When a tiny fish shoots into view wearing a round blue topper (which happens to fit him perfectly), trouble could be
following close behind. So it’s a good thing that enormous fish won’t
wake up. And even if he does, it’s not like he’ll ever know what
happened. . . . Visual humor swims to the fore as the best-selling Jon
Klassen follows his breakout debut with another deadpan-funny tale.

Book store nation, in the history of mankind there has never been a greater country than America. You could say we're the #1 nation at being the best at greatness.
But as perfect as America is in every single way, America is broken!
And we can't exchange it because we're 236 years past the 30-day return
window. Look around--we don't make anything anymore, we've mortgaged our
future to China, and the Apologist-in-Chief goes on world tours just to
bow before foreign leaders. Worse, the L.A. Four Seasons Hotel doesn't
even have a dedicated phone button for the Spa. You have to dial an
extension! Where did we lose our way?!
It's high time we restored America to the greatness it never lost!

Joseph Anton: A Memoir Cover Image
ISBN: 9780812992786
Availability: Special Order
Published: Random House - September 18th, 2012

How do a writer and his family live with the threat of murder for more
than nine years? How does he go on working? How does he fall in and out
of love? How does despair shape his thoughts and actions, how and why
does he stumble, how does he learn to fight back? In this remarkable
memoir Rushdie tells that story for the first time; the story of one of
the crucial battles, in our time, for freedom of speech. He talks about
the sometimes grim, sometimes comic realities of living with armed
policemen, and of the close bonds he formed with his protectors; of his
struggle for support and understanding from governments, intelligence
chiefs, publishers, journalists, and fellow writers; and of how he
regained his freedom.

Published: Abrams Books for Young Readers - September 2012

From Michael Buckley, the bestselling author of the Sisters Grimm and NERDS series, and Dan Santat, author-illustrator of Sidekicks,
comes this hilarious picture book starring Kel Gilligan (a.k.a. “The
Boy Without Fear”) that encourages kids to laugh at their fears and
celebrates the bravery it takes to try new things no matter how
ordinary. Narrated by Kel himself as he attempts his “stunts” with Evel
Knievel–like flair, the story unfolds as a performance in which readers
themselves become part of the audience, encouraging Kel to get dressed
all by himself (without a net!), eat new foods like broccoli
(eww!), and take a bath (gasp!). Bold, interactive, and downright
silly, this is a book to make kids cheer and attempt some “stunts” of
their own.
