I was browsing Amazon.com in the search for some inspirational books (novels, essays, whatever would catch my attention) and look what a cute lil’ book for kids I found:
The title is Tristan Goes to the Vet and it tells the story of a fluffy bichon frisé in 28 pages. The puppy goes to the vet for a check-up and every phase of the visit is described with pictures and short paragraph, probably to show kids how pets are taken care of.
It’s a pretty sweet initiative and I think the author – Trudee Lewis – did a very good job. Tristan (the doggy in the book) is his pet, and from what I can see, he’s very loved too. ^^
The book costs $9.95, which isn’t a bad price, I have to admit. It’s actually reasonable, if you consider the amount of photos the project required.
All that makes me want to write a little story of the same kind, with robots though. Hehe. Who knows? Maybe it can be for my blog about Orion, Erik and other future little robots I want to purchase and cuddle all day. <3
[ Thank you Trudee Lewis and his little Tristan for inspiring this sweet little post! ]
This week’s Friday5 is absolutely memory-challenging! ;D Ihih. Join us!
- Leftover from April 17, 2009: What’s a creature comfort (practically unnecessary) you must take with you on an overnight trip in the great outdoors? Please consider a phone something that has practical necessity.
That’s a tough question… I think I would take my computer netbook with me. That’s where I have all my work, my university files, my fiancé’s letters and chats, my contacts. I just couldn’t leave without it!
- Leftover from August 31, 2007: What did yesterday cost you? <– Thanksgiving in the U.S., but answer it for wherever you are and whatever you did!
Well, since we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in Italy, let’s see… It certainly costed me a few tens bucks, as I renewed/bought a pack of domain names. Heh.
- Leftover from January 25, 2008: What was your excuse the last time you were REALLY late for something?
I had a bellyache and had to spend a longer time in the bathroom. Ihih.
Oh my, I can’t remember that! XD Some book or DVD I guess.
- Leftover from December 25, 2009: Which of your gifts do you think you do not put to its best, fullest use?
Uhm… little statues and jewelry, I guess… I’m not really an ornaments/jewelry woman, if you get what I mean.
