HERE IS ONE BIG BOOK OF FUN. BEFORE YOURE DONE YOULL LAUGH A TON! Award-winning author Judi Barrett and illustrator Daniel Moreton invite young readers to think of numbers, counting, and rhyming in a whole new way. A Few Words From the Auth...or: Ive always wanted to create a different kind of counting book. I love playing with words, rhyming them, making jokes with them, and playing with their sounds. I had such a good time writing I Knew Two Who Said Moo. I started with the sound of each number, and then thought of other words with similar sounds that I could use to create these nonsense rhymes that do make sense -- in a silly way! Writing this book made me laugh. I hope it makes you laugh too!

Nic Sheff was drunk for the first time at age eleven. In the years that followed, he would regularly smoke pot, do cocaine and Ecs...tasy, and develop addictions to crystal meth and heroin. Even so, he felt like he would always be able to quit and put his life together whenever he needed to. It took a violent relapse one summer in California to convince him otherwise. In a voice that is raw and honest, Nic spares no detail in telling us the compelling, heartbreaking, and true story of his relapse and the road to recovery. As we watch Nic plunge the mental and physical depths of drug addiction, he paints a picture for us of a person at odds with his past, with his family, with his substances, and with himself. Its a harrowing portrait -- but not one without hope.

Ashleys autobiography is full of art, photographs, and the poignant never-say-never tale of his rich life, a life that has always ...included drawing and painting. Even as a boy growing up during the Depression, he painted -- finding cast off objects to turn into books and kites and toy and art. Even as a solder in the segregated Army on the beaches of Normandy, he sketched -- keeping charcoal crayons and paper in his gasmask to draw with during lulls. Even as a talented, visionary art student who was accepted and then turned away from college upon arrival, the school telling Ashley that to give a scholarship to an African American student would be a waste, he painted -- continuing to create art when he could have been discouraged, continuing to polish his talents when his spirit should have been beaten. Ashley went on to become a Hans Christian Anderson Award nominee, a May Hill Arbuthnot lecturer, and a multiple Coretta Scott King award winner. As you might imagine, his story is powerful, bursting with his creative energy, and a testament to believing in oneself. Its a book every child in America should have access to and it does what the very best autobiographies do; it inspires!
