“DEAR TABBY” GIVES ADVICE
Hey There, CHATTERS!
Glad to have you back for another CHAT!
This is one smart advice-giving columnist cat! (Even if we rat-types have to say so ourselves.)
Tabby D. Cat helps everyone in Critterville from hamsters and hounddogs to finicky cats and over-chatty parrots, find a little bit of their own happiness. And this kitty does it with humor and a good dose of feline common sense.
So kick off your shoes, sit back with a cup of tea or your favorite cafe latte, and spend the next ten minutes with us and DEAR TABBY.
(You CHATTERS know the drill — enjoy the vid — and we’ll see you on the other side.)
Author Carolyn Crimi is a self-proclaimed “Princess” and transplanted “Lawn GEYE-lander”, now living near Chicago in Evanston, Illinois — where she has been writing some very entertaining children’s books — as she confirms “for centuries.” Her fans have recognized her humor and love of language in books like WHERE’S MY MUMMY? and HENRY AND THE CRAZED PIRATES, both illustrated by John Manders; and the Halloween ‘Romance’ BORIS AND BELLA, illustrated by Gris Grimley. For ‘serious insight’ into this gifted writer, (as well as some good chuckles), Morris and I highly recommend reading the author’s, “My Very Own Scholarly Column”. (The lady’s got one wicked good sense of humor.) Curious about the ‘story behind Dear Tabby?’ Ms. Crimi shares the inspiration with her fans and interested readers on her website.
David Roberts was born in Liverpool, England and has illustrated over 70 books, several of which he did with his sister Lynn. According to Mr. Roberts, Victoria sponge cake is his favorite food; he does not have a mobile phone (good for him!); and this British sartorial gent always wears striped socks — “never plain.” Morris and I both adore his illustrations in IGGY PECK ARCHITECT, written by Andrea Beaty, which Mr. Roberts reveals was influenced by his own favorite artist, David Hockney. Good stuff!
Want to win a FREE COPY of DEAR TABBY by these two unique talents? — Just leave a comment and you’re in the hopper. The winner will be contacted in a few weeks — so don’t miss out! It’s a book that not only brings a smile but also a heartwarming message that will be enjoyed and appreciated by all ages! (Feline and otherwise.)
It’s also a great book for classroom use on the subject of how to write a good letter! Check out the author’s fun activities for this book!
Well, that’s it from here — for now. Please join Morris and me next time when we will be CHATTING about the new Kate Feiffer book — MY SIDE OF THE CAR, illustrated by her dad, Jules Feiffer. (We recommend it as a great gift for Father’s Day — or any day!)
See you then — Stanley
