"Sit...Stay...Enjoy! Good reader!" -Stephen Colbert The hilarious, heartwarming, and rebarkable true story of Guy the Beagle, Duchess Meghan Markle's rescue dog. Like all good stories, Guy the Beagle's begins lost in the woods of Kentucky. But his fortunes change when he's rescued by none other than Princess...er, Duchess-to-be Meghan Markle. Practically overnight, Guy goes from wags to riches. But does this backwoods beagle have what it takes to be welcomed into the royal family? For the first time ever, Guy reveals how he went from pawper to proper, with help from Emmy award-winning writer and producer of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Mike Brumm and publishing veteran (and devoted Anglophile) Camille March, beautifully illustrated by EG Keller (illustrator of the New York Times bestselling A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo). Guy's story of finding acceptance in an exceptional family will have readers of all ages barking with laughter.
The earliest evidence of a human and a pet can be traced as far back as 26,000 BC in France where a boy and his 'canid' took a walk through a cave. Their foot and paw prints were preserved together on the muddy cave floor, and smoke from the torch the boy carried was left on the walls, allowing archaeologists to carbon-date their journey. And so, the story unfolds, from these prehistoric days all the way up to the present, of our innate and undeniable need to live in the close company of animals. In this startling new work, acclaimed cultural detective and lifelong pet owner Jacky Colliss Harvey uses her compelling storytelling skills and keen eye for historical investigation to examine our role as animals' companions, in this exploration of the history not of the pet, but of us as pet owners. Drawing on literary, artistic and archaeological evidence of our relationships with other species, over thousands of years of human experience, she examines the when, the how and the why of our connection to those animals we take into our lives, assessing these against the latest scientific thinking on this complex and enthralling subject, and suggesting new insights into this most long-standing of all human love-affairs.
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of I Could Pee on This, Francesco Marciuliano, comes a lesson from cats in resistance. Cats are done with humans' crap. For too long they have put up with baby talk, the humiliation of holiday costumes, and the social injustice of being told, "No." They will not sleep through this anymore. We humans have woken the beast, and in this book they have gathered together to reclaim their voice, loudly and repeatedly until we pay attention. Watch the uprising unfold, through anthems such as "Redefine Terms," "Accepted," "Decide," "A New Dawn," and "Just What Do You Think You're Doing?" Show support for your feline friends and try to understand why they're so spitting mad.
Now she turns her attention to our mysterious, playful and surprisingly wise feline friends. Every page of this full colour gift book pairs a charming photograph with just the right sentiment, offering an inspiring life lesson we can learn from cats. 'Rub people the right way.' 'Be fearless...but have an escape plan.' 'Stay a little wild.' Whether they are hunting, snoozing, playfully wreaking havoc, or showering us with affection, cats have a lot to teach us about living a full life (after all, with nine lives, they have a lot of experience!). As Copeland reminds us, all we have to do is observe with an open heart and mind. Tender, funny, and warm, Really Important Stuff My Cat Has Taught Me is a loving tribute to the feline spirit.

Wild? These Cats are Furious! is a true account of former Cats Protection volunteer Heather Cook's introduction to the shadowy world of wild, or feral, cats and her continuing fascination with these brave and beautiful creatures. Ferals are not a distinct species and may look exactly the same as Fluffy or Grand Champion Wandering Whimsy, but a true feral would make a Tasmanian Devil look cuddly. There are phoney ferals, of course, and this book exposes these pretenders for the lightweights they are - along with cats like Heather's own little Evie, who is sometimes feral and sometimes not, depending on the weather or what she had for breakfast... Wild? These Cats are Furious! is primarily a tribute to the cats from the wrong side of the tracks; cats who have survived by living on their wits and being sensible enough to make the best of a stale sandwich if it was the only thing on offer; cats who have defended their half-starved kittens from marauding foxes, rats and the odd human scumbag who thinks throwing missiles at terrified animals rounds off a good night out.
