A nursery rhyme for a crazy year of election

Petocracy (2016) Buy now in print or ebook.

Inspired by watching the animals in our house – and the lunacy of national politics – Petocracy is a kid’s book about border security, police violence, and the one percent, plus kibbles.

The print version is also a coloring book, for working out those anxieties.

An excerpt:

The cat tree and the tunnels remained
As Sir Wallace Pounce loudly proclaimed
The catizens were all going to be detained,
Only dogs were permitted in the land her majesty reigned.

One item remained safe from his princely conquest,
The throne of Her Emminence, the royal princess–
For while she lay nightly getting her rest,
She sent Sir Wallace on patrol for catizens to arrest.
