Hang on to yer hat, Cowboy.

Yeeeee-hah! Boynton goes Country! With three Gold Record albums and a Grammy nomination to her credit, Boynton now brings you FROG TROUBLE, a terrific CD and illustrated songbook of her new and wildly original Country songs. And they’re sung by a truly amazing roster of Country Music’s biggest and brightest stars: Here’s Brad Paisley with Copycat, Dwight Yoakam singing I’ve Got a Dog, Alison Krauss on End of a Summer Storm, Ben Folds rocking Broken Piano, Darius Rucker with Beautiful Baby.

You’ve got yourself some mighty fine music, with a whole lot of gumption and heart.

If you liked Gallop! A Scanimation Book, you'll love the magical journey that is Safari. Readers, as if on safari, encounter 8 wild animals that come alive! Using an innovative lenticular-based technology, precision sliding lenses, and original four-color video imagery, each image is like a 3-D movie on the page, delivering a rich, fluid, immersive visual experience. The cheetah bounds. The gazelle leaps. The African elephant snaps its ears. The gorilla munches the leaves off a branch. Mesmerizing!

Accompanying the images is Safari, the guide: It begins with an evocative journal of a safari along the Mara River in Kenya and interweaves the history of safaris. Then for each animal there is a lively, informative essay and an at-a-glance list of important facts. It's the romance of being on safari - and the almost visceral thrill of seeing the animals in motion - in a book unlike any other.

When a tiny fish shoots into view wearing a round blue topper (which happens to fit him perfectly), trouble could be following close behind. So it’s a good thing that enormous fish won’t wake up. And even if he does, it’s not like he’ll ever know what happened. . . . Visual humour swims to the fore as the best-selling Jon Klassen follows his breakout debut with another deadpan-funny tale.

Poor Dick and Sally. It's cold and wet and they're stuck in the house with nothing to do...until a giant cat in a hat shows up, transforming the dull day into a madcap adventure and almost wrecking the place in the process! Written by Dr. Seuss in 1957 in response to concerns about growing illiteracy among children, The Cat in the Hat (the first Random House Beginner Book) changed the way our children learn how to read!

In 1957, Seuss's The Cat in the Hat became the prototype for the best-selling series, Beginner Books. This popular series combined engaging stories with outrageous illustrations and playful sounds to teach basic reading skills. Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss has charmed his way into the consciousness of 4 generations of youngsters and parents. Help your kids learn to read the Dr. Seuss way!

Winner of the 1957 Association for Childhood Education International Books for Children Bibliography Award, and the 1957 Horn Book Children's Classics Award.

By Roch Carrier, Illustrated by Sheldon Cohen

First published in 1979 in a collection of adult stories, Roch Carrier's The Hockey Sweater is now firmly established as a Canadian classic! Basing the story on his own childhood growing up in St. Justine, Quebec, in the 1940s, Carrier describes the passion that he and his friends had for hockey, and particularly for the exploits of hockey great Maurice "The Rocket" Richard of the Montreal Canadiens. Roch and his friends all have red Canadiens sweaters emblazoned with Richard's famous number 9. When Roch outgrows his sweater, his mother orders him a new one from Eaton's in Montreal. The sweater that arrives 2 weeks later, though, isn't a Canadiens sweater but the blue-and-white sweater of the Toronto Maple Leafs, which Roch can't imagine wearing under any circumstances! But wear the Leafs sweater he must, with hilarious consequences. Sheldon Cohen's warm, rich illustrations are a perfect match for Carrier's exuberant text.

It's the Grazers vs Biters exciting soccer match! When veggie-nibbling Grazers and meat-munching Biters take to the soccer field, it’s a showdown of prehistoric proportions. Diplodocus shows an herbivore’s soft touch and strikes first for the Grazers. But Gallimimus takes a pass from the twin Pterodactyls on the wings and finishes it off to even things up for the Biters. In the second half, Apatosaur scores the go-ahead goal for the veggie-side, but then a brawl results in red cards for both teams. Hungry to tie the game, Biter Allosaurus takes advantage. Now it’s 2-2, setting up the teeth-gnashing, claw-curling final minutes. . . .

This hardcover book includes bright illustraions that seem to jump out of the pages, easy text for a beginner or near beginner reader and 32 pages of dinosaur vs dinosaur fun!

Measures approximately 11" long x 9" wide.
