A rich, moving story of the link between a street-wise cat and a man who earns his living on the streets—perfect for cat lovers.
Forget world records like most consecutive hiccups while upside-down or most railroad spikes jammed up a guy’s nose. Give me the more accessible couch-spud freakdom that is setting video game records.
This encouraging tale of finding love and hope in unexpected places is full of small yet valuable life lessons that any animal-lover would appreciate...

One of the best things about Chic On a Shoe String is that it teaches how to recycle and repurpose so many things from old clothes to broken necklaces. A ribbon becomes a belt, shoe laces a charismatic choker and a silk scarf a summer top. It’s a fun way to learn to sew and build a wardrobe.
This is a great book and one this reviewer intends to keep and use with my next day or evening with friends, family, and acquaintances. Eating and drinking are great at a get-together but adding one of these games will provide a memorable time for all! Unique and very nicely done

Best of all, Mr. Fate is a fan of the coyote. . .
The book works more like an invitation to join the man for a few pints of Newcastle and enjoy the stories he’s been punting around to close friends for years.
