Summary

An unexplained dead body on pack land with no immediate apparent cause of death? Oh yeah, that's not good. Even worse, Harrison's twin brother stumbles on it while on morning patrol of pack land perimeter. Leo is slated to become pack Alpha when their father retires or dies whichever comes first. Patrolling like a commoner or finding an unidentified dead body does not make him happy. Harrison, on the other hand, thinks in more rational, logical terms. After directing his brother to wrap up the body and transport it to a remote cabin near the border of their land, thereby out of reach and prying eyes, he calmly goes about finding someone whose specialty is identifying dead bodies. Once identified and a cause of death determined, he'll contact the local Sheriff to come take possession of it. Problem solved. 
S.M. Tucker responds to his email. No-nonsense Samantha Tucker loves facts almost as much as she loves deciphering unexplained dead bodies, with flesh or reduced to skeletal remains, and is nothing like what Harrison Ripley pictured.  Moments after first meeting, , his inner puma scratches, claws, and growls to get out, hungry to mate with the curvy, bubbly, yet highly cerebral human female. Only Harrison can't get beyond the fact the female has three degrees - in forensic pathology, forensic toxicology, & forensic anthropology. His manly ego can't handle it, nor can it accept the fact Fate thought this was the perfect mate for him. Yes, he loved numbers. Heck, he had an incomparable knack and memory for them. But he'd always thought his forever mate would be a placid, easy-going shifter female, not some over-educated human who got a thrill from investigating dead bodies. This female aroused an uncomfortable feeling of being insufficient and he didn't like it one bit. Yet, her mere presence turned him on like never before. Can he push aside feeling inadequate and try to win over the fiercely independent female? Can Sam be convinced to reshuffle a packed life of teaching and working cases to make room for love and a mate? Priorities need to be rearranged if this is to work. Will both of them make the effort or risk losing the love of a lifetime?

    In his illustrious career as a cartoonist for the New Yorker and other publications, Joseph Farris has created dozens of hilarious cartoons about “the best game in the world at which to be bad.”A.A. Milne had it right, and Farris’s cartoons get to the heart of the game’s wonderful contradiction: over the course of eighteen holes, golf has the capacity to bring great joy and drive you crazy.Farris treats us to the sight of a blissfully happily newlywed with “Just Married” emblazoned on the back of his golf cart; of an archaeologist who discovers a hieroglyph featuring an annoyed-looking pharaoh breaking a golf club over his knee; and a TV-watching husband who rebuffs his naked wife’s amorous advances in no uncertain terms: “Not now, I’m watching Tiger Woods.”It’s been said that real golfers don’t cry.  That may or may not be true.   Joseph Farris’s cartoons are sure to make any golfer laugh.

    In Dating Disasters 101, this e-book original gathers strips from the popular cartoon strip, Luann. Still pining for Aaron Hill, Luann accidentally agrees to a date with the reclusive, slightly socially inept Gunther. Through his non-violent resolution with two bullies at a miniature golf course, Gunther endears himself to Luann, who ends the date with a peck on Gunther’s cheek. But Luann isn’t the only one thrown into romantic mishap; her brother Brad proves opposites attract when he begins dating the cultured and intelligent Diane. Double dates and uncomfortable father-son talks ensue as the siblings grapple with their new, confusing romantic relationships.Featuring funny and revealing behind-the-scenes commentary by creator, Greg Evans.Readers of all ages love Luann, a strip about the trials of  becoming a  young adult. Known for its rich characters and intriguing  “what will  happen next” storylines, Luann enjoys a reader  loyalty rare on the comic  page, consistently ranking among the top five  in reader surveys. Greg  Evans was voted Outstanding Cartoonist of the  Year in 2003 by the  National Cartoonists Society, partly for his  efforts in holding up Luann  as a fine example of the positive  power comic strips can have. “My aim  is to touch readers’ hearts as  well as their funny bones,” says Evans,  who’s humorously touched on  serious issues such as peer pressure, drugs,  alcohol and young love.  “Adolescence is a very funny time—except  when you’re in it.”

The book showcases the creative development through the years with gorgeous, never-before-seen concept art, and weaves a rich history based on dozens of interviews with former Peanuts directors, animators, voice talent, and layout artists, as well as current industry folk. Filling a void in animation publishing—there is no other history or art book of the Peanuts specials—this volume celebrates five decades of the artistry and humor of Charles M. Schultz and the artists who reimagined the comic for the screen.
