It'¬?s rare to find a child whose very first best friend wasn'¬?t a fuzzy teddy bear or downy blanket. Whether clutched securely in little arms each night or dragged gamely through the playground each day, these fiercely loved companions universally ease the uncertainties and loneliness of childhood. DIRTY WOW WOW AND OTHER LOVE STORIES celebrates the lives of fifty transitional love objects: a sweetly poignant collection of stuffies, blankies, lovies, and dolls who inspired and comforted their owners. Bundles of love and warmth fashioned from fluff and fur, these cherished friends have a lifetime of stories sewn up in their tattered bodies--a trip to Paris smushed in a suitcase, a secret hiding spot behind the family liquor cabinet, an interminable wait in the lost-and-found bin before a joyousreunion at home. With stunning photographs that reveal the personalities within, this thoughtful tribute is at once funny and oddly soothing-like a certain shabby buddy who'¬?s tucked away but never forgotten. Hear the NPR Weekend Edition interview with the authors of Dirty Wow Wow Reviews"This charming book would be a perfect gift for collectors and also an offbeat surprise for new parents."-Minneapolis Star Tribune "Dirty Wow Wow'¬?s striking photographs and brief narratives stir up vivid memories of . . . long-lost companions."-Southwest Spirit Magazine"This clever work, peppered with sumptuous snapshots of raggedy dolls, pays tribute to the beloved companions of childhood."-Entertainment Weekly'¬?s "Must List" View the gallery of entries from the Show Us your Dirty Wow Wow Contest From the Hardcover edition.

What is it about a dressed-up dog that’s so irresistible? Fortunately, most pups patiently put up with this foolishness--and that just heightens the hilarity. Never has doggie-wear come wilder, wackier, and wittier than these 33 designs from Emmy(R)-nominated TV craft hostess, Cathie Filian. Cathy’s own furry friend, Max, has tested them all out and enthusiastically barked his approval of this funny, irreverent collection. Best of all, dog-crazy but sewing-challenged humans will appreciate how easy these colorful clothes are to stitch. (Some simply involve embellishing a store-bought costume.) All the projects are based on two easily adjustable basic patterns: one consists of a top and a skirt; the other, a cape. Among the delightfully stylish extras: a fluffy collar, top hat, leg wraps, and more. The cool canine attire includes such Halloween favorites as a witch, cowgirl, fire patrol dog, and skeleton, plus more unusual designs, like a sea dragon and candy striper. Many reflect the popularity of certain people costumes, such as Elvis, surfer dude, biker babe, and Red Hat Ladies. Some come in pairs, like the bride and groom. Each project is charmingly photographed on an adorable dog, accompanied by laugh-out-loud captions that enhance this one-of-a-kind book’s appeal.

A bull shark in the swamp? No one in the Louisiana town of St. Roch believes it at first, but when a local boy has a face-to-face encounter with the toothy monster, every big fisherman is called out for the hunt. There's a big cash bounty on the shark. Sharp-eyed Birdie Gaux and her handsome dog Bowser can't help noticing that shark fever is causing some shady doings in town. For instance, where is Snoozy, the clerk who works at the Gaux family fishing store? He's the town's best fisherman, but suddenly he's missing. Is a rival bounty hunter behind Snoozy's suspicious disappearance? Or perhaps the marine biologist who said he'll do anything to keep the shark alive? Birdie and Bowser are determined to find Snoozy and bring him home safe, but the job is more dangerous than they know. Bowser better practice his paddling: He and Birdie are heading for deep waters . . .

What is woW Wow? What isn't? This surprising, quirky, up-to-the-minute guide to the web's most interesting and original sites transcends boundaries and categories to offer in-depth peeks at sites most Internet guides overlook, because they're too obscure, too hard to find, or just too strange. The brainchild of Fuel -- one of the world's most innovative internet marketing and design firms -- woW Wow draws on an impressive group of contributors from around the world: from journalists to musicians to artists and more. Their views, opinions, and interests are as diverse as the subject matter they present and, without being technical or highbrow, their 400-word essays about the sites they love best are brimming with insight and personal reflection. The resulting collection is a true kaleidoscope of the weird and wonderful. Where else can you find a tribute to Mr. Blow-up, a latex-loving fetishist, back-to-back with directions to the Payphone Project, or information about disinfo.com, the "subculture search engine"? A website accompanying the book provides hot links to sites reviewed in woW Wow and will act as an information and message board, encouraging visitors' comments and suggestions for new sites worth reviewing. Playfully presented in a layout that's both colorful and imaginative, woW Wow is a unique and unforgettable self-guided tour to the farthest reaches of the ever-growing Internet universe.

A deeply affecting, funny, insightful meditation that challenges readers to find the spiritual meaning of parenting. Every day, parents are bombarded by demands. The pressures of work and life are relentless; our children’s needs are often impossible to meet; and we rarely, if ever, allow ourselves the time and attention necessary to satisfy our own inner longings. Parenthood is difficult, demanding, and draining. And yet, argues Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg, if we can approach it from a different mindset, perhaps the work of parenting itself can offer the solace we seek. Rooted in Judaism but incorporating a wide-range of religious and literary traditions, Nurture the Wow asks, Can ancient ideas about relationships, drudgery, pain, devotion, and purpose help make the hard parts of a parent’s job easier and the magical stuff even more so? Ruttenberg shows how parenting can be considered a spiritual practice—and how seeing it that way can lead to transformation. This is a parenthood book, not a parenting book; it shows how the experiences we have as parents can change us for the better. Enlightening, uplifting, and laugh-out-loud funny, Nurture the Wow reveals how parenthood—in all its crazy-making, rage-inducing, awe and joy-filled moments—can actually be the path to living fully, authentically, and soulfully.
