Book Review
What if you were a baby bat, and one fateful day you slipped from your mother's grasp and fell smack-dab into a bird's nest? This happens to little Stellaluna, and her world is literally turned upside down. This adorable, 5-inch-tall, high-quality plush bat, based on Janell Cannon's award-winning Stellaluna, can hang upside down off of your finger if you Velcro her feet together. You can also make her flap around freely with her exquisitely crafted wings that boast a 14-inch wingspan. If she's tired after a long day of playing, she can even fold her wings around herself! (Velcro dots keep the wings closed.) Big, brown, soulful eyes and tiny, white, behind-the-ear tufts make this little Stellaluna completely irresistible. (All ages)

Alice's Adventures In Wonderland
Robert Sabuda

October 2003
Pop Up Book
·
 
From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 6-Sabuda brings Alice's world to life with breathtaking, three-dimensional images that are incredibly imaginative, intricately detailed, and perfectly executed. Carroll's text has been significantly abridged, and although some scenes are a bit choppy, the quickly paced narrative retains the flavor of the original. Sabuda's illustrations pay homage to John Tenniel's artwork, while providing a fresh look at the story and offering details that add greatly to the reading experience. The events unfold in six glorious spreads, each featuring a large pop-up and a narrow booklet that opens into several pages containing the text as well as additional pop-ups. The first scene depicts Alice and her sister on the riverbank, and the faces of several Wonderland characters are camouflaged among the...

Sock Monkeys: (200 out of 1,863)
Arne Svenson (Photographer)
0972211128
January 2002
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
In 1985 Ron Warren began collecting sock monkeys--those icons of American thrift and inventiveness that for generations have been hand-stitched from a pair of red-heel work socks. Years later he met photographer Arne Svenson, who, intrigued by the obsessive nature and growing size of the collection, began with equal obsession to document one by one its more than 1,800 examples. To convey the distinct personality imbued in each monkey by its maker, Svenson photographs them in the manner of classical black-and-white portraiture: flatteringly lit, cropped at the shoulders, eyes to the camera. The first 200 of these sock monkey portraits, reproduced larger than life as full-page duotones, are assembled in this book. Invited contributors, including novelists Jonathan Safran Foer, Neil Gaiman, and Dale Peck; entertainers...

Mad Cow USA : Could the Nightmare Happen Here
Sheldon Rampton, John Stauber
1567511112
September 1997
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
Mad Cow U.S.A. is not the book to read before you go out for a steak. In fact, it's not really a book to read before eating anything; this chronicle of government cave-in to pressure from the food industry just might scare away your appetite. Authors Sheldon Rampton and John Stauber argue that both the American and British governments colluded with beef producers to suppress important facts about interspecies transmission of bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or "mad cow disease"--facts that might have prevented gruesome deaths. Could a British-style BSE epidemic happen in America? In a 1996 TV talk show, Oprah Winfrey attempted to ask the same question, only to find herself slapped with a lawsuit by a group of Texas cattlemen. Their grounds: the so-called agricultural product disparagement laws currently...

Postmodern Pooh
Frederick Crews
0865476543
January 2003
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
In 1964, a young English professor at Berkeley published The Pooh Perplex, a slim academic satire purporting to collect a dozen critical essays on Winnie-the-Pooh. Insightful and searingly funny, it took academia by storm and gave the humanities a much-needed poke in the ribs. Little known then, Crews would become a highly influential cultural critic, whose humor and clarity leaven many books more serious than Pooh. Now, concluding a "long if uneventful career of devotion to humanistic values and to Pooh," Crews has issued a sequel, which is, if possible, more trenchant and hilarious than the original. This is partly circumstantial, the English Lit profession having become more self-parodying than ever. In 11 sham essays (complete with footnotes of brilliantly chosen actual texts), Crews takes on deconstruction,...
