Ruthie is a year older than Zoo M. Slicky. She acts like she's a lot older, and when she's not busy ignoring him, she's very good at annoying him. But she is Zoo's sister, after all, and is pretty good in a pinch.

Introducing Stella

Stella Livret can usually be found in the school Library. It's her favorite place to research, and nobody bugs her there. She tends to disapprove of Zoo and his antics, but secretly kind-of likes him. Zoo is more than a little intimidated by her- she's a braniac! And she certainly won't stand for being called 'Livret'.

But he will come to appreciate her more than you can imagine.  

And she has a dog who does tricks.

Introducing Vinyl

Despite the fact that Alexandra Vinyl is a girl (or more precisely because of it) Zoo M. Slicky is dependent on her help in the tasks that lie ahead. You may judge her to be taller than Zoo (in fact she is) but in his eyes they pretty much measure up the same.

Alexandra Vinyl

Zoo M. Slicky has known Alexandra Vinyl most of his life. She lives a few houses away from Zoo, and is kind of bossy. They used to share a sandbox when they were little kids (that's how he knows she's a pain in the butt). He calls her Vinyl of course.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is always spent at Grandmother's. Zoo M. Slicky is forced to dress up in suit and tie. Yeesh. And Grandmother has too many rules to enjoy the holidays, but he does get to hang out with his mischievous cousins...who have been known to dangle him off the balcony by his ankles. We hope your holiday is a little less adventurous, and full of family of all kinds.

Introducing Zoo M. Slicky

What better way to introduce characters than by examining their...stature? 

We're presenting a series of height comparisons between Zoo and his friends, starting here with Eddie Orvitch.

How tall someone is really isn't all that important to Zoo, but he knows how essential it is for most kids (they need to know how you measure up) so here goes...

Halloween

Halloween

Cyril is a good sport, but really, he wants you to know: Dogs hate being stuffed into costumes. 

But we must say, this is the perfect costume for a very good bad-dog.

Cyril

Hello. I'm Cyril, a distinguished rescue dog. No one's sure what kind of mutt I am, but like as not, I may have a bit of poodle in my DNA.

Some people actually call me: Cyril the Bearded Jack-Roodle...  Others insist on miniature LabraDoodle (how dull).

At any rate, I finally managed to be charming enough to be taken home, and enjoy sporting a bow-tie.

Stamped!

The engineer's stamp of approval. At last it's here. Thanks to Treo Architects and  L&D Construction's Sarah Senderhauf (Sales Manager, but so much more), the plans for our new studio are in the City of Denver's hands! Waiting for permits with bated breath. Well not too bated, as only time will tell when mayhem and destruction begins! Stay tuned.

Beta readers are poring over the manuscript for The Freakish Temper of Zoo M. Slicky, making suggestions, pointing out conflicts, and laughing with the crazy antics and trials of Zoo M. Slicky.

In particular, the insights of two readers—thanks Grace and Shui!— have led to the addition of a completely different first chapter. Sometimes to begin in the middle of a muddle isn't the place to begin... or to start without an introduction is to launch into confusion? At any rate, the story now commences in a whole new way, with a wild car ride to boot!
