Coming Soon! Shoo Cat by Shari Lyle-Soffe

Are you a cat lover? Do your children love cats? If so, you’ll want to pick up Shoo Cat, the latest by Shari Lyle-Soffe. 

Ethan wants a dog. He has a cat, but they aren’t loyal like dogs. Cats aren’t faithful like dogs and they certainly don’t like water. When Ethan gets a chance to trade his cat for a dog, it’s an adventure he doesn’t expect.

 I have a feeling that Shoo Cat by Shari Lyle-Soffe is going to end up being a favorite of mine. Our family has come to know the joy of loving cats, and I can’t believe that there is a dog more loyal than our Tiger, who follows us on our walks through the neighborhood and kills any furry rodent who makes the mistake of putting his paws on our lawn.

 The poor cat in Shoo Cat spends his time showing Ethan what a great friend he can be, but the stubborn boy can only think about how great it would be to own a dog. It’s cute to see the interaction between the two—or lack there of, because Ethan is pretty much oblivious to everything the cat is doing until after he gets the coveted dog and sees things differently. 

Jack Foster has done a spectacular job illustrating Shoo Cat. Foster has a style that is definitely his own. I could tell right away that he did the artwork on this book, without having to look for his name. 

There’s so much to love about Shoo Cat that your children will wear these pages out from reading the book so often. You’ll probably enjoy reading it too. It’s truly a book for cat lovers everywhere.

A Horse of Course by Shari Lyle-Soffe

A Horse of CourseJoin Aaron, Mom and Dad on a charming and funny adventure in A Horse of Course by Shari Lyle-Soffe.

Grandpa Roy gives Aaron what he always wanted for his birthday–a horse!  Little do Aaron, Mom and Dad know what they are in for.  Horace the horse eats all the cake and ice cream, he hogs the television remote, uses Mom’s toothbrush, and even takes over Aaron’s bed.  What will Aaron do?

In this hilarious adventure, poor Aaron learns the meaning of the phrase, “be careful what you ask for”.  Here he is all excited to finally have a horse, and he soon discovers that maybe a horse won’t be so easy to take care of at his house.  Faced with a decision, he chooses a way that everyone can be happy.

I haven’t laughed so hard over a children’s book in a long time.   Between the storyline and the comical illustrations provided by Eugene Ruble, I laughed until my sides ached.  I’ve had the opportunity to read a few books that Ruble has illustrated, and his imagination and ability to bring a story to life through his pictures never ceases to amaze me.

A Horse of Course is another excellent addition to the list of titles from Shari Lyle-Soffe.  She is also the author of the popular Rooter and Snuffle series and Nothing Stops Noah.  Her love of nature and the fuzzy creatures that often stop by her yard, inspire her stories. 

Learning about right choices and how to make difficult decisions has never been so much fun.  Get your hands on a copy of A Horse of Course today!
