Overview

Furry Logic is a charming little book with a big heart and sly humor. Exquisitely detailed watercolor paintings depicting animals caught up in the joy and drudgery of life are paired with old adages given a new spin for our times. Tender thoughts such as, "Smile first thing in the morning--get it over with," "If you don't agree with me--it means you haven't been listening," and "You'll always be my best friend--you know too much" go a long way toward banishing the blahs and shaking off the blues. Designer and illustrator Jane Seabrook's forty universally appealing paintings of birds, bears, penguins, chipmunks, frogs, baboons, and more are all rendered in delicate and biologically accurate detail.
 
Furry Logic speaks to the human condition in a way we can all relate to and feel good about. It's a humorous collection of quotes and drawings that turns life's little challenges into opportunities for laughter.

    There is nothing quite so healing as a smile.

    I enjoyed this endearing little book. I really believe reading books like Furry Logic - funny, illustrated books - can help people laugh away their troubles. There is nothing quite so healing as a smile.

    Please, Ma'am, is there more?

    My mother's best friend sent her this at Xmas and it became the hilarious focal point of the day. As far as I can see, everyone needs a copy of this. The art and text are fabulous - could be framed! Any idea when the next book will be coming out?

    Furry Logic Roars!

    I bought this book at my childrens' book fair at school a couple of weeks ago. It got passed around at work and misplaced. I'm already out to buy a new one! It is so great! It makes you smile! I knew I had to have it when I opened it and read, 'There's no day so bad that it can't be fixed with a nap.' So true... so true! Thanks for writing this book just for me!
