100 new and classic images of popular Instagram celebrity Jimmy Choo the Bull Terrier On Rafael Mantesso's thirtieth birthday, his wife left him. She took their cookware, their furniture, their photos, their decorations. She left Rafael alone in an empty all-white apartment. The only thing she didn't take was their bull terrier, whom she'd named after her favorite shoe designer: Jimmy Choo. With only Jimmy for company, Rafael found inspiration in his blank walls and his best friend and started snapping photos of Jimmy Choo as he trotted and cavorted around the house in glee. Then, when Jimmy collapsed in happy exhaustion next to the white wall, on a whim Rafael grabbed a marker and drew a new world around his ginger-eared pup. Suddenly, Rafael felt his long-dormant inspiration—for drawing, for art, for life—returning. The result? Hundreds of charming and cheeky images chronicling the owner and dog's relationship and adventures, including poses in a Star Wars stormtrooper helmet, passed out with liquor bottles, and as the shark in Jaws. Mantesso's Instagram feed quickly garnered fans from all over the world and caught the attention of major media outlets like Today, The Huffington Post, USA Today, and the Daily Mail, as well as Jimmy's namesake, the luxury shoe brand Jimmy Choo Ltd. Now, Mantesso presents a definitive selection of new and classic images of Jimmy and includes the backstory of how the two became such great collaborators. As heartwarming as it is hilarious, A Dog Named Jimmy will delight animal lovers everywhere. From the Hardcover edition.

Long ago, Dogma told me and my littermates there comes a time when every puppy must have his very own family. Dogs are loved by people for many reasons, and it is one of the most wonderful things in the entire world when a human pack or family comes to our kennel to find some of its happiness. A puppy is very lucky to be matched up with his own person or family who will love him forever. With these thoughts, I prayed to Saint Bernard for my very own family. Eventually, they came, and in the fourteen-plus years I shared with them, my life had both wonderful and miserable times. The hardest thing was learning right and wrong. Fortunately, Angelo Wingsandhalo was there to help, and what he said made sense. His archrival, Lucifer Hornsandtail, however, said things that were too good to be ignored. If I could remember, did I do what was good, or did I have a good time? I am Jellybean. This is my story. Not a word of this is untrue.

WINNERS: Best Illustrated Children's Ebook - MOONBEAM Awards 2015 WINNERS: Best Children's Animal Book - READER'S FAVORITE Awards 2015 WINNERS: Best Illustrated Children's book - IPPY Awards 2015 Join Milo, the long forgotten bull terrier pet, as he travels the world in search of nothing more than a friend he can call his own. Milo & Ze is the eagerly-awaited second illustrated children's book by Mark Watson and Pablo Michau, authors of the bestselling, "The Shark in the Park". "Milo is a cute bull terrier puppy who has been forgotten, locked in a kennel, until one night a blinding light comes out of the night sky and smashes his kennel creating a crater that the bull terrier braves his way to peer into and hears a mole who asks his name and the little bull terrier discovers a fallen star: `'Never again need you wish for a friend, he waits for you at your journey's end.' And off Milo goes on a journey, sees a truck, meets Big the Pig who invites him to his yacht which turns out to be a leaky barge but Milo jumps ship and ultimately comes ashore to see Big the Pig safe and free. Milo meets a pelican who gives him a ride. The next ride is on a camel but a sandstorm hits, covers the little bull terrier, but he is discovered by an elephant who helps him on his journey. But more adventures arise - a tiger, a mountain goat, a cavern and finally, the little bull terrier puppy arrives at the door where lives an Indian lad by the name of Ze: Milo finally has a friend of his own. Enchanting rhyming verse, exquisite illustrations and a heartwarming adventure that simply is restorative and makes the reader feel good. Searching for friends - a great goal and a wonderful destination. Highly recommended for children and art loving adults." Grady Harp, January 15
