When I received a preview copy of the new book written by Raven Howell (and illustrated by Ann Pilicer), I thought, "Well, it's about dogs - and I'm a cat person - how much can I end up liking it?" Was I ever wrong! I am so happy I've had the opportunity to read So You Want a Puppy? and am ordering a hard copy. The story is balanced delicately and thoughtfully between real-life advice and teachings about owning a new pet, and a light-hearted and funny plot of puppy prowess and the family trying ...more

It’s impossible to read this book without wanting a puppy of your own. It’s all about puppies and having a new dog, a great book to read with kids leading up to getting the family dog. It clearly depicts all the wonderful things about owning a puppy but also the responsibilities that come with it too. There’s even tips for owners in the back of the book.

A new puppy in the house! Follow the adorable children as they play, train, and love up an adorable new puppy named Murray!
This children's book is a delight! I love the rhyming prose and the feel of the words bouncing off my tongue. Not only are the illustrations adorable and colorful, but they pull you into the story and anyone who has ever been around a puppy, will feel the excitement and emotions of the children as they experience the rambunctious little fur ball.

Poetry and rhyme has always come naturally to me. In school years, I excelled in creative writing, enjoying the freedom of language in poetry and its various forms. I went on to work in New York graphic arts firms, and was a songwriter and worked in publishing for NYC record labels.

I transitioned my focus from song writing to writing poetry for greeting cards, and had much success, inspiring me to
