Since its publication in 2005, The Gift of Nothing has become an instant classic—the perfect gift for "the person who has everything." In this appealing picture book, Mooch the cat—star of the nationally-syndicated comic strip Mutts—searches for a present for his friend, Earl the dog. Earl already has everything he needs: a bowl, a bed, a chewy toy...What else could Mooch get him? Then it dawns on him: NOTHING! This timeless tale has a heart-warming message about the most valuable gift of all—friendship—that appeals to readers of all ages. Great for a last minute gift, this special edition includes an elegant paper slipcase designed to look like gift wrap with foil accents and an embossed bow and faux hang tag.
