The Dog Rules (Damn Near Everything)

by William J. Thomas

From the Book Jacket: well-written book on the truth about human-dog relationships. . . . The Dog Rules is hilarious, but there's plenty of truth behind the laughs. -Jon Katz, author of A Dog Year: Twelve Months, Four Dogs and Me and The New Work of Dogs: Tending to Love, Life, and Family Once a cat person and the author of the best-seller Life in the Litter Box, Thomas explains: "Training a cat was easy. You gave the cat an order, the cat gave you the finger, end of training session. But you give a dog an order and he wags his tail and wiggles his bum and you say to yourself-I got a shot here!"

The New Boy Is Blind

by William J. Thomas

from the book jacket: Ricky is in the fourth grade-but he's never been in school before. He is just like all his classmates except for one special difference-he is blind. How he adjusts to this new world of the clasroom, the playground, and the people around him-and how they adjust to him-makes a sensitive story about frustration and triumph. Ricky's friends, teachers, and, most of all, his mother learn an important lesson that while Ricky is blind, he is still able to do everything.
