★★★★★Recommend picture book. My three year old was attentive to this alternate retelling of the classic Prince and the Pauper story. It is a pleasant story that examines curiosity in a positive way. Gratitude is also expressed in this picture book. Easy rhyme text and sweet illustrations have made it an often requested read.

A Connect-the-Dots Activity Book

paperback, 48 pages.

Review: This is an activity book/ coffee table book. Creative on the part of the author but it doesn’t leave much for the participant since it’s just simply connecting a few dots. Cat photos are full color and the pages are perforated. It is a unique paperback for artsy type people and/or cat lovers. Would be a good gift giving idea. Overall: like not love.

A cat who thinks he’s a duck?  He must be Quackers!!

This quirky funny book is about standing out, fitting in, and building a life with room for all.

Quackers is a duck. Sure, he may have paws and whiskers. And his quacks might sound more like…well, meows, but he lives among ducks, everyone he knows is a duck, and he’s happy.
Then Quackers meets another duck who looks like him (& talks like him, too!)—but he calls himself a cat. So silly!

Quackers loves being among his new friends the cats, but he also misses his duck friends, and so he finds a way to combine the best of both worlds. Part cat, part duck, all Quackers!

Hardcover book. pages- 40. Ages 3-7

This is cute story that teaches on friendship and acceptance. The characters in this story (ducks & cats) are nice (no conflict). And the illustrations (soft colored pencil look) work with the story. Quackers is Liz Wong’s debut children’s book. Text didn’t hold the attention of my 2 year old reviewer. It’s a good story but confusing for a little one (a cat that is called a duck). Better suited for older children.

“A bean bag is a perfect place to sulk. You can sink way down deep, and sulk for hours… You only have to stick your head up once in a while… to see if anybody cares.”

― Charles M. Schulz, The Complete Peanuts, Vol. 15: 1979-1980

SleekEZ

SleekEZ was formed by long-time, advanced equine dentist Jennifer Tipton.  Jennifer travels throughout the United States making horses happy, and always enjoys a pretty horse! She is a horse, kitty and dog owner, and lives in Montana where the winters are long and springs are, well, hairy. But, no matter what part of the world you are in, animals shed hair, dirt and dander year round. SleekEZ is one of the best shedding tools on the market and claimed to be better than the Furminator at half the cost!

The SleekEZ is available in three sizes: 10″, 5″, and 2½” for horses, dogs, and cats. They can be purchased separately or together in a combo pack. I tried all three sizes on both horse and cat with great results. I mean super terrific results!

It is lightweight and easy to use. The blade is exclusive to SleekEZ; the tiny teeth does a great job on removing the loose hair. It is made in the USA from “poplar wood waterproofed with a ‘green’ water-based lacquer”.

SATISFACTION GUARANTEED OR DOUBLE YOUR MONEY BACK!!*

The SleekEZ is tops for shedding hair. It’s been fun sharing this locally with my horse friends. Everyone is so impressed.
