Gulliver leads the cushiest life imaginable. His master, a well-to-do professor, gives him everything a Lhasa apso could possibly want: a fashionable Manhattan address, a fancy collar, classical music, premium dog food. They even spend their summers in Paris! But it's in Paris that his master, Professor Rattigan, falls in love with a woman who turns out to be allergic to long-haired dogs. Forced to choose between his prospective wife and his beloved pet, Professor Rattigan sadly gives Gulliver up?to his doorman, Carlos Montoya. And so it is that the refined, purebred Lhasa finds himself in a cramped, ramshackle household in Queens, along with a family of raucous human beings and three deplorable mutts. Once the initial shock and horror wear off, Gulliver forms a plan to escape his wretched situation. The plan goes awry. But just as Gulliver begins to make a grudging peace with his new reality, the Montoyas take him along for a day at the beach, where he gets swept up in a harrowing new adventure. Only after crossing an ocean and learning a thing or two about what's really important in life does Gulliver find his true home.

Editorial Reviews

MEAN MARGARETPictures by Jon AgeeFinalist for the National Book Award“Tor Seidler writes in the great tradition of Kenneth Grahame, Walter R. Brooks, and E. B. White, creating worlds where friendship matters, animals talk, and little girls who listen–even ones as mean as Margaret–can learn a life-changing lot about loving-kindness.”–MICHAEL CART, BooklistTHE WAINSCOTT WEASELPictures by Fred MarcellinoAn ALA Notable Children's Book“It's just possible that not since a spider named Charlotte saved a pig named Wilbur has there been a more tender tale of interspecies love and devotion. Tor Seidler infuses his text with warmth, subtlety, and humor.”–The New York Times Book ReviewA RAT'S TALEPictures by Fred MarcellinoA Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year“Like Charlotte's Web or The Wind in the Willows, Tor Seidler's delightful new book, A Rat's Tale, is suffused with humor, pathos, and moral beauty.”–The Washington Post Book World
