Эта книжка больше всего напоминает мультфильм Тоторо. И волшебно, и удивительно, и в то же время так знакомо: по настроению, по ощущениям, по картинке, возникающей перед глазами. Потому что детство было у всех. Те, у кого оно было счастливым, с удовольствием вспомнят его, те, кому не так повезло, смогут «добрать» впечатлений, эмоций. «– Я тебя серьезно спрашиваю, подумай хорошенько, прежде чем ответить, – чем носорог хуже василиска? – Ничем не хуже… Только он не чудесный, а нормальный. – Он – чудесный!.. Просто некоторые… ничего не смыслят в чудесах, не замечают их, не ценят, а ждут, пока их начнут развлекать фокусами. И в фокусах, кстати, они тоже ничего не смыслят, принимают их за чудеса, а потом страшно обижаются, кричат, что их обманули… А их не обманули. Их развлекли… И надо уметь отличать обман от искусства». Эта книга для тех, кто не разучился верить в волшебство рядом с собой, и потому с ней получится вернуться в детство – вернуться по следам. Содержит нецензурную брань.

Expanded edition of the original bestseller!
Friar Jack Wintz's bestselling book now includes readers' photos of their beloved four-footed companions who are waiting for them in heaven – where Friar Jack reassures us, with simple teachings from scripture and St. Francis of Assisi, we will see them again!
“Our God is a God of overflowing love, goodness, and beauty who is ready to give over everything to those he loves. This goodness is reflected in the whole family of creation. When God says of any creature, whether human or nonhuman, that it is good or very good, it’s not simply a matter of moral goodness. The creature also has an inherent goodness and beauty—a beauty that reflects God, who is Beauty itself.” Cover photo: Hollie Betzler (2001-2018), Michigan’s first grief therapy dog, served faithfully at her family’s funeral home and area nursing homes for 16 years, giving a comforting paw at just the right time to just the right person. Her family anticipates her serving the same role at the gates of heaven, where she now waits for them.

Even though ferrets are relatively new to the pet world, these charming weasels have been human companions for thousands of years, as author Karen Dale Dustman shares in the opening of Ferrets. The first chapter of the book (“A Nod to Ferret History”) paints a fascinating portrait of ferrets’ place in human and natural history (who knew they were related to minks?). Since ferrets aren’t legal in all states (or cities and counties, depending on local statutes), potential owners are advised to do their homework before purchasing a ferret. (A complete chapter on legal and regulatory concerns can be found at the end of the book.) The chapter “Choosing a Ferret Companion” offers solid advice about selecting a healthy ferret, where to purchase, and owner considerations such as spaying/neutering and de-scenting. The author has written two excellent chapters about acclimating the new ferret to the home and living with this clever, fun-loving critter. These chapters detail the selection of the best cage, litter box options, feeding, ferret-proofing the home for safety, grooming, and daily care. The most important chapter in the book focuses on training the naturally mischievous ferret from developing unacceptable habits (including nipping and squirming). A bright, well-mannered ferret can also be trained to use a litter box, walk on a harness and leash, and perform tricks. The chapter also discusses strategies for dealing with a lost ferret and the importance of microchipping. Keeping the ferret healthy is the subject of “Medical Basics,” a chapter that covers choosing a veterinarian, routine checkups, vaccinations, rabies, heartworm, and ferret-specific ailments. Sidebars on warning signs and first aid will prove especially helpful in emergencies. The appendices of the book include hints for photographing the ferret and lists of clubs, organizations, and websites. Glossary of terms and index included.

A Complete Care Made Easy guide to the irresistible rabbit—that big-eared super pet that is “cuddly, quiet, full of personality, affordable…really cute and really soft,” in the inspired words of author Virginia Parker Guidry. Illustrated with the beautiful photography of Reneé Stockdale, Rabbits begins with a fun chapter on the history beginning with the European wild rabbit, the only species ever to be domesticated, which led to all of our modern-day breeds and varieties of pet rabbit. This guide offers practical advice on choosing the right rabbit for a newby to rabbits, addressing responsibilities, costs, and available breeds as well as sex, size, and personality types. The author gives the reader much to consider, especially when one considers there are 45 different breeds of beautiful bunnies recognized by the American Rabbit Breeders Association. The acquisition of a healthy rabbit from a breeder, shelter, or pet shop is discussed in the chapter “Adopting a Rabbit,” and the future keeper’s home preparations are encapsulated in “Preparing for a Rabbit,” wherein the author discusses indoor and outdoor housing and safety, family introductions, healthful food options, and rabbit supplies. As with all editions in the Complete Care Made Easy series, Rabbits offers the full range of care required to keep a pet happy and healthy, and the chapter “The Best of Care” includes feeding guidelines, grooming tips, handling, training, cleanliness, and travel advice. The health of the rabbit is of paramount concern to the keeper, and the author’s text covers preventive care, veterinary selection, vaccinations, spaying/neutering, dealing typical rabbit health problems, old-age care, and first aid. For keepers who want to understand their rabbits more fully, “Think Like a Rabbit” is a fascinating look into rabbit behavior, language, and potential behavioral issues (such as chewing, biting, and scratching). The expression “breeding like rabbits” is based in pure biology, and rabbit enthusiasts who wish build up their warrens will be interested in reading “The Facts of Life,” a primer on rabbit reproduction. The title of the final chapter of the book, “Just for Fun” says it all: here’s a rundown of the many ways rabbit owners can enjoy their bunnies—rabbit shows, 4-H events, games at home, and getting involved with clubs (listed in the resources section of the book). Glossary and index included.
