The Dog Whisperer
Author: Graeme Sims
Publisher: Hachette UK
Reverend Graeme Sims's faithful pack follow his every command as if they can read his mind. But their willingness is down to an enlightened training method using his technique of dog whispering, which is based on the idea of treating the dogs as partners, not as servants, and human and dog learning to understand each other. This detailed, step-by-step instruction book shows you how to communicate properly with your dog, including guidelines on: how to choose the right breed of dog for you (or whether you're the right owner for a dog); how and when to use different commands; how to build a bond of trust; how to overcome problems with specific sections on the problem dog, the rescue dog, the nervous dog and the aggressive dog. THE DOG WHISPERER is a definitive guide to effective dog training for dog-owners and dog-lovers everywhere.
Le comiche avventure di una ragazzina speciale (l'amicizia, la prima cotta, il coraggio, la paura) e di Uk, il "fanta-amico", lare domestico e portafortuna dalle sorprendenti risorse, nonostante il ridicolo aspetto tra il famoso Fantozzi di Paolo Villaggio e uno spaesato reperto. Nel corso di un'estate apparentemente normale, "nell'incendio di un tramonto strafìco", la PRODIGIOSA ALLEANZA di Cate, Elio e Chiarastella contro Hypnosia, alias la Regina del Male, alias Gorgona Medusa... Catapultata in un susseguirsi di colpi di scena e incredibili spiazzamenti di SPAZIO e di TEMPO (ad es. il viaggio dei due protagonisti nel principesco PASSATO e la strabiliante lettera dal FUTURO), Cate considera tra sé e sé: 'Tutto vortica, dentro e fuori di me; non so più dove mi trovo, né in quale quando, né con chi... NON SO NEMMENO PIU' CHI SONO IO!' Maria Teresa Codovilli ha pubblicato ad oggi 11 libri di poesia, con importanti consensi critici, e una trentina di video in YouTube. Il romanzo Il mistero del Gufo Orbo pubblicato da Maremmi Editori, è stato selezionato tra i semifinalisti al 54esimo Premio Bancarellino

"Within a day of receiving this book, I had consumed it... Absorbing, moving, and compulsively readable."—Lydia Davis In this affectionate, heart-warming chronicle, Rosamund Young distills a lifetime of organic farming wisdom, describing the surprising personalities of her cows and other animals At her famous Kite's Nest Farm in Worcestershire, England, the cows (as well as sheep, hens, and pigs) all roam free. They make their own choices about rearing, grazing, and housing. Left to be themselves, the cows exhibit temperaments and interests as diverse as our own. "Fat Hat" prefers men to women; "Chippy Minton" refuses to sleep with muddy legs and always reports to the barn for grooming before bed; "Jake" has a thing for sniffing the carbon monoxide fumes of the Land Rover exhaust pipe; and "Gemima" greets all humans with an angry shake of the head and is fiercely independent. An organic farmer for decades, Young has an unaffected and homely voice. Her prose brims with genuine devotion to the wellbeing of animals. Most of us never apprehend the various inner lives animals possess, least of all those that we might eat. But Young has spent countless hours observing how these creatures love, play games, and form life-long friendships. She imparts hard-won wisdom about the both moral and real-world benefits of organic farming. (If preserving the dignity of animals isn't a good enough reason for you, consider how badly factory farming stunts the growth of animals, producing unhealthy and tasteless food.) This gorgeously-illustrated book, which includes an original introduction by the legendary British playwright Alan Bennett, is the summation of a life's work, and a delightful and moving tribute to the deep richness of animal sentience.
After the best-seller The End is My Beginning, co-authored with his father Tixiano Terzani, the long-awaited Folco Terzani’s comeback with a spiritual fable of nature, men and God. This spiritual fable intends to make us reflect on our own life, the things we put our security in, the values we live by, the dreams we have set aside as wishful thinking. It makes us look at the community around us, the connections we have. Through the life of a dog who’s left on the side of the road, abandoned by his owner. He then comes across a wolf, that tells him to go on a journey to find his true identity and who his creator really is. He then meets a pack of wolves, where he learns about their ways, there values through the individual characters, who are also on a journey to discover their creator. This is a parable that encourages mindfulness, purpose and spiritual searching and spiritual formation.

Iris Grace is a beautiful little girl who, from a very young age, barely communicated, avoided social interaction with other people, and rarely smiled. From both before her diagnosis of autism and after, she seemed trapped in her own world, unable to connect with those around her. One day, her mother brought home a Maine Coon kitten for Iris, even though cats aren’t typically thought of as therapy pets. Thula, named after one of Iris’s favorite African lullabies and meaning ?peace” in Zulu, immediately bonded with Iris. Thula knew right away how to assuage Iris when she became overstimulated; when to intervene when Iris became overwhelmed; and how to provide distraction when Iris started heading toward a meltdown. Whether exploring, playing, sleeping, or taking a bath with Iris or accompanying the family on a bike ride, Thula became so much more than a therapy cat. With Thula’s safe companionship, Iris began to talk and interact with her family. This heartwarming story is illustrated with sixty of Iris’s gorgeous impressionistic paintings, works of art that have allowed her to express herself since the age of three. A gifted artist, Iris sees the natural world in a profoundly vivid and visceral way. With Thula by her side, she’ll sit and paint for hours, and the results are stunning. Inspiring and touching, Iris Grace follows the struggles and triumphs of a family?and a miracle cat?as they learn to connect with an amazing child.
