by Michael F. Katis, With Illustrations by Sharyn Crownover Cheech the Pup is a collection of three stories about a little girl named Heather and her puppy, Cheech. The stories are written in simple language and should be easy to follow for the intended audience of young children. Readers who have a dog of their own or enjoy stories about dogs may especially like Cheech the Pup. ABOUT THE AUTHOR As a dog lover and owner for most of my life, I completely understand the bond that exists between a dog and his owner, especially between a child and his first pup. My own first pup was a beautiful English Setter named Terry. He came into my life when I was a very young child, and I remember him with great fondness to this very day. I now share my life with Max, a massive Rottweiler with a heart of gold. He is my constant companion. This little book is dedicated to my niece, Heather, who is the real Heather in the stories. I hope you enjoy them. (2008, paperback, 32 pages) Availability: Usually ships in 2-3 business days.
