from Artichokes to Zucchini

Cara Mangini

arrying the art of butchery with the joy of gorgeous seasonal produce,
The Vegetable Butcher is the fresh, inspiring, and essential guide
that demystifies the world of vegetables, from exotic crosnes and gnarly
celeriac to the amazingly versatile everyday potato. Its the book that shows
exactly how to prepare an
artichokeplus peel a tomato,
chiffonade kale, slice kohlrabi
into carpaccio, break down a
butternut squash, and cut a cauliflower into steaks.
This is a complete vegetable
education, from what to look for
at the market to how to make
vegetables the center of truly
distinctive dishes. Over 100 recipes,
all vegetarian (and all extraordinarily
luscious), celebrate the soul-satisfying
flavor of each vegetableOrangeShallot Fiddlehead Ferns and Ricotta

Corn, and Basil Penne with Pine Nuts and Mozzarella; Cauliflower and Caramelized

sweeten a winter meal.
Vegetables are modern, sexy, and outrageously delicious. And now, completely
knowable, too.

WHAT TO EXPECT
WHEN YOURE EXPECTING

fifth edition
Heidi Murkoff
and Sharon Mazel

nnouncing a brand-new fifth edition of Americas pregnancy bible. What to


Expect When Youre Expecting holds the record for the most weeks on the
New York Times bestseller list, and now has 18.5 million copies in print in the U.S.
alone. Its the choice of 93 percent of women who read a pregnancy book, is the book
most recommended by doctors, and was named one of the Most Influential Books of
the Last 25 Years by USA Today.
This cover-to-cover (including the cover!) new edition is filled with musthave information, advice, insight, and tips for a new generation of moms and
dads, walking them through two of lifes most exciting, joyful, and, lets face it,
occasionally terrifying experiences: pregnancy and childbirth. Heidi Murkoff
answers every conceivable question expecting parents could have with her trademark
warmth, empathy, reassurance, and humor. Advice for dads is fully integrated
throughout the book in boxes that speak to their unique concerns as partners in
pregnancy, childbirth, and parenting. All medical coverage is completely updated,
including the latest on prenatal screening, and the safety of medications during
pregnancy, as well as a brand-new section on postpartum birth control. Current
lifestyle trends are incorporated, too: juice bars, raw diets, e-cigarettes, push
presents, baby bump posting, the lowdown on omega-3 fatty acids, grass-fed and
organic, health food fads, and GMOs. Plus, expanded coverage of IVF pregnancy,
multiple pregnancies, breastfeeding while pregnant, water and home births, and
cesarean trends (including gentle cesareans).

Heidi Murkoff is the author of the What to Expect series of pregnancy and
parenting books. She is also the creator of WhatToExpect.com, the What to Expect app,
and the What to Expect Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping
underserved families expect healthy pregnancies and healthy babies. She and
her husband, Erik, are also partners with the USO, bringing baby showers to military families, and the International Medical Corps, working
to make pregnancy and childbirth safer worldwide. Their daughter,
Emma Bing, appears (pregnant with their first grandson, Lennox) on
the cover of this fifth edition.

OCCASIONAL
DRINKING
The Best Wines and Beers
to Pair with Every Situation
That Calls for a Drink

Diane McMartin

ny decent wine book or food magazine can tell you what to drink with a grassfed steak. But whats the best wine to pair with a blind date? Or to pour for
your girlfriends when settling in to watch the Oscars? What goes with a lame class
reunion? A job promotion? Your next Netflix binge?
Occasional Drinking is the inspired guide to matching wines and beers to
the significant (and not-so-significant) events in lifenot just what youre eating, but
what youre feeling, and when. Its the beverage book for those situations that truly
call for a drinkfrom dating quirky OKCupid guys to recovering after a rough day
at work to squeezing into yet another bridesmaid dress. Diane McMartin, a trained
sommelier who launched an occasion-based drinking column on The Hairpin after
trying to soothe a brokenhearted roommate with cheap ros, offers hundreds of
unexpected recommendations for dating, work, holidays, weddings, music festivals,
baby showers, and more. Stalking a new boyfriend on social media? (Get a grip with
a fresh, minerally Chablis.) Turning 27? (Graduate to a decent American craft brew,
like Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA.) Reconnecting with a high school flame? (This
calls for something impressive, but not too on the nose. Want to look like a grown-up
whos arrived? Try Barolo.)
The writing is fresh, hip, full of attitude, and as solidly informative as it is
entertaining. In addition to the complete emotional landscape of wine and beer, there
are guides on tasting, buying, and serving; profiles of grape varieties; and primers on
topics like hops and wood-aging. Everything you need to know to drink like an adult,
even if you dont always behave like one.

* Perfect wine and beer pairings


for real-life situations
* Hundreds of unexpected and
affordable recommendations, and
a knowledgeable, reader-friendly
introductory guide to wine and beer

DEAR COUNTY
AGENT GUY
Calf Pulling, Husband Training, and
Other Dispatches from the Heart of
the Midwest
Jerry Nelson
Jerry Nelsons column comes from the true heart of the Midwest. He has the
true voice, the slow twang. He knows wheat from barley. He knows hardware, he
knows vegetation, he knows people.Garrison Keillor

n the tradition of Mark Twain and Jean Shepherd, Dave Barry and Garrison Keillor,
Jerry Nelson is a humorist whose beat is the American heartland, a small-town
world of pickup trucks and Sunday night pancake dinners, dropping in on neighbors
and complaining to the county agent.*
A fourth-generation dairy farmer, Jerry Nelson discovered his voice after he
wrote a tongue-in-cheek letter to his county agent for advice on what to do, after a
period of heavy rain, about the ducks and Jet Skiers frolicking in his cornfields. From
then on Jerry had a new calling to go along with his day jobwriting a humorous
column called Dear County Agent Guy. Jerrys depictions of daily life, from the point
of view of a taciturn husband with a twinkle in his eye, are read by 250,000 people a
weekand occasionally woven into A Prairie Home Companion scripts.
These are stories of courtship (Jerry refers to himself as a Norwegian bachelor
farmer); childbirth (he offers the delivery room doctor the use of his calf puller);
family (he beautifully describes rummaging with his sons through an abandoned
family homestead); the duties of a husband (exactly why is it that a man who spends
his days in cow manure cant change a babys diaper?); the days of chores (never
will the reader look at a grain silo the same way again). Knee-slappingly funny one
moment, poignant the next, its a very special look at a distinctly American way of life.

GOOD JOB!
The Hidden Dangers of Parentspeak,
and what to say instead
Jennifer Lehr

magine if every time you praise your child with Good job! youre actually
doing more harm than good. What if asking a child Can you say thank you?
is exactly the wrong way to go about teaching manners? And would you still say
Im going to tickle you! if you knew it had just as much potential to terrorize as
to delight?
Jennifer Lehr is a smart, funny, fearless writer who, in the words of the
actress Jennifer Jason Leigh, takes everything you thought you knew about
parenting and turns it on its ear. Backing up her lively arguments with research
from psychologists, educators, and organizations, including Thomas Gordon,
Alfie Kohn, Peter Gray, and R.I.E. (Resources for Infant Educarers), Ms. Lehr
takes on parentspeakthe seemingly innocuous language parents fall back on
when talking to their young childrenand, in the process, offers a conscious,
compassionate approach to parenting based on respect and love for the child as an
individual.
So what to say instead of Good job! the next time your daughter shows off
her new painting? Demonstrate actual interest by asking her to describe the work and
sharing your impressions of it. And whats wrong with Whos a big boy!? It sells
the idea that older is somehow betterso often used by parents trying to potty train
a childand discounts the childs own fears about change. Readers will be surprised
when they realize how often they rely on these phrases, and then become proselytizers for the wisdom of Good Job! Theres nothing as compelling in the lives of
young parents as the subject of parentingparticularly when it comes with the promise of strengthening their relationships with their children along the way.

* A provocative guide to the


hidden dangers of parentspeak
the seemingly innocuous
catchphrases parents use when
talking to their young children
* Compelling, compassionate,
conscious parenting advice on
everything from sharing to timeouts, and incorporating ideas and
scholarship from Alfie Kohn, Peter
Gray, and other psychologists and
educators
* For readers of Bringing Up Bb,
Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother,
and No-Drama Discipline
* Smart, audacious, and often
hilarious. Takes everything you
thought you knew about parenting
and turns it on its ear. Jennifer

WHO WINS?
100 Historical Figures Go Head-toHead and You Decide the Winner!
Clay Swartz
Illustrated by Tom Booth

ne can read lengthy biographies of historical figures. Or, with Who


Wins?, pit them head-to-head in a Ping-Pong match, hot dog eating
contest, or a pie bake-off and actually understand firsthand the strengths and
weaknesses, the triumphs and losses of the people who have shaped our world.
Interactive, die-cut, and fully illustrated, Who Wins? turns history into a
compelling game. With mix-and-match die-cut pages (so each make-your-own
matchup includes two historical figures and one wild challenge), readers can flip any
of the three panels and match 100 historical figures in 50 competitive head-to-head
categories, from mini golf to climbing Mount Everest. Each character is given a short
bio and ranked in six categoriesbravery, leadership, artistry, wealth, wisdom,
and fitness.
Lets say Charles Dickens challenges Mother Teresa to a
lightsaber duelwill his superior artistry overcome her advantage
in bravery and leadership? Or who wins karaokeNelson Mandela or Jane Austen? They both
certainly have a way with words, but Mandelas
over-the-top courage might take the day. Actually,

must justify the answer based on the rankings as

Imagine a chain saw slicing away at a tree


(102 decibels) or a lawn mower attacking the

roaring loudly alongside you at a red light (a
paltry 90 decibels). Loud, right? Now, ladies

Right this very second, your body is full of gas.


Some of that gas is just air that youve swallowed
this happens if you eat or drink too fast (so
slow down!). Even more gas gets produced during digestion. All that food you consume has to
be broken down by bacteria in the stomach and
the intestines. As bacteria help your body digest
food, they produce gassy (and sometimes smelly!)
by-products like carbon dioxide, nitrogen and

a tablespoon of finely diced onions or

methane. Vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, onions, and garlic, and of course beans,
are particularly good gas producers. All that gas
builds up inside our bodies until the pressure is
just too much! So how come we dont swell up
like a giant parade balloon until we go kerplooie?
Burps to the rescue! Burping is one good way to
squeeze extra air out.

Active Backlist Titles with an Updated Look

ut your baby to sleep! Based on the scientifically established


rest and activity cycle that occurs every hour and a half,
heres a proven program to help every parent give their baby
better nights and naps. Simply note the time your baby wakes up.
Play, feed, or engage with the baby for 90 minutes; then begin
to soothe him back to sleep. Thats right, 90 minutes after baby
wakes up in the morning, its time for a nap; and 90 minutes
after the nap, its time for another one. In a reassuring style, Dr.
Moore explains how and why the program works for babies from
two weeks to a year; and how to solve common problems including sleep issues due to illness or traveling across time zones.

Polly Moore, Ph.D., received her degree in


neuroscience from UCLA, where she specialized in sleep
research. She continued her research at the Scripps Clinic
Sleep Center before becoming Director of Sleep Research at
California Clinical Trials in San Diego.

BOO

uthor, artist, filmmaker, and


inventor, Rufus Butler Seder
has been fascinated with
antique optical toys since he was a
child. About twenty years ago, he
developed Lifetiles, optical glasstiled murals that appear to come
to life, move, and change when the
viewer walks or rides by. These
movies for the wall are installed
in aquariums, science museums,
train stations, and other public

places around the globe. His next


challenge was to create a similar
effecta moving picture using no
electricity or special lightingbut
on a much smaller scale. So began
Scanimation, the unique patented
technology behind his bestselling
books. Mr. Seder lives with his
wife in Boston.

Waddle! A Scanimation
Picture Book Rufus Butler Seder
Its Waddle! Its in color.
And boy, is it irresistible.
In the same way that
kids cant read Gallop!
without wanting to gallop around the room,
Waddle! inspires prancing, hopping, stomping,
and scampering. And did
we mention color? The
prancing pig is pink, the
leaping dolphin is blue,
the slithering snake yellow. The Scanimation
itself is also more lifelike, as the author continues to refine his patented

Scanimation process,
resulting in a more fluid,
realistic motion. Nothing
else compares.
And one more thing:
Waddle! has a surprise
ending. Something else to
grab the readerliterally.

Swing! A Scanimation Picture Book


Rufus Butler Seder

Gallop! A Scanimation
Picture Book Rufus Butler Seder

Welcome to Swing!a
boy rides a bike, a girl
kicks her soccer ball,
a skater pirouettes on
ice. The effect is joyous,
magical, and utterly compelling, because of the
endless fascination that
children have in watching other children. The
second book created by
Rufus Butler Seder, who
developed Scanimation
out of his obsession with
antique optical toys and
other pre-motion-picture

Theres never before been


a book like Gallop!
Employing Scanimation,
each page brings animals,
along with one shining
star, to life with art that
literally moves. A first
book of motion for kids,
it shows a horse in full
gallop and a turtle swimming up the page. A dog
runs, an eagle soars, and a
butterfly flutters. Created
by Rufus Butler Seder,
an inventor, artist, and
filmmaker fascinated

by antique optical toys,


Scanimation harkens back
to the kinetoscope, and
the effect is astonishing.
2,808,000 copies in print.

eight wild animals that
come alive. Using neverbefore-seen Photicular

like a 3-D movie on the

branch.

An evocative journal
of a safari along the Mara
River in Kenya accompanies each image.

MUST Find and Follow Your Passion
Elle Luna
A timeless, inspirational,
highly visual gift book

We get to choose the path

feel we ought to be doing)
and Must (the thing we
dream of doing, our
hearts desire). Drawing
on her own personal
journey, the artist and
designer Elle Luna shows
how to connect with your
own inner voice; how to
stop going to work and
instead become one with
your work; how to face

actually do something
about it and share your

PARENTING IS EASY Youre Probably

BIG APPETITES Tiny People in a

99 PROBLEMS Superstars Have Bad


Days, Too Ali Graham

Hopes, dreams, adventure, love. Greed, pride,


menace. And poachers
prying the seeds out of
strawberries. Marrying
inspired photographs of
real food and tiny people
with equally inspired
captions, Christopher
Boffoli creates a smart,
funny, quirky vision of
what it means to play
with your food. The
scenes are hilarious and
outlandish. And the captions surprise with their

cleverness and emotional

Poor Superstar. All the


money and fame in the
world wont prevent him

from its cone. Or so an
