G ilbe rt LOV E ACCO RDI NG TO CO SMO B y J ennifer Dodd A lawyer’s mind and a news reporter’s way with words —none of it stopped Harry Gilbert’s brain from having a stroke. Actually, he had three of them. This story chronicles his strokes, recovery, and (mostly) positive attitude. A stroke can happen to anyone, anytime, including to people in the prime of their lives. This revealing memoir tells the story of post-stroke: of the frustration of being unable to say the words you are thinking, or to complete mundane tasks that were previously effortless, like adding simple numbers, writing, telling time or driving a car—but also of hope and persistence. With gentle humor, author Harry Gilbert helps us understand the path of recovery and provides encouragement that post-stroke life can return to normal—even if it is a new normal. What do dogs really think? In “Love According to Cosmo,” we once again follow Cosmo as he takes a trip to the vet and makes a very important discovery about life. This is the second book written by author Jennifer Dodd and illustrated by Christina Olson, after their first chronicling of Cosmo’s thoughts in “Life According to Cosmo.”
