Workman Publishing Company Amazing Cows: Udder Absurdity for Children

From Sandra Boynton?as it could only come from Boynton?an inventive new exuberant jumble of a book for the young reader. Amazing Cows is a picture book, a storybook, a book of fun and games?it?s all those things in one. Plus it even shows y...ou how to find the startling recording of Maurice Ravel?s ?Bolero Completely Unraveled for Orchestra and Kazoos? performed by Sandra Boyton and The Highly Irritating Orchestra. (Running time is 17:14, but seems MUCH longer.) A work of pure obsession, Amazing Cows celebrates cows and offbeat cowness with a miscellany of cow stories, cow poems, cow jokes, and other bovine ephemera. Along the way, expect lively guest appearances by ducks, pigs, and excessive numbers of chickens. There?s a song: It Had to Be Moo. A game: Find the Hidden Cows. Famous Barnyard Composers (surely you?ve heard of Wolfgang Amadeus Moozart and Johann Sebastian Bockbockbock). Knock-knock jokes, a cow myth, and an Amazing Cow comic-book adventure: Trouble on Zebblor 7. Cow fashion. Cow Limericks. How to Speak Cow. Plus so much mooer. Amazing Cows is full-color, 96 pages long, and packed with the kind of silly fun that young readers adore, especially when they can read it to themselves?and then read it to their parents, and then to their little brothers, and then to the family dog. Or the family cow.

Kids love origami?and what could be cooler than transforming a piece of paper into Boba Fett, Princess Leia, Yoda, or R2-D2? And n...ot just any paper, but custom-designed paper illustrated with art from the movies. Star Wars Origami marries the fun of paper folding with the obsession of Star Wars. Like The Joy of Origami and Origami on the Go, this book puts an original spin on an ancient art. And like Star Wars Scanimation and Star Wars Fandex, it?s a fresh take on Star Wars mania. Chris Alexander is a master folder and founder of the popular website StarWarsOrigami.com, and here are 36 models, clearly explained, that range in difficulty from Youngling (easy) to Padawan (medium), Jedi Knight (difficult), and Jedi Master (tricky!). A front section introduces origami definitions and basic folds. Bound in the back is the book?s unique folding paper, two sheets for each figure. Illustrated with original art, it makes each creation?the essential lightsabers, the Death Star, and much more?true to the movies. Star Wars Origami includes a foreword by Tom Angleberger, author of the New York Times bestsellers The Strange Case of Origami Yoda and Darth Paper Strikes Back, and is scheduled to be published at the same time as Angleberger?s upcoming book, The Secret of the Fortune Wookiee.

Math rocks! At least it does in the gifted hands of Sean Connolly, who blends middle school math with fantasy to create an excitin...g adventure in problem-solving. These word problems are perilous, do-or-die scenarios of blood-sucking vampires (How many months would it take a single vampire to completely take over a town of 500,000 people/i>), or a rowboat of 5 shipwrecked sailors with a single barrel of freshwater (How much can they drink, and for how long, before they go mad from thirst/i>). Each problem requires readers to dig deep into the tools they?re learning in school to figure out how to survive. Kids will love solving these problems. Sean Connolly knows how to make tough subjects exciting and he brings that same intuitive understanding of what inspires and challenges kids? curiosity to the 24 problems in The Book of Perfectly Perilous Math. These problems are as fun to read as they are challenging to solve. They test readers on fractions, algebra, geometry, probability, expressions and equations, and more. Use geometry to fill in for the ship?s navigator and make it safely to the New World. Escape an evil Duke?s executioner by picking the right door?probability will save your neck.
