The Travel Adventures of PJ Mouse in Canada

Book Description for The Travel Adventures of PJ Mouse in Canada (BOOK ONE):

PJ Mouse, an adorable little stuffed animal, was lost and alone until young Emily heard his cries for help. Now, along with his new family, PJ gets to travel the world-discovering exciting new places and people along the way!
Come join PJ on his first adventure across Canada as he hikes on a glacier in the Rockies, finds a salt lake in the prairies, and walks on the ocean floor in Nova Scotia.

My review:  This book is utterly adorable.  I really contemplated buying PJ mouse for myself.  I think any book that shows travel and the world to a child is a great thing.

The entire adventure with PJ made me feel like I was in Canada traveling with him.  He gets to hike on a glacier how cool is that?

This book can give you a bit of nostalgia if you were like me you had that one stuffed animal you just adored and took with you every where.  This book made me think of those travels with my parents where I took my little stuffed animal.  It is a shame they don’t come alive toy story style.

This book is utterly adorable the illustrations are fantastic.  I would buy this for any child in my life.

The Travel Adventures of PJ Mouse in Queensland

Book Description for The Travel Adventures of PJ Mouse in Queensland (BOOK TWO):

PJ Mouse, an adorable little stuffed animal, was lost and alone until young Emily heard his cries for help. Now, along with his new family, PJ gets to travel the world – discovering exciting new places, people, and animals along the way!

​Come join PJ on this, his second adventure, along the coast of Queensland, as he snorkels at the Great Barrier Reef, chats with a Loggerhead turtle in the midst of a great undertaking, and explores the tropical rainforest- until he has to be rescued by one of the local friendly wildlife.

My Review:  PJ Mouse is back and he is just as adorable as the first book.   This time he is in Australia.  This is one lucky mouse, he gets to go all through Australia (Queensland) he gets to see new people & animals and the Great Barrier Reef.  (I am so jealous of this stuffed mouse)

He is still adorable, lovable and I would still buy this book for any kiddo I know.  This book does a great job showing the world.  Check out his photo below, you know you want a PJ Mouse for yourself.

I would personally buy both these books together.  The lovable mouse, the fantastic illustrations and the education in the book make this an amazing book!

Sugarbabe: The Controversial Real Story of a Woman in Search of a Sugar Daddy By Holly Hill

Summary: “Attractive, professional, well-spoken, well-dressed 35-year-old woman seeks sugar daddy. I live in Darlinghurst on a 17th floor unit with fantastic skyline views to the harbor. The unit also features very discreet and secure undercover guest parking. I am looking for exclusivity so will (theoretically) be available to you 24 x 7. I am single and don’t have any children. I am also a fabulous cook and can provide gourmet meals should you require them. I am a qualified psychologist so I make an excellent listener, and I have a great love of conversation. I have also worked for many years in public relations so am a clever, charming companion in just about any situation. I love sex. I will require a generous weekly allowance in return for all of the above.”

Holly Hill (pseudonym) gave up her job at the behest of her wealthy boyfriend—and then found herself dumped and penniless. After spending six weeks in bed pining for her lost love, she was encouraged by a friend to be “open-minded” about her career choices—and ended up placing an online ad for a sugar daddy. She received an almost overwhelming response from all sorts of men, but most of them were married men whose wives had lost interest in sex. As Holly interviewed the men and settled on a candidate, she decided to record what happened next. Those almost-daily observations became a journal documenting Holly’s extraordinary experiences—not just the men she meets, but the things she finds out about marriages, in particular, and what men need from them. Sugarbabe is her real-life account of the emails, meetings, employment of and interactions with the applicants for the role, and the five men she eventually chooses (not all at the same time!). It is by turns funny, enlightening, challenging and thought-provoking.
