"Trail of the Viking" is the first series of stories about Those Amazing Dogs. It includes the complete text from books one throug...h five, including "African River Adventure," "In the Viking Volcano," "At the Arctic Circle," "At the Pirate Bay," and "On the Coral Island." This exciting story follows Max, Molly and Oddie (a Lhasa Apso, a Yorkshire Terrier and a Pit Bull) on their journeys with archaeological adventurers Felix and Erica Strong. From the rain forests of central Africa, through the frozen Arctic, down through Mexico and across the ocean to a mysterious island in the South Pacific, this group follows clues and seeks to uncover the links between lost civilizations and a seemingly impossible map discovered among 1000 year old Viking artifacts. Along the way, the dogs rely on their ability to make unlikely friendships wherever they go to rescue their human companions ? and occasionally each other ? from traps hidden in ancient ruins, natural disasters, sinking ships, and many other exciting and dangerous situations. The stories are crafted to inspire kids and adults alike with the imaginative characters and a broad historical foundation. Inside the fantastic tale there is much to learn about ancient cultures and modern societies, as well as bits of science, sociology, eco-awareness, and of course exotic animals from around the world. The dogs and their human companions learn through their adventures that not only is our planet a small and connected place, but that there is also much in common between the past and present. With the spirit of "Indiana Jones" and other classic cliff-hangers, the dogs find themselves hot on the heels of their archaeologist companions in one perilous situation after another. Max, the Lhasa Apso, is the oldest and considers himself the team leader. The puppy of the group, a Yorkshire Terrier named Molly, is always a bit too eager to jump right into whatever situation they find themselves in. She is constantly watched over by Oddie, the young Pit Bull, who is the muscle of the group whose size and strength is matched by his sweetly innocent view of the world. Individually, these dogs all have their own unique abilities, but it is as a team that they are the biggest success. Working together is not always easy, but they discover that having friends is quite possibly the best treasure of all. Read More

THE CAT, THE SUN, AND THE MIRROR is a private-detective story like no other. Its basis is twofold. First, the ancient Japanese myt...h of the Sun Goddess who disappears, thus casting the world in darkness. Second, the American myth of the loner hero. So what happens is this: one morning people in the city any city wake up to find the Sun was gone missing that was a fact. Who to turn to? A private eye, that s who but not just any one: Wow, this private eye is one Cool Cat He s got to be, wearin that hat. But where would he find our missing Lady Sun? His search takes him to Mister Bigg, who wears the crown, the boss of all the crime in town ; then to Major Domo, a go-between for the elite the jet-set crowd, the power brokers, the proud ; then to the Sun s brother, the Lord of the Sea, who has aspirations to be number one a much bigger Ocean, without the Sun. Blind alleys, all of them. Finally, aided by a tip from the guru-like Old Dog and helped by Major Domo s daughter, the Majorette, Cool Cat finds the Sun in a very unlikely place. But will she return to shed her light on a world that no longer appreciates her? The book is 96 pages, roughly half of them illustrations. In the past few years, as the story was developed in readings in various parts of the country (see list of readings and performances at coolcatnoir.tumblr.com), the creators have found that the combination of these illustrations and the rhymed verse of the narration and dialogue have achieved total success in holding the attention and gaining the appreciation of audiences ranging in age from three years to ninety. The same was true for the staged production in the summer of 2011 in Northeast Pennsylvania, in which the illustrations were projected on a scrim above the stage. Many more readings are being planned, including several in New York City (including at the Japan Society of New York), where the two authors and the illustrator all have extensive contacts in the literary, theatre, dance, and political worlds. Other locations in Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, North Carolina (Raleigh-Durham, Asheville), California (Bay Area), and New Orleans are all on the list. The illustrator, Hannah Way Rawe, has already had Cool Cat buttons made and is now working on mugs and T shirts. And more Cool Cat/ Majorette mystery-adventures are on the way: THE CAT, THE PRINCE, AND THE GOLDEN HERON, also based on a myth (about bioluminescence) has been written, and THE CAT, THE TWINS, AND THE BALLGAME (about the Mayan myth of the Hero Twins) is in progress. We, the creators of THE CAT, THE SUN, AND THE MIRROR, know that its enchanting mixture of fantasy, film-noir atmospherics, romance, socially conscious messaging, unique characters, and a fun writing style has broad appeal: it has been tested in readings and performances, and it has passed.

Chumbles and Grim are not so much mysteries as adventure stories though, with a lot of wacky physical comedy and character humor thrown in, which I very much enjoyed." --Daniel C. <h3>It was quite by chance that I first met the well-known scientist and inventor, Theophilus Grim, on a brisk and beautiful October morning in 1890. I had, of course, heard of Professor Grim prior to that day. Word of the tremendous explosion at the Scientific University of London had reached every corner of the city and far beyond ?
