“I had that familiar conviction that life was
beginning over again with the summer.”
—F. Scott Fitzgerald

Summertime
Edited by Joanne Dugan

Summer is the best season of all, with its long days, blue
skies, and endless horizons. Summertime collects more than
100 photos that capture the essence of the season from
such highly acclaimed photographers as Joel Meyerowitz,
Martin Parr, and Peter Marlow. Quotes from luminaries intermingle with dreamy pictures—sandy toes, empty docks, the
verdant meadow—that instantly evoke the perfect summer
moment. A jacketed hardcover, Summertime is casual,
elegant, and ideally sized for the summer cottage coffee
table—a choice gift for weekend hosts, or those who long
for an escape to their favorite season all year round.
Joanne Dugan is a photographer, author, and faculty member of New
York’s International Center of Photography and the Fine Arts Work
Center in Providence, Rhode Island. She lives in New York City.

This Is Ridiculous This Is Amazing
Parenthood in 71 Lists • By Jason Good

Blogging sensation and family man Jason Good delivers a
laugh-out-loud reminder that everything is easier and more
fun when approached with a sense of humor—especially
parenting. Each list captures a perfect (or perfectly terrible)
aspect of parenthood while wholeheartedly embracing
every moment: “You Deserve a Break” offers ideas for
downtime, such as giving blood and untangling cords,
while “Self-Help from a Three-Year-Old” collects such
wisdom as “If you fall down, stay down. Someone will pick
you up eventually.” Sweet, sincere, and oh-so-true, this is
the ideal gift for parents who could use a laugh. And isn’t
that every single one of them?
Jason Good is a writer, comedian, family man, and the blogger
behind JasonGood.net and the viral posts “3 Minutes Inside the
Head of my 2-Year-Old” and “46 Reasons My Three-Year-Old
Might Be Freaking Out.” He lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

“She was gracious, elegant in the simplest way, and had
a style that I will always think of as New York.”
—From the introduction by Nan A. Talese

New York Jackie
Pictures from Her Life in the City
Edited by Bridget Watson Payne • Introduction by Nan A. Talese

As familiar as we are with images of Jacqueline Kennedy
Onassis, the charming former first lady, fewer know the
dynamic woman who called New York City home. Shortly
after JFK’s assassination in 1964, Jackie moved to Manhattan and lived there for the next three decades. This intimate
collection of photographs celebrates her life in the city as a
mother, book editor, style icon, and most of all, a New
Yorker. Eating ice cream with her kids on Fifth Avenue,
working with authors at Doubleday Books, riding her bike
through Central Park—these images capture the real-life joy,
creative passion, and effortless grace of New York Jackie.
Bridget Watson Payne is a San Francisco–based book editor.
Nan A. Talese is the senior vice president of Doubleday as well as
the publisher and editorial director of her eponymous imprint there.
She lives in New York City.

The Vogue Factor

Eat Pretty

The Inside Story of Fashion’s Most Illustrious Magazine
By Kirstie Clements

Nutrition for Beauty, Inside and Out • By Jolene Hart, CHC, AADP

This addictive tell-all exposes the cutthroat culture of the
world’s most revered fashion masthead. Kirstie Clements
started at the front desk answering phones for Vogue
Australia. Years of determination and risk-taking landed
her at editor in chief. This is the story of her rise to the
top; of photo shoots in the jungles of Africa, clamoring for
a spot at Fashion Week, celebrity interviews, betrayals,
and the danger inherent in the relentless pursuit of
beauty. At once a career success story and a raw expose
on the international fashion world, The Vogue Factor
glitters with personality and is an unputdownable read for
the fashion-obsessed—and anyone who wants to know
what really happens at Vogue.

Nutrition is the fastest-rising beauty trend around the world.
Eat Pretty simplifies the latest science and presents a userfriendly program for gorgeous looks, at any age, that last a
lifetime. Buzzwords like antioxidants, biotin, and omega-3s
are explained alongside more than 85 everyday foods, each
paired with their specific beauty-boosting benefit: walnuts
for supple skin, radishes for strong nails. But healthful ingredients are just one aspect of beauty nutrition. Eat Pretty
offers a full lifestyle makeover, exploring stress management,
hormonal balance, and mindful living. Charts and lists, plus
nearly 20 recipes, make for a delicious and infinitely useful
package—in the kitchen, at the grocer, and on the go.

Balls on the Lawn

Movies R Fun!

Games to Live By
By Brooks Butler Hays • Illustrations by Jeremy Stein

A Collection of Cinematic Classics for the
Pre- ( Film) School Cinephile • By Josh Cooley

The serious leisure aficionado knows that it doesn’t take
much to transform a ho-hum afternoon into a truly memorable one—just a few balls, some mallets, maybe a horseshoe or two. The transformative nature of lawn sports takes
center stage in Balls on the Lawn, an ode to classic outdoor
activities, from the common (bocce) to the obscure (KanJam). Including the history and complete rules of 10 iconic
games, plus appropriate accompanying cocktails (serious
leisure requires serious sustenance), Balls on the Lawn will
revolutionize Saturday afternoons through the long-held
traditions, robust competition, and abundant camaraderie
of lawn sports.

Let’s face it, reading sucks . . . but movies are fun! In this
children’s picture book parody for grown-ups, Pixar writer
and artist Josh Cooley presents the most hilariously
inappropriate—that is, the best—scenes from contemporary
classic films in an illustrated, for-early-readers style.
Terrifying, sexy, and awesome scenes from such favorite
films as Alien, Rosemary’s Baby, Fargo, Basic Instinct,
Seven, The Silence of the Lambs, Apocalypse Now, The
Shining, and many more are playfully illustrated and captioned to make reading fun and exciting for kids who never
grew up. A sly celebration of the things fans love most
about these legendary films (and movies in general), this is
one book that probably should not be read at bedtime.

Brooks Butler Hays is a horseshoe-loving freelance writer based in
Washington, D.C.
Jeremy Stein is a designer and illustrator in New York City.

Hello NY

Meanwhile in San Francisco

An Illustrated Love Letter to the Five Boroughs By Julia Rothman

The City in its Own Words • By Wendy MacNaughton

Anyone who hearts New York will love this illustrated homage
to the city. Artist, author, and New Yorker Julia Rothman
brings humor and tenderness to an eclectic assortment of
historical tidbits (how the New York Public Library lion
sculptures got their names), idiosyncratic places to visit
(where to find the tennis courts at Grand Central Station),
interviews with locals (thoughts on love from a Hasidic
Jewish landlord), and personal recollections from growing
up in the Bronx (fried fish at Johnny’s Reef)—all illuminated
in her beloved signature style. A uniquely entertaining and
informative city guide, this slice of the Big Apple will delight
New York locals and visitors alike.

Take a stroll through the City by the Bay with renowned
artist Wendy MacNaughton in this illustrated collection of
everyday observations. With her beloved city as a backdrop,
a sketchbook in hand, and a natural sense of curiosity,
MacNaughton set out to capture locals in their own words.
This street-smart collection of intimate explorations is as
diverse and beautiful as San Francisco itself, ranging from
the vendors at the farmers’ market to people combing
the shelves at the public library, from MUNI drivers to the
bison of Golden Gate Park, and much more. Meanwhile in
San Francisco offers both lifelong residents and those just
blowing through with the fog an opportunity to see the city
with new eyes.

Julia Rothman is a lifelong New Yorker and the coauthor of
The Exquisite Book and The Where, The Why, and The How.
She lives in Brooklyn, New York.

Sh*t Rough Drafts
Pop Culture's Favorite Books, Movies, and TV Shows as They
Might Have Been • By Paul Laudiero

Sh*t Rough Drafts collects imagined misguided early drafts
of classic books, screenplays, and contemporary literature,
creating visions of alternate works that would exist had the
authors not come to their senses. What if F. Scott Fitzgerald
had gone with the title The Coolest Gatsby? How would The
Hunger Games change if Peeta were armed only with blueberry muffins? And how would the Star Wars films play out
if Darth Vader is Luke’s father, but Chewbacca is also his
cousin? Harry Potter, MacBeth, Jaws, The Lord of the
Rings, Moby Dick, and many more are each presented as if
they were the actual typed or handwritten pages by the
authors themselves, revealing the funny and frightful works
they might have been with a little less capable judgment.
Paul Laudiero is a writer and comedian. He lives in New York City.

Kids Are Weird
And Other Observations from Parenthood • By Jeffrey Brown

As he’s shown in his previous hugely popular books, Jeffrey
Brown has a real gift for finding humor in quirky yet universal truths. Now the bestselling author of Darth Vader and Son
and Vader’s Little Princess brings his witty comic observations to terrestrial parenting in this perceptive book celebrating the more surreal moments of raising a child. In
charming colorful panels, Brown wryly illustrates his fiveyear-old son’s take on the world around him, from watching
TV (“Elton John looks pretty in that shirt”) to playing with
toys (“This truck can survive on very little water”) to odd
requests (“Don’t feel happy at me”), capturing the sweetly
weird times that mothers and fathers everywhere experience with their own curious, pure-minded kids.
Jeffrey Brown is the author and illustrator of Darth Vader and Son,
Vader’s Little Princess, Cat Getting Out of a Bag, and Cats are Weird.
He lives in Chicago with his wife and two sons.

—from Travel & Leisure

LeMON Cake
MAKES TWO 6-BY-2-INCH CAKES OR ONE 9-BY-4-INCH CAKE

PREPARATION TIME 15 MINUTES
BAKING TIME 40 MINUTES
For the batter
11/2 cups sugar
4 lemons, washed
1
/2 cup whipping cream
4 eggs
13/4 cups all-purpose flour
11/2 tsp baking powder
5 tbsp unsalted butter, melted

For the syrup
1 cup water
1
/2 cup sugar
5 tsp lemon juice
1

/4 cup candied lemon peel

MAKING THE BATTER

Put the sugar in a large mixing bowl and grate the zest from the lemons into the
sugar. This captures the flavorful lemon oils. In a small saucepan over low heat,
warm the cream. Juice the lemons and set aside the 5 tsp needed to make the
syrup. Add the eggs to the lemony sugar and whisk until the mixture becomes
pale and thick. Stir in the warm cream, then sift in the flour and baking powder
and fold to incorporate. Finally, add the melted butter and stir to make a smooth,
shiny batter.
BAKING

Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Lightly grease and line two 6-by-2-inch or one 9-by4-inch pan(s) with parchment paper. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake
for 5 minutes, then make a lengthwise incision in the top of the cake with a
sharp knife. Lower the oven temperature to 300ºF, then return the cake to the
oven to bake for about 35 minutes, until a knife inserted into the middle of the
cake comes out clean. Remove from the oven, turn the cakes out of the pans, and
allow to cool on a wire rack.
MAKING THE SYRUP

In a small saucepan, bring the sugar, water, and lemon juice to a boil. Remove
from the heat and allow to cool. While the cake and syrup are still warm, use a
pastry brush to moisten the cake with all of the syrup. Finish decorating the cake
by placing strips of candied lemon peel on top.

À la Mère de Famille

S t o r a g e : Thanks to the lemon syrup, these cakes stay moist for

several days. They are ideal for wrapping and taking to the country for a
picnic, or enjoying for afternoon tea or as a weekend dessert.

Eiji Tsuburaya was the visual effects mastermind behind
Godzilla, Ultraman, and numerous Japanese science fiction
movies and TV shows beloved around the world. The first

delightful on-set photos of Tsuburaya prompting monsters
to crush landmark buildings. A must-have for fans, this
towering tribute also profiles Tsuburaya’s film collaborators,

classic volume I Will Never Forget You collects more than
50 striking portraits of Kahlo as we know and love her,

August Ragone has written and commented on Japanese film and

Tiny Tokyo
The Big City Made Mini • By Ben Thomas

Anyone who has ever set foot in Tokyo or dreamed of seeing its kaleidoscopic wonders will fall in love with this totally
unique tour of the beautiful megalopolis. Here are all the
spectacular sights of the great big Japanese capital, made
tiny enough to fit in a pocket! This teeny tome collects
incredible bird’s-eye views of the bustling cityscape, all shot
using a distinctive photographic technique known as “tiltshift” that has the effect of seeming to shrink its subjects—
making one of the vastest cities in the world look like a
miniature model. Epic skyscrapers, crowded city streets,
and even sumo wrestling matches resemble tiny plastic
toys in this one-of-a-kind little book.
Ben Thomas is an Australia-based photographer whose awardwinning tilt-shift photographs of cities around the world have been
exhibited internationally.

Commando Dad
A Basic Training Manual for the First Three Years of Fatherhood
By Neil Sinclair

As used by Prince William himself, here's the basic training
manual for fatherhood recruits!
This easy-to-use reference is packed with practical, fieldtested instructions for caring for new troopers, from birth to
age three. New dads will learn how to prepare the home for
the latest addition to the corps; establish a sleep routine;
deal with hostile uprisings; feed, burp, and bathe a baby
trooper; and much, much more. Written by an ex-commando
and father of three, the book looks and reads like a basic
training military manual and is full of no-nonsense advice
delivered in a relatable and warm—but not sappy—tone.
Neil Sinclair has been a Royal Engineer Commando, a physical
education teacher, and a licensed childcare provider. He is a
full-time dad living in London, England.

The Submerged Sculptures of Jason deCaires Taylor • By Jason
deCaires Taylor • Essays by Carlo McCormick and Helen Scales

A one-of-a-kind blend of art, nature, and conservation,
The Underwater Museum re-creates an awe-inspiring dive
into the dazzling under-ocean sculpture parks of artist

sinks them to the ocean floor. There, over time, the artworks attract corals, algae, and fish, and evolve into beautiful and surreal installations that are also living reefs. This
volume brings readers face to face with these wonders and
explains the science behind their creation. Ocean enthusiasts, divers, art lovers, and anyone entranced by the natural world will be instantly engrossed by this pearl of a book.
Jason deCaires Taylor is an artist based in Mexico.

them to be two of the first published female novelists and
authors of several enduring works of classic literature. But
they’re not there yet. First, they have to figure out if there is
a connection between a string of local burglaries, rumors
that a neighbor’s death may not have been accidental, and
the appearance on the moors of a mysterious and handsome stranger. The girls have a lot of knots to untangle—
before someone else gets killed.
Michaela MacColl studied multidisciplinary history at Vassar College
and Yale University, which turns out to be the perfect degree for
writing historical fiction. She lives with her husband and two
daughters in Connecticut.

Meet Aileana Kameron:

Heiress. Debutante.

Faery slayer.

“Simply put, my favorite YA paranormal this year.
A must read!”
—#1 New York Times Bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout

“Forget Bella, banish Katniss and Expelliarmus
Hermione—there is a new breed of ass-kicker in
town. . . . Elizabeth May’s debut is a wicked cocktail
of Jane Austen and the Grimms’ fairy tales.”
–Claire Nicholls, SciFiNow

The Falconer
Book One • By Elizabeth May

Edinburgh, 1844. Beautiful Aileana Kameron only looks the
part of an aristocratic young lady. In fact, she’s spent the
year since her mother died developing her ability to sense
the presence of Sithichean, a faery race bent on slaughtering humans. She has a secret mission: to destroy the faery
who murdered her mother. But when she learns she’s a
Falconer, the last in a line of female warriors and the sole
hope of preventing a powerful faery population from massacring all of humanity, her quest for revenge gets a whole
lot more complicated. The first volume of a trilogy from an
exciting new voice in young adult fantasy, this electrifying
thriller blends romance and action with steampunk technology and Scottish lore in a deliciously addictive read.

Author Elizabeth May

Elizabeth May hails from California and is currently a PhD student
in social anthropology at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland.
The Falconer is her first novel.

Praise for Going Over:
“An unforgettable portrayal of life and love
divided. Kephart captures the beauty and
desperation of 1980s Berlin with prose
both gripping and graceful.”
—Ruta Sepetys, New York Times bestselling author
of Between Shades of Gray and Out of the Easy

“Beth Kephart is one of my heroes. She’s spun
gold out of the language of longing and has
shown us how to make room for miracles.
Going Over—about a boy and girl separated
by the cruelest of fates—will inspire any
reader to make the leap for love.”
—Patricia McCormick, author of National Book
Award Finalists Sold and Never Fall Down

Going Over
By Beth Kephart

It is February 1983, and Berlin is a divided city with a
miles-long barricade separating east from west. But the
city isn’t the only thing that is divided. Ada lives among the
rebels, punkers, and immigrants of Kreuzberg in West
Berlin. Stefan lives in East Berlin, in a faceless apartment
bunker of Friedrichshain. Bound by love and separated by
circumstance, their only chance for a life together lies in
a high-risk escape. But will Stefan find the courage to leap?
Or will forces beyond his control stand in his way? National
Book Award finalist Beth Kephart presents a story of daring
and sacrifice, and love that will not wait.
Beth Kephart is the award-winning author of books for both adults
and young readers, including You Are My Only, Small Damages,
and Handling the Truth. She lives in Devon, Pennsylvania.

A powerful debut novel about
strength, survival, and love, set
during Hurricane Katrina.

Upside Down in the Middle of Nowhere
By Julie T. Lamana

Armani Curtis can think about only one thing: her tenth
birthday. All her friends are coming to her party, her mama
is making a big cake, and she has a good feeling about a
certain wrapped box. Turning ten is a big deal to Armani.
It means she’s older, wiser, more responsible. But when
Hurricane Katrina hits the Lower Nines of New Orleans,
Armani realizes that being ten means being brave, watching loved ones die, and mustering all her strength to help
her family weather the storm. A powerful story of courage
and survival, Upside Down in the Middle of Nowhere celebrates the miraculous power of hope and love in the face
of the unthinkable.
Julie T. Lamana lives with her family in Greenwell Springs, Louisiana.
Upside Down in the Middle of Nowhere is her debut novel.

TouchThinkLearn: Numbers
TouchThinkLearn: Shapes
By Xavier Deneux

Combining scooped-out die-cuts with raised, shaped
elements, two new TouchThinkLearn books offer youngest
learners an irresistible opportunity to explore their universe
in a hands-on, multisensory way. See the image, trace its
shape, say its name: these modes of perception combine in
a dynamic way to stimulate understanding of essential
concepts. Experience the number “2” both by counting a
pair of raised car wheels on one side, and feeling its shape
on the other. Contemplate a circle by touching the raised
surface of an owl hooting at night on one side, and the form
of a moon rising on the other. Featuring a format unlike any
other, these groundbreaking books translate abstract
thought into tangible knowledge.

Praise for TouchThinkLearn:
“An irresistible, actually a ground-breaking
book for babies and toddlers.”

Two Hands to Love You
By Diane Adams • Illustrated by Paige Keiser

I’ll bathe you in bubbles and soak you in sun,
then wrap you up tightly when bath time is done.
With two loving hands, an adoring mother cradles her baby
after bath time and a devoted father lifts his newborn to
look into a nest. Sister, brother, grandma, and grandpa all
can’t wait to share what they love best with their newest
family member. And when it is time to step out into the world,
this caring family is right there alongside their littlest one.
In simple, heartfelt language, this soothing picture book for
the very young will tug at the heartstrings and remind us
all of the caring hands that helped us along our way.
Diane Adams is the author of several picture books for children.
She lives in Redlands, California, with her husband.
Paige Keiser found her calling as an illustrator after discovering
the art of N. C. Wyeth. Paige lives in Burke, Virginia.

Daddy Wrong Legs

Peek-a Zoo

By Nina Laden

By Nina Laden

Every daddy is different—and here’s the proof! Featuring
Nina Laden’s colorful artwork and trademark humor, this
interactive format will delight the youngest readers (and
their fathers) as they mix and match the split pages to
create a bevy of daddies that are part hairy, part scaly . . .
and wholly fun.

Read the clue . . . guess the animal . . . giggle wildly . . . and
repeat! At long last, board book virtuoso Nina Laden has
created a companion to her beloved classic Peek-a Who?
(one of Scholastic magazine’s 100 Greatest Books for Kids
with more than 800,000 copies sold). Colorful pictures and
a lively, rhyming text help children predict what animal is
peeking through die-cut windows. The anticipation of
what’s hiding on the next page and the bright, engaging
illustrations will keep youngsters laughing and learning all
the way to the surprise ending.
Nina Laden grew up in the New York City area. The daughter of
two artists, she studied illustration at Syracuse University. She is
the author and illustrator of many books published by Chronicle
Books, including: Peek-a Who?; Who Loves You, Baby?; and
The Night I Followed the Dog. She lives in Seattle, Washington.

Mama, Do You Love Me?

Chicken Big

By Barbara M. Joosse • Illustrated by Barbara Lavallee

By Keith Graves

In this classic, bestselling story of a child testing the limits
of her independence, a mother reassures that a parent’s
love is unconditional and everlasting. This universal story is
made all the more captivating by its unusual Arctic setting.
Complemented by a detailed glossary, this tender story
introduces young readers to a distinctively different culture
and shows that the special love between parent and child
transcends all boundaries of time and place.

On a teeny little farm, in an itty-bitty coop, a very small hen
laid a big, giant egg. And out of this egg came one big,
humongous . . . something. No matter how they try, these
clueless chickens can’t make sense of the gigantic new
member of their family—until he saves the day. With wacky,
laugh-out-loud humor and silliness to spare, this BIG twist
on the classic Chicken Little story lends a whole new perspective to what it means to be chicken.

Barbara M. Joosse is the author of many books for children, such
as the companion to this book, Papa, Do You Love Me? She lives in
Cedarburg, Wisconsin.
Barbara Lavallee is known for her vibrant watercolor illustrations
depicting a wide range of Alaskan life. She lives in Anchorage,
Alaska.

Keith Graves is the author and illustrator of numerous books for
children, including Frank Was a Monster Who Wanted to Dance.
He lives in Austin, Texas, with his family.

Fish Finelli: Seagulls Don’t Eat Pickles

Tortilla Sun

Book 1 • By E. S. Farber • Illustrated by Jason Beene

By Jennifer Cervantes

When the Whooping Hollow town bully, Bryce Billings, bets
Fish Finelli that he can’t find Captain Kidd’s treasure, Fish
and his best buds Roger and T. J. must embark on a quest
to find the long-lost booty! Between sneaking into the
library to track down Captain Kidd’s treasure map, stowing
away on a boat, and trespassing on the legendary Lyons
Island, Fish and his friends are up to their necks in “goose
poop” on this adventure! This paperback edition coincides
with the hardcover edition of the second book in the series
(see page 54).

When twelve-year-old Izzy spends the summer in her
Nana’s remote New Mexico village, she discovers
long-buried secrets that come alive in an enchanted
landscape of majestic mountains, whispering winds, and
tortilla suns. Infused with the flavor of the southwest and
sprinkled with just a pinch of magic, readers are sure to
find this heartfelt story as rich and satisfying as Nana’s
homemade enchiladas.
Jennifer Cervantes lives with her family in Las Cruces, New
Mexico. Tortilla Sun is her first novel for children.

E. S. Farber is the mother of a boy who likes facts along with his
fiction, which inspired her to write Fish Finelli. She has authored
numerous books for children. She lives in Amagansett, New York.
Jason Beene is the art director of Calloway Digital Arts, teaches at
MIT and RISD, and lives in Providence, Rhode Island.

Under Shifting Glass

Nobody’s Secret

By Nicky Singer

A Novel of Intrigue and Romance • By Michaela MacColl

Jess has a secret: a mysterious glass flask she finds in an
heirloom desk’s hidden compartment. Its surface swirls
with iridescent colors, like something’s inside, something
almost like a song, something with a soul. No one else sees
anything under the shifting glass, but Jess is convinced
there must be some kind of magic in there. And when her
twin brothers are born critically ill, Jess begins to believe
that the force within the flask just might hold the key to
saving her brothers—and her family. In this emotionally
rich novel, award-winning author Nicky Singer crafts a
world of possibility steeped in hope and the power of love.

When fifteen-year-old Emily Dickinson meets a mysterious,
handsome young man who doesn’t seem to know who she
or her family is and playfully refuses to divulge his name,
she’s intrigued. She enjoys her secret flirtation with “Mr.
Nobody”—until he turns up dead in her family’s pond.
She’s stricken with guilt and is determined to discover who
this enigmatic stranger was before he’s buried in an anonymous grave, an investigation that takes her deep into town
secrets, blossoming romance, and deadly danger. A celebration of Emily Dickinson’s intellect and spunk, this
exquisitely written and meticulously researched page-turner
will excite fans of mystery, romance, and poetry alike.

Nicky Singer is the acclaimed author of six books for children
including Feather Boy, which won the Blue Peter Award in the
U.K. She lives with her family in Brighton, England.

Michaela MacColl studied multidisciplinary history at Vassar
College and Yale University. She lives with her husband and two
daughters in Connecticut.

Meet the Artist

By Patricia Geis

By Patricia Geis

No artist can put a smile on your face more quickly than
Alexander Calder. A sense of playfulness animates all his
work—from his signature hanging mobiles to his endlessly
creative toys, drawings, and jewelry. Alexander Calder:
Meet the Artist is an exciting hands-on introduction to this
most beloved American sculptor. Calder’s whimsical world
is brought to life by imaginative pop-ups, pull-tabs, lift-theflaps, and cut-outs. A universe of artistic possibilities opens
up as young readers explore Calder’s creative evolution,
play with his toy designs, and even create their own
sculptural Circus !

Pablo Picasso: Meet the Artist takes young readers on an
interactive journey through the remarkable life of the legendary Spanish painter. This engaging pop-up book uses
a multitude of lift-the-flaps, cut-outs, and pull-tabs to
explain how his art evolved over his lifetime—from his
earliest painting at age seven to the great masterworks of
Les Demoiselles d’Avignon and Guernica. Readers are
encouraged to make their own cubist collage using an
enclosed sheet containing an eclectic collection of images.

by friends, acquaintances, and members of his household. He figures he must just
have one of those faces. You can read Jason’s comics at www.picnicspirit.com.

MORGAN

“In this vividly illustrated encyclopedia of, and paean to, everything from Andean
tubers to wasabi, Diane Morgan makes a strong case for the delightful possibilities
of this vastly underrated class of vegetables. Her lore is fascinating and her passion
for her subject is nothing less than inspiring.”
—COLMAN ANDREWS,
editorial director of TheDailyMeal.com and author of The Country Cooking of Italy

John Valls

DIANE MORGAN is an award-winning cookbook author,
freelance food writer, culinary instructor, and restaurant
consultant. She is the author of seventeen cookbooks, including Skinny Dips, The Christmas Table, The New Thanksgiving Table,
Grill Every Day, Salmon, and Delicious Dips, all from Chronicle
Books. She lives in Portland, Oregon. Please visit her website
at DianeMorganCooks.com.

ROOTS

“Diane Morgan has done the impossible. She has transformed the subject of root
vegetables into an extraordinary reference book and brought them deliciously to life
with irresistible recipes. This is a must for any cook who wants to expand their culinary
horizons and navigate the fascinating world of root vegetables with confidence.”
—GRACE YOUNG,
author of Stir-Frying to the Sky’s Edge

“Diane Morgan’s latest book illuminates the culinary underworld in the most marvelous way, allowing roots, rhizomes, tubers, and corms to bask in the limelight. Diane’s
kitchen prowess elevates lowly root vegetables to (well-deserved) exalted menu
status. While lotus root, tubers, and yams are staples in my own Japanese kitchen,
mostly for savory dishes, thanks to Diane, I discovered the sweet wonders of Lotus
Root Upside-Down Cake and the piquant pleasures of purple potatoes with smoked
trout. Kansha: appreciation, in equal measure for nature’s hidden underground
treasures... and for Diane’s insatiable curiosity and literary diligence that created this
tasty tribute to the edible underworld.”

ANTONIS ACHILLEOS is a New York–based photographer specializing in food. His work for Chronicle Books
includes Top Chef: Quickfire Cookbook, Whoopie Pies, and
Big Fat Cookies.

The

ROOTS

definitive compendium with more than 225 recipes

For anyone who ever picked up a strangely shaped, gnarly
looking vegetable at the farmers’ market (in the author’s case,
burdock root) and said “what’s this?” Roots is your go-to guide
to the veggies found underground.
This comprehensive cookbook reveals the underworld of roots,
from the familiar (beets, carrots, potatoes) to the unfamiliar
( jicama, salsify, yuca) to the practically unheard of (cassava,
galangal, crosne). Discover the fascinating history and lore
of each one, their nutritional content, how to buy and store
them, and—the best part—more than 225 recipes that bring
out their best flavors.
Start simply with easy-to-prepare Ginger Rhubarb Chutney.
Save it in pretty glass containers and this tangy-spicy sauce
makes a great gift (or eat it yourself straight from the jar!).
Explore more unusual varieties like burdock, a long, thin root
with a mild flavor and pleasing crunch that makes it ideal for
pickling and stir-fries. Didn’t know turmeric was a root? Used
mostly in Asian cooking, turmeric is best known for its beautiful
golden color and its welcome presence in dishes like Chiang
Mai Curry Noodles. And don’t forget the well-loved stand-bys
like potatoes and carrots that make flavorful hearty stews and
quick weeknight meals.

“Diane throws open the doors of the root cellar and shines a strong beam of light on
this subterranean wonderland. From burdock and beets to rutabagas and radishes
(and beyond), she works through this often overlooked realm with inspired recipes
and illuminating reference material. The word that keeps coming to mind: finally!—
a book that helps me understand the real potential of these culinary outliers.”
—HEIDI SWANSON,
author of Super Natural Every Day and 101Cookbooks.com

Whether you bring home your new-found roots from the
grocery store or your local famers’ market, these delicious,
nutritious, and easy-on–the-wallet veggies will add a new
level of taste and sophistication to your everyday cooking.

A shell-shaped cake with one perfect little bump on its back . . .

WE LOVE

madeleines

madeleines

These forty-one reverential recipes developed by madeleine lovers
from Italy to Oregon break the mold, with unexpected delights from
rosemary polenta to molasses spice to chocolate-hazelnut, plus glutenfree and vegan options. Filled with madeleine-perfecting tips, such
as picking the right pan, as well as a chapter on glazes, syrups, and
other toppings, the wisdom of more than a dozen aficionados comes
together in this delectable ode to the little cake we love.

WE LOVE

madeleines are the classic cookie, evoking simplicity and nostalgia
and transcending the sprinkle-spattered dessert fads that fade away
before the steam has even rolled off your Earl Grey. And yet, this
crowd-sourced celebration of the dainty French delight proves that
classic doesn’t have to be conventional.

holmberg

Holmberg brings great intelligence and lucid writing and instructions to the important craft of
sauces. She is both respectful of and illuminating about classic sauces, innovative in her thinking
about contemporary sauces, and practical in terms of everyday cooking. This is a great book.”

michael ruhlman, author of twenty and ratio
“Here’s a book you’ll use every day whether you’re tossing together a quick salad or creating a
dessert for a gala. Martha Holmberg’s truly modern (read: simple, fast, and tasty) sauces pump up
the flavor and excitement of every dish. Think of these sauces as a culinary bag of tricks . . . I do.”
