Charlie the Ranch Dog hardcover book by Ree Drummond. 40 pages. Ages 4 to He's a ranch dog. Breakfast is his life, especially when bacon is involved. Charlie has dangly ears, floppy skin, and big fat paws. And he loves living in the country. Full color.
The Chase, by Clive Cussler. First book in the Isaac Bell series. Isaac Bell is a private detective in early century America. I read the first five books in the series over about two months, and really enjoyed them. They are a fast, light, read.
