Dog Ear Publishing releases “First Friend, Best Friend” by Leslie Rohrbacker.

Twin boys show why they are best friends in this new children’s book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Being a twin means having a friend even before birth. This new book takes readers on a fanciful journey narrated by one of the twins, describing life inside his mother and what happens once they reach the outside world. Born one minute apart, the two boys showcase the special bond that exists between twins.

“First Friend, Best Friend,” inspired by the real-life journey of the author and her twin sons, relays a series of adventures the boys experience from birth to their first day of school. Although they are twins, they aren’t identical. One has brown eyes while the other has blue, one is a bit smaller than the other, and one likes to sleep in while the other gets up early. Despite their differences, the twins share the most wonderful gift of all: Being each other’s first friend and best friend. Colorful watercolor illustrations by Katy Betz provide a delightful accompaniment to this charming story of brotherly love.

This is the first book for author Leslie Rohrbacker, a published blogger who also is a lawyer and executive. She and her husband live in northern New Jersey with their twin boys, who inspired Rohrbacker to write the book. Katy Betz is an illustration professor and has created work for books, magazines and exhibits.

Sea-Cat Brothers Discover What’s Really Important in New Children’s Book by Shanthi Thiruppathi

coverThiruppathiBrother sea-cats each have a role when they drift apart after a disagreement. This new book released by Dog Ear Publishing features colorful illustrations and a lesson in getting along.

Tiggy and Tobias, brother sea-cats who live in a lighthouse on a beach, don’t seem to have much in common. In this new illustrated children’s book, sibling rivalry takes its toll, must as it does in human families. Rough-and-tumble Tiggy tells sea-glass-collector Tobias that he doesn’t act like a real cat. Tobias, whose feelings are hurt, begins to hang out with a pelican who shares his interest in art. But when Tiggy gets in real trouble, it’s Tobias who must come to his rescue.

“The Tales of Tiggy & Tobias: Brotherly Love” shares the story of the growing friendship between Tobias and Pilot, the friendly pelican. Soon, Tobias is finding fish on his doorstep – fish that he doesn’t need to share with the scary seagulls he and his brother typically confront. One day the fish don’t show up and neither does his brother. Tobias finds the courage to search for Tiggy with help from Pilot, and the two brothers discover that what’s important about being a sea-cat isn’t fierce fighting and hunting skills but having the courage to be true and loving to others.

Richly vivid illustrations by the author bring the coastline to life and play a starring role in this story featuring a gentle lesson about brotherly love and affection. The charming story works equally well for young readers or those who prefer to sit in a lap.

Author and illustrator Shanthi Thiruppathi was inspired by the rugged beauty of the North Carolina coast and her two real-life cats to create this children’s book. She earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of North Carolina Wilmington and is pursuing an art career through her business, Into the Blue. Thiruppathi’s painting “Salty Curl” was displayed as part of the State of the Art/Art of the State exhibit from June to October 2011 at the Cameron Art Museum in Wilmington, N.C. This book is the first in a planned series of stories featuring the cats.
