Miami Hound Machine?

Gloria Estefan can now add author to her impressive resume. Joining the likes of Madonna, Estefan has written a children's book about her English bulldog, Noelle, The Magically Mysterious Adventures of Noelle the Bulldog (HarperCollins, November 2005, $17.99, ages 4-8). The book comes with a CD featuring Estefan's first song for children, Noelle's Song (Been Wishin'), which is good news for fans who can't get over her retirement. Noelle isn't just a dog. According to Gloria, "She's a very unique dog. She stood out from day one. It reminded me of my immigrant thing. She was having trouble, trying to swim in the pond. She had short legs . . . She came to be a part of our family quite by accident and has brought us unforgettable experiences that I hope to share with readers. I hope Noelle will bring them as much joy and surprise as she has brought into the lives of everyone who met her."
