Buffalo, NY (PRWEB) January 11, 2013
Xlibris, the print-on-demand self-publishing services provider, announced today the release of Brigadoon’s Dilemma. Authored by Susan Schapiro, this picture book continues the challenging adventures of Brigadoon, a proud, but often misunderstood, Border Collie.
Given the chance to bark, run around in circles, and shepherd his charges to safety, Brigadoon is thrilled to chase geese at Mossy Oaks Golf Club. With the greens keeper Mr. Friendly he is comfortable, but he has a problem. Mr. Friendly who calls him wonderful and tough, descriptions he knows well and loves. But Mr. Friendly always adds another label, a word called sweet. Since Brigadoon knows very little about sweet, he has no idea whether he should like being described that way. Before he can make up his mind, he must first solve the problem of defining sweet. In ignorance, he thinks that he would rather just be tough. His first effort to understand sweet unfortunately fails to give him any real insight. After a few failures to solve his problem, he rejects sweet and sets out to learn how to become as tough as Samson, the toughest dog on the block.
Readers will find if a “sweet” solution can give Brigadoon an important head start in learning an effective thinking – the kind of thinking that helps to solve problems – as the story unfolds in Brigadoon’s Dilemma.
