Honey the fun-loving Cocker Spaniel is back! We first met Honey in Just Be You where she discovered the joy of being herself. In her new adventure, Honey shares her Recipe for Joy. One night when she has trouble falling asleep, Honey’s imagination takes flight as she re-lives the joy and fun she experiences every day. Through Ann Ramsey’s action-packed verse readers feel all the excitement Honey feels as she chases the tennis ball, swims, dances, and sings her way through life. Ann’s amazing and delightful digital illustrations show the many moods and antics of this lovable little dog. As a special treat, bird watchers should keep their eyes open for Honey’s feathered friends on each page. A gallery at the end of the book identifies each bird with its picture in the story – a great teaching tool! Fall in love with Honey all over again in I Cannot Sleep. ~ Copyright (c) 2013 by Peggy Tibbetts

crazy bitch thumbThe dog park where Honey romps in the pages of I Cannot Sleep and the video A Dog’s Recipe for Joy is the same park featured in Crazy Bitch, known as Dogland by Venus and Zeus where they shared many happy adventures with Honey.

Crazy Bitch tells the story of the deep love that can exist between humans and dogs, as well as the intense — and sometimes very complicated – love that can exist between two dogs.”

Crazy Bitch is one book dog lovers won’t want to put down.”
