For him:

You're My Guy Because...

by Patricia Storms


Hardcover, 6 by 6 inches, 65 pp.


This tells your man why your pulse picks up when he's around.

A century and a half ago, Elizabeth Barrett Browning started a poem, to Robert Browning, with the now-famous words:

How do I love thee?

Let me count the ways...

That was then. This book is now.

This small book of many witty reasons in winning words with amusing illustrations reveals how true affection is built from little things that mean a lot to those who've shared them. So go aheadómake his day.

Pat Storms, an illustrator for leading magazines in both the U.S. and Canada, is based in Toronto.

For her:

You're My Women Because...

by Patrick J. Murphy


Hardcover, 6 by 6 inches, 64 pp.


You're my woman because...'re there when I need you.'re full of surprises.'re so hot.

This is a book for a man to give to a special someone in his life. It says in so many ways and in just as many wry paintings that the small stuff is sometimes big.

Original and a bit wild, it has an artfully simple message: I'm happy we connected. Bring her flowers if you will, but give her this little book to treasure.


Pat Murphy, who both speaks and draws with an Irish lilt, is based in Belfast.





Never Kiss a Frog
A Girl's Guide to Creatures from the Dating Swamp

by Marilyn Anderson
Paperback $14

Single women canít afford to believe in fairy tales. Frogs donít turn into princesómen donít changeóno matter how tenderly theyíre handled. Some are adept at hiding their reptilian views while others seem oblivious to their inner slime. Even an astute, Sex-and-The-City type of gal can be fooled. Thatís why every lady hoping for a princely mate needs Never Kiss a Frog.

Marilyn Andersonís funny, illustrated guide reveals frogs and toads in their many guises. The author hilariously plumbs the romantic misadventures of herself and her friends for the early (but overlooked) signs that a plausible Mr. Right is Mr. Wrong. Armed with Never Kiss a Frog, a gal can tell who should be tossed back into the pond and who might be a keeper.
