BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y. -- The Mom’s Choice Awards has named “The Crumbles Chronicles: Tails of a Nervous Dog” by Briarcliff resident Laura Scott Schaefer as among the best in family-friendly media, products and services.

“As soon as I got this quirky rescue dog," says Schaefer, “I knew the book had to be written. My goal was to imbue acceptance in a humorous book actually narrated from the perspective of an insecure pup.”

The book and accompanying fan club have been growing in popularity, and the second book is slated for release at the end of the summer. A portion of all sales goes to local animal shelters, and the book can be used for fundraising.

The book is a tale of rescue dog Crumbles as he struggles to protect his humans from an army of evil brown paper bags. Crumbles is aided by Napoleon, a militant poodle, and Chip, a rodent obsessed with the number 12. Whisper, the wise but mute bunny, makes a key appearance, too. Along the way, Crumbles shares his funny Crumbles Code Rules.

“We are thrilled to earn the Mom’s Choice Awards Honoring Excellence Seal of Approval,” says Penny Eifrig, editor-in-chief of Eifrig Publishing LLC, an independent publisher with offices in the U.S. and Europe.

“Our aim is to introduce families and educators to best-in-class products and services,” explains Dawn Matheson, executive director of the Mom’s Choice Awards.

“We have a passion to help families grow emotionally, physically and spiritually. Parents and educators know that products and services bearing our seal of approval are high-quality and also a great value.”
