A mixed-breed offspring of Marley and Me and All Creatures Great and Small, His Name Was Brownie is your next book for fun. Peopled with multiple Marley dogs (and Marlas as well), nearly all listeners will recognize their dog or cat, son or daughter, spouse - maybe even themselves - as the featured characters barrel their way through their laughable adventures.Collies and Irish wolfhounds bound through the story; but they have many companions, including a tuxedo cat, a mastiff, a demented border collie, two Siamese cats, two 25-pound attack cats, the monkey from hell, a Labrador retriever nicknamed ´´Blockhead” because of his habit of getting his head stuck in plastic milk cartons, black witch moths, and a bufo. Their escapades take them through beautiful areas of Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Hawaii before the clan finally lands in Wisconsin near the Wisconsin River.Dr. Judi Roller has been breeding and showing collies and Irish wolfhounds for many years, garnering AKC championships for her dogs and several group placements along the way. She has also enjoyed judging multiple AKC matches. Her previous book, The Politics of the Feminist Novel, won an Outstanding Academic Book award, and she has published literary criticism as well as book reviews and occasional poems and a short story.Her BA cum laude was earned at Bowling Green State University, and her doctorate came from the University of Michigan, even though she is a homegrown Ohio State Buckeye, which became a challenge while she was teaching freshman English during her graduate work at Michigan. Now retired from university administration, she has more time for dogs, golf, travel, bridge, and reading. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Felicia Elenum.

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Laugh Out Loud by James Patterson, read by Nate Begle. Jimmy loves reading so much that he´s inspired to start a book company for kids - run by kids. It´s a big dream for a 12-year-old boy - some would even say it´s laugh-out-loud ridiculous! But that doesn´t stop Jimmy from dreaming even bigger! His company will be as imaginative and fun as Willy Wonka´s chocolate factory...with a Ferris wheel instead of an elevator, a bowling alley in the break room, and a river filled with floating books! He just has to believe in himself and his idea. And maybe win the lottery. In this hilarious story filled with clever references to children´s book favourites, James Patterson shows young listeners that anything can be achieved if you believe in yourself no matter what! PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nate Begle.
