Dr. Kimberly Brown
"As a veterinarian and mother, I loved the book Lady!! Children of all ages will love this book, and it serves to educate adults on the emotional benefits of pet therapy."
Donna Ward
"A heart-felt story about the positive benefits pets can provide for their human friends. I’d recommend this book for all ages."
Katherine Laurence
"One Incredible Dog! Lady is a wonderful learning tool for the elementary classroom. It shows actual examples of the role that therapy dogs have in the healing process. Lady is one super dog!"
Helene Skopek
"[This] book is a huge hit with the three children who are reading to my dogs. I have one boy who is reading 2 grade levels below where he should be for his age. He is sticking with the book even though it is at least one grade above where he is reading at this time. He is sounding out the words because it tells him ‘more about a therapy dog’. He could not wait to show his mother the book. Thank you for offering a book that lets children know what therapy dogs do and how they get to be therapy dogs."
Kathy Trostle
"One Incredible Dog! Lady gave me a slight chill when I read it....Lady and her owners, Kathy and Les, are regular volunteers at our center. Lady has brightened many days for veterans served here. I hope this book will encourage more people to provide training for their pets, and share the joy of pet therapy with others."
Mary E. Stevenson
"Please accept my deepest admiration for your acknowledgment and endorsement of therapy animals. One Incredible Dog! Lady …pays homage to all the truly incredible gently souls (and their wonderful owners/trainers) who bring comfort and a sense of ‘home’ to those in need. Kathy Miller and Lady have brightened so many lives here at our long-term care facility; both residents and employees reap the benefits of countless hours of training and human/canine bonding. Your book is wonderfully written, beautifully illustrated and is both appealing and refreshing. At a time when our country needs to witness acts of kindness and courage, you have gifted us with a story which encompasses both."

Meet the Author

Chris Williams was born in Bristol, PA and grew up in nearby Levittown, PA. Currently residing in York County PA with his wife and son, Chris has authored several children’s eBooks including Walter the Trolley, Eddie’s Fabulous Fables and The Real Adventures of Glip and Ha (all published by London Circle Publishing) and numerous published short stories. A broadcast veteran since 1975, Chris presently works full-time as an announcer at WRBS-FM in Baltimore, MD. His inspiration for writing One Incredible Dog! Lady came after 9-11, when he learned about the courageous deeds Therapy Dogs did to bring comfort and healing to those involved in the attack and clean up. Networking locally, he met a nursing assistant, Kathy Miller and her Therapy Dog Lady. After spending some time with Kathy and Lady, Chris sat down and wrote One Incredible Dog!, the first of many books to document for children ages 4-8 a day in the life of working dogs. Chris is a life-long Philadelphia Phillies fan and enjoys classic film comedies like Laurel & Hardy, The Marx Brothers and W.C. Fields.
