Feiwel & Friends


It all started when a loving mother posted a few pictures of her son, Beau, and their new puppy, Theo, napping together on her popular blog Momma's Gone City. But these pictures were so "unbearably adorable" (The Daily Mail) and "utterly charming" (The Huffington Post) that it quickly became much, much more.

By faithfully recording and sharing what Good Morning America calls "the most mesmerizing naps ever caught on camera," Jessica Shyba and her family captured the hearts of people all over the world, and these beautiful images of friendship and trust have become an international viral sensation. Best Books of the Year


Naptime with Theo and Beau by Jessica Shyba Book Trailer

Theo and Beau are already a viral sensation thanks to the gorgeous, "unbearably adorable," "utterly charming," photos that author (and Beau's mother) Jessica Shyba has been posting on her popular blog Momma's Gone City. And now, she's combed through her hundreds of pictures to find the very sweetest and matched them to a charming bedtime story to make a picture book that is (as Alyssa Milano said to the blog) "so cute it hurts."
