Inspector Dewey by Kristen Heimerl

Disclaimer: I was sent a copy of this children's book in order to facilitate this post.

Inspector Dewey by Kristen Heimerl and beautifully illustrated by Irene Bofill is a wonderful new children's book narrated by a cat! A talking cat! 

Dewey is a large, fluffy and very lovable feline who lives a mostly peaceful life in a big green house with his family: Thumper, Lily and Anna, their human. Mostly peaceful, because one night a bad guy showed up.

Inspector Dewey is based on a true story! Two years ago an intruder stumbled into her life and Kristen Heimerl turned the unusual event into the plot for her very first book.

Heimerl says: "this book is meaningful to me in so many ways - not least of which is the opportunity to influence an new generation of readers and learners. Picture books transformed my life - they showed me the beauty of illustration and the power of language."

To find out how this adventure turns out you'll have to read the book!

Fifty percent of the profits from the sale of this book will fund veterinary care for pets whose families are in financial need, so that the animals can remain in their homes and out of the shelter system.

Dust Off Your Shelfies #netflix #streamteam September 2015

Disclaimer: As a Netflix Stream Team member I received something of value for sharing this post with you.

Just a little over two years ago, we kicked cable TV to the curb and never looked back. Well . . . sort of. We don't get the very best TV reception here in the boonies and every once in a while when the moon is just right, you can hear Whynot howling about missing a football game. But I stand firm and remind him of all the money we're saving and we're good for another week.

We're both working full time jobs with unusual schedules, so that very infrequent day off together is reserved for doing something fun!

That's where the beauty of Netflix comes in!

In case you missed a few episodes - or maybe full seasons - of great shows, now is the time to dust off your shelfies. 

What’s a shelfie you ask? We all have them – they’re the shows you’ve been wanting to watch but they’ve been sitting on the virtual shelf because . . . well, because who has the time? 

With full-blown fall premiere season upon us you need to know:

Did Olivia kick Fitz to the curb on Scandal? 
Who’s rocking the break room on Grey’s Anatomy? 
Just how long is Rick’s beard now on The Walking Dead?

Need some shelfie suggestions? Check out the great library of fall shows you can stream this month on Netflix.
