The Lovereading4Kids comment

June 2016 Book of the Month Though it’s primarily aimed at dogs, humans too – particularly those who share their home with a canine companion – will find lots to inform and entertain them in Maggie Mayhem’s comprehensive guide. Maggie, a border terrier, lives with two humans – Kim Sears and her husband – and clearly has their care down to a fine art. In her debut book, she shares a wealth of tips on such things as grooming and hygiene, nutrition – she’s very good on how to get your human to share food with you – and the all-important communication (‘no’ she explains, is a term of encouragement). Upbeat and positive, Maggie never forgets that man is dog’s best friend, particularly when Man has a pocket full of biscuits. With stylish illustrations throughout, this is an ideal gift for dog or human. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

How to Look After Your Human by Kim Sears

There are plenty of guides out there for humans about training their dogs - as if humans have ever been the ones in charge. One dog has at last agreed to share the insights gained through years of hard experience: Maggie Mayhem has trained some of the world's most stubborn humans (including her co-author Kim Sears), and so there is no better canine to explain the complexities of human behaviour and guide you through the ownership journey.

How to Look After Your Human will include: - - tips and techniques on everything from choosing the right human for you, to managing their diet and instilling a mutually beneficial exercise regime - - a guide to deciphering human language, including which words you should be paying attention to (very few) and those you should ignore entirely (rather a lot) - - advice on the vexed issues of fancy dress (canine) and personal hygiene (human.

About the Author

Kim Sears

MAGGIE MAYHEM lives in the countryside with her brother and two humans. She has been training humans since puppyhood. When she's not dispensing valuable life advice to her thousands of adoring fans on Twitter, Maggie likes to pick fights and chase things. How to Look After Your Human is her first book. KIM SEARS lives in Surrey with her husband and two dogs. When she's not working on a painting or chasing a tearaway terrier through the woods, she enjoys Classic FM, chocolate biscuits and copious amounts of Jilly Cooper. How To Look After Your Human is the first book a dog has ever asked her to type up. HELEN HANCOCKS is a cat person. Her best-selling debut Penguin in Peril was about cats, despite the title; her subsequent two picture books WILLIAM AND THE MISSING MASTERPIECE and WILLIAM HEADS TO HOLLYWOOD are also about cats. This is her first book not about cats - any cats found in the pages of How To Look After Your Human were certainly not hidden there by her.
