Does a Fiddler Crab Fiddle? - Autographed
Roehrig, Artemis

Does A Fiddler Crab Fiddle? No! But fiddler crabs sure do some amazing things!

Starting with silly questions like the title, and moving on through increasingly-unlikely questions such as "do fiddler crabs ride a skateboard?" and "do fiddler crabs eat pizza?" children discover what fiddler crabs do. They don't need a skateboard--they can move sideways so shore birds can't catch them. They may not enjoy pizza, but they gobble up saltmarsh muck.

Using this question-and-answer format engages children immediately, and discovering just what fiddler crabs actually do satisfies their curiosity. This is the best kind of nonfiction--engaging, fun, and filled with the kinds of details that kids love.

Co-authored by award-winning writer Corinne Demas and her science-savvy daughter, Artemis Roehrig, and illustrated by John Sandford, Does A Fiddler Crab Fiddle? will have everyone claw clapping loudly for fiddler crabs!

With its author's note providing more information, Does A Fiddler Crab Fiddle? is an outstanding nonfiction picture book for children ages 4-8.

It’s raining and raining and raining, and Penelope is bored. "What would you do if you had your druthers?" asks her daddy. Well, if Penelope had her druthers, she’d go to the zoo. Or be a cowgirl. Or a pirate captain who sails to the island of dinosaurs, or flies away on a rocket to the moon. If Penelope had her druthers, she’d go off on amazing adventures — but then again, being stuck inside may not be so bad if your daddy is along for the ride!

Edward Hopper Paints His World (with Autographed Wendell Minor Bookplate)
Burleigh, Robert

As a boy, Edward Hopper knew exactly what he wanted to be when he grew up: on the cover of his pencil box, he wrote the words EDWARD HOPPER, WOULD-BE ARTIST. He traveled to New York and to Paris to hone his craft. And even though no one wanted to buy his paintings for a long time, he never stopped believing in his dream to be an artist. He was fascinated with painting light and shadow and his works explore this challenge.

Edward Hopper's story is one of courage, resilience, and determination. In this striking picture book biography, Robert Burleigh and Wendell Minor invite young readers into the world of a truly special American painter (most celebrated for his paintings "Nighthawks" and "Gas").

Flora and Ulysses (Hardcover) - Autographed
DiCamillo, Kate

Winner of the 2014 Newbery Medal

Holy unanticipated occurrences! A cynic meets an unlikely superhero in a genre-breaking novel by master storyteller Kate DiCamillo.

It begins, as the best superhero stories do, with a tragic accident that has unexpected consequences. The squirrel never saw the vacuum cleaner coming, but self-described cynic Flora Belle Buckman, who has read every issue of the comic book Terrible Things Can Happen to You!, is the just the right person to step in and save him. What neither can predict is that Ulysses (the squirrel) has been born anew, with powers of strength, flight, and misspelled poetry -- and that Flora will be changed too, as she discovers the possibility of hope and the promise of a capacious heart. From #1 New York Times best-selling author Kate DiCamillo comes a laugh-out-loud story filled with eccentric, endearing characters and featuring an exciting format -- a novel interspersed with comic-style graphic sequences and full-page illustrations, all rendered in black-and-white by artist K. G. Campbell.

Fraidyzoo - Autographed
Thyra Heder

It's a great day to go to the zoo! As her family hustles to get out the door, Little T lags behind. She's afraid to go back to the zoo; the only trouble is, she can't remember why. As an ingenious solution to help her remember, her mom, dad, and sister construct homemade costumes and act out zoo animals--in alphabetical order, no less! The costumes and scenes grow increasingly elaborate and breathtakingly creative. An umbrella and bubble wrap magically transform into a jellyfish, bath towels and a can of soda become a parrot, and many, many more. At the end of the day, Little T has conquered her fear and no longer feels like a "fraidyzoo."
In this charming, witty picture book debut, Thyra Heder honors the bravery it takes to face your fears, and the loving people who help you do so.
Praise for Fraidyzoo
STARRED REVIEWS
"WARNING: Expect riotous buffoonery after reading this clever and original alphabet story, as kids will definitely want to "parrot" the examples."
--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Debut talent Heder comes up with a wildly imaginative idea for an alphabet book/animal guessing game, elaborates it with smartly drafted ink-and-watercolor spreads, and seasons it with plenty of family warmth and hullaballoo."
--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"The cut-and-paste, handmade look and feel of this picture book underscores its thematic ode to creative problem solving... The charming, detailed watercolor and ink illustrations really tell the story, and children will relish poring over them to guess the animal costumes and identify their construction materials."
--School Library Journal

"Heder tells a child-relevant story about facing your fears with a light hand and zippy prose, but it's her art that dials the zippiness up to 11, as her warm and humorously realistic figures gallivant alongside some remarkably envisioned handcrafted animal puppets."
--Booklist

"This book does the impossible, taking one of the oldest children's book conventions, the zoo alphabet, and completely reinventing it. It's a story about a family helping one of their own overcome fear by being utterly silly and completely loving. The whole thing is done with such a confident and lively style, it's hard to believe that this is Heder's first picture book. Fraidyzoo is funny, original, and announces Heder as a force to be reckoned with."
--The Atlantic Wire

"Illustrations capture the empathy of a very concerned, loving, and creative family."
--Library Media Connection
