Roy Best’s 1931 picture book, featuring his glorious full-color illustrations, returns!

The Picture Story Book of Peter Pan by Roy Best

• A classic story, not available in this format for many years • Features exquisite and unique illustrations • Both children and parents will enjoy reading a storybook version of the beloved play

About the Book J.M. Barrie’s 1904 play Peter Pan and Wendy  (and its subsequent variations) about the adventures of a boy who won’t grow up and his experiences with Tinker Bell and the Darling children has challenged and delighted illustrators for more than a century.  It isn’t often that an illustrator can sustain emotional and visual impact through nearly 100 pages, but here, Roy Best manages it. These illustrations, though more than 80 years old, seem preternaturally modern in their coloring and style. This Peter Pan is vibrant—more Disney than Arthur Rackham—but nothing is cheap or commercial. Barrie’s tale is given its full due both visually and in the text, adapted from Barrie’s play.   About the Author Roy Best was an American artist known for his pin-up illustrations. In 1931 he published his best-known book, The Peter Pan Picture Book. In the early forties, Best was hired by Brown and Bigelow; the publisher of Gil Elvgren, Norman Rockwell, Maxfield Parrish, Cassius Marcellus Coolidge (“Dogs Playing Poker”); and many other successful artists. He went on to a lucrative and successful career.    

From the Book: “In one of the nicest nurseries in the world, there were beds for three young people called John Napoleon, and Wendy Moira Angela, and Michael, the children of Mr. and Mrs. Darling. The nursery was wide and airy, with a large window, and a bright fire with a high fire-guard round it, and a big clock, and prettily colored nursery-rhyme pictures over the walls.”

The legend of one of the most terrifying creatures to be found in traditional Inuit stories

The Giant Bear An Inuit Folktale by Jose Angutingunrik and Eva Widermann

• A traditional tale told by a gifted storyteller and respected elder • Addresses the themes of survival and protecting one’s home and family • Introduces a unique Arctic mythological creature

From the book: This bear was a nanurluk, and this hole in the ice was the nanurluk’s aglu, an opening that it kept clear of ice so that it could breathe. But breathing was not the only use the bear had for this aglu. It would also use this hole to climb out of the water and onto the ice to hunt. The man knew that, no matter how capable a hunter he might be, facing a nanurluk head-on would be very dangerous. He would have to devise a plan to protect his camp.

About the Book One of the most terrifying creatures to be found in traditional Inuit stories is the nanurluk, a massive bear the size of an iceberg that lives under the sea ice. Its monstrous size and ice-covered fur make it an almost impenetrable foe. But when a lone hunter spots the breathing hole of the nanurluk on the sea ice near his iglu, he quickly uses his quick thinking and excellent hunting skills to hatch a plan to outsmart the deadly bear. About the Author Jose Angutingunrik is an elder and storyteller from Kugaaruk, Nunavut. Eva Widermann is a graduate of the graphic design program of the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich, Germany. She lives in Cork, Ireland.

From the book: The stranger had a smile on his bearded face, and his eyes were neither threatening nor fearful. Avataq stepped towards the man hesitantly. Was he hurt? Why was he on his knees? But as Avataq moved closer to him, he realized that the stranger was not on his knees. He was only as tall as Avataq’s knees! The man carried a tiny spear, only as big as Avataaq’s forearm.

• Laughing Elephant’s shaped picture books are strong sellers • Colorful illustrations appeal to those who love vintage imagery as well as a general audience

About the Book This wonderful alphabet and counting book was originally published in 1943. Ethel Hays’ colorful and exuberant illustrations perfectly capture the joys of young childhood as rosy-cheeked children and beautifully dressed animals roller skate, play the xylophone, dig in the sand, and are utterly charming on every page.    About the Author Ethel Hays (1892-1989) was born in Billings, Montana. She attended art school in Paris with the intention of becoming a painter, but World War I interfered. A stint of teaching drawing to soldiers led her to cartooning, where she found great success with a series of flapper comic strips. By the late 1930s, Hays transitioned into a successful career illustrating children’s books.

Kumak’s River A Tall Tale from the Far North Illustrated by Michael Bania From the Book: “As the waters sweep through his village, Kumak and his family take refuge on the roof of his house. ‘Look!’ said Kumak’s wife, ‘There goes Uncle Aglu’s oil drum.’ Look!’ said Kumak’s wife’s mother, ‘There goes Aana Lulu’s fish tubs and net floats!’ ‘Look!’ said Kumak’s sons and daughters, ‘There goes Little Nate’s basketball!’  Just as Kumak and his family are feeling all is lost, ‘just like someone pulled a plug in a bathtub’, the water recedes.”  

• Features authentic details about the Arctic throughout the art and text • The follow-up to Kumak’s House, a 2003 Children’s Book Council Notable Trade Book in Social Studies

About the Book On a beautiful Arctic morning, Kumak looks out the window of his house at the sun rising over the frozen river. “Ahhh, spring,” he says to his family. “The days are long, the nights are short, and the ice is still hard. Good day for fish.” Eager to give Uncle Aglu’s amazing hooking stick a try, Kumak packs up his family and heads out to go ice fishing. “Good day for fish!” they all agree. Hapless Kumak is the only one in his family without fish until the tug at the other end of his line incites a mighty battle. About the Author For almost 20 years, Michael Bania lived above the Arctic Circle. While residing in various Inupiat villages, she actively participated in the local culture and developed an understanding for a distinct way of life.

Today she lives in Wrangell, Alaska.

A great introduction for children—and adults— to the world of modern art.

Eames Memory Game by Charles and Ray Eames designed by Gloria Fowler

• Improves memory skills • Bright, colorful pieces appeal to young children • Includes 36 of the Eamses’ timeless designs

About the Book “Toys are not really as innocent as they look. Toys and games are preludes to serious ideas.”—Charles Eames The Eames Memory Game features the iconic designs of Charles and Ray Eames. These modern masters are considered the pre-eminent pioneers of mid-century design. The Eames’ designs are featured here in a welldesigned game for kids of all ages as well as adults.

“…the Eameses were among the best furniture designers of the 20th century. They didn’t just do furniture, however. The couple designed everything from toys, games, houses, books, and movie sets to leg splints for the United States Navy.”—The New York Times

How to play: For younger children, play with nine pairs or fewer. For a more challenging game, geared toward older children and adults, play with all 36 pairs. Mix and spread cards face down. Players take turns flipping any two cards up. If cards match, player continues. If cards do not match, player’s turn ends, and cards remain in the same position. When all cards are matched, the player with the most pairs wins. About the Author Charles and Ray Eames are among the most important and influential designers of the 20th century. Renowned as visionaries, their groundbreaking contributions to architecture, furniture design, exhibition design, photography, film, toys, and products are highly regarded. Their home in Pacific Palisades and their countless iconic furniture designs, including the seminal Eames Lounge chair, are recognized as some of the most significant contributions to Modernism.  About the Designer Gloria Fowler is the design director for AMMO books and has created a growing line of kids’ books and products, starting with the Charley Harper series. She is also a faculty member at Art Center College of Design.

A biracial girl struggles to understand who she is through her black and white ancestry.

Black, White, Other In Search of Nina Armstrong by Joan Steinau Lester

• Specifically targets the experience of growing up biracial • Offers a new take on the perennial teen struggle of identity and independence • The story of a slave in the South, in parallel to the story in the present day adds dimension and deepens the message of the story

“The simple contrapuntal narrative of Sarah Armstrong’s escaping slavery distinguishes the book emotionally and psychologically, raising it above other issue-oriented YA novels. Lester writes with social sensitivity and an ear for teen language and concerns. This is engaging treatment of a challenging subject that comes with little precedent. ”—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review “Teens will be caught by the alternating stories and, yes, by the messages about the cruel cliques and prejudices, then and now, which will make for great group discussion. The extensive back matter includes questions, follow-up activities, a glossary, and an annotated bibliography.”—Booklist

About the Book As a biracial teen, Nina is accustomed to a life of varied hues—mochacolored skin, ringed brown hair streaked with red, a darker brother, a black father, a white mother. When her parents decide to divorce, the rainbow of Nina’s existence is reduced to a much starker reality. Feeling stranded in the nowhere land between racial boundaries, and struggling for personal independence and identity, Nina turns to the story of her great-great-grandmother’s escape from slavery. Is there direction in the tale of her ancestor? Can Nina build her own compass when landmarks from her childhood stop guiding the way? About the Author Joan Steinau Lester is a Bellwether Prize finalist and the author of three previous books, including Fire In My Soul, a civil rights biography of Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton. The former Executive Director of the Equity Institute, a national diversity consulting firm, she is a frequent NPR commentator and print columnist.

A unique novel that masterfully blends the historical and archaeological record with medieval Norse beliefs.

Under the Mound by Cynthia Heinrichs

• A masterful weaving of Norse mythology and Orkney archaeology • Perfect for readers who like to delve into a long book and become immersed in another time and place

About the Book During the Yule season of 1153, Malcolm mac Alasdair is sent to serve the half-Scots, half-Viking Earl of Orkney, who is on a quest to regain his earldom from a treacherous cousin. Malcolm is an artistic boy with no knack for warfare and is certain that he will only hinder the young earl and get himself killed in the bargain. His father’s reason for sending him on the dangerous venture does nothing to allay his fears: in a vision, he has seen Malcolm go to Orkney with Earl Harald. But the vision is incomplete. He has not seen Malcolm return. About the Author Cynthia Heinrichs was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She majored in psychology at UBC where she earned a Bachelor’s degree and discovered a love of history. She has worked as a nanny, an art restoration assistant, an English teacher in South Korea, and a writing tutor, but her favorite jobs are aunt, vagabond, and writer. She lives in Vancouver, British Columbia.

“Using Norse sagas, runes carved on an ancient Orkney tomb, and generous doses of imagination, Heinrichs has crafted a long, complex story that is part historical fiction, part mystery, and part fantasy.”—John Wilson,  Quill and Quire

A new middle-grade novel from critically acclaimed author Beth Goobie.

Jason’s Why by Beth Goobie

• Portrays a dysfunctional family dynamic • Addresses confronting and dealing with fears • Examines issues of trust

About the Book Told in first person, Jason’s Why relates the story of a nine-year-old boy who has been sent to a treatment center by his mother because she can’t handle him any longer. Jason is afraid that his mother is going to leave him in the home forever, and he is afraid of trusting these strange new adults in his life. He’s also worried about how his sister is doing at home without him. Jason soon begins to realize that the people in the group home are not going to hurt him but care about his welfare, and that the principal in his new school is also a figure he can trust to care for his best interests. About the Author Beth Goobie is an award-winning poet and writer. Her novel Before Wings was chosen by young readers for the Best Books list of the American Library Association. She is the author of several novels for young readers including Mission Impossible, The Lottery, Before Wings, and Born Ugly. She  lives in Saskatchewan, Canada.

Praise for Born Ugly: “This taut thriller showcases the award-winning Canadian author’s gift for creating memorable teen characters who confront tough issues alone—in this case, teen bullying, portrayed in gritty, claustrophobic detail by its victim. High-school junior Shirley Rutz knows she’s ugly—she sees it in the mirror, her mother and pretty sister reinforce the message and her classmates hammer it home. … Working-class, alcoholic Shir is no swan in ugly-duckling disguise, but despite the rotten hand life’s dealt her, she’s got heart and courage and a stubborn refusal to give up that will keep readers rooting for her.”—Kirkus Reviews

For six days we made our way through the snow. It was a perilous and ice-cold journey. There were many times when I thought we wouldn’t make it.”

Hear stories from children around the world who are affected by climate change.

Help, My Igloo Is Melting! Four Stories about Children from Far Away by Natalie Righton and Ton Koene

From the Book: Jeremy Ukuqtunnuaq (10 Years old) is an Inuit who lives at the North Pole... During the summer, in July and August, almost all of the snow in town melts. “When it’s summer we no longer sleep in igloos when we hunt, since there is very little snow to build one. And when there is enough snow, the sun melts the igloo too quickly,” explains Jeremy. Last year during summer vacation he went hunting with his father and uncle for three weeks. “We slept in a tent made from carribou hide and at night we cooked our food on a fire.” Jeremy’s father says they camp in tents earlier and earlier in the year. “Until a couple of years ago igloos melted in July, but today they disappear as early as June.”

• A hot topic addressed from a child’s point of view • Perfect for science education, especially on environmental concerns • Authors have worked with Doctors Without Borders and are authorities on social justice issues  About the Book We all know the climate is changing. But what does that mean when you live in the Arctic? Or in the rainforest in South America? The authors visited children in areas where climate change is already affecting their daily lives. They met Jemery in Gjoa Haven, Halima in Ethiopia, Toei in Funafala, and Tepkatsie in Brazil. Halima’s area is drying out, Toei is threatened by the rising water. What are the impacts? Here are just two: the ice on the North Pole is melting, so the polar bears can’t hunt anymore, and in Brazil more and more trees are cut down, causing erosion, pollution, and more devastating consequences.

From the New York Times-bestselling author of Think comes a provocative, hard-hitting examination that asks the question: “Do we live in a boy-hostile culture?”   

Swagger 10 Urgent Rules for Raising Boys in an Era of Failing Schools, Mass Joblessness, and Thug Culture by Lisa Bloom

• Author’s previous book, Think, has shipped more than 23,000 copies • The paperback edition of Think will be published in April, one month prior to Swagger  

About the Book Though a wakeup call for parents about the real world our boys inhabit right now, Swagger also offers solutions. From how to teach a boy humility (the swagger anti-venom), to “making your home a reading mecca,” creating an expectation of college graduation, and how to teach boys to be critical of the media onslaught in their lives, the book is packed with research-proven, parent-tested, teacher-approved practical solutions, delivered in the author’s trademark no-nonsense, often humorous, take-charge voice.   About the Author Lisa Bloom is an award-winning journalist, legal analyst, and trial attorney who is currently the CBS News and CNN Legal Analyst, appearing frequently on The Early Show, and on CNN and HLN prime time shows. She is also a regular legal expert on The Dr. Phil Show. She lives in Los Angeles, CA.

“Swagger is essential guidance for any parent of boys. It’s brutally honest, meticulously researched, and boldly impassioned. It reveals a truth that is hiding in plain sight all around us, calling for our wisdom and commitment and love. I couldn’t put it down.”—Marianne Williamson, New York Times-bestselling author of A Return to Love. “Lisa Bloom is a woman of brilliance, boldness, and beauty. One of the smartest and most erudite people in the American popular culture, you debate her on TV at your own risk.”—Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, New York Times-bestselling author of 10 Conversations You Need to Have with Your Children.

A compilation of favorite stories from the Laughing and Loving with Autism books, sharing the great qualities that folks with autism have to offer.

A Lifetime of Laughing and Loving with Autism A Compilation of Your Favorite Stories, Plus a Few New Ones! by R. Wayne Gilpin

• Offers a much-needed, lighter view of autism for those first confronted with the diagnosis • Finally, all of the best of the Laughing and Loving stories, (along with some new ones!), are together in one compilation

About the Book This compilation of the first three Laughing and Loving with Autism books will warm the hearts of those who know and love a child with autism. This “Best of” book contains readers’ favorite stories, along with some brand-new ones.  The concept for Laughing and Loving came when R. Wayne Gilpin realized how much people enjoyed the stories about his son, Alex, and his unique view of the world.  This “light” view of autism contrasted sharply with all of the technical manuals, or doom and gloom stories that were in print at the time, so Gilpin decided that this view needed to be shared. As a publisher, he printed up 500 copies and took them to the National Autism Society of America meeting in 1993. All 500 were gone within two days. The world needed this kind of book then, and it still does.

Before that, he was publishing car repair guides and law books, but his son’s diagnosis of autism rerouted his career path. Gilpin joined the Autism Society of America and was voted president in 1987. To bring a little light into the autism community, he compiled and published a book called Laughing and Loving with Autism. It was the first book to really capture the positive aspects of these kids, and it gave other parents hope. He lives in Fort Worth, Texas.
