Humorous and Informative Gift Book Ideas for Christmas
Monday, December 07, 2009  4:16:00 PM

by Marvin Ross

Two humor books from Bridgeross Communications make ideal gifts for the pet lovers and the new dads on your list. The Original Reigning Cats and Dogs and The Dysfunctional Father's Guide are reasonably priced and can make great stocking stuffers.

The Original Reigning Cats and Dogs: A Lighthearted Look at Pets and Their Owners by Marvin Ross and illustrated by David Shaw is described as "a great book to read when there is an urge to laugh or even just to bond with similar experiences with those lovable pets." (from the

. The Toronto Star said "written in a tongue-in-cheek manner, the book offers good advice".

In addition to the good advice, anecdotes and humorous illustrations, the book has a wealth of information on pet contributions to society from their influence on the English language to literary, musical and theatrical pets.

Available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble and distributed by Ingram at $12.95 US. For more information visit

For any new dads, about to become dads or even any dads who want a chuckle about what they went through and probably forgot, there is The Dysfunctional Father's Guide to Pregnancy, Birth and Babies.

The book is full of some very off beat advice specifically for dads that you won't find in any other parenting book.

Kurt A Johnson's review on Amazon said :

"I laughed my way all the way through this book, and think that it is one of the funniest books that I have seen in a long time. I highly recommend it to every man who is a survivor of labor and delivery! (I am not sure that anyone else will get it.)”

And from a mom there is this:

“This is a great book and a smooth read, if you don’t mind stopping every other page to laugh. I even had to run in to the next room at one point and say to my husband “This is so you!” So if you are looking for a great book to read this is one!”  The Dirty Shirt Blog

Also illustrated by David Shaw, some of the chapters deal with sex during pregnancy and how to avoid it, the humiliation of childbirth classes, diaper avoidance strategies, and a dysfunctional end to a dysfunctional year - the first birthday party.

Available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble and distributed by Ingram at $14.95 US
