About Christine’s books:
“The Jewel Collar” is the story of a Maltese dog, Aristotle, who moves from the family beach house to a new home shortly before Christmas so his Mommy, an attorney, can be closer to the Courthouse and train station. Ari is very sad, missing his garden friends. Ari decides to share the jewels on his Jewel Collar with new friends in the Floral Park garden.
