Harriet the Spy Anniversary Edition - Hardcover
Fitzhugh, Louise

This special 50th Anniversary Edition of the classic and ground-breaking coming-of-age novel, "Harriet the Spy," includes tributesby Judy Blume, Meg Cabot, Lois Lowry, Rebecca Stead, and many more, as well as a map of Harriet's New York City neighborhood and spy route and original author/editor correspondence.
Using her keen observation skills, 11-year-old Harriet M. Welsch writes down in her notebook what she considers the truth about everyone in and around her New York City neighborhood. When she loses track of her notebook, it ends up in the wrong hands, and before she can stop them, her friends read the sometimes awful things she's observed and written abouteach of them. How can Harriet find a way to keep her integrity and also put her life and her friendships back together?
I don t know of a better novel about the costs and rewards of being a truth teller, nor of any book that made more readers of my generation want to become fiction writers. I love the story of Harriet so much I feel as if I lived it. Jonathan Franzen, author of "Freedom" and "The Corrections

Have You Seen My Dragon?
Light, Steve
Enter a fascinating, ornately drawn cityscape and help a boy find his dragon while counting objects from hot dogs to traffic lights.
In the heart of the city, among the taxis and towers, a small boy travels uptown and down, searching for his friend. Readers will certainly spot the glorious beast, plus an array of big-city icons they can count. Is the dragon taking the crosstown bus, or breathing his fiery breath below a busy street? Maybe he took a taxi to the zoo or is playing with the dogs in the park. Steve Light s masterful pen-and-ink illustrations, decorated with meticulous splashes of color, elevate this counting book (numbers 1 20) to new heights. Maybe the dragon is up there, too!"

The Bunny Burrow Buyers Book
Light, Steve
This saga of a swiftly increasing family of rabbits in search of a new place to call their own, rendered in exquisitely detailed artwork featuring cut-outs and gatefolds, is a perfect book for small children whose families are moving to a new home.
Mr. and Mrs. Rabbit are having baby bunnies, and their burrow-for-two is just too small to accomodate a growing family. Time to call the forest real estate agent! As anyone searching for a new home must, the Rabbits look at a lot of different places, each one appealing in its own way, but none of them quite is right! Will they find the perfect new home to call their own?
A single, black brushstroke that runs through the entire book provides a line that can be traced by little fingers from page to page, and anchors the detailed pen-and-ink style that Steve uses to show the forest homes and the creatures who currently inhabit them--the visible above-ground part of each burrow appears above the line, and the underground portion shows below the line. In addition, circular die cuts in each page allow a peek into the next burrow.
With gorgeous artwork and exquisite production, this lovely little volume makes a fine gift for any new homeowner, and particularly for those with small children.
. according to the US Census Bureau, around 40 million Americans move house each year--and growing families account for a significant percentage of the numbers, as they outgrow their spaces
. preschoolers and elementary-school age kids often feel significant anxiety about moving house; this book helps them anticipate the change with positive feelings"

 Podwal Bookplate & A Passover Haggadah
Wiesel, Marion

Free book plate autographed by Mark Podwal with purchase.

With this Passover Haggadah, Elie Wiesel and his friend Mark Podwal invite you to join them for the Passover Seder -- the most festive event of the Jewish calendar. Read each year at the Seder table, the Haggadah recounts the miraculous tale of the liberation of the Children of Israel from slavery in Egypt, with a celebration of prayer, ritual, and song. Wiesel and Podwal guide you through the Haggadah and share their understanding and faith in a special illustrated edition that will be treasured for years to come.
Accompanying the traditional Haggadah text (which appears here in an accessible new translation) are Elie Wiesel's poetic interpretations, reminiscences, and instructive retellings of ancient legends. The Nobel laureate interweaves past and present as the symbolism of the Seder is explored. Wiesel's commentaries may be read aloud in their entirety or selected passages may be read each year to illuminate the timeless message of this beloved book of redemption.
This volume is enhanced by more than fifty original drawings by Mark Podwal, the artist whom Cynthia Ozick has called a "genius of metaphor through line." Podwal's work not only complements the traditional Haggadah text, as well as Wiesel's poetic voice, but also serves as commentary unto itself. The drawings, with their fresh juxtapositions of insight and revelation, are an innovative contribution to the long tradition of Haggadah illustration.
