    Dogs may be man’s best friend, but how would a canine companion be as an office colleague? On the 25th of June, it’s Take Your Dog to Work Day, so it’s the perfect time to find out…or just an excuse to give everyone a better Friday with some puppy love. After all, collectively, we absolutely adore dogs, whether it’s dog videos, the hilarity of Sad Dog Diary, or even The Oatmeal’s vital post about his dog, “The Paradox.”

    In books and pop culture, dogs are usually noble, brave, loyal, loving, and often the heroes of their own stories. Despite this, a lot of those stories are still told from the human’s perspective, but for anyone looking for a way to get between the ears of their favorite furball, these books are definitely the way to go.

    This month, Disney’s bright new summer movie hits streaming services—the Italian seaside story of Luca. This movie is a far cry from the classic stories of princesses dreaming for a prince to save them, and instead, is about two young sea monsters who want to explore human life on land. Of course, there are plenty of inspiring moments about friendship, trying new things, and learning about people who are different—and some very literal "fish out of water" gags!

    Luca promises to be a charming addition to the Disney library, but it’s not the only movie that has seen humans befriending the things that go splash in the night.

    The second book in the Little Kid, Big City! series comes out today, and where we previously got to explore New York, this time we're going to be poking around London. A travelogue of charming pictures and descriptions, written as a sort of choose your own adventure, is a fantastic way to read a travel book no matter what, but you know what would improve it? A cup of tea. Always a cup of tea, you can trust us on this one. So, to help you with this, we're picking some books and some teas we think go pretty well together, so you can settle in properly.

    Like Mother's Day, Father's Day has snuck up on us this year, but no need to panic purchase another random tchotchke! It will only collect dust or get totally, unintentionally misplaced. Instead, give our latest list of Father's Day book recommendations a scroll, and make this year's celebration a book-filled one.

    Fresh on the heels of the time-traveling and reality altering adventures of Avengers: Endgame, Marvel is back to bend minds and generally sow time-based chaos with a limited TV series, all centered on Loki. In the trailers, we see Loki grabbed and taken away by agents of The Time Variance Authority, of which he becomes an agent (in his own chaotic way, presumably).

    The Time Variance Authority looks suitable, surreal, weird, and like a lot of fun, but it’s interesting to note that it is hardly the first organization trying to apply rules and paperwork-detail to time and space. Here are a few more organizations trying to do the same thing.
