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. The lonesome-cowboy title track is performed by the low-voiced moody rocker Mark Lanegan (yes, of Queens of the Stone Age.) Add Josh Turner, Fountains of Wayne, Ryan Adams, Linda Eder, and quickly rising Country star Kacey Musgraves—all accompanied by Nashville’s finest instrumentalists, and WHOA. You’ve got yourself some mighty fine music, with a whole lot of gumption and heart.

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.

By Dr. Seuss

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.

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.

By Barbara Reid

The innovative illustrator Barbara Reid's wonderfully colourful, softly three-dimensional Plasticine artwork comes to life in a fresh interpretation of a classic song in this picture book. Replete with cheerful animal couples, a benevolent Noah and his smiling wife, Two by Two captures the childish imagination with a plethora of witty details, familiar, lively rhymes and the almost pop-up quality of the kinetic, sculpted drawings. To save his family from the flood Noah builds a huge ark to hold all the animals. No ark since Noah's own has shown such colour and diversity of life as that of Barbara Reid and her plasticine animals.
