Goodnight Marines
The best-selling Marine Corps Children's book, Goodnight Marines makes the perfect gift for baby showers, birthdays, or during the holiday season. Brilliantly illustrated by former Disney Artist, Phil Jones (Tarzan, Mulan, Lilo & Stitch), and written by an award-winning poet and active-duty Marine, this hardcover children's book will warm the hearts of both young and old as the audience is taken on an imaginative adventure that teaches about the culture & traditions of the USMC. ------ A note from the author - Major David Dixon: "As a Marine and Iraq War veteran, I feel honored to represent the Marine Corps and the traditions that I hold so dear. I believe that Marines, both active duty and retired, must learn to engage the younger generation and share our proud culture of leadership. In this spirit I authored Goodnight Marines. All who read Goodnight Marines will appreciate the patriotism, heartfelt emotions, captivating illustrations, and richness of symbolism. In this book a young child gazes proudly at a photograph of his father - currently deployed to Afghanistan. The child's room is adorned with toy tanks, planes, radios, and trucks that he plays with to feel connected to his father. Then, as the child says goodnight to his dad and all of his military memorabilia, the toys come alive in his vibrant imagination. Kids, of course, love the quiet protagonist - the child's best friend and stuffed animal Teufel Hunden (Devil Dog). Unfortunately, this young boy cannot yet pronounce such a difficult German word, so he has named his friend "Tuffy Hound." The real spirit of Goodnight Marines culminates on the final page, where the moon shines on the father's picture next to his son - sleeping safely in his room with Tuffy Hound. I hope my fellow warriors enjoy reading this to their children as much as my wife and I do. A portion of the proceeds from this book will benefit Tillman Scholars through the Pat Tillman Foundation."

"A well-told, atmospherically illustrated replacement -- at last -- for the standard, but far-too-sketchy, Joseph Jacobs/Paul Galdone rendition." -- Kirkus Reviews, July 1, 2004
 
"Builds nicely and creates a fuller sense of the alternate life of the cats. . . . A seasoned storyteller, Shepard retains the basic scheme and a bit of wording from Jacobs, crafting a smooth narrative that will please listeners, storytellers, and readers." -- Margaret Bush, School Library Journal, Aug. 2004
 
"The story benefits from Shepard's firm grasp on the elements of good storytelling. . . . A fine choice for reading aloud." -- Carolyn Phelan, American Library Association Booklist, Oct. 1, 2004
 
"Kristin Sorra's vibrant drawings bring an old English folk story to life in Aaron Shepard's engaging King o' the Cats." -- Children's Bookwatch, Midwest Book Review, Jan 2005

One night Peter couldn't sleep. He tossed and he turned and at last got up to make himself some tea. But when he glanced out his window, he saw the windows of the church ablaze with light.
 
"What in the world . . . ?" muttered Peter. "There shouldn't be anyone there, this time of night. And how'd they get in, anyway?"
 
Peter pulled on a coat, crossed the yard, and quietly unlocked the back door. As he crept through the vestry, he heard a sound from the church. "Meow, meow . . . ."
 
"Sounds like a cat," murmured Peter. "But I never knew a cat to light a candle."
 
He peered around the curtain hung at the church entrance, and what he saw made him gasp. There was not one cat, but hundreds of cats, of every size and coloring. They filled the pews, and all of them sat upright just like people.
 
On the steps to the altar, a big black cat -- the biggest cat Peter had ever seen -- was kneeling with his head bowed. Standing above him with paws upraised was a black cat in bishop's robes, intoning, "Meow, meow . . . ."
 
An altar kitten approached with a velvet pillow on which lay a small golden crown. The bishop lifted the crown and solemnly placed it on the kneeling cat's head.
 
The church exploded with cries of "Meow, meow!" Peter didn't wait to see more. He raced through the vestry and back to his cottage, where he jumped into bed and stayed trembling under the covers till morning.
