Daily Deals: Amazing Gracie, The Willoughbys and Doodle Sprint Fly and Jump

Amazing Gracie: A Dog's TaleToday Amazon offers Amazing Gracie: A Dog’s Tale by Dan Dye, Mark Beckloff just for $1.99.

It was love at first sight. Amid the frenzied barking and prancing of a house full of Great Danes, one pup was shivering in the corner. Gracie. But when Dan Dye reached her, she struggled to her feet like a clumsy foal, raised her forehead to his, and announced, as clearly as if she had actually spoken the words, You know I’m the one. Now get me outta here!

By turns funny, moving, tender, and inspiring, Gracie’s tale is a treat for every dog lover. There is Gracie’s first morning, racing around Dan in the snowy yard. Gracie’s first determination to prove to her step-sisters, Dottie the Dalmation and Sarah the Black Lab, that she’s one of the girls. Gracie’s defiant romance with a pint-size charmer named Byron, a Boston Terrier from the wrong side of the fence.

Then born of necessity, the eureka moment: When Gracie’s delicate constitution starts turning into anorexia, Dan teaches himself how to cook, and in three days is baking her the cookies that will spur her appetite, launch Three Dog Bakery, and transform their lives forever.

Courage. Compassion. Kindness. Soul. Tenacity. And joy, above all, joy. These qualities Gracie possessed in abundance, and shared with everyone, human or canine, who had the good fortune to cross her path.

The WilloughbysThe Willoughbys by Lois Lowry is a book for 6 and up age level. It costs $1.99 within today’s daily deal.

Abandoned by their ill-humored parents to the care of an odious nanny, Tim, the twins, Barnaby A and Barnaby B, and their sister, Jane, attempt to fulfill their roles as good oldfashioned children. Following the models set in lauded tales from A Christmas Carol to Mary Poppins, the four Willoughbys hope to attain their proscribed happy ending too, or at least a satisfyingly maudlin one. However, it is an unquestionably ruthless act that sets in motion the transformations that lead to their salvation and to happy endings for not only the four children, but their nanny, an abandoned baby, a candy magnate, and his long-lost son too. Replete with a tongue-in-cheek glossary and bibliography, this hilarious and decidedly old-fashioned parody pays playful homage to classic works of children’s literature.

Now in paperback, AMAZING GRACIE is a moving, funny, and inspirational canine rags-to-riches story. Tears will stain the pages as you read about Gracie, says USA Today. The Chicago Tribune advises, If you’re short on inspiration, read Amazing Gracie. You don’t have to be obsessed with dogs to love this story (Philadelphia Enquirer), Two paws up (Portland Oregonian), humorous yet poignant (ASPCA Animal Watch). Booklist comments that Dog-loving teens, especially reluctant readers, will eat this up. AMAZING GRACIE was nominated as a Young Adult Choice for 2002 by The International Reading Association-proof that it’s a great crossover book.

Gracie was a deaf and partially blind albino Great Dane with a delicate constitution and a penchant for small miracles. Dan is the man-sad over the loss of his last dog and trapped in a dead-end job-who adopted her. Three Dog Bakery is the burgeoning and much-publicized chain of canine bakeries that, inspired by Gracie, Dan and his friend Mark founded. A love story, AMAZING GRACIE describes how Dan saves Gracie, the loneliest pup in the litter, then how, over the next ten years, Gracie saves Dan and Mark, teaching them the real meaning of happiness. There’s the moment of meeting, when Gracie gets to her feet like a clumsy foal and nuzzles Dan’s nose. Gracie’s romance with the pint-size Boston Terrier next door. And the eureka moment (born of Gracie’s anorexia-inducing dislike for commercial dog food): Dan teaches himself to cook and within three days begins baking the dog cookies that will transform their lives. AMAZING GRACIE is a dog-lover’s treat.

 

Jelly Wars

Today only you can download a funny game which called Jelly Wars for free.

Whether you’re fighting as a Red Jelly or a Blue Jelly, one thing is certain: you’re an angry, war-mongering Jelly. Destroy your opponent in this turn-based, goo-launching game for your Android device.

Greedy Little Gum Drops

After living in harmony for centuries on opposite sides of the mountain, a bright, glowing light from the sky became the source of great contention. Both tribes sent their bravest soldier to find out what was causing the amazing glow, and to claim it as their own. The great Jelly soldiers met at the top, face-to-jiggly-face to duke it out. But still the battle ensues. The fight over the treasure has turned into generations of war. The disdain for one another runs deep.

Goo Bombs Awaaay!

Both Jellies are strategically placed at opposite sides of your screen, propped upon platforms floating in the water. It’s a goo-launching face-off, but all kinds of obstacles stand between the two. The objective is to take turns firing at each other, obliterating obstacles in the way until one of these Jellies makes a fruit snack out of the other.

Good soldiers have a plan of attack. You’ve got three options: launch an exploding goo-grenade at the opponent, shoot sticky green jelly at an obstacle to eliminate it, or change your position by jumping, and plop your little goo-butt somewhere else.

It Takes Two to Tango

What fun is war without a real opponent to beat up on? Jelly Wars finds a real Jelly soldier for you who can be from anywhere around the world. You can even invite friends to play. Chat with your new frenimies online (only if you want to) and compete for the highest score.

Despite their angry mission, you can’t help but to love the entertaining cartoon graphics and their little bug-eyed jelly faces. They’re just so darn cute when they’re mad!
