The Owl and the Pussycat

The Owl and the Pussycat Review

Owl sets out to woo Pussycat in a boat laden with fruit from their Caribbean island and with a guitar at his side, ready for serenading.

As they sail off across the sea, another story unfolds in the water beneath the boat. One by one, exotic sea creatures swim into the picture and a small yellow fish seems to be looking for someone.

Jan Brett brings the magic of the Caribbean to her exquisitely detailed illustrations of Edward Lear’s charming poem.

From the Board edition.

The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins (Classic Seuss)

The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins (Classic Seuss) Review

Celebrate the 75th birthday of this classic treatise on bullying by Dr. Seuss with our new foil-covered, color-enhanced Anniversary Edition! As topical today as when it was first published in 1938, The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins is the story of a young peasant (the same as in Bartholomew and the Oobleck—a Caldecott Honor Award-winner), and his unjust treatment at the hands of King Derwin. While The 500 Hats is one of Dr. Seuss’s earliest and lesser known works, it is nevertheless totally Seussian and addresses subjects that we know the good doctor was passionate about throughout his life: the abuse of power (as in Yertle the Turtle and Horton Hears a Who); rivalry (as in The Sneetches); and of course, zany good humor (as in The Cat in the Hat and the 43 other books he wrote and illustrated)! Available for a limited time only, this is a perfect way to introduce new readers to an old classic, or to reward existing fans.

A Pizza the Size of the Sun

A Pizza the Size of the Sun Review

Jack Prelutsky is widely acknowledged as the poet laureate of the younger generation. (And many people would happily see him crowned with no age qualification.) The New Kid on the Block and Something Big Has Been Here are household words wherever there are kids.

Here is another wondrously rich, varied, clever – and always funny – collection. Meet Miss Misinformation, Swami Gourami, and Gladiola Gloppe (and her Soup Shoppe), and delight in a backwards poem, a poem that ever ends, and scores of others that will be changed, read, and loved by readers of every age. The Prelutsky-Stevenson duo is irresistible. Whether you begin at the beginning or just open the book at random, you won’t stop smiling.

Great product!

Les Oeufs Verts au Jambon: The French Edition of Green Eggs and Ham (I Can Read It All by Myself Beginner Books)

Les Oeufs Verts au Jambon: The French Edition of Green Eggs and Ham (I Can Read It All by Myself Beginner Books) Review

THE BELOVED CLASSIC, NOW IN FRENCH!

Originally published in English as Green Eggs and Ham, this new French translation faithfully captures Dr. Seuss’ beloved story and playful rhyme.

Here is the classic tale of Sam-I-am and his creative, silly and even desperate attempts to have his “nouveau cuisine” sampled by one unadventurous critic. Perfect for learning to read French, Les œufs verts au jambon also encourages readers to never give up when facing rejection and to keep an open mind about something new since that new thing may well be “so good, so good, you see.”

♣ ♣ ♣

Traduit du livre américain Green Eggs and Ham, cette nouvelle version française restitue fidèlement l’oeuvre du Dr. Seuss, auteur réputé pour son écriture musicale, sa fantaisie et son humour.

Voici l’histoire du sympathique éléphant Horton, qui parvient, à force de courage, à sauver les microscopiques habitants d’un gain de poussière. Parfait pour apprendre à lire le français, Horton Entend un Zou! Porte aussi un message: chacun mérite d’être aimé et soutenu, qu’il soit grand, petit ou même minuscule!

Cautionary Tales for Children

Cautionary Tales for Children Review

For readers of any age, a witty and strikingly irreverent collection of moral guidance
 
Most notable among prolific English satirist Hilaire Belloc’s writings are the sharp and clever admonishments he composed for children. Collected here and illustrated to wonderful haunting effect by Edward Gorey, these short, funny pieces offer moral instruction for all types of mischief makers—from a certain young Jim, “who ran away from his nurse and was eaten by a lion,” to the tale of Matilda, “who told lies and was burned to death”—and add up to a delightful read for any fan of Roald Dahl or Shel Silverstein.

Oh, Baby, the Places You’ll Go!

Oh, Baby, the Places You’ll Go! Review

An introduction to the world of Dr. Seuss—for babies and babies-to-be!
 
Artfully adapted almost entirely from Ted Geisel’s work, this introduction to the world of Dr. Seuss is a must for expectant parents and new babies! In simple rhymed verse, author Tish Rabe extolls the joys awaiting newborns when they meet the Cat in the Hat, Horton the Elephant, Yertle the Turtle, the Great Birthday Bird, the Grinch, and twenty-five other beloved Seuss characters. Written to be read aloud to babies and babies-to-be (yes, babies in utero!), the book includes a brief introduction by Mrs. Dr. Seuss—Audrey Geisel—revealing how she and Ted were fascinated by the idea that babies could hear sounds while still in the womb—and might actually respond to the voices of their parents. A perfect gift for baby showers and newborns, Oh, Baby, the Places You’ll Go! is the ideal way to nurture a love of reading and Dr. Seuss in the very youngest children!Random House

Dinosaurs Galore!

Dinosaurs Galore! Review

“As the sun lights the horizon, and the mist begins to clear, what shapes do you begin to see; what noises do you hear? Perhaps you’ll see a swishing tail, huge footprints, or a beak. I think I heard a distant roar… and did you hear something shriek?”

Giles Andreae and David Wojtowycz have combined their talents once again to create this funny, rhythmic and fact-filled picture book about the lives of the great dinosaurs.

From sun-up to sundown, meet the creatures that swam, roamed and flew over prehistoric earth. This title is brimming with vivid, bold illustrations paired with clever rhymes about every child’s favorite: Dinosaurs!Used Book in Good Condition
