Exciting books from McNeil & Richards:
everything from the Brains Bowl
to candidates, cats and cavepeople
New books from McNeil & Richards take
the reader into worlds where Brains is more popular than football, reporters
try to prove a candidate died sixteen years ago, cats tell how life looks
to them, and cavepeople invent wondrous things such as the wheel, elections
and fast food restaurants.
Running through all the books is a strong
current of humor.
Brains, by Daniel Breeze, follows the Chicago
Philosophers, a ragtag team of pseudo-intellectuals, as they struggle
to reach the biggest game of all -- the Brains Bowl.
When pro football slips in popularity, the
new sport of Brains captures the imagination of Americans. The Phils and
their Ahab-like coach might win the championship ... if they don’t
kill each other first.
In John Westin’s new thriller, The
Perfect Candidate, Harry Jerome seems to be the ideal politician -- handsome,
sophisticated, intelligent. There’s only one little problem ...
“Harry Jerome died sixteen years
That’s the problem.
Two reporters race to uncover the truth
about the mysterious Jerome before voters elect him their next governor.
Three Cat Tales features three feisty felines
who lived with a southern Illinois couple. The book is in three parts:
a Christmas story titled “Smokey and Boomer” and two short
memoirs, “Boomer’s Story” followed by “And Along
In his memoir, Boomer offers advice:
If you release a burst of stomach gas, pretend
the old man did it.
Treat cats well, don’t treat them
like crazy relatives. Or dogs.
People like receiving greeting cards with
pictures of cats on them. Send them on Mother’s Day, Father’s
Day, and on special occasions like “Hi, Mama -- We’re sorry
we had to put you in a home.”
Boomer’s thoughts on the meaning of
life: “I know why I am here. I just don’t know why you are
Love in the Caves, by Jack Gilhooly, is
about a caveman named I Think and his relatives and pals. Thousands of
years ago they created a unique cave civilization, inventing everything
from the first fast food restaurant to the wheel and the first dictionary.
I Think even talked the emperor into holding the first election, which
didn’t turn out so well for the candidate who ran against the emperor
-- I Think.
