Annie. Defying the odds, he rescued a down-on-his-luck dog from a local shelter and, together, they redefined what animal performers could do.

In this heartwarming book, he tells the true stories of “throw-away” animals who came back to work with some of entertainment’s biggest names, names like Bernadette Peters, Sarah Jessica Parker, Mike Nichols, the New York City Ballet, and many more.

It is a beautiful sunny day on the Gulf Coast of Florida—perfect for a Jet Ski excursion to Dog Bone Island with a pack of buddies who live in the seaside suburb of Barkington Bluffs. Tebow, a boxer, is outgoing, while his best friend Caspar, a golden retriever, is bashful. They know other pups in the neighborhood as well: Hershey, a spunky Yorkie; Shadow, a motherly Australian shepherd; Sage, a standard poodle; Bailey, a yellow lab; and Hunter, a red golden retriever, who tends to be surly. Early in the morning, Tebow loads up his Jet Ski with Frisbees, tennis balls, and chew treats, and cruises out to Dog Bone Island to meet up with his friends for Sunday Funday. Everyone is having a great time—until Hunter ignores the sign that warns of a rip current and begins to be swept out to sea! Can he make it safely back to shore? In this children’s story, when a group of canine friends enjoys a day of fun, one of them finds himself in deep trouble on the water.

In the tradition of the Latin American testimonio, this is the story of Juan Rivera, a.k.a. Juanito Xtravaganza, a Latino runaway youth who ends up homeless in the streets of New York in the late 70s and becomes partner of the internationally famous 1980s Pop artist Keith Haring during some of the most frenetically productive years of his brief life, as told to the author and retold by him. A hybrid text--part testimonio, part linguistic and cultural analysis, and part art criticism--this is also a history of New York Latino neighborhoods during this period of devastating disinvestment and gentrification, as well as a personal, heart-felt meditation on the art of listening and the ethical limits of representing queer Latino lives.

"Not since George Bailey in It's a Wonderful Life has someone so lifted the spirits of an entire community. That the 'someone' in this case is, in fact, two library cats makes this true tale of the love of literature combined with a fondness for nose licking all the more magical. This book, like a purring kitten who may also be a genie, should be welcomed into any home."—Francesco Marciuliano, New York Times bestselling author of I Could Pee on This: And Other Poems by Cats It all started with mice in the library. Assistant librarian Jan Louch and a coworker decided that what the library needed was a cat. Or, even better, two cats. Soon, they found a pair of Scottish Folds who were perfect for the job. Jan named them Baker and Taylor, and they took up residence in the library. But these cats were much more than mousers. Visitors to the library fell in love with Baker and Taylor and their antics just as Jan had. And then, after Jan let the cats be photographed for a poster, they became feline celebrities. Children from across the country wrote them letters, fans traveled from far and wide to meet them, and they became the most famous library cats in the world. In The True Tails of Baker and Taylor, Jan Louch looks back and tells the remarkable story of these two marvelous cats and the people—readers, librarians, and cat lovers of all ages—who came together around them.
