Summary

People often chose a dog that resembles themselves, consciously or unconsciously.  Even scientific experiments have proved it. For example, you rarely find a Hell's Angel with a bichon frisé, or a sweet little old lady with a bulldog. A gentle quiet academic wouldn't normally chose a boisterous border collie, nor would an energetic teenager chose a basset hound.

Our beloved dogs are rather like our choice of car or the clothes we wear. The science writer David Robson says, 'The canine mini-me reveals a narcissistic tendency in us all.'

In these humorous, colourful illustrations of doppelgänger dogs, artist John Holder has depicted a superb, visually entertaining collection of dogs and their owners in all their lookalike glory. A treat for dog owners everywhere.

    I like to think of the Archaeologist from a more advanced society who would dig up this album hundreds of years from now, listen to it, and wonder why we needed a comedian like Barry Crimmins in the early days of the millennium. What would be the purpose of a person standing on a stage getting big laughs stating obvious facts that were already accepted by even the youngest of children in his modern society? The only society that doesn’t need a Barry Crimmins would already have hundreds of millions of Barry Crimmins.

    In the second Lady Travelers Society romantic misadventure, “Victoria Alexander delivers on all counts . . . Inventive, imaginative, and intriguing” (Stephanie Laurens, #1 New York Times–bestselling author).  She must secure her future   A lady should never be obliged to think of matters financial! But when Lady Wilhelmina Bascombe’s carefree, extravagant lifestyle vanishes with the demise of her husband, her only hope lies in retrieving a family treasure—a Renaissance masterpiece currently in the hands of a cunning art collector in Venice. Thankfully, the Lady Travelers Society has orchestrated a clever plan to get Willie to Europe, leading a tour of mothers and daughters . . . and one curiously attentive man.  He must reclaim his heritage   Dante Augustus Montague’s one passion has long been his family’s art collection. He’s finally tracked a long-lost painting to the enchanting Lady Bascombe. Convinced that the canvas had been stolen, he will use any means to reclaim his birthright—including deception. But how long before pretend infatuation gives way to genuine desire?  Now they’re rivals for a prize that will change everything   Willie and Dante know they’re playing with fire in the magical moonlit city. Their common quest could compromise them both . . . or lead them to happily-ever-after.  “Alexander’s adventurous, sensible, and self-assured older women, her energetic exploration of the turn-of-the-19th-century European setting, and her madcap social plotting continue to delight in the second installment of the Lady Travelers series.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)  “Smart, witty, and sensual, the second in Alexander’s lively Lady Travelers Society series is delightful.” —RT Book Reviews (4 1/2 stars, Top Pick!)

    K is for Knifeball - An Alphabet...

    An adult parody of children’s alphabet books, offering horrible—but hilarious—advice, from the authors of All my friends are dead. In the humorous vein of Go the F**k to Sleep comes a laugh-out-loud collection of bad advice that turns the children’s alphabet book on its head. Adorable, illustrated characters lead readers down a path of poor decision-making, and alphabetical, rhyming couplets offer terrible life lessons. O is for opening things with your teeth, F is for setting Daddy’s wallet on fire, and R is for Raccoon (but definitely not for rabies). With plenty of playfully disastrous choices lurking around every corner, this compendium of black humor may be terrible for actual children, but it’s perfect for the common-senseless child in all adults. Plus, this is the fixed-format version, which looks nearly identical to the physical book.Praise for K is for Knifeball “Great fun for adults. The humorous illustrations, done in the style common in kids books, greatly add to the fun.” —Geek Alerts

    Darrin Bell's Candorville is an insightful comic strip for today's world. Brutally honest but still evenhanded, Candorville takes on some of society's toughest issues, giving readers something to think about--as well as smirks, chuckles, and guffaws. Another Stereotype Bites the Dust is a collection of creator Darrin Bell's Candorville cartoon strip. In this thought-provoking strip Bell uses a diverse group of friends to paint a real yet humorous portrait of inner-city America. An educated underachiever, Lemont Brown is an aspiring writer. Socially conscious, he wants to work at changing the world and infusing it with wisdom and justice--if only he could pay his rent. Lemont's childhood friend Susan Garcia is a book-smart and street savvy Mexican-American woman who won't let bigotry or any glass ceiling keep her down. And Lemont's friend Clyde (aka C-Dog) is a streetwise thug and undiscovered rapper who'd rather mooch off his mother than get a job.Another Stereotype Bites the Dust deals with some tough issues--poverty, homelessness, racism, and personal responsibility--with knowing irony and incisive satire. Bell uses edgy dialogue and modern situations to jab everything from political correctness to political spinning, from political hindsight to office politics, making it a hit with the socially aware.
