    I believe she came up with the storyline of a 10-month-old Persian being dropped off at NSAL because of heart disease, that doctors said it was so fatal that he'd be a candidate for an emergency heart transplant if he was human, that they then gave him less than a year to live ("but he could go at any day, really"), and that supervising foster kittens gave him a new lease on life -- their adorable kitty love for him completely curing his heart of all measurable defects in just a matter of weeks.

    I believe she came up with that storyline because it's moronic.

    As far as the book's storyline goes, I'm guessing her editors had a hand in making it easier for children to believe by taking out the whole fatal heart condition bullshit.

    I believe Howard wrote the book. His story telling ability is far great than the English Majors. I really believe she had little to do with anything involving this book.

    It was probably Kristina Grish. She's the one who really wrote Oh My Dog.

    How odd is it that Model, Actress, English Major and SPOKES person for NSAL is not doing the READING for her own book? :grad:

    Reading isn't Beth's strong suit

    The Amazon listing said there was a 'contributor' (K.A. Alistir) = probably the person who wrote the book

    Actually i forget her name, but the "consultant" is a successful writer of about 5 or 6 children's books under her own name.

    Yes, she's fluent in Retard, Gold-digging Sugar-daddy talk, Mentally Challenged 12-year old talk, and many others.

    Beth's so dumb, she'd have to hire someone to read the book to her. And explain the "big" words to her.

    All those "celebrities" who "write " children's books really just come up with an idea. Everyone has ideas. The actual writing, which has to be perfectly paced and worded with precision is done by a real writer and editor. The art director designs the book with the illustrator who does the really hard part. It"s kind of like those assholes who "climb" a mountain when they were actually carried or dragged up to the summit by the hapless Sherpas. It's called "short lining."

    The "celebrity" children's book author lives in a world of make believe just like their readers.
