"An Undeniably Fun, Tail Wagging Romp. A Must Read." --Booklife Prize

  

Gracie, a snobby royal Russian Wolfhound (Borzoi) show dog, expects her noble puppies to follow in her pawprints of being a pampered princess. Daughter Carnegie has inherited Gracie's aristocratic attitude and assumes she'll be pick of the litter. When the coveted title goes to her humble but perfect sister, Madison, she's resentful and scoffs at being a silly show dog.


Carnegie sets her sights on becoming a famous "woof hunter" and living as royalty in the Imperial Palace. The only tiny problem is how to get from her home in New York, all the way to Russia on her own.


Madison is torn by loyalty to her owner-who expects her to carry on their kennel's legacy of Grand Champion show dogs-to Anastasia, the young girl who holds her heart-and to her scheming sister, Carnegie, who needs her to carry out her royalty-obsessed plans.


Will fame and royalty-or love and loyalty win out? Middle grade children and dog lovers of all ages will be captivated by this funny, fanciful, and heartwarming adventure.


The character illustrations (including Carnegie on the book cover) are by Chanel "Dezzoi" Scott. DreamWorks Animation and Disney voice talent, Stephen Kearin, brilliantly narrates and performs all 36 characters in this novel's extraordinary audiobook

About the author

J. G. EASTMAN loves dogs. Not those snarly, jump-up-and-bite-you-on-the-elbow sort--but most. She adores dog stories--but can't bear the nobody-wants-the-dog scenes that must be endured before the happy ending. She also had a captivating story to tell that is based on real and heartfelt events. So, she wrote LONG NOSE LEGACY, a fictional novel (without the unbearable scenes) about the good sort of dogs and the people who cherish them.


She is a designer, art director, media and theatre producer, member of the Society of Children's Books Writers and Illustrators, the Dog Writers Association of America, Audio Publishers Association, and Independent Book Publishers Association. She lives on the California coast with her husband and their two show Borzoi, who are related to Carnegie and Madison who inspired LONG NOSE LEGACY.

A Globe and Mail "Best Book of the Year"

Two worlds collide when a mermaid and human man meet, plunging readers into a vast underwater realm brimming with adventure and intrigue.

The mermaid’s scales were bronze, and they shimmered like hundreds of pennies arranged close together. Her immense blue-green eyes gave a look of fragility to her face, yet he found her eyes unsettling. She was leaning against a thirty-foot-long shark, which emerged from behind her and opened its mouth to reveal a great big cavern lined with hundreds of teeth—a black tunnel ready to swallow him.

Coralline is a mermaid who is engaged to the merman of her dreams. But when an oil spill wreaks havoc on her idyllic village life, her little brother falls gravely ill. Desperate to save him, she embarks on a quest to find a legendary elixir made of starlight.

Izar, a human man, is on the cusp of an invention that will enable him to mine the depths of the ocean. His discovery will soon make him the richest man on earth—while threatening merpeople with extinction. But then, suddenly, Izar finds himself transformed into a merman and caught in a web of betrayal and intrigue. Meeting Coralline in the ocean, he decides to join her on her quest for the elixir, hoping it will turn him human again.

The quest pushes Coralline and Izar together, even though their worlds are at odds. Their pasts threaten to tear them apart, while a growing attraction adds to the danger. Ultimately, each of them faces an impossible choice. Should Coralline leave her fiancé for a man who might betray her? And Izar has a dark secret of his own—one that could cause him to lose Coralline forever.

Magnificent and moving, set against a breathtaking ocean landscape, The Oyster Thief is a richly imagined odyssey destined to become a classic.
