Pure nuttiness: the Twimerick, a fiendish confection of limerick plus tongue-twister, topped off by the deliciously whacky illustr...ations  of its inventor, Lou Brooks. To wit (and to be read out loud quickly): A petulant flatulent  platypus starts, To tooting and flouting his  flute to his farts, But at platypus outings, His flatulent floutings, Flout his flute flat at the tootiest parts. Nonsensical whimsy―or whimsical nonsense―Twimericks are a form of wordplay that are irresistible for kids, as well as for grown-ups unafraid to be silly; perfect to be read at parties or in a classroom when learning poetry (that’s right, who knew poetry could be so much fun?). And the book itself, like the best poetry collections, is a gem offering one Twimerick per page, each illustrated in full-color by the author, a legendary commercial artist. Open to any page and feel the unbridled creative energy spilling out. It's pure happiness. read more

Since 1978, when the first of its country markets opened in Westport, Connecticut, Hay Day has been a celebrated purveyor of the f...inest farmstand produce, breads, pastries, cheeses, comestibles, provisions, and take-out fare. Twenty years later, after having helped shape America's culinary revolution, Hay Day presents 250 of the recipes that keep its customers coming back again and again. Reflecting its passion for quality, freshness, inventiveness, and character, The Hay Day Country Market Cookbook mirrors the way the country cooks and eats today.

And it's about the integrity of cooking in concert with the seasons--New Potatoes and Fiddlehead Ferns in spring, Grilled Duck with Citrus Cherry Relish in summer, Wild Rice and Cranberries in fall, Rosy Root Vegetable Chili for the dead of winter.

Teeny Lamothe is a young woman on a mission―and the mission is pie. Charming, passionate, determined, Teeny traveled America to wo...rk with the country's best bakers and learn their techniques, tricks, and wisdom. Now she shares the fruits of her apprenticeship―the crumbs and crusts of her crusade―in Teeny’s Tour of Pie, a delectable journey into total pie immersion. Here are more than 55 pies, sweet and savory, plus a complete crust primer, and all of it seasoned throughout with Teeny’s humor and inspiration. There are fruit pies: Strawberry Rhubarb Pie, Lemony Blueberry Crumb Pie, Rosemary-Infused Caramel Apple Pie. Cream pies: Zested Lime Curd Pie, French Silk Pie. Traditional pies―Sweet Potato Pie, Shoofly Pie, Chess Pie―and unexpected pies―Peanut Butter Brownie Pie with a Pretzel Crust, Bourbon Bacon Pecan Pie. And savory pies, too, like Thanksgiving Dinner Pie with a Stuffing Crumble. Teeny is a gifted baker and writer who demystifies every step. She explains why to add vodka to the pie crust; what to do when the dough is sticky or tears; how to cut and weave a lattice topping. There are the 5 Commandments of Crust and more than 10 no-fail crust recipes, even including one gluten-free. Plus she shows how to make “teeny” pies―her specialty, using a 5-inch pie pan―from the recipes. Teeny’s Tour of Pie captures both the timeless, homespun appeal of pie and its very timely popularity, right down to the “bakery box” cover with its embossed “string,” flaps, and spot-laminated “tape.” Includes profiles of pie-makers, personal stories, and gorgeous full-color beauty shots and step-by-step photographs. read more

Little kids love to count. Little kids love counting books, too. And little kids also love manipulatives- tactile objects disguise...d as educational tools that are pleasing to the touch and a joy to play with. Now add them together, and the result is the all-but irresistible 10 Button Book. Created by celebrated folk artist William Accorsi, 10 Button Book is the gutsiest, most interactive of counting books. Ingeniously designed, it combines a double-thick board book with ten colorful, government safety-tested plastic buttons attached by ten strong colorful ribbons, all bound into the spine. The object is simple. On spread one - One button Billy kids take one of the buttons and snap it into the die-cut holes, in this case filling out the "eyes" of a character's face. And so on, up to Ten buttons on his nose, where kids fill in the inverted pyramid of buttons over a juggler's head. The rhyming text is simple and energetic; the illustrations are dynamic collages made of cut felt. Little kids learning to count (and those who already know their one-to-tens) will be popping the buttons in and out, again and again. And undoubtedly there to help in the fun will be the kids who are their parents. read more
