As Adam Rex knelt before the poster-sized paper to sketch four legs, a tail, body, neck and some stripes, his audience of first- through fourth-graders at Cerritos Elementary School wiggled and squirmed. Their hands shot up and proclaimed the drawing a zebra, tyrannosaurus rex and giraffe when the children’s book illustrator asked for animals. He finished the cartoon in less than a minute, capping off the sketch with a square Barney-style T-Rex head. Children’s book author Jon Scieszka took the microphone and polled students on what to name the never-before-seen animal.

Michael Lent got the idea for his humorous holiday book, “Christmas Letters From Hell — All The News We Hate from the People We Love,” from hard-earned experience. The Glendale screenwriter-producer and his family sit down at the dinner table each yuletide season and critique Christmas letters they’ve received from family and friends. The majority are very funny, Lent said. “We call them letters you love to hate,” he said. “We divide them up at the dinner table and each of us, my wife, two kids and mother-in-law, read them and decide which is the best.

At 27 pounds, 9-year-old Felix might be the heaviest cat in Glendale, and he's a rising star in his own right. Felix's personality inspired his owner, Glendale resident Frans Vischer, to write and illustrate the children's book “Fuddles” based on him. Adopted as a kitten, Felix has always been a big cat, Vischer said. He could never manage to jump the family's backyard fence. He habitually digs into his full allotment of food before the Vischer family leaves the house for vacation.

In January 1969, when Wendy Lawless and her sister were living in New York's famed Dakota building, their mother swallowed a bottle of pills and called her husband - their stepfather - at his hotel to say goodbye. What followed was a troop of firemen entering their apartment building and breaking down the door to her mother's bedroom with axes in an effort to revive her, as Lawless and her sister watched. This is just one of the many fascinating stories from Lawless' new book, "Chanel Bonfire," a charming and heartfelt memoir chronicling her childhood with her unstable New York socialite mother, Georgann Rea. Rea is described as a "real-life Holly Golightly, who constantly reinvents herself as she trades up from trailer park to penthouse," and in the process suffers from breakdowns and suicide attempts while her two daughters grapple with the aftermath.
