Fun Book of the Day: Wag by Patrick McDonnell

A few years ago I had the opportunity to meet the creator of the syndicated comic strip Mutts, Patrick McDonnell, at a lunch for one of his new books. He is truly one of the nicest people around. I was impressed that he was not impressed by his success. He was humble and sweet. I love his books, they express the feelings of how we should be in life. That life should be simple and reminds us that it is ok to be happy with very little. It is actually that concept that is brought forth in his new book called WAG!.

Wag! tells the story of Earl the dog and how he wags his tail when he eats, gets his belly rubbed even going for a walk. Mooch realizes that Earl wagging his tail equals 'love"....a really sweet story .

As I said before I love Patrick McDonnell books, one of his earlier books that is great for everyone is his book The Gift of Nothing, which is the perfect gift for the person who has everything.
