Workman Publishing Company Dog Train: A Wild Ride on the Rock-and-Roll Side (Book+CD)

Boynton rocks! So does Blues Traveler, who perform a stomping version of the title song, a moody rock journey that Boynton wrote especially for them. And then there?s Alison Krauss with ?Evermore.? And Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme?really?...who do the ?Boring Song.? The Spin Doctors, who channel rock?s rebellious side?with a taste of punk?for ?Tantrum?: ?No No No, I don?t want to, I don?t want to./No no no, I don?t want to, no no./Leave me alone. Leave me alone./LEAVE ME ALONE.? And the sweetly unexpected pairing of ?Weird Al? Yankovic and Kate Winslet (yep, Kate Winslet) as a duet singing ?I Need a Nap.? Full of attitude, full of fun, all lit up with star power, and boasting a variety of Top 40 styles?rock and roll, blues, hip-hop, and power pop?Dog Train is the third book-and-CD production by Sandra Boynton, following the #1 New York Times bestselling, Grammy-nominated Philadelphia Chickens and the recently re-released Rhinoceros Tap. Like Philadelphia Chickens, features all original songs recorded by a mix of big-name acts and great voices, for the pleasure of the parents as much as the kids. Packaged similarly to the previous Boynton and Ford recordings, Dog Train is also a full-color book that features a portion of each song?s lyrics set as a little story, accompanied by Boynton?s irresistible hippos, cows, dogs, and more dogs. Full lyrics appear in the back.

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.
