Bad Boy Bassett Brothers Visit The Waterside Yorkies


We found these great books online about a pair of Basset Hound brothers. They reminded us of our Yorkies, so we decided to get both books.
The first one is called "Stanley & Norman bad boy bassett brothers" and is written by Frank Monahan and is illustrated by Deborah FitzGerald. They grab at your heart strings as you fall in love with the two brothers. You will learn some of life's lesson as the brothers go through trial and error. Each page comes to life as your read and follow the pair on their journey.

The second book is called "Stanley & Norman: bassett brothers backyard buddies". This tells the story of the two brothers as they try and make some new friends in the outside world. A trip that leads them and you into discovering the wonders of the world.


Both are excellent books, and were received very well by the Yorkies...by the time we read the first book they fell asleep for their afternoon nap. We had to finish it later that evening...what you don't read to your dogs....come on...we know we're not alone.

So we read the second book the next day and the Yorkies loved it too...we knew they would. We only hope that some of the lesson's in the storylines rub-off on them. Yorkies and Bassett's are very similar in being adventurist.

So please go check out Stanley & Norman on their website http://stanleyandnorman.com/ and order the books. Tell them you read about the books on our blog.

You can even arrange to have the author visit your childs school and tell about his writing process, read to the kids and show them photos of the real Stanley & Norman. We recommend both books, even if you don't read them to your dogs, you can read them to your kids, grandkids or anyone who appreciates children's books.

Rocket Science Productions (publisher's) and Frank Monahan (author) are conducting a book drive to help out the many organizations that can't afford any books. Please help them out if you can, just go to their website and click on "Book Drive".

We hope you enjoy them as much as the Yorkies did. And we will be trying out the books this fall when my wife goes back to school. She helps teach kindergardener's, they will love, love, love these books. I will blog about that experience once it happens, and tell you how they enjoyed them. Please check back with us, and thanks for stopping by.
