Parenting: Illustrated with Crappy Pictures by Amber Dusick

Parenting: Illustrated with Crappy Pictures by Amber Dusick

“The drawings aren’t very good, Mama.”
—Crappy Boy, age 5

Of course you love being a parent. But sometimes, it just sucks. I know. I’m Amber Dusick and I started my blog Parenting: Illustrated with Crappy Pictures because I needed a place to vent about the funny (and frustrating) day-to-day things that happened to me as a parent. Turns out, poop is hilarious! At least when you’re not the one wiping it up.

This book won’t make your frustrating moments any less crappy. But these stories about my Crappy Baby, Crappy Boy and my husband, Crappy Papa, will hopefully make you laugh. Because you’re not alone. And sometimes the crappiest moments make the best memories. Parenting is wonderful! And also, well, you know.

Texts from Mittens by Angie Bailey

Texts from Mittens by Angie Bailey

Texts from Mittens is a series of text message conversations between a snappy, self-absorbed housecat named Mittens and his long-suffering human, a single woman who works away from home during the day. Mittens relentlessly hassles his human all day long, while only taking breaks to watch Judge Judy, hang with his best friend Stumpy, complain about the antics of Drunk Patty the neighbor, ask Grandma for money to buy useless items from QVC, and harass the “filthy beast” dog, Phil.

Angie Bailey is an award-winning writer and blogger, humorist, and professional member of the Cat Writers’ Association. Her primary blog, Catladyland, has won many awards, and her humor writing is featured nearly daily on Catster.com, one of the most popular cat sites on the Web. She loves to photograph her cats in silly poses and sleeps with one eye open. And yes, she has three cats.

“Each installment of Texts From Mittens is like a little gift to brighten your day!” —Kate Benjamin, Hauspanther founder and co-author of Catification with Jackson Galaxy

The Life of Corgnelius and Stumphrey by Susie Brooks

Corgnelius was living the good life with his owners in sunny Los Angeles—he was happy, healthy, likely the cutest corgi known to man and was the star of his own blog.

Known for their fashion-forward style sense and love of adventure, Corgnelius and Stumphrey share their trials and tribulations as they navigate the great wide world, being extremely adorable wherever they go.
