By J.M. Hirsch

Longing for more than yet another limp salad? Tired of tussling with the kids over junk food lunch kits? Sounds like you’ve got the lunch box blues. J. M. Hirsch has the fix.

But it isn’t a cookbook. Because when it comes to lunch, nobody has time to break out a recipe to bang out a brown bag special. Busy people need lunch ideas. Lots of them. And those ideas need to be healthy, fast, easy, affordable, and delicious.

That’s what Beating the Lunch Box Blues is—an idea book to inspire anyone daunted by the daily ordeal of packing lunch. Jammed with nearly 200 photos and more than 500 tips and meals, this book is designed to save families time, money, and their sanity.

Whether you want to jazz up a grilled cheese, turn leftover steak into a DIY taco kit, or make pizza “sushi,” Hirsch has it covered. And because the best lunches often are built from the leftovers of great suppers, he has also included 30 fast and flavorful dinner recipes designed to make enough for tomorrow, too. Crazy good stuff like short ribs braised in a Rosemary-Port Sauce, Hoisin-Glazed Meatloaf, and kid-friendly classics such as Turkey Sloppy Joes and American Chop Suey.

With ideas this easy and this delicious, there’s no reason to let the lunch box blues get you down.

Paperback book containing 208 pages.

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.

Celebrate the NHL's most amazing stats, records and achievements! With a contemporary design and loads of incredible photographs, NHL themes and logos, and fantastic hockey writing, Records Forever: Hockey's Unbeatable Achievements is a must-have for any hockey fan!

Hockey fans love records. They love to see what player holds the record for most points, most goals, the greatest number of assists and most amount of penalty minutes. Each season, there is a new points leader and records created one year are surpassed another. But for some players and teams, their achievements are so great that their record is considered next to unbeatable!

Just a few unbeatable achievements:

  • To better Wayne Gretzky's 2,857 career points would require that a player have 29 consecutive 100 point seasons.
  • Buffalo Sabres scoring 9 goals in a single period - when will that happen again?
  • George Hainsworth's 22 shut-outs in a single season - with today's sharpshooters, protecting a win, let alone a shutout, let alone 22 shutouts in a season, is an incredible challenge!

by "Dino" Don Lessim, Illustrated by Franco Tempesta

In the crowded field of dinosaur books, this is the very first to offer children ages 7 to 10—those at the height of their enthusiasm for the prehistoric giants—complete coverage of all the known dinosaurs. Don Lessem, author of more than 60 books—most of them about dinosaurs—teams up with Franco Tempesta, a talented illustrator with a fresh and appealing style. The exciting result is an accessible, visually stunning book that’s packed with facts that kids can use to impress their friends and families. The Ultimate Dinopedia is organized by the periods that are well known to young enthusiasts: Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous. It includes almost every dinosaur ever discovered, and highlights 125 species that scientists know sufficiently to describe in rich detail. Special features include How We Know What They Looked Like, Baby Dinosaurs, Great Dinosaur Goofs, and much more. Every featured dino gets a fact box that delivers important information at a glance—Scientific Name, Discoverer, Place and Date of Discovery, Length, Habitat, Diet, Fossils, Fun Facts, and Range Map. This book provides—in fabulously illustrated, kid-friendly form—all the information an 8-year-old fact hound needs to lord that knowledge over parents and teachers!
