“Gulliver the Lhasa Apso's lap-of-luxury life in Manhattan comes to an end when his master falls in love with someone who is allergic to long-haired dogs. Gully plots to escape from his new home (with the doorman's family in Queens), but, several adventures later, he finally realizes the true meaning of home. This read-aloud chapter book will be a favorite of the season.”

Praise For Gully's Travels

MEAN MARGARET
Pictures by Jon Agee
Finalist for the National Book Award

“Tor Seidler writes in the great tradition of Kenneth Grahame, Walter R. Brooks, and E. B. White, creating worlds where friendship matters, animals talk, and little girls who listen–even ones as mean as Margaret–can learn a life-changing lot about loving-kindness.”–MICHAEL CART, Booklist

THE WAINSCOTT WEASEL
Pictures by Fred Marcellino
An ALA Notable Children's Book

“It's just possible that not since a spider named Charlotte saved a pig named Wilbur has there been a more tender tale of interspecies love and devotion. Tor Seidler infuses his text with warmth, subtlety, and humor.”–The New York Times Book Review

A RAT'S TALE
Pictures by Fred Marcellino
A Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year

“Like Charlotte's Web or The Wind in the Willows, Tor Seidler's delightful new book, A Rat's Tale, is suffused with humor, pathos, and moral beauty.”–The Washington Post Book World
