New Book is Here! A Dog by any Other Name is Not the Same

About the Book

What makes a dog special? Is it their breed? Is it their color? Could it be their personality? Or maybe it’s what they love to do? Maybe it’s time to ask our four-legged friends, and see what they have to say for themselves. In his next children’s picture book, “A Dog By Any Other Name is Not the Same,” author J.G. Piper takes a look at what makes each dog unique. Each dog is a different breed, lives in a different place, and offers a different perspective. They tell their stories in captivating rhyme and rhythm, and every page is stunningly illustrated by internationally-known artist, Linda Apple. Readers of all ages will discover what our furry storytellers have to say about their place in the world. And as you get to know each dog, you’ll find a way to celebrate your own unique presence in life.

From the Author

Do you believe there should be more JOY, CONNECTION and UNDERSTANDING in the world?

If you do, I think you’ll love my books! This belief is what drives my passion for creating Children’s Books!

My books build understanding and loving connections with the use of imaginative characters. I strive to make my books valuable for both children and adults, books that speak to the hearts of our children, as well as, the child in every adult. I don’t find it difficult to speak to both, we’re all people, little and big.

What you can expect from reading my books, first and foremost, is it’s going to be fun! My number one objective is to weave fun, joy and happiness into the stories. A child’s smile and laughter are so precious. It’s a gift to the world and if I can play a little part in that, it fills my heart!

Secondly, you can expect stories that will evoke curiosity and wonder. These stories also provide insightful situations that can spark meaningful conversations with your little listener. Simple life lessons and concepts like love, acceptance, friendship, self esteem, kindness, diversity and much more. read more...

From the Illustrator

As a child I dreamed of working for Disney. But as I got older and entered college, influences steered me down the path of fine arts. That dream has definitely stayed with me and has influenced my artwork over the years. Many of my pieces have an innocent and whimsical quality to them and people throughout my life have told me I should have been a children's book illustrator. I've always had an interest in illustrating a picture book but never sought out a writer or felt comfortable writing it myself. I'm delighted to have the chance to collaborate with my son and illustrate his first two children's books. read more...
