The Wide-Mouthed Frog: A Pop-up Book
Keith Faulkner
0803718756
March 1996
Pop Up Book
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
A curious frog goes a bit too far when querying his neighbors about their eating habits in this simplified, pop-up version of a traditional American tale. "I'm a wide-mouthed frog and I eat flies," he announces, demonstrating in flamboyant, 3-D splendor just how he got the appellation "wide-mouthed." Each spread features a different animal describing its meal of choice, including a blue-feathered bird (worms and slugs), a furry brown mouse (seeds and berries) and, finally, ominously, a big, green alligator. The creatures are depicted in sunny colors and and show off uncomplicated but large, well-constructed pop-up beaks, whiskers and snouts. When the alligator answers that he eats "delicious wide-mouthed frogs," Frog's comical response, resulting in a climactic fold-out "Splash!" will have readers giggling aloud....


My Personal Best: Life Lessons from an All-American Journey
John Wooden
0071437924
April 2004
Hardcover
·
 
From Booklist
John Wooden, whose UCLA Bruins won 10 NCAA titles in 12 years, is the greatest college basketball coach of all time. Wooden has lived his life with quiet dignity and integrity. The "life lessons" he presents here are less about basketball than about incorporating some of that dignity and integrity into one's own life. Certainly basketball fans will find a trove of wonderful anecdotes in these pages; after all, teaching the game was Wooden's life's work, and he illustrates many of his points with examples from his coaching career. Let's face it: there isn't much here that readers haven't heard a thousand times: work hard, be honest, value your family, have faith, and live by the Golden Rule. Still, college basketball fans will treasure the context Wooden brings to the familiar pieties. Wes Lukowsky

Book Review's Best of 2001
Jonathan Franzen's exhilarating novel The Corrections tells a spellbinding story with sexy comic brio, and evokes a quirky family akin to Anne Tyler's, only bitter. Franzen's great at describing Christmas homecomings gone awry, cruise-ship follies, self-deluded academics, breast-obsessed screenwriters, stodgy old farts and edgy Tribeca bohemians equally at sea in their lives, and the mad, bad, dangerous worlds of the Internet boom and the fissioning post-Soviet East.

All five members of the Lambert family get their due, as everybody's lives swirl out of control. Paterfamilias Alfred is slipping into dementia, even as one of his inventions inspires a pharmaceutical giant to revolutionize treatment of his disease. His stubborn wife, Enid, specializes in denial; so do their kids, each in an idiosyncratic...

From Booklist
Sixteen-year-old Australian exchange student Louise (Lou) is ecstatic that she has left behind her rough family, who mock her for using big words, and their tiny flat choked with cigarette smoke. Placed in a wealthy Chicago suburb, in a pristine McMansion with the Harding family, Lou is stunned by the glossy perfection: "There are so many healthy, good-looking teenagers that a few crooked teeth, or short, fat fingers, suddenly take on the proportions of deformities." The Hardings are earnest and warm, but Lou's high-strung insecurity and wary independence begin to widen the cracks in her host family's strained domesticity, particularly when Lou turns increasingly to booze and drugs. Hyland's debut loses momentum as it drifts to its open ending. But Lou's furious, first-person voice is filled with piercing observations...

PreS-Gr 2-When a young cub hears a mysterious rumbling noise in the middle of the night, his imagination runs wild. As he thinks about some of the creatures capable of creating such a racket, his cries for "Dad!" become louder and louder. No one comes to the rescue. Finally, Teddy climbs out of bed, opens the door to his parents' room, and discovers that the terrifying sound is only his father snoring. Large and colorful pop-ups take center stage here. Each monster that Teddy imagines jumps up as a bigger-than-life, 3-D paper sculpture. A scary lion opens its mouth wide, a garishly green gorilla reaches out with hairy arms, a yellow-eyed elephant lifts its huge trunk, and an enormous rhinoceros raises its spiky horn. Meanwhile, the bear is shown cowering under his covers, his smaller size and position off to...

From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 1?In this modern pourquoi story, a grubby, egotistical pig?the very first in the world?compares his fine, long nose to those of other long-nosed creatures?the anteater's furry one, the swordfish's scaly one, and the toucan's colorful one. So proud is he of this feature that he carries it high in the air, smacks into a tree, and, ever after, all pigs have short, wrinkly snouts. Each of the long noses?the pig's is a full seven inches?pop out from the centerfold and straight at readers, creating strange perspectives in a lap-reading situation. The pig is depicted as a charming, self-satisfied animal in the bright, eye-catching illustrations. The final fold-out of the pig's head with distressed piggy eyes and flattened snout is a funny, startling 20 inches in diameter?perhaps a tad frightening to...

Review
A well-put-together biography which...goes a long way towards plumbing the depths of an `unfathomed' swordsman with `a working brain'. ENGLISH HISTORICAL REVIEW An important study... A careful analysis of Lambert's motivation, his attachment to kinship, his military standing and his approach to religion. NORTHERN HISTORY A fine new biography....shows impressive command of both primary and secondary sources, and places Lambert within the context of his times most effectively. HISTORICAL JOURNAL

John Lambert's life and career have long deserved this revealing study. The man who made Cromwell Lord Protector in 1653 also stopped him becoming king in 1657; and Lambert was the originator of the Instrument of Government, on which Cromwell's Protectorate was based. Committed...

From School Library Journal
PreSchool-K-Santa is looking everywhere for his lead reindeer, the one with the red nose. But because he's wearing no glasses or the wrong glasses or dirty glasses or the room is steamy, he keeps mistaking round, red objects for the missing animal. Readers are treated to super-sized pop-ups with each opening of a gatefold page, revealing a tree with ornaments, a cake with cherries, and a red-nosed rabbit. Finally the reindeer appears, with a gift for Santa: spiffy new glasses (with red frames, naturally). With them, Santa says he'll "-be able to find all the children and make sure they have gifts on Christmas morning." Bold, stylized illustrations literally burst off the sturdy pages, which, when fully opened, may easily extend across three laps.-S. P.Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Book Review
Did the clothes make Jackie, or did Jackie make the clothes? Decide for yourself: Jacqueline Kennedy: The White House Years is a stunning catalog of some of Jacqueline Kennedy's most important dresses as worn during her years as first lady of the United States. As visually sleek and elegant as Mrs. Kennedy herself, the book offers a beautiful analysis of the stunning, simple outfits that typified the Jackie style and brought a breath of sleek modernity to the White House after the somewhat frumpy fussiness of previous first lady Bess Truman. Released to coincide with the 40th anniversary of Kennedy's "emergence" as a style icon, the book presents an eclectic selection of suits, evening dresses, daywear, and accessories from the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum collection. Divided into cities where each item was first worn,...
