January 26, 2022 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment News
Huxley and Howard, a new book by Susan K. Ewoldt, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Huxley the corgi is living the good life-that is, until the neighbor dog Howard starts to bully him. Featuring a cast of characters with unique physical characteristics, Huxley and Howard is a simple story that can spark rich discussions about individual differences.

This book is based on the author's grand pup Huxley and a friend's family dog, Howard. This story highlights the importance of showing respect to all people and teaches children to always choose to be kind. Ewoldt feels this message is especially important today because of all the discrimination, violence, and hatred in our world.
