For such a brief book, McDonnell has done a marvelous thing. He doesn't try to give us the entire life of Jane Goodall, just a glimpse at a child who was fascinated by animals and nature and Africa and how that lead to the adult she became. The art is perfect, incorporating Victorian animal illustra...

5 Stars, Buy it. The kindle version of this is a little weird, it has outlines on the pages and looks like you are reading it on your phone because there is a battery and wi fi signal on it. Anyway, this is a cute story about a little guy named tek who is completely hooked on gadgets. Once tek gets...

4 Stars, buy it Pretty typical mutts book. Some of the typical jokes are regurgitated. However I still love Mcdonnells love of nature and animals.

The story revolves around a man dressed in a black tuxedo with a red bow tie leaving his house. He discovers a skunk on his doorstep so he silently closes his door...

I am a Mutts fan, but more for the he...

Disclaimer: ARC via Netgalley. A few years ago, I stopped playing my city’s local paper simply because it sucked. It really did. I heard that it has gotten better, but I don’t know. The only thing that I have missed from that paper was McDonnell’s Mutts. (Yes, I know, but readi...

Mooch the cat needs to find a birthday present for Earl the dog, who's already got everything. What's he going to do? He cunningly solves the problem by giving Earl nothing, wrapped up in a box with a pretty bow.It's cute, though if I were going to be pedantic I might complain that the basic joke wa...
