Selfish Little Bob, Selfish No More!
SELFISH LITTLE BOB, SELFISH NO MORE!
A RHYMING BOOK ABOUT SELFISH ACTIONS THAT CAN HELP SHOW CHILDREN HOW TO BECOME A MORE SELFLESS PERSON AND A LESS SELFISH ONE.
In a little burrow all covered with vines lived a cute little rabbit—but a selfish one!
Little Bob the rabbit was as cute as can be,
But he had not any manners, as you will see,
At breakfast, when Mom would fill his cup,
He'd whistle and stare or just look up.
Mom thought it was somewhat strange that he was four years old, soon to be five, and still behaved so badly. Something happens as the little rabbit ventured into the woods! Will he change? Each rhyme is accompanied by charming illustrations by well-known illustrator, Emily Zieroth.

WHAT'S BIG TALE 1 ABOUT?
Let me introduce myself... I'm Gus, the most handsome (so they say) rainbow trout in Captain Cove. Life is grand in the river, just swimming along and munching the odd caddis fly. Not to say that my life revolves around eating - I do have some other interests too! Although I do love food! My best friend is TooToo, a pretty golden carp. She makes me laugh, but she has a little problem. I won't say what as she might be listening and I don't want to embarrass her, but it has to do with green bubbles and it surprised my little spider friend.
In Big Tale 1 of my Fishy Adventures, I meet a new swimmer on the block - a really talkative brook trout, who is a little annoying. I think he wants to look like me because I sparkle and I reckon he might have a little crush on TooToo. Will we become friends - let's find out... Meanwhile, TooToo hears some gossip about some treasure... but is it really real?

Thanks Lil Ren
When Lil Ren moves from the city to a cozy little house on an island, he discovers that the town's bully cat had followed him. Uninvited, Big Ben the Cat would sneak in through unlocked doors or cracked windows, setting traps all over the place, disturbing the little mouse. Then one day:
A sudden boom, both thunder and lightning
Startled the cat; he found it quite frightening.
Anxiety filled Lil Ren the mouse:
"Yikes, the rain may flood my house!"
Lil Ren gathers wood, nails and a hammer and invites Big Ben to help. The cat falls to the ground laughing, mocking the hard-working little mouse.
Silly Ben called out to his little buddy,
"Come and see this silly fuddy-duddy
A bit of rain and he has already begun
Building a boat instead of having fun."
Even the giggles and remarks didn't stop this wise little mouse! Lil Ren hammers away, getting soaked as he puts finishing touches on his new boat. Big waves start to pound all around, and the mouse invites all his friends to come in the boat, even the bully cat. Did Big Ben get in the boat? See what happens—did Cat wake up and get wise like Mouse?
