New Seuss!

New York, NY (February 18, 2015)—An original manuscript with accompanying sketches by Dr. Seuss, aka Ted Geisel, which was discovered in the La Jolla, California home of the late beloved children’s author will be published by Random House Children’s Books, it was announced today by Barbara Marcus, President & Publisher, and Susan Brandt, President, Licensing and Marketing, Dr. Seuss Enterprises, L.P. WHAT PET SHOULD I GET? will be published on July 28, 2015.
A box filled with pages of text and sketches was found shortly after Ted’s death in 1991 when his widow Audrey Geisel was remodeling her home. At that time it was set aside with other of Ted’s materials. It was rediscovered in the fall of 2013 by Mrs. Geisel and Claudia Prescott—Ted Geisel’s longtime secretary and friend—when they were cleaning out his office space. They reviewed the materials, finding the full text and illustrations for WHAT PET SHOULD I GET?

Highly Anticipating - If I Had a Triceratops by George O'Connor

If I Had a Triceratops by George O'Connor
Expected Publication Date: February 10th, 2015
Publisher: Candlewick Press
Page Count: 32 pages
Ages: 4-7 years old

With deft visual humor, a "New York Times" best-selling author-illustrator imagines how awesome it would be to have a pet triceratops living in your backyard. Wouldn't it be great to have a triceratops for a pet? If you had one, it would probably be your best friend. It would always want to play with you, and it would always know how you're feeling. On dark and stormy nights, if your triceratops got scared, you could let it sleep in your room. True, a triceratops is a little on the huge side, but that just means more pet to love, and more pet to love you right back Just imagine your very own pet triceratops running out to greet you at the end of the day. "Ooof "Wouldn't that be the best thing "ever"?

Why We Can't Wait: O'Connor's If I Had a Raptor won us over with the first page, and we have no doubt that his newest will do the same. Written in a similar fashion to If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, O'Connor's dinosaur stories are hilarious and adorable. With lovely, pastel illustrations, the images are just as fantastic as the words. We're sure If I Had a Triceratops will not disappoint!

Books Inc. Kids Review - Yoda: The Story of a Cat and His Kittens by Beth Stern and David Crane

Yoda: The Story of a Cat and His Kittens by Beth Stern & David Crane, Illustrated by K. A. Alistir
Publication Date: November 18th, 2014
Publisher: Aladdin Paperbacks
Genre: Picture Books
Ages: 4-8

From the author of the "New York Times "bestselling "Oh My Dog" comes the true story of Yoda, a very special cat--and adorable Instagram sensation--rescued by Beth and Howard Stern.
When Beth first met Yoda at the animal shelter, he was skinny and his fur was matted. He hid in the back of his cage and wanted nothing to do with anyone. But Beth chose Yoda. She took him home, cleaned him up, and gave him love.
Beth fosters kittens, too, and before long Yoda discovered them--and his life purpose. Now he's happy, and fluffy, and very, very busy. He makes sure the orphan kittens eat, he keeps them safe, and he even cleans up after them. Yoda acts like a father" and" mother to the foster kittens that fill his home, and taking care of others has helped him too: even though Yoda has a serious heart condition, he's made a miraculous turnaround, and is healthier than doctors thought he could be.
To further the important work that Beth does on behalf of animals, all of her proceeds from this book will be donated to North Shore Animal League America's Bianca's Furry Friends campaign.

Beth Stern, wife of Howard, is a very involved animal adoption activist. She first met Yoda, a Persian cat, at the animal shelter. He was skinny with matted fur and had a bad heart. His prognosis was bleak. He didn't think he would ever be adopted. He watched as all the other cats went to new homes. Beth fosters kittens at her home. She took a liking to Yoda and adopted him. Shortly after adopting him, he heard a big commotion in another room. He went to investigate and what should he find but KITTENS! He took it upon himself to be their adopted Dad. He looked after them,cleaned them, taught them how to be safe and to groom themselves. All of this gave Yoda a new purpose and lease on life. His spirit and his health started to improve. He is still going strong, is happy, loved by his family and the kittens are loved by Yoda.

All proceeds from the sales of this book will be donated to North Shore Animal League America's Bianca's Furry Friends Campaign. North Shore Animal League America is the largest no-kill,rescue, and adoption organization in the World.
