Sandra Boynton is one of my favorite children’s artist/writers. Her books are whimsical, funny and loved by all ages. Her first was Moo, Baa, La La La!  Sandra Boynton’s new book – Here, George – caught my attention because she has collaborated with The New Yorker cartoon illustrator George Booth. Using the dog George Booth drew for her, Boynton turned it into one of her delicious board books. It tells the story of a dog who appears to be just a large and lazy dog, but has a secret life his owners know nothing about. This charming book is great for young children, young grandchildren and adults with a silly sense of humor. $7.99.

Rothy’s has a new style shoe – loafers. The loafer style comes in eight new colors and patterns and all are gorgeous. They are even more comfortable than the other Rothy’s (and that is high praise!) as they come further back around the ball of your foot. $165 a pair.
