Picture Books The Secret Lives of Princesses

May 2010

by Philippe Lechermeier, illustrated by Rébecca Dautremer

$19.95 (Canada $25.95) Hardcover with Jacket 978-1-4027-6677-0

Go beyond Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella! Some princesses are well-known to all children—but others, equally magical (and sometimes a lot funnier) have remained anonymous, mysterious, and far from the fairy-tale crowd.

Ages 7 and UP 96 pages (all in color) 10 5/8 x 11 7/8 JUVENILE FICTION/General

Now these captivating ladies are finally stepping out of the shadows where they’ve remained hidden for far too long. With wit, sublime humor, and beautiful art, The Secret Lives of Princesses introduces a bevy of royal daughters to the court of young readers. While it alludes to some of their more famous sisters, this large and lusciously illustrated compendium presents such unique and unforgettable characters as the petite Princess Claire Voyant, who can see very far into tomorrow (but muddles her predictions); Princess Oblivia, who forgets everything and misses all her appointments; Princess Tangra-La, who does any dance that comes her way; and Princess Babbling Brooke, who chatters on about everything and nothing. Plus, you’ll learn about such princessy matters as the language of fans; coats of arms; and how not to offend dangerous fairies who cast evil spells.

Carton Quantity: 12

Poetic, often humorous, and always enchanting, this is the perfect collection for princess-loving girls who long for more than just the traditional fairy tale.

 Little  girls love princesses—and this is right for all ages, including the slightly older child who’s outgrown fairy tales  L ush, eye-catching art and a bold, vivid design, with great variety on every page  S ly, funny, and slightly wry in tone, kids and their parents will enjoy reading it together

Picture Books Welcome MERCER MAYER and his beloved, best-selling LITTLE CRITTER® to the Sterling list! Mercer Mayer is an American icon, and so is his Little Critter series —and now it’s back in print! More than 250,000 copies each of these three titles were sold in their original editions, making them some of the most popular and enduring children’s books published in the last 50 years. Featuring fun lift-the-flaps and cuddly characters, these engaging tales will continue to enchant kids for years to come. ®

Lift-the-flap books

 Mercer Mayer has an enormous reputation as a storyteller and illustrator  Little Critter books are beloved by parents and educators alike and perfect for gift-giving  Each book features one large lift-the-flap per spread—ten per book  A selection of Scholastic Book Club

About the Author MERCER MAYER attended the Honolulu Academy of Arts. Although he discovered illustration for children early on, his professor discouraged this career choice because he did not believe that Mayer would be able to make a living at it. But after years of pursuing other work, he returned to his first love, and received his first big break when a family friend gave him the names of some of the most reputable children’s book editors. Mayer set out with a bag filled with his sketches and doodles, and luck was with him: he was asked to illustrate The Gillygoofang for The Dial Press and Outside My Window for Harper and Row. The first book that was truly his own was A Boy, a Dog, and a Frog (The Dial Press, 1967) followed by his classic picture book There’s a Nightmare in My Closet a year later. In 1976, he joined Golden Publishing and soon began publishing his Little Critter® and Little Monster® books. These series became very successful and contain the work for which he is best known.

No More Blanket for Lambkin! by Bernette Ford and Sam Williams

Touch and feel blanket on cover

Giving up a security blanket can be very hard for a child—but since it was first released a year ago, No More Blanket for Lambkin has helped little ones make that developmental leap. Now, this delightful story is in the popular board format and with an irresistibly appealing touch-and-feel feature: Lambkin’s soft blanket on the front cover. Although little Lambkin has lots of toys, books, and pretty clothes to dress up in, all she really wants is her blanket. She never lets it go—until Ducky comes over for a playdate and gently helps Lambkin give up her beloved blankie and join in the fun.

A Read-and-Play Program for Babies and Toddlers Babies have amazing brains that soak up knowledge, doubling in size during the first 12 months. Every time they receive stimulation—through sight and sound, smell and touch, love and cuddles—they become smarter and more aware of the world around them. According to the National Commission on Reading, reading aloud to children is “the single most important intervention” that parents can make in ensuring their child’s later reading success. Carefully leveled by age and ability, the Begin Smart™ program will expand the emerging motor and cognitive skills of children from birth to three years.

Board Books Little Scribbles, and Hasbro games, make every day more fun.

What a combination: Sterling’s popular activity books—packaged with crayons right in the front cover— and Hasbro’s best-selling word games: BOGGLE Jr. and SCRABBLE™ JUNIOR!  Little Scribbles titles have sold more than 82,000 copies  Based on two best-selling and well-known games

Little Scribbles: BOGGLE Jr.: Recess!

Both books include 5 crayons plus wipe-off pages!

Little Scribbles: SCRABBLE™ JUNIOR: Pete’s Petting Zoo

Find the hidden recess words that rhyme! All kids have to do is look, because concealed in each picture are all the letters they need to play BOGGLE Jr. and complete the phrases.

Oh, no! When Pete arrives at the petting zoo, he’s shocked to see that all the animals’ names on the signposts are misspelled. How will the visitors know which is which?

As they solve, little scribblers can have a blast coloring in slides, swings, and all the things that add up to a super recess.

Kids can help make everything right by unscrambling the letters and correcting the signs. It’s a clever variation of SCRABBLE that helps improve young readers’ spelling even as they’re having fun. Plus, children can enjoy coloring in the pictures!

Board Books Raindrops

A Shower of Colors by Chiêu Anh Urban, illustrated by Viviana Garofoli Look—a rainbow of colors is showering down on the animals!

April 2010

This very simple, beautiful, and innovative concept book shows children how primary colors magically blend to create secondary ones. Die-cut raindrops with a see-through shaded acetate appear throughout; when the acetates are layered on top of each other, a new color emerges! So it’s easy to see—and understand—how blue and red make purple; red and yellow make orange; blue and yellow make green....and how, all together, they create a gorgeous rainbow!

$8.95 (Canada $11.50) Board 978-1-4027-6900-9

The delightful art showcases a cute and cuddly-looking group of animals trying to escape the rain—and each one has an adorable accessory, be it a pinwheel, fancy hat, or bright umbrella.

Sterling

 Features die-cuts with see-through colored acetates throughout  A clever and fun way to teach children color basics

Puppies, Pussycats & Other Friends

by Gyo Fujikawa

by Gyo Fujikawa

It’s play day for Gyo Fujikawa’s adorable group of toddlers! They’re sliding and hiding, running and splashing, tumbling and wrestling, and having a blast. But as night falls and the moon rises, it’s good to be quiet, too.

“Wouldn’t you love to have a furry, fuzzy, feathery, or slithery smooth friend?” What an irresistible combination: a menagerie of Gyo Fujikawa’s most adorable animals with their human companions! Mrs. Cat and her kitten family parade with a little girl, fuzzy puppies hug and snuggle, a gentle fawn comes by to say hello, and an elephant gives a small boy a ride while carrying another child on her trunk. A charming final picture shows several children with some small furry and feathery friends.

It’s an imaginative invitation to fun, games, and friendship that no child can resist!

Kids can count fruit in Cézanne’s Still Life with Apples, pat six fancy hats in Degas’ The Millinery Shop, feel the bumpy bark in Edouard Vuillard’s Two Schoolchildren, and touch blue ribbon bows in Renoir’s The Swing.

Sometimes I Like to Curl Up in a Ball:

I Know a Rhino:

“Buoyant and darling, charming and fun. This simple picture book will keep kids hopping.”—School Library Journal

“[A] vivid rhyming picture book. The scenarios are all bright fun, and the ending is particularly satisfying. This will be a nice read-aloud for young children; the large print and easy poetry will also entice brandnew readers to try the pages on their own.”—Booklist

“A repertoire of comic expressions worthy of Nathan Lane. In the middle of the book the friends hold a race and it’s clear Fuge relishes the opportunity to show each sprinter striving for a highly idiosyncratic personal best.”—Publishers Weekly

“Fuge’s bright, warmhearted and silly illustrations fill each spread. . . . The playful, rhythmic text and bold pictures make this a surefire storytime hit. The magic is brought home in a comforting, loving bedtime scene.”—School Library Journal

The Squirrel’s Birthday and Other Parties “One of the strangest and most delightful children’s imports I’ve seen in a long, long time…[and] a book that feels like an old friend the first time you turn one of its pages.” –School Library Journal “Two of the loveliest and most charming collections of stories I have EVER had the pleasure of reading. Think A.A. Milne’s stories of Winnie the Pooh and Christopher Robin, but a shade quirkier – perfect for anyone old enough to sit and listen, and perfect as family read-alouds.” –Publishers Weekly

The Story of Doctor Dolittle #5: Doctor Dolittle and the Pirates

The Story of Doctor Dolittle #6: Doctor Dolittle Goes Home

Come to a snowy land far away and meet an Inuit boy named Quiquern. He dreams of becoming a great hunter, but everyone just laughs at him because he’s so small. Then a terrible storm threatens his village with starvation—and Quiquern and his little sled dog may be the only ones who can save the day.

Once upon a time, there was a place called Seal Haven where all the Arctic seals lived—including a very special pup named Kotick. No one was faster than he at swimming, diving, and catching a fish. But when the hunters arrive, this brave little seal has to face a dangerous challenge: finding a good home where the seals can be safe.

by Hugh Lofting

Pirates, sharks, and a leaky boat, too! There’s danger ahead for Doctor Dolittle and his brave animal crew as they try to return home to Puddleby. Will the doctor find a way to outwit the Barbary Dragon and his band of dangerous sea brigands? It won’t be easy, but with the help of a few good friends, they just might!

Now that they’ve defeated the pirates, Doctor Dolittle is sure they’ll have smooth sailing to Puddleby. But wait…what’s that knock, knock, knocking on the ship? It looks as if a very unexpected guest is on board: a little boy! And he doesn’t know the name of his island home. How will they ever get him back to his family?

Treasure Island #5: Adventure at Sea

Treasure Island #6: A Pirate Adventure

The Wind in the Willows #5: Sneaky Toad

The Wind in the Willows #6: Restless Rat

When treasure-seeking pirates threaten to steal Jim’s ship, leaving him and his friends stranded on the island, he knows what he has to do: cut the rope that ties the craft and run it aground. But then strong winds start whipping up the waves, putting Jim and his little boat in danger. How will he escape from his adventure at sea?

What’s more frightening than a group of greedy pirates eager to grab some gold? A spook! When Long John Silver and his men capture Jim and force him to march to the buried treasure, what they find terrifies them all: not only is the treasure gone, but a ghost of pirates past seems to reappear. But is the spirit real—or just a trick?

What a sneaky Toad! His friends want him to be careful—but he just wants to have fun. So Toad escapes from under Badger’s watchful eye, thinking he’s so very clever. What will happen now? One thing’s for sure: where Toad goes, trouble follows….

Winter is coming soon and the birds are flying south. The mice are moving out. Everyone seems to be leaving the river, and Rat is feeling restless. Will he leave his home and friends, too?

Classic Starts™: Moby-Dick Retold from the Herman Melville original

When young Pip meets a convict out in the marsh one Christmas Eve, he has no idea that his life is about to change— forever. The amazing events following that encounter have made Great Expectations a must-read. Now, young readers can enjoy Dickens’s engrossing story in this simplified, yet thrilling, version.

“Call me Ishmael.” These three famous words begin one of America’s most epic novels, a tale of one obsessed captain and an elusive white whale named Moby-Dick. The massive original, however, can be very hard for young readers to navigate. This beautifully abridged version will thrill children and whet their appetite for the complete work.

So starts Mark Twain’s classic tale about a boy’s life in a small town on the Mississippi, which has become an all-time favorite both in America and around the world.

Paul Bunyan, Pecos Bill, The Jumping Frog, Davy Crockett, Johnny Appleseed, Sweet Betsy, and Many Others Adapted and illustrated by Caldecott-winner Tony Palazzo Welcome to the world of the American tall tale!

July 2010

A long out-of-print treasure returns! This loving and vividly illustrated celebration of America conjures up a time when tales were truly TALL. Set when the country was young and its horizons seemed endless, these epic stories portray a marvelous landscape where outsize legends grew and thrived. Sure to stir the imagination with its humor and wonderfully evocative illustrations, Animal Folk Tales of America features such celebrated figures as Pecos Bill riding a mountain lion; Davy Crockett getting outfoxed by a raccoon; and Paul Bunyan dealing with a mythological creature called a Rumptifusel. As author Tony Palazzo observed, these winning characters were fully “of the new land and the new land loved them. Their great adventures and monumental deeds will forever remain in America’s collective memory.”

$12.95 (Canada $16.95) Hardcover with Jacket 978-1-4027-7322-8

The legends include:

• The Jumping Frog • A Tale of Pecos Bill • Paul Bunyan and the Little Blue Ox • Sweet Betsy from Pike • Johnny Appleseed • Davy Crockett Trees a Wolf • And many more!

About the Author Tony (Anthony) Palazzo studied at Columbia and New York Universities, and went on to work as an art director for Esquire, Coronet, Apparel Arts, and Colliers, in addition to teaching advertising design at the Pratt Institute. In 1937 he designed The Villages Are the Heart of Spain by John Dos Passos, and in the 1940s he began illustrating children’s and young adult books. He received a Caldecott Honor Award in 1947 for his art for Timothy Turtle by Al Graham. By 1949 he decided to write and illustrate his own children’s books, with such titles as Suzie the Cat, Charley the Horse, and many others. Tony Palazzo died in 1970.

Fiction & Literature The Canterbury Tales (No Fear)

The Scarlet Letter (No Fear)

Why be frightened of the most wonderful collection of tales ever written? No Fear: The Canterbury Tales makes it simple for students to love Chaucer’s masterpiece in all its humor, bawdiness, and poignancy. It features the original text on the left-hand page, side-byside with an easy-to-understand translation on the right. In addition, there is a complete list of characters with descriptions and plenty of helpful commentary.

Have you ever tried to read The Scarlet Letter but realized midway through the second sentence that you were already lost? No Fear: The Scarlet Letter will change all that. No need to worry about losing the thread anymore: whenever Hawthorne’s sentences become too convoluted to follow, or you can’t figure out exactly what he’s talking about, simply look across at the right-hand page and a simplified, modernized text—using the kind of English we actually speak today—will set you back on track. Soon you’ll be reading Hawthorne’s own words fearlessly—and actually enjoying it.

 Part of a very successful series  The Canterbury Tales is a classic of literature, but the middle English makes it difficult to read; this helps students understand every nuance

 Part of a very successful series  The Scarlet Letter is a required book in many high school and university English classes, and this will help students understand Hawthorne’s classic novel

Art for Kids: Cartooning

The Only Cartooning Book You’ll Ever Need to Be the Artist You’ve Always Wanted to Be by Art Roche Any child who can make a stick figure can learn to create funny cartoons—and this enjoyably illustrated guide tells them exactly how. Written by professional cartoonist Art Roche, it gives kids lots of hands-on opportunities to turn their creative ideas into delightfully drawn reality. Roche encourages budding artists to develop a personal vision, rather than trace or copy someone else’s style; he also includes plenty of information that other children’s how-to books overlook, including advice on writing jokes, composing panels, and getting published.

It takes a fun, easy approach that’s just right for young beginners, showing them how to read written music and play master chords.

From very practical to just-for-fun, The Girl Mechanic Goes Outdoors offers a playful selection of the magazine’s most creative projects and tips.

Ultimate Puzzle Challenge: Pencil Frenzy

Spot the Differences & More! by Adam Ritchey

by Helene Hovanec, illustrated by Gary LaCoste

Photo puzzles are all the rage, but this selection of images outdoes them all! From colorful tractors to adorable puppies and kittens, from breathtaking landscapes to stunning architecture, these pictures are truly amazing, with unparalleled color and detail. Looking through them to find the small variations doesn’t just challenge the brain; it pleases the eye. And, with four levels of difficulty—Novice, Challenger, Expert, and Grand Champion—there are puzzles for every solver!

About the Author Adam Ritchey is a graphic artist, writer, photographer, and musician. Over the last decade, he has worked extensively with digital graphics and imagery. Ritchey is also a game inventor. His most recent game, “Skybridge,” is available in over 60 countries. He lives in Fayetteville, Arkansas, where he enjoys hiking, camping and spending time with his son, Jackson.

Kids will have a blast taking this challenge! That’s because Helene Hovanec, whose My First Puzzles books have become a huge success, has created another fantastic series featuring problem-solving games for seven-tonine-year-olds. Pencil Frenzy includes tons of fun puzzles, like picture crosswords, fill-in-thegrid challenges, spot the difference, riddles, code breaking, and other brainteasers. Like Hovanec’s other books, this has an educational slant that will be popular with parents and teachers—but kids will love it, too.

Why THESE are better and more eye-popping than other photo puzzle collections: •R  ather than just two pictures to compare, some puzzles have five or more photos •T  here are “jigsaws,” with scrambled photos to put in order •G  ridded photos contain elements that don’t belong – find them! •T  here are boxes on each page for keeping score And more braintwisting fun!

Over 70 Juice and Smoothie Recipes for Kids of All Ages by Wendy Sweetser

Marjorie and Brent Wilson’s classic guide for teachers and parents is now expanded and updated! Using hundreds of real examples, this new version breaks children’s art into three types: when the children draw on their own, influenced by peers and popular culture; when the teacher initiates playful and gamelike drawing; and when adults and kids draw together to develop new visual worlds.

Sure, we want our kids to eat healthier, but how? This book answers that common parental question with an assortment of super-healthy yet delicious drinks that kids will love! These vitaminpacked treats incorporate a broad range of fruits and vegetables, but in flavors and textures that are “child-friendly.” There are drinks for every meal, as well as snacks, quick pick-me-ups, and even some calming beverages that are ideal for bedtime. Each recipe includes a nutritional note that discusses the benefits of a particular ingredient, providing information that parents can use every day.

The Wilsons offer suggestions to help children expand their artistic abilities and imagination, including creating narrative drawings about themselves, their families, their friends, and their lives.
