You might have to watch a TV commercial before this news bit, but it’s a nice story (hat tip – Wose). Can’t help thinking of Chet in The Sound and The Furry, although he and Zuko are rather different.

Beginnings (Not)

First, many thanks to anyone leaving nice reviews on Amazon, as I see has happened from yesterday’s comments. Normally on Sunday we do beginnings, taking a look at the start of a Peter Abrahams novel, including those written under the Spencer Quinn moniker™. But I’ve noticed that there’s a whole thing going on of readers who’ve already bought It’s A Wonderful Woof, the Chet and Bernie Christmas novel that came out this week, waiting till closer to Christmas Day to actually read it. That reminded me of this passage from the book:

“Merry Christmas,” Johanna said. She slid the present across the table. “I think it’s the kind you like.”

“The kind of what?”

“Open it and see. I won’t tell Santa.”

“Who will you tell?” Bernie said.

“Huh?” said Johanna. “I just meant you don’t have to wait for Christmas Day.”

“What if I like waiting for Christmas Day?”

“Then by all means.”

So – we were opening the present? Not opening? I had no idea, but Bernie ended up opening, which was what I’d have done if I’d been Bernie. Whoa! What a thought! I wasn’t sure I was comfortable with it. What if I was Bernie and … and he was Chet! I knew one thing for sure. I’d give him a treat this very second.
