Calico Cat Has Life-Changing Magical Adventure in New Children’s Book by Chrysie Shaw

coverShaw

Dog Ear Publishing releases “The Cat and the Goldfish” by Chrysie Shaw.

A dip in a fish pond leads to a surprising encounter in this new children’s book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

When a pretty little calico cat with a funny-sounding voice takes part in a magical adventure, anything can happen. Sasquatch, who stars in this new illustrated children’s book, loves to sit by the fish pond and look at the fish swimming below the pink water lilies. When she gets too close to the edge one day and falls in, she has the surprise of her life when she turns into a mercat and encounters a talking goldfish. What happens next will change her life.

“The Cat and the Goldfish” features a whimsical, magical tale about Sasquatch, a real-life cat who arrived at the author’s home as a tiny kitten. Sasquatch, who has a gray coat with patches of tan and white on her face, paws and tummy, is just as much a character and happy cat as the fictional cat who frolics in the pond. Colorful cartoon illustrations by Kezzia Crossley add to the appeal of the book. It’s geared toward 5- to 8-year-olds but also works well as a read-aloud story for adults to share with children.

Author Chrysie Shaw is a longtime animal lover, having grown up in southeastern Montana surrounded by animals. She worked for almost 30 years as a registered nurse before retiring. Shaw now lives near the Rocky Mountains in southern Colorado, once again surrounded by animals. Kezzia Crossley, a freelance illustrator, lives in British Columbia, Canada.

Roberto Guerrero Prompts People to Eliminate Mentally Crippling Aspects of Their Lives in New Book

coverGuerreo

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Mentally Crippled” by Roberto Guerrero.

People can take charge of their own lives and use their natural talents – and brains – to improve themselves and the world. That’s the assertion championed in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

 It’s much easier to blame circumstances and others for what happens than to look internally to find the answers to problems. The author of this new book urges people to take a look at their own lives and vow to use the power of their mind to make changes – no matter how small – that will benefit them and the people in their lives.  Instead of mentally crippling themselves, letting others tell them how to think or letting stress overtake their emotions, they need to take responsibility to achieve their dreams and have a satisfying life.

 “Mentally Crippled” urges readers to challenge themselves like never before, even if it means leaving behind friends who won’t change. Much of his advice is common sense, including the exhortation to combine common sense smarts with book smarts. Come to work on time and be prepared to do the job. Improve your mind by reading books and share that knowledge. Keep your word and your commitments. Be a good friend. “Dare to jump out of your skin and treat others kindly and respectfully,” the author writes. “I dare you to become a giver instead of a taker. I dare you to compliment others and be the first one to smile. … Once you have a different outlook toward life, the universe will return the favor.”

Author Roberto Guerrero was born in the Dominican Republic, the youngest of 10 children. His mother was from St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. He came to the United States in 1969 and graduated from Martin L. King Jr. High School in New York City. Guerrero has worked for the Veterans Administration, including the VA hospital in Gainesville, Fla., since retiring after 22 years of service in the Army. He and his wife, Pauline, married for more than 34 years, have three sons and six grandchildren.
