A funny learning story for the stubborn times that all children experience.

I Won’t Comb My Hair! by Annette Langen illustrated by Frauke Bahr

• Holographic cover adds some fun to this humorous tale • The first in a series of “I WON’T” books—Spring 2011 will bring the next in the series, I  Won’t Wear My Glasses!

About the Book Tanya is about to have a very bad hair day! It’s easy to tell when Tanya doesn’t want to do something. “I WON’T!” she screams, so loudly that the whole neighborhood can hear. And there is one thing Tanya really doesn’t want to do. She WILL NOT EVER comb her hair. About the Author Annette Langen studied publishing in the United States and worked for many years as a children’s book editor in Germany. She is the author of several children’s books, including Letters from Felix, which was translated into 29 languages. About the Illustrator Frauke Bahr was born in Cuxhaven, Germany, on the shores of the North Sea.

An entertaining and educational insight into the world of an old diner as run by a well spoken bear and an adroit elephant.

Frank and Ernest by Alexandra Day

• A classic back in print for the first time since 1991 • Received a pointed review in Kirkus and a starred review in School Library Journal • The first in a series of Green Tiger and Friends classic reprints of the legendary children’s book publisher’s best works 

About the Book First published in 1988 and now back by popular demand, Frank and Ernest is the entertaining tale of a bear and an elephant who learn to run a diner.  The charming illustrations of the Deco-era diner and the novelty of its animal employees will appeal to children, but the diner slang that Frank and Ernest learn and use will delight parents and children alike.  Frank and Ernest will reveal the meaning of “burn one, take it through the garden, and pin a rose on it,” “a stack with Vermont and a blonde with sand,” as well as “guess water,” “balloon juice,” and “million on a platter.” As in her popular Carl books, Day excels at visual jokes and loving detail, but in Frank and Ernest the text is as delightful as the pictures.  About the Author Alexandra Day is the creator of the beloved Good Dog, Carl series and her dog, a Rottweiler named Toby, was the model for the book’s main character. Her first book, The Teddy Bear’s Picnic, was published in 1983 and won several awards. In addition to her work as an illustrator, she and her husband founded the Green Tiger Press in 1970.

“In skillfully executed paintings, Day depicts a diner that is sure to evoke nostalgia among old-timers. Children should enjoy adding these novelties to their vocabularies and making the connections that inspired the descriptions is good fun.”—Kirkus Reviews “Clever and original, this playful romp serves up its message with a smile. It’s bound to become standard fare . . .” —School Library Journal, starred review

Wally and Mae are back in another charming read-aloud storybook.

This cautionary tale about the danger of bragging is popular the world around.

Uncle Rabbit’s Busy Visit

Pinocchio

by Christa Kempter illustrated by Frauke Weldin

• Wally and Mae was a 2008 Indiebound Pick

Praise for Wally and Mae: ”This take on compromise provides fuel for thought. When neatnik bunny Wally advertises an upstairs apartment for rent, Mae, a huge bear, shoves her way into the house, turns her room into a pigsty and cheerfully gobbles up Wally’s carrot cakes . . . Genial Mae and sibs are appealingly shaggy, massive presences in Weldin’s cleanly drawn scenes, and along with the humor inherent in the characters’ size differential, young readers will appreciate how the lay of Wally’s long ears so clearly telegraphs his ups and downs.”—Kirkus Reviews

About the Book Sometimes a helper can help too much! When Uncle Rabbit comes to visit, he can’t find anything he likes—not Wally’s wallpaper, not his curtains, not even his pillows—and Uncle Rabbit is determined to help. Before Wally can blink an eye, his uncle is repapering the living room. Then he gets busy at the sewing machine making new curtains and cushions. He’s driving poor Wally crazy. And it doesn’t help one bit that Mae thinks Uncle Rabbit is wonderful. About the Author Christa Kempter has been writing children’s books since 1992. She also writes for German radio and television. She lives in Germany. About the Illustrator Frauke Weldin worked in a bookstore for many years. Inspired by the children’s books she had been selling, she then studied illustration. She lives in Hamburg, Germany.

by Carlo Collodi illustrated by Quentin Gréban

• Pinocchio is a classic, and this edition fits NorthSouth’s program of beautifully illustrated classic tales

Praise for Snow White: “Gréban’s watercolor views on the book cover and endpapers invite readers into the home of the dwarfs, a much happier place than the lonely forest in which Snow White is quickly abandoned once the story actually begins. Unlike most picture-book versions, Gréban’s text is faithful to the old story, omitting just a few details . . .The pairing of the text and pictures will work especially well for read-aloud sharing . . . Every library should find it a most welcome introduction to Grimms’ tales.” —School Library Journal

Renowned illustrator Bernadette Watts’ artwork combines with a classic Grimm’s fairy tale to create a lovely story of selfless giving.

The Star Child by The Brothers Grimm illustrated by Bernadette Watts

• Bernadette Watts is consistently well-reviewed in the United States • Charmingly illustrated version of a Brothers Grimm rarity

Praise for Little Red Riding Hood: “My, what big talent she has! British artist Watts’s treatment of this Grimm Brothers favorite was first published in Europe in 1968. Now issued with a new (sadly uncredited) English translation, it will reach a contemporary American audience. The illustrator’s detailed, richly colored pictures bear the influence of her mentor, Brian Wildsmith, and she demonstrates her mastery of the picture-book form as she juxtaposes characters across the gutter at strategic moments, employs fully saturated pages at some turns and spot art at others, all heightening reader’s focus and dramatic tension at key points . . .The old is new again here, and this is a welcome addition to the fairy-tale shelf.”—Kirkus

About the Book There was once a young girl whose only possessions were the clothes on her back and a piece of bread that some kind soul had given to her. But even these few things meant much to others that were less fortunate than herself, and in selfless love, the girl gave the little she had away. In this beautiful Grimm’s tale, her virtue is rewarded a thousand times over. About the Author Jakob and Wilhelm Grimm got their legendary inspiration from peasants and villagers, and sometimes from already-published works from other cultures. Jakob did much of the research, while Wilhelm put the stories into literary form.

• Based on a true story • Tackles universal themes of discouragement and the desire to fit in • A rare book in which the child with learning disabilities gets to be the hero

Based on a true story, The Boy Who Learned Upside Down tells how one child’s quest for courage wound up helping thousands of other children with learning challenges.

Praise for I Want a Dog: “The illustrations have a surrealistic, dreamy quality with distorted proportions and muted tones, but Lisa has her own quirky appeal with her flaming carrot-orange hair topped by a newspaper-print bow.”—Kirkus Reviews

The author of I Want A Dog returns with an adorable new heroine that little girls will love.

A little girl and a doll find each other in this sweet story.

Brava, Mimi!

The Somebody for Me

by Helga Bansch

by Chiba Minako

• Helga Bansch’s previous title, I Want a Dog, was well reviewed • Little girls love ballet—and mice like Mimi! • Bansch’s artwork is distinctive, but still girly

• Author has a very modern, almost edgy art style that will appeal to hip parents • Loneliness and needing a best friend are universal concepts that children deal with as they grow up 

About the Book Take a bow, Mimi! More than anything in the world, Mimi wanted to be on stage—to sing, to dance, to act! But to sing, dance, and act, you had to be talented and beautiful. “And I’m not,” Mimi thought sadly. But Mimi has determination and spunk and perseverance. Will that be enough? Can she do it? Can Mimi become a star?

About the Book The dolls sat in the toyshop window, waiting hopefully for somebody to love them.“I want a little girl somebody,” said one. “I want a baby somebody,” said another. “I want a grandmother somebody,” said a third.“I just want the somebody for me,” said Sumiko. This tender story will warm the hearts of young and old alike.

About the Author Born in Loeben, Austria, Helga Bansch has taught primary school and made marionettes for puppet theaters. Since 2003, she has lived in Vienna, working as an artist and running workshops for children.

About the Author Chiba Minako graduated from Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music. In 2006, she was awarded the Grand Prize in the picture book category of the Nissan Children’s Story Book and Picture Book competition. Minako lives in Tokyo.

A Child Is Born From the Gospel According to St. Luke illustrated by Marc-Alexander Schulze

• A wonderful book for a parent and child to share during the holiday season • Features the classic text from the King James Bible • Perfect for holiday gift tables and catalogs, with potential for the Christian market 

About the Book For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

About the Illustrator While studying illustration and commercial design in Hamburg, Germany, Marc-Alexander Schulze worked for the publishing house Milchstrasse (Milky Way).

Incredible illustrations illuminate a tale taken from a literary classic.

The Fairy Tale of the World by Jürg Amann illustrated by Käthi Bhend

• Amann is a bestselling author in Switzerland  • Bhend’s artwork has been lauded by Publishers Weekly and Kirkus

About the Book This is not a fairy tale in the usual sense. There are no princesses, no golden eggs, no happy endings. A brooding portrait of a solitary postapocalyptic existence, The Fairy Tale of the World is nonetheless compelling. The story was originally conceived by a brilliant young German writer, Georg Büchner, who died tragically at the age of 23. Award-winning Swiss author Jürg Amann has adapted this story from a scene in Büchner’s Woyzeck, a moving play about the effects of poverty. Internationally acclaimed artist Käthi Bhend has stunningly and surprisingly interpreted Amann’s lyrical language and bleak imagery. About the Authors Jürg Amann is one of Switzerland’s most honored writers. He started his writing career with a study of Franz Kafka’s works, and he has also worked as a journalist and a dramaturge at the main theater of Zürich. Georg Büchner (1813-1837) died when he was only 23, but his place in German literature is monumental. He was a fearless precursor of those who fight to protect human rights and social equality.

Praise for In My Dreams, I Can Fly: “A meditative sense of mystery sets this book apart. It is autumn, and five friends—a grub, two worms, a beetle, and a caterpillar—are hunkering down. Their regular card games at the grub’s place give way to stockpiling their holes for the winter freeze. Bhend’s cut-away vision of this miniature underworld is a scraggly, cramped, cluttered, yet somehow cozy maze daubed in soft, muted colors and festooned with twisting vines that reach beyond each rectangular frame. It has a gently magical, early-Disney feel also reflected in the straightforward prose . . . An earnest, unfettered effort with enough visual detail to win over all kinds of readers and listeners.”—Booklist

About the Illustrator Käthi Bhend has studied commercial art and worked in advertising for several years before she began illustrating books.

A prickly little adoptee learns that the best defense is not a good offense—it’s letting yourself be loved.

A playful and rhythmic page-turner in which Carrot the Cat learns that to like who you are is right where it’s at.

Porcupette Finds a Family

Carrot

by Vanita Oelschlager illustrated by Mike Blanc

• Parents, teachers, and child psychologists can use this book to talk about attachment problems • Excellent school and classroom lesson opportunity • Shows that any type of family is good if there is love Praise for A Tale of Two Daddies: “There are few picture books which touch on the subject of same-sex parents, especially two daddies. The premise of the story is like And Mango Makes Three, as it highlights the idea that families are formed by care and love and, particularly in the case if same-gender parents, not defined by sexuality.”—Carolyn S. Brodie, Ph.D., and Michelle Baldini, Kent State University School of Library and Information Science

About the Book A baby porcupine (called a porcupette) finds a new family after losing his mother. He wants to have an attachment to the bear family he finds, but is afraid his “bear” family will leave him too. This causes him to act out his fears in ways that jeopardize acceptance from his adopted family. However, with the understanding and help of Mother Bear, Porcupette finally accepts that he is truly loved and wanted despite, or maybe because of, his differences. About the Author Vanita Oelschlager is a wife, mother, grandmother, philanthropist, former teacher, current caregiver, author, and poet. She serves as a Trustee of her alma mater and as Writer in Residence for the Literacy Program at The University of Akron.

by Vanita Oelschlager illustrated by Kristin Blackwood

About the Book A delightful story about a common house cat who finds that the grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence. Carrot envies the fancy white cat she sees on a yacht in the bay and fantasizes a life of wealth: “She would be asked to marry / the Earl of Kent’s cat. / Nothing could be / more romantic than that.” Finally Carrot realizes her “common” life has much to offer that idleness aboard a yacht could never fulfill: “Without their sweet Carrot / what would her poor family do? / And what of the mouse? / Who would tend to his flu?”   About the Illustrator Kristin Blackwood is a teacher and a frequent illustrator of books for children.

The classic fairy tale is brought to life through beautiful illustrations from Bernadette Watts.

Who would have thought Santa receives visitors on Christmas Eve?  

Rumpelstiltskin

A Visit to Santa Claus

by The Brothers Grimm illustrated by Bernadette Watts

• Another in NorthSouth’s line of classic fairy tales illustrated by world-renowned European artists

About the Book When the king charges the miller’s beautiful daughter with spinning straw into gold she makes an ill-advised deal with the cunning Rumpelstiltskin.

Praise for The Lion and the Mouse: “In this retelling of the Aesop fable of the same name, Bernadette Watts creates in text and illustration an ‘uncluttered’ picture book version of the fable. She uses simple text, detailed illustrations in soft natural colors, and lots of white space to make the book appealing to younger readers.” —Kirkus

About the Authors Jakob and Wilhelm Grimm got their legendary inspiration from peasants and villagers, and sometimes from already-published works from other cultures. Jakob did much of the research, while Wilhelm put the stories into literary form. About the Illustrator Bernadette Watts has loved to draw since her childhood in England. She created her first picture book under the influence of Beatrix Potter. Watts studied at the Maidstone Art School in Kent and is the illustrator of NorthSouth fairy tales The Snow Queen and The Ugly Duckling.

The third book in the Larger than Life series, detailing the astonishing success of a Canadian horse-racing legend.

Northern Dancer King of the Racetrack by Gare Joyce

• A true horse story about a colt nobody wanted that grew to great fame • Author writes for ESPN The Magazine and espn.com and is the author of Sidney Crosby: Taking the Game by Storm

About the Book Northern Dancer was born in 1961 at the famed Windfields farm in Oshawa, Ontario. As a colt, he was unimpressive, small and stocky in stature, ornery and mischievous by disposition.   Eventually, the colt that nobody wanted took the racing world by storm. Northern Dancer won the Kentucky Derby and went on to win the Preakness Stakes of Baltimore, and also nearly won the Belmont of New York. His seven wins earned him the title of champion three-year-old of 1964. On retirement, Northern Dancer became the greatest horse stud in history, worth more than $40 million by 1981. Today, it is estimated that his bloodlines extend to 50-70% of all thoroughbred horses.

A fascinating look at the horrible habits of the housefly—a truly astonishing creature.

Focus On Flies by Norma Dixon

• This is Norma Dixon’s second book about everyday critters • An excellent introduction to insects for children, parents, and teachers

About the Book The housefly shares horrible habits with thousands of other two-winged insects that belong to the family of true flies. Gnats, midges, black flies, horse flies, African tsetse flies, and, of course, the most despised and dangerous member of the fly family, the mosquito. The fly has outlived the dinosaurs and adapted to life in almost every environment on earth. With its huge compound eyes, ability to fly, flip over, and walk upside-down, it escapes even the craftiest predators. About the Author Norma Dixon is the author of Lowdown on Earthworms and is now researching the lowdown on mollusks. She has worked as a writer and a school programs guide at the Vancouver Museum and the VanDusen Botanical Gardens. Dixon lives in Vancouver.

“Dixon has been a museum guide, and her chatty, informative title, illustrated with many clear color photos and diagrams, will hook readers with its fascinating view of a fly’s ‘creepy cool world’.”—Booklist

This chameleon loves to stand out in a crowd.

Chameleon’s Colors by Chisato Tashiro

by Natascha Rosenberg

• Cloth books are great for bedtime, in the car, or at a restaurant • Soft and high-quality, this is a safe and sweet book for baby

About the Book Cuddle up for a dreamy sleep with little lamb!

“Natascha Rosenberg creates some beautiful children’s illustrations that are just the right mix of playful and energetic without coming off as weak or too strong. She also makes extremely cute plush toys.” —Illustrophile.com

A little lamb went out to play— Oh, she had a busy day! Then when night began to fall— a bedtime story, best of all— a cuddle and a dreamy sleep for a tired little sheep. About the Author Natascha Rosenberg has been illustrating children’s books since 1998. She lives in Madrid and Berlin.

• A wonderful story about the importance of being yourself • Bright and bouncy illustrations will appeal to the youngest readers

About the Book What if lions had stripes and elephants had polka dots? Chameleon is tired of constantly changing colors. He blends in wherever he goes and no one ever sees him! Hippo, however, is envious of Chameleon. He would love to be a different color. Surprisingly, all of the other animals in the jungle would, too! So, Chameleon sets to work painting stripes on the lion and polka-dots on the elephant. He uses every color and pattern under the sun. But, as the animals soon learn, changing their original appearance causes problems they never expected.  About the Author Chisato Tashiro was born in Tokyo, Japan. She studied economics at Meiji Gakuin University and later studied the history of children’s picture books at a school in Takatanobaba.

by Colleen Sydor

by Connie Brummel Crook

About the Book Lee loves setting personal records for himself—he’s obsessed with them, in fact, but he’s not interested in going public with them. Walking a marathon with his dog Santiago, bouncing a basketball for 12 hours straight—above all, he seeks to escape being ordinary. And when he’s confronted with the greatest challenge of his 13-year-old life, saving his pesky friend from certain death, the strength of his character and purpose demonstrate that he is anything but ordinary. About the Author Colleen Sydor was born and raised in Winnipeg, where she still lives with her husband and three children. She works as a writer and a floral designer.

The move is supposed to give them a fresh start, but a swath of new challenges rises to meet them as they adapt to their new surroundings. For Bonnie, settling into her new school is an uphill battle, but a series of small victories soon sets her on a path of success. When disaster strikes and her family’s last hope, a small clutch of chicks, is trampled by a rampaging sow after a storm blows their shed door open, Bonnie enters a regional spelling bee in the hopes that the cash prize will be enough to replace the lost chicks and save her family. About the Author Connie Brummel Crook has been a writer for many years, writing books primarily for young people, including The Hungry Year, Flight, Meyer’s Creek, Meyer’s Rebellion, and the Nellie McClung Trilogy.

A teenager learns that his obsession with watching the world may be keeping him from truly experiencing it.

A humorous and sensitive look at the pains, miseries, and social hazards of being a teenager.

The Dewpoint Show

Acting Up

by Barb Howard

by Ted Staunton

• In 2009, the author was awarded the Writer’s Guild of Alberta Award for Short Fiction

• Author writes stories based upon his own experiences • An excellent book for reluctant readers, particularly boys

About the Book Leonard prefers to watch the world around him—he doesn’t want to “engage” himself, as his controlling mother would put it. His observations lead him to discover that we all have our personal obsessions: he watches his mother struggle for control over her home, her family, and her garden; and he watches his father grasp at the last vestiges of his youth (with some help from a swanky Corvette). But an unlikely friendship with Vivian, the old lady next door with the hot tub, teaches Leonard that sometimes his obsession with watching people prevents him from experiencing his own life to its fullest. About the Author Barb Howard has written extensively for adults, primarily in the form of essays and short fiction. Her pieces have appeared in a number of publications, including Alberta Views, Alberta Anthology, and Freefall. Her adult novel, Whipstock, was published in 2001. The Dewpoint Show is her first novel for young adults. She lives in Bragg Creek, Alberta.

About the Book Sam Foster is six foot four, and he has learned how to slouch to make himself appear more inconspicuous and to draw less attention to himself. He is also a talented drummer with his band ADHD. While trying to figure out how to reach the levels of maturity that his parents hold out for him, he also has to deal with his anarchistic girlfriend, Martha, who loves breaking rules. On top of this, he must manage issues with alcohol, driving permits, and earning the trust of his parents when they leave him alone with his friend for a weekend. By the end of the story, Sam learns that he and his girlfriend aren’t suited for one another and that adults aren’t as mature as they let on.

Praise for Sounding Off: “Throughout the novel, Staunton once again demonstrates his facility with age-appropriate humor.”—CM Magazine

About the Author Ted Staunton has been writing since 1983, and  his debut picture book was Puddleman. Since then, he has become a popular author for children of all ages, entertaining readers with his perspective stories of childhood and family life.

A boxed set of the original versions of the first six Hardy Boys mystery stories, just as readers remember them.

Oz fans, both old and new, will delight in this long-awaited reprint of the lovingly researched guide.  

The Hardy Boys Collector’s Boxed Set

Who’s Who In Oz The Happiest Who’s Who Ever Written by Jack Snow

by Franklin W. Dixon • Oz lovers have been waiting years for this reprint • Attractive facsimile of the 1954 edition 

Praise for The Nancy Drew 75th Anniversary Boxed Set: “It was gratifying to find new copies reproduced to look perfectly old. No more hunting through flea markets for worn sets to buy little girls for Christmas.”—Maureen Dowd in the New York Times

• Original versions of the well-loved and fondly remembered boys’ books, as they were first written • First six volumes of the series in a handsome slipcase

About the Book Among the most beloved, bestselling boys’ books of all time are The Hardy Boys Mystery Stories by Franklin W. Dixon. This boxed set includes the first six titles in the series: The Tower Treasure, The House on the Cliff, The Secret of the Old Mill, The Missing Chums, Hunting for Hidden Gold, and The Shore Road Mystery. All are beautiful, hardcover facsimile editions—with dust jackets—of the original books from the late 1920s. About the Author Franklin W. Dixon was the pseudonym devised by Edward Stratemeyer for the author of a series of mystery books he was developing which became the Hardy Boys series. The first book, The Tower Treasure, originally published in 1927, was written by Leslie MacFarlane who went on to write 19 more, including #2 through #16. In all, there are 58 titles in the original Hardy Boys Mysteries series published between 1927 and 1979, written by 17 different men and women. Many of the books were later revised, adding another four “Franklin W. Dixons” to the total.

About the Book This illustrated index of nearly every character that ever appeared in the first 39 Oz books is wonderful in its scope and reach. The author shares descriptions of each character, or as he calls them “informal introductions to more than 630 Oz characters—people, animals, and creatures—with hints on the parts they play.” Each character description also has a reference to the book and page number on which each character first appeared. The many black and white illustrations, by John R. Neil, Frank Kramer, and “Dirk”, give readers a delightful glimpse into the truly amazing, imaginative world of Oz.  

“Here’s a book all Oz enthusiasts can enjoy.”—Midwest Book Review, on the 1988 edition

About the Author John Frederick “Jack” Snow (1907-1956) was an American radio writer and scholar, primarily of the works of L. Frank Baum. When Baum died in 1919, the 12-year-old Snow offered to be the next Royal Historian of Oz, but was politely turned down by a staffer at Baum’s publisher, Reilly & Lee. Snow eventually wrote two Oz books: The Magical Mimics in Oz (1946) and The Shaggy Man of Oz (1949), as well as Who’s Who in Oz (1954).

A cartoon guide that introduces readers to the theory of relativity.

The Monkeyface Chronicles

The Manga Guide to Relativity

by Richard Scarsbrook

• A coming-of-age novel that deals with bullying and unusual family dynamics • Author has been nominated for several awards, including the CLA Young Adult Book Award for his book Cheeseburger Subversive, and the Ontario Library Association’s White Pine Award.

Born with an extreme facial deformity, he became the object of attention. Though diagnosed with Van der Woulde Syndrome, his classmates, especially the bullies, would just call him “Monkeyface”. Philip’s aphorism-toting grandfather used to say “Shallow men believe in luck. Strong men believe in cause and effect,” and Philip is about to embark on a life journey of payback that has everything to do with cause and effect. About the Author Richard Scarsbrook has had his fiction and poetry published in numerous literary journals, magazines, and anthologies. He lives in Toronto, Ontario.

• Gently introduces young readers to the complex concept of relativity • Readies readers with an overview of classical Newtonian physics • Stresses why understanding relativity is fundamental to understanding modern physics

About the Book This latest offering in No Starch Press’s highly acclaimed EduManga series uses Japanese comics, clear explanations, and a charming storyline to gently introduce readers to relativity. The book follows the plight of student body president Minagi, who’s been sentenced to advanced physics summer school by his creepy principal. Fortunately, Minagi has the gorgeous Miss Uraga to teach him everything. The book begins with an overview of classical Newtonian physics before delving into Einstein’s greatest discoveries. Readers will learn why relativity is fundamental to understanding modern physics, how the Pythagorean theorem can explain time dilation, how to understand inertial frames of reference, how motion can affect an object’s mass and length, and even how gravity can bend light. The book also explores the difference between general and special relativity, the equivalence principle, and the relationship between energy and mass, among other related topics.
