Postcards from the Pug Bus
by Phil Maggitti
The continuing misadventures of one man and his pugs, is now available from Cedar Tree Books.
As the only book ever written by someone who was actually raised by pugs, Postcards from the Pug Bus reflects mother wit, insight, and straight-from-the-withers thinking gained from that experience. The Rub Bus picks up where the training manuals leave off—or never bother to go.
Postcards follows its author, Phil Maggitti, from the day that God speaks with him at a timber race to the day that Phil decides to write his own obituary. In between, Phil and his wife Mary Ann, and their dogs take the low road from their home in southeastern Pennsylvania to an additional twenty-eight chapter worth of merriment, mishap and occasional mayhem, racking up more laughs per gallon than any vehicle in their class.
Sounding like "Best in Show" meets "The Simpsons", this freewheeling joyride of a book is filled with:
·unforgettable pugs-"Hans, to put it bluntly, could be obnoxious."
·unforgettable experiences-"The chase reminded me of the villagers running Frankenstein out of town."
· and just plain unforgettable moments-"As I was wondering what the woman was planning to do with the contents of the cup, she whipped out a turkey baster from the cabinet drawer."
This book is FUNNY, controversial, entertaining, instructive, inspiring, occasionally sad and always real. Brimming with mischevious word play, Postcards is written with cheek placed firmly in tongue and with the unwavering belief that if life sends you iron-willed dogs, you might as well make irony.
