Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge
A Novel

Demons are real. Booze is magic.
And a well-crafted cocktail is
Chicago’s only hope.

COVER

FINAL

by Paul Krueger

ALSO AVAILABLE

College grad Bailey Chen has all of the usual new-adult demons: no cash, no job offers, and
a rocky relationship with Zane, the only friend still around when she moves back home. But
her demons become a lot more literal when Zane introduces Bailey to his cadre of monsterfighting bartenders. It turns out supernatural creatures are stalking the streets of Chicago,
and they can be hunted only with the help of magically mixed cocktails: vodka grants superstrength, whiskey offers the power of telekinesis, and tequila lets its drinker fire blasts of
elemental energy. But will these supernatural powers be enough for Bailey and a ragtag band
of mixologists to halt a mysterious rash of gruesome deaths? Includes 13 cocktail recipes from
an ancient book of cocktail lore.

Kid Artists

True Tales of Childhood from Creative Legends

BECAUSE EVERY ARTIST
STARTED OUT AS A KID.
PRAISE FOR THE KID LEGENDS SERIES:
“Inspiring and entertaining, Kid Athletes isn’t just for sports fans.”
—Booklist, starred review
“Little-known and unknown facts and anecdotes about the nation’s
presidents comprise this short book and should find an audience with
students who can’t get enough of world record books.”—Library
Media Connection
“Kid Presidents gives readers a humorous peek into the early lives of
our country’s leaders.”—Time for Kids
“With cartoonish illustrations that will attract fans of Jeff Kinney’s The Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Rachel Renée Russell’s The Dork
Diaries, this informative offering leaves no presidential childhood rock
unturned.”—School Library Journal

COVER
NOT
FINAL

by David Stabler illustrated by Doogie Horner

ALSO AVAILABLE

The series that began with Kid Presidents and Kid Athletes has a new volume that chronicles the
childhoods of 16 celebrated artists—everyone from Claude Monet and Vincent van Gogh
to Mary Cassat, Frida Kahlo, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and even Dr. Seuss! Readers will learn:
• Georgia O’Keeffe was so enthralled by nature that she once ate dirt just to see what it
tasted like.
• Jackson Pollock lost the top of his right index finger in a childhood accident (and the
severed tip was eaten by a rooster!).
• Andy Warhol’s favorite childhood lunch was—what else?—a bowl of Campbell’s
tomato soup.
Every scribble, sketch, and sticky situation comes to life in these kid-friendly and relatable
stories, all with Doogie Horner’s trademark whimsical illustrations. Kid Artists is a delight for
budding artists and eager readers alike.
DAVID STABLER and DOOGIE HORNER previously collaborated on Kid Athletes (Quirk,

2015) and Kid Presidents (Quirk, 2014). Both live in New York City.
