RHYMES WITH ORANGE cartoonist Hilary Price reports that she has a new book: CanineComics. It’s a comic book of dog cartoons, and a companion to her
previous comic books, Catacomics and Hanukkomics. Although it will be available online from www.IndyPlanet.us very soon, signed copies are only available at this time if you attend her Open Studios event, Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 11 & 12, 10 A.M.-5 P.M., 221 Pine St. Florence, MA 01062. You ask, "What’s Open Studios?" Hilary replies, "it's when 50+ Artists open their doors for the public to snoop around and touch things. Unique gifts for the holidays. Small cups of wine.

MUTTS cartoonist Patrick McDonnell alerted his fans that his newest picture book, The Little Red Cat Who Ran Away (and Learned His ABCs The Hard Way), was released earlier this month and has received starred reviews. As some readers have pointed out, Little Red looks like he could be related to a certain pink-sock-loving feline we all know. And if you look closely, you’ll see that The Red Cat is indeed a close relative of Mooch! Check it out here.
