Trade Paperback 6 X 9  140 Pages
Fully Illustrated $19.95
Juvenile Reader/Crossover to Adult Reader

A prequel to complete the highly successful first trilogy of the Cats of the C.I.A. series, Get Fred-X introduces the cats and their sidekick, Cincinnati the dancing pig, international crime fighters who work for the C.I.A., Cats In Action, secret organization run out of the White House basement by Socks. In this story, the infamous rogue owl, Fred-X, catnaps Buzzer Louis from his barn in the Hill Country of Texas and attempts to fly him to Memphis. Along the way, Buzzer escapes Fred-X’s talons and makes his way via fast freight train on the T&O (Texas & Ohio) Railroad to visit his friend Cincinnati in Ohio. Fred-X gives chase, and a series of fun and funny adventures ensue, including a visit to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland and a messy episode with a giant pumpkin.

In the end, Buzzer and Cincinnati plan a big surprise for Fred-X, just as the parcel-delivering owl tries to drop Buzzer off back at his new ranch house in the Hill Country.

Meet Buzzer Louis, retired director of operations of the C.I.A. (DO/CIA), his petulant but pretty sister, Dusty Louise, their hilarious tiny orange tabby twin siblings – Luigi Panettone Giaccomazza and Luisa Manicotti Giaccomazza, and Buzzer’s best friend and former C.I.A. contract operative, Cincinnati the dancing pig.

ISBN  1-57168-698-6 
Trade Paperback 6 X 9  204 Pages
Fully Illustrated  $19.95
For Readers Age Eight and Up – Adults, too

    Continuing the adventures of the clever and lovable cats introduced in the wildly successful Hunt for Fred-X, Buzzer Louis is summoned to Italy this time by his cousin Césare Pepperoni Giaccomazza who heads up the Rome Bureau of Interpol to once again track down that evil international catnabbing villain Fred-X. Fred-X, assisted by his European girlfriend Frieda-K and an unscrupulous cardinal from the Vatican, is stealing Italian cats to be sold into the international slave trade. Buzz heads for Italy, taking along his best friend Cincinnati the dancing pig, his pretty and petulant sister Dusty Louise and – as interpreters – the hilariously funny tiny twin pranksters Luigi Panettone Giaccomazza and Luisa Manicotti Giaccomazza. Fighting the greedy forces of evil, they enlist the aid of a band of Greek stunt cats and Il Papa – the pope, himself – in a diabolically clever plot to put an end to the owls’ criminal ways once and for all time.

    As they track Fred-X across the Trentino from Rome to Bolzano to Venezia, they learn a little Italian history and culture and learn to speak considerable Italian. You will, too, from the 750-word Italian vocabulary built into the text and in an extensive glossary/pronunciation guide.

Chick Magnates, Ayatollean Televangelist,
& A Pig Farmer’s Beef
Inside the Sometimes Hilarious World of Advertising
ISBN  1-934645-19-2 
Trade Paperback 6 X 9, 216 Pages
Vintage Photographs

    A nonfiction novel, hilariously funny and (almost) totally true, Chick Magnates, Ayatollean Televangelist, & A Pig Farmer’s Beef is the story of the amazingly off-the-wall-clever people of one of the Southwest’s more creative advertising agencies between 1973 and 1998. It’s the story of how creativity, applied when least expected and always in unorthodox fashion, overcame almost any obstacle to the agency’s and its clients successes – clients like chick magnate Bo Pilgrim, the surprisingly Muslim-like business precepts of Reverend Pat Robertson’s CBN, a larcenous Iowa pig farmer turned producer of some unbelievably nutritious beef, and many more, from other-worldly utility types at TXU to soft drink purveyor Pepsi Cola to both Dallas newspapers, Safeway’s Tom Thumb Supermarkets, super-Aggie ‘Bum’ Bright, and a host of others.

    It’s a business primer from the real world – where the rubber meets the road – told in Arnold’s confidential, talking-only-to-you storytelling style, a style reminiscent of James Herriot and Mark Twain.

    Entertaining and informative, even if you don’t care a whit about advertising.
