stalwart listener, equally addicted to stories); and, well—what else?—a story. 

Oh, and a wolf. It is as Michael always demands: a Wolf Story, which begins one night at bedtime and spins wildly on through subsequent bedtimes and Sunday outings to the beach and park in a succession of ever more trickily tantalizing episodes. Waldo the wolf is sneaking up on Rainbow the hen, when Jimmy Tractorwheel, the son of the local farmer, comes along. After that, there’s no knowing what will happen next, as while stalled in traffic jams or nodding off at night, the boys chime in and the story races on and Waldo finds, if not necessarily dinner, his just desserts.

First published in 1947 and wonderfully illustrated by Warren Chappell, William McCleery’s Wolf Story is a delicious treat for fathers and sons and daughters and mothers alike.

“I’ve always been different because I don’t have a tail.

But that’s okay. I don’t swim like a whale.

Except for the tail, I was like other dogs.

I could run and play and jump over logs.

Then everything changed the day I got hurt.

I had to get wheels because my back legs didn’t work.”

Based on a true story, this heartwarming tale comes “straight from the dog’s mouth.” Rugby is a lovable, loving and kind rascal who understands kids and life. His story will captivate children of all ages as well as the adults who read to them. Rugby’s personality has a magnetism that connects with children in a very special way. Written in his endearing eight year old voice, Rugby offers a convincing message to everyone who reads about him or listens to his story. He offers understanding and encouragement to those who must deal with and overcome any difference or adversity. Rugby teaches the all-important lesson that kindness and acceptance shown by children and adults alike will make the world a better place for all.

Filled with colorful and meaningful images that children will relate to and understand, The Diary of a Different Dog is a rhyming picture book meant for younger children.

Rugby has become a hero for the many children who read or had read to them The “Tail” of Rugby Jones – A Rascal’s Journey from Disability to Ability. Now Rugby hopes to become a hero for your younger child too. This is the first book in his new series: Life with Rugby Jones

*****In a thoughtful and creative follow-up to her earlier book The “Tail” of Rugby Jones, author Claudia Broome has developed this timely book that combines the essentials of the anti-bullying message along with the message of inclusion. The Diary of a Different Dog: Rugby Jones cleverly utilizes a real-life handicapped dog, which is humanized into the book’s narrator. Rugby Jones describes his adversity from an accident, how he overcame it to thrive, and how others can learn to thrive in a diverse environment that includes multicultural and multi-racial issues. This book’s imaging is superb, which is an essential feature for very young readers. Claudia Broome has created another quality book that every kindergarten and elementary school guidance counselor and child therapist should have as a resource.
Dr. Philip J. Shapiro Ormond Beach, Florida

*****Once again Claudia Broome uses her pal Rugby Jones, a Pembroke Welsh Corgi, to enchant children with a story that celebrates the broad range of physical, cultural, and personal differences among people living in any community, and the everyday heroism of children who make the choice to be kind and empathic toward those who are often marginalized because of their disabilities or other differences. Beautifully illustrated using bold graphics and vibrant colors, The Diary of a Different Dog belongs on the shelves of schools, libraries, and homes nation-wide.
