This article, entitled "Charlie and the New Baby," is presented by HarperCollins Children’s Group.
There’s nothing that Charlie loves more than naps and bacon, but when he’s not sleeping or eating, he’s busy being King of the Ranch. Susie, Walter, Kitty Kitty, the cows, the horses, and even the mischievous little chipmunk are back—with one extra addition! When a new baby calf causes a stir among the animals, it’s up to Charlie to take charge—*yawn*—after his nap. With loveable illustrations by Diane deGroat and a delicious new recipe from Ree Drummond in the back of the book, CHARLIE AND THE NEW BABY will delight readers with its unforgettable humor and heart.
Ree Drummond began blogging in 2006 and has built www.ThePioneerWoman.com into an award-winning website that receives upwards of 20 million hits per month, where she shares recipes, showcases her photography (including pictures of Charlie!), and documents her hilarious transition from city life to ranch wife. She is the author of the New York Times bestselling books CHARLIE THE RANCH DOG, CHARLIE AND THE CHRISTMAS KITTY, THE PIONEER WOMAN COOKS, and THE PIONEER WOMAN COOKS: FOOD FROM MY FRONTIER as well as CHARLIE GOES TO SCHOOL and THE PIONEER WOMAN: BLACK HEELS TO TRACTOR WHEELS-A LOVE STORY. Ree lives on a working cattle ranch near Pawhuska, Oklahoma, with her husband, Ladd; their four kids; Charlie, their beloved basset hound; Kitty Kitty; and lots of other animals.
