Titles At Your Library
The Fuzzy Robot: A Color-It-Yourself Book by Paul Gude
ISBN: 143483381X CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. 2008 This is a coloring book about a fuzzy robot who doesn't fit in with the metal robots, but still saves them from bears. It also likes flowers and kazoos.
When Elephant Met Giraffe (Giraffe and Elephant)
ISBN: 1423163036 Disney-Hyperion. 2014
From the instant she sees him at the water hole, Elephant is curious about Giraffe. And while Giraffe doesn't have much to say, Elephant is more than happy to make the first move. From inviting herself to bake pretzels with Giraffe to ordering him around while playing pirates, Elephant?s bold and brassy style takes some getting used to. But still waters run deep and silent Giraffe seems to have no problem making himself heard. The result is a friend for the ages.
A Surprise for Giraffe and Elephant (Giraffe and Elephant are Friends)
ISBN: 1423183118 Disney-Hyperion. 2015 Elephant has a lot to say about surprises-about surprise alpine horn serenades, and surprise toboggans, and surprise parties.
And while Giraffe doesn't have a lot to say about surprises, or anything else, he always seems to get the last word.
With surprising wit and humor, Paul Gude brings back delightfully earnest Elephant and her quiet friend, Giraffe, for three new (and surprisingly silly) adventures that will leave readers laughing and asking for more!
These Are Your Coded Instructions: Poems By Paul Gude

Two pages await his personal attention.
Ninjas!: The Spacefaring Cowboys Of Japan's Mesozoic Era
ISBN: 1434816346 Createspace. 2007 This is a book about ninjas, written and illustrated by Paul Gude, and NOT a sock puppet.
ISBN: 1434825019 CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. 2007 These are stupid comics by Paul Gude, which he created when he didn't have time to make a Super Rocket Monkey or Giraffes and Elephants Are Friends comic.
Super Rocket Monkey
ISBN: 1438246978 CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. 2008 The lovable space monkey gets a full-on comic treatment as he fights a nude martian menace in his own mini-book! 26 pages of justice! (BONUS: This version includes at least three spelling or typographical errors! Can you find them all?) NOTE: This Super Rocket Monkey mini-book is not for children.
Love In A Time Of Zombies
ISBN: 1438239157 CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. 2009 Conceived as a "mash-up" of a bad romance novel and a boilerplate zombie epic, Love in a Time of Zombies is pretty much exactly that. WARING: Graphic language, frank descriptions of questionable activities, and poor similes pervade the text.
