Grace Coddington, Michael Roberts Host Book Signing at London’s Smythson Store

BOOK SIGNING: “There’s a slight familiarity with Gingernutz — she’s me,” said Grace Coddington at the London book signing of “GingerNutz: The Jungle Memoir of a Model Orangutan” on Thursday evening.
Held at the Smythson store on New Bond Street, British designers including Erdem Moralioğlu, E. Tautz owner and creative director Patrick Grant and Stephen Jones were among the guests who turned up to show support.
Coddington recalled the first time she encountered the main character — illustrated by longtime friend Michael Roberts — and thought she was so cute. Roberts had drawn a series of illustrations from the point of view of a baby orangutan and depicted the little ape’s journey navigating the fashion world. Alongside her book, Coddington will also be contributing to the December issue of British Vogue.
“I have already contributed,” Coddington said. “And I can’t wait for it to come out. I’ve only done one and it’s at the early stages. Edward [Enninful] loved it and that’s the main thing. I loved it. I’m very happy with it. It’s a surprise.”
While Coddington, couldn’t divulge too many details, she noted that working with British Vogue’s new editor in chief was a great experience. “We’re friends so we go back

Donald Robertson Celebrates New Book, “Donald”, in London

AMERICAN HUSTLE: “Somebody told me tonight that this book is just a very expensive business card,” joked Donald Robertson, signing copies of his book, “Donald – The Book,” at its launch at Maison Assouline on Piccadilly in London Friday night. “And it really is, it’s got all my stuff in it so I don’t even need to hustle [for work] so much anymore.”
Robertson — Estée Lauder’s creative director who is famous for his handpainted handbags and his Instagram account, Drawbertson, where he posts images of his fashion-centric artworks to over 190,000 followers — came to the book deal with Assouline through less-than orthodox means.
“I was at Bergdorf’s, standing there painting on bags, and I was, like, ‘I want a book cover; I want a book [deal]. I’m just going to paint on the Valentino book.’ So I just started painting on the covers, put my name on it, but it said Valentino on the side, so I put the hashtag, ‘Kiss My Assouline’.

Guo Pei to Be Focus of SCAD Exhibition and Upcoming Rizzoli Book

EXHIBIT SET: The Savannah College of Art & Design has confirmed the dates for what will be Guo Pei’s first solo museum exhibition.
The show will bow Sept. 7 at SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film in Atlanta, and will feature 30 of the designer’s intricate gowns, footwear and accessories, including the imperial yellow gown worn by Rihanna at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala in 2015. Although the musician and designer have not collaborated since that most-photographed choice, the blizzard of publicity their pairing established two years ago introduced Pei’s work to millions.
SCAD is counting on a New York-based creative collective HOWL that includes three photographers who are alumni — Jim Lind, Patrick O’Brien and Elliot Ross — to capture Pei’s designs in a monograph. The fourth member Forest Woodward is the only non-SCAD graduate. While individually the lensmen have worked with Patagonia, Carhartt and National Geographic, among other well-known brands, this is the four-year-old group’s first major fashion undertaking. Due out in December by Rizzoli, the book will also be a first for the designer. Along with photos of archival pieces, there will be a total of 44 images including some shot on old plantations such

Rodial’s Maria Hatzistefanis Releases Book in the U.K.

SUCCESS SECRETS: Maria Hatzistefanis, founder and chief executive officer of the indie British beauty label Rodial — and social media maven — is looking to connect with her growing audience in new ways and has launched her first book.
Titled “How to Be an Overnight Success,” (Ebury Press) the book looks at Hatzistefanis’ journey to create a global beauty brand.
“The aim is to encourage everyone to follow their dreams; whether it’s someone starting their first job, people looking to take their careers to the next level or take a different turn and start their own businesses,” said Hatzistefanis.
The book takes the reader through stages of Hatzistefanis’ career, and each chapter ends with general business advice that anyone can apply to their respective cases.
It also offers up anecdotes about all the mishaps she encountered over the years. She talks about running around the Westfield mall at the last minute, desperate to find a nude bra ahead of a shoot with Kylie Jenner. Jenner had been acting as brand ambassador for the company’s lower-priced range Nip + Fab.
Looking back, Hatzistefanis said she learned how important it was to gain perspective. “I was so stressed, and looking back I realize that whatever I was

Here’s What The First ‘Harry Potter’ Book Looks Like Around The World

In its 20 years on this planet Earth, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone — or Philosopher’s, if you’re British — has been officially translated into 68 languages (and unofficially even more than that).

Naturally, some aspects of J.K. Rowling’s characters and plot require a bit of finessing so they make sense in languages other than her native English. The verbal clues that help readers imagine the school houses of Slytherin and Ravenclaw, for example, turn into “Serpentard” and “Serrdaigle” (roughly “snake” and “eagle talon”) in French. In German, “The Mirror of Erised” becomes “Der Spiegel Nerhegeb” — “nerhegeb” being the German word for “desire” spelled backwards.

Character names aren’t safe from alteration in translation, either. Buckbeak the Hippogriff becomes “Hardodziób,” roughly meaning “haughty beak,” in Poland. In Iceland, Crookshanks the cat becomes “Skakklappi,” or “crook-legged.” The wayward owl Pigwidgeon simply is “Kvík” in Slovak, or “squeak.”

Rowling’s affinity for puns requires some smart work on the part of the translator, as well; in a recent discussion over whether Ron Weasley and Lavender Brown ever had sex on the “Harry Potter” sub-Reddit board, users mused over the differences in translation over a scene during Divination class. After Lavender realizes she’s found Uranus, Ron requests whether he can “see Uranus, too.” Oh, ho, ho — but for readers in other languages to get the joke, the pun had to be altered somewhat, from “Uranus” to simply a “heavenly body” (that Ron would like to see, too). Ten points to the translator who had to finesse that one.

The text isn’t the only thing that has changed as the story of “Harry Potter” traveled from country to country. Various publishers chose to stray from the American cover illustrated by Mary GrandPré or the U.K. version created by Thomas Taylor, while others did not. Here are 21 magical covers from the first “Harry Potter” book that stole our hearts.

Influence Peddler: Sofía Sanchez de Betak Piles Travels Into Collection, Book

PARIS — Sofía Sanchez de Betak has been up since 4 a.m., following a 12-hour flight from Japan. She is bare-faced, her hair is damp and she is wearing a tent dress made from old bed sheets.
It’s her first day in her new temporary Paris digs — she and her husband, show producer Alexandre de Betak, are staying in his Paris office while their home is being renovated — and she is still finding her bearings. Despite all this, she looks effortlessly gorgeous — a walking affront to any Instagram filter.
An art director and graphic designer by training, the Buenos Aires-born influencer known as Chufy — with 123,000 followers on Instagram — is something of a professional globe-trotter. Her innate sense of style has led her to work with brands including Barneys, Chloé, Chanel, Hogan and Zara.
Now she has parlayed her passion into her own fashion line, also called Chufy, which she designs with local artists and artisans from around the world. The first collection is comprised of around 25 clothing and accessory designs, in addition to 15 pieces of jewelry, with prices ranging from $ 495 for a shirt to $ 2,890 for riding boots.

Amazon’s Grip On The Book World Could Silence The Stories That Matter

This morning, Amazon ― the online bookseller-turned-everything store ― opened the doors to its latest brick-and-mortar outpost in New York City’s Columbus Circle. The company added in-person retail to its arsenal of buying options in 2015, when it opened a store in Seattle. Beginning today, it occupies a space where a Borders once was.

Unlike its competitors ― which mostly include independent bookstores, after the company’s rise lead to the fall of Borders and many Barnes & Noble locations ― Amazon’s physical bookstore relies on sales data to determine which titles will be prominently displayed. At the Columbus Circle location, a table labeled “Highly Rated: 4.8 Stars & Above” sits near the entrance. On it, are such titles as 100 Days of Real Food: Fast & Fabulous: The Easy and Delicious Way to Cut Out Processed Food by Lisa Leake and Cravings: Recipes for All the Food You Want to Eat by Chrissy Teigen.

For publishers, especially those who support the work of emerging authors, disempowered authors or authors whose voices aren’t in chorus with the mainstream, this data-based approach to bookselling is disconcerting.

Michael Reynolds, the editor-in-chief of Europa Editions, told HuffPost that Amazon’s ratings-based system isn’t conducive to discovering writers like the lyrical, wave-making Elena Ferrante, whom Europa publishes.

“Things like Tolstoy are going to have lower ratings than the new book by the new YouTube star.
Dennis Johnson, co-publisher of Melville House Books

“While a new bookstore, any new bookstore, is generally good news, I can’t see how Amazon applying its unsatisfactory recommendation engine to a physical space is going to result in the kind of discovery experience a reader has when she enters any good brick-and-mortar store,” Reynolds said. “It is certainly not going to help with bringing about the kind of bibliodiversity that, with authors like Elena Ferrante, Muriel Barbery, Boualem Sansal and Domenico Starnone, we seek to cultivate, and that I think is more important today than ever.”

Dennis Johnson, the co-publisher of Melville House, agreed. “Things like Tolstoy are going to have lower ratings than the new book by the new YouTube star,” he told HuffPost. “Real literature is slowly not going to be available there.”

Caroline Casey, the managing director of Coffee House Press, was more optimistic about readers’ appetite for well-told stories, and the tenacity of indie presses.

“I don’t expect [Amazon’s] experiments to damage independent bookstores, because what people value them for isn’t replicable in the Amazon model,” she told HuffPost. “So those booksellers, who are our very best advocates and sell our books better than I ever could hope to, should be fine. And so will we.”

Coffee House Press describes itself as “committed to diversity and inclusion,” and that mission statement is reflected in the titles it publishes, including Valeria Luiselli’s The Story of My Teeth, Saeed Jones’s Prelude to Bruise and Jade Sharma’s Problems. Casey says that while a “significant portion” of Coffee Houses’ sales come from Amazon, she doesn’t expect the seller’s physical locations to have either a positive or negative impact. Instead, she expects that indie bookstores will continue to account for most of the press’ in-person sales.

“A good bookstore offers not just curation, but also personality and the opportunity not [just] to find what you want, but to also find out what you want,” Casey said. “Amazon might have a lot of customer data, but it’s not the kind that yields a surprising, joyful bookstore visit.”

The decision to open brick-and-mortar stores isn’t the only recent change Amazon has made to its bookselling approach. Last month, the retailer tweaked its online buying options, so that publishers are no longer automatically granted the right to be listed as the default sellers for their titles. Instead, third-party retailers are now allowed to compete to become a book’s default seller. So, prime real estate on the site is often granted to those with the lowest costs.

Casey declined to comment on this new development. But, Johnson and Reynolds agreed that the move could hurt publishers and, consequently, authors, who aren’t owed a cut of the sale from third-party distributors.

I cannot be anything but concerned by Amazon’s insistence on chipping away at the perceived and actual value of books.
Michael Reynolds, Editor-in-Chief of Europa Editions

“The Amazon paradigm sees books as a function of a hyper-competitive market rather than cultural products that create a market, shape it, and at times disrupt it,” Reynolds said. “The most recent development concerning Amazon’s buy box will make it increasingly difficult for authors to be paid adequately for their work when it is sold through Amazon, and for publishers to invest in bringing new and diverse voices to the market and maintaining a robust backlist. As a publisher animated by an abiding belief in the broad and lasting value not only of books but of ‘bibliodiversity,’ I cannot be anything but concerned by Amazon’s insistence on chipping away at the perceived and actual value of books.”

“It’s another instance of Amazon killing the goose that lays the eggs,” Johnson said. “Screwing their partners in the ecosystem that naturally grows around any kind of product. What they’re doing now is something that nobody makes any money from, except Amazon.”

And it’s not just indie presses who could suffer from Amazon’s business decisions. In fact, Johnson said that Melville House ― which only relies on Amazon for around 25 percent of its sales ― will likely fare better than big-five publishers such as Random House, which leans on Amazon to sell classics and other backlist titles.

“This is treacherous for everybody in the business,” Johnson said. “Everybody’s threatened by this.”

“Amazon is nothing if not Trumpian in their behavior,” he continued. “The ruthlessness, the naked capitalism. It’s all there. They’re positively Trumpian. They have that in them.”

In A Bold New Book, Earth Is Left Uninhabitable By War

Lidia Yuknavitch’s latest novel, The Book of Joan, pays homage to a figure who’s inspired the author since her Catholic upbringing: a woman and a martyr, Joan of Arc. In an interview with The Rumpus, Yuknavitch explained how the historic idol allowed her to turn her suffering into “something more like girl power,” and her novel makes that personal connection clear.

Honoring the story of 1400s Joan, Yuknavitch’s book follows another Joan on a near-future expedition. As a girl, she learns that she’s intimately connected with Earth, down to her anatomy, which includes a blue light that emits from her forehead, coinciding, it seems, with the planet’s pain. As war happens ― suddenly and everywhere ― child soldiers are enlisted, and Joan’s oneness with the natural world is used as a weapon. She also discovers she has the power to bring the dead back to life, for a short time.

These skills turn her into a symbol of hope, one the tyrannical Jean de Men aims to destroy. The dictator reins over CIEL, a space home inhabited by humans whose skin has lost its pigmentation and whose genitals have become shriveled and useless. In this new society, there are no books, only stories branded onto skin through a process called grafting.

One expert grafter, Christine (after Christine de Pizan, a medieval writer who criticized poet Jean de Meun’s work about courtly love), wears Joan’s story and believes that, although Joan was burned alive, she’s still living and thriving somewhere down on Earth. She hopes to lead a coup against Jean de Men, who’s working to restore human genitalia not for pleasure, but for reproduction.

Meanwhile, Joan roams Earth with Leone ― her closest friend ― exploring deep caves where life thrives in the form of worms and bugs. Yuknavitch’s stellar prose is most alive here, when she’s lovingly describing the natural world ― its beauty and brutality.

As a story, The Book of Joan is something new altogether. The characters moralize. They give speeches, they lay out their philosophical views, and they seldom act in ways that contradict their beliefs. So, the effect is like that of reading a comic book ― or medieval text ― infused with lines of perfect poetry. There are heroes and villains. The heroes act heroically, and the villains, corrupted by power, enact evil deeds without remorse. Jean de Men’s “gross train of flesh [is] splayed out on the floor.” His voice is “reptilian.” “He aims his words with measured venom.”

This is not a conventional approach to contemporary literature or science fiction; both genres aim to create characters who are as morally complex as most humans. (Individuals are large, remember? They contain multitudes.) But, Yuknavitch isn’t a conventional writer, and has, in fact, devoted her career to rethinking conventions.

She runs a writing workshop called Corporeal Writing, where budding authors’ intuitions are valued and where politically engaged work is encouraged. In the description for one of the courses, the program’s site reads, “A cohesive narrative can happen any number of ways.  It can be an accumulation of fragments, it can be kaleidoscopic, it can by lyric, braided, circular, vertical, visual, it can be arranged as a palimpsest.”

Kaleidoscopic, lyric ― these words nicely fit Yuknavitch’s style, which is especially suited to the passages wherein Christine is telling the story of Joan, who, to her, is a symbol of hope.

But, aside from her descriptions of her heroes, her fantasies, and her beliefs, we’re not given access to Christine’s life on CIEL. This book will appeal less to readers interested in worldbuilding and in individuals navigating future social systems ― a la Ursula K. Le Guin, more anthropologist than philosopher. It is, instead, an homage to an idol, an ode to a way of life, and a warning about mistreating the earth and each other. All of that’s wrapped up in a voice that’s uniquely Yuknavitch’s, which is worth reading for alone.  

The bottom line:

More poetic creed than conventional story, The Book of Joan shows off Yuknavitch’s imagination and her gift for crafting sonorous sentences.

Who wrote it:

Lidia Yuknavitch is the author of The Chronology of Water and The Small Backs of Children, which we named one of HuffPost’s Best Books of 2015.

Who will read it:

Anyone interested in fiction that grapples with gender, climate change or near-future scenarios.

What other reviewers think:

The New York Times: “Telling the truth with precision and rage and a visionary’s eye, using both realism and fabulism, is one way to break through the white noise of a consumerist culture that tries to commodify post-apocalyptic fiction, to render it safe.”

LARB: “Perhaps it is only ‘natural’ that in a book that brings together so many different strains of history, literature, theory, and even science, some parts are bound to contradict others.”

NPR: “Yuknavitch is a bold and ecstatic writer, wallowing in sex and filth and decay and violence and nature and love with equal relish.”

Opening lines:

“Burning is an art.”

Notable passage:

“Leone, whose small heart had a defect at birth, who carried a heart that started out in a pig. Xenotransplantation and Leone had become Joan’s favorite words. Xenotransplantation represented a change in the distance between people and animals in a way she loved. Leone represented Leone, just Leone, Leone.”

Subscription YA Book Box Reflects The Dynamism Of Young Black Women

While black Americans are regularly left out of mainstream literary landscapes, when we are afforded racial representation, it’s sometimes limited to tiresome archetypes and narratives. 

Personal trainer, vlogger and mother Maria Stuart has created an antidote to this issue, at least within the young adult (YA) genre with Red.Blk.Grl., a subscription box she launched on April 1. She’s one of many black entrepreneurs who’ve recently made efforts to make quality books more accessible to the black community. 

“Black girls deserve to read about themselves in books,” she told the Huffington Post on Monday. “I want to reach all the bookworms, be they teens or adults and put black YA books written by black women in their hands.”

The Red.Blk.Grl. box, which currently has 85 subscribers and is targeted towards young black girls, contains one book as well as additional products, which can be anything self-care items to snacks, that are inspired by the book’s themes. Stuart did a soft launch of the box in January by creating an Instagram account to see if people would respond to the concept of Red.Blk.Grl.

To emphasize the necessity of the box, Stuart, who is also an aspiring YA writer, mentioned a study conducted by the Cooperative Children’s Book Center (CCBC). According to CCBC, only 278 of the 3,400 children’s books published in 2016 were about black characters. Only 33 percent of those books were by black authors. 

“Representation matters… In high school, there is much assigned reading in literature classes, and [black girls] have no choice over what they read,” she said.

“I recall having a strong desire to find a book with characters that truly felt and thought like me,” she continued. “I often could find something close to it, but there was a constant sense that something was missing from books where none of the characters were black.”

But in some YA books that do contain black characters, Stuart said the themes are often repetitive. 

“I think the typical idea when it comes to black YA are things like escaping slavery, overcoming Jim Crow or even gritty urban tales filled with drugs and sex,” Stuart said. “I want to offer more contemporary books that still deal with realities of life, but also that offer sci-fi and afro-futurism,” she continued. “Each book selected must have main characters who demonstrate resilience, who are or learn to be self-reliant.”

Trump Urges Twitter Followers To Read A Completely Blank Book

On Monday, at 8:13 a.m., President Donald Trump published a surprising tweet. Surprising for two reasons, in fact: Firstly, it recommended a book of “Reasons to Vote for Democrats” to his followers, and secondly, it recommended a book.

Had the president been hacked? What could account for such an uncharacteristic tweet?

Not to worry ― it all makes complete sense. Reasons to Vote for Democrats: A Comprehensive Guide by Michael J. Knowles is neither pro-Democrat nor, in the traditional sense, a book. It’s a 266-page volume filled with empty pages. (Get it? There are no reasons to vote for Democrats!)

Knowles, who brought out Reasons to Vote for Democrats in February, is hardly the first to use this old gag ― even in this election cycle. For example, back in November, Why Trump Deserves Trust, Respect and Admiration by David King became available on Amazon.

“This book is full of blank pages,” the description says. “Despite years of research, we could not find anything to say on this subject.”

The author includes a helpful hint for what to do with all the clean, unused pages inside: “Please feel free to use this book for notes.” Good idea! Here’s hoping the trees that were pulped for these joke books were not chopped down in vain.

Reasons to Vote for Democrats, despite being completely free of content, has been a top seller on Amazon for weeks. Thousands of consumers have snapped up $ 6 paperback copies, and the author, 26-year-old Knowles, was invited on “Fox and Friends” in March to discuss his creation.

Setting aside the president’s deliberate trolling of the Democratic Party ― of which a significant percentage of his constituents identify as members ― Trump’s ringing endorsement of a book without any words beyond the table of contents struck some as almost too on-the-nose, given his notorious inability to name any books he has read all the way through. 

Knowing what we know about Trump’s reading habits, it’s little wonder he might define “reading enjoyment” as “not having to read any words” ― now we just have confirmation.

Superman Blames Batman for Everything in Injustice 2 Prequel Comic Book Series

The comic is a digital-first series that releases weekly chapters online every Tuesday (starting April 11) and will be released in print each month (starting on May 1 for the first issue).

The story of the first game, Injustice: Gods Among Us, showed an alternate world ruled by a tyrant Superman driven to the dark side by the grief of losing his wife Lois and their unborn child, all thanks to an attack by the Joker. The comic explored the five years between when this tragic incident happened and when Superman took rule over the world. It showed how Batman tried to stop him, with each side enlisting the help of various heroes and villains, and the many twists, turns, and deaths along the way.

A Farm Boy Meets His Prince In A Beautiful New Children’s Book

A powerful new children’s book is telling the story of a farm boy and prince who meet, build a friendship and eventually fall in love in the face of adversity. 

Promised Land, by authors Adam Reynolds and Chaz Harris, borrows elements from classic fairy tales and utilizes them in a queer and empowering framework. Not only is the book presenting a same-sex love story in an accessible and understandable way, but it also bucks the “damsel in distress” narrative by having the central female character, a queen, be the one to save herself. 

“The [kinds of media] we consume as kids and young adults form our attitudes towards those around us,” Harris told The Huffington Post. “Most importantly, they influence our attitudes towards ourselves. If you don’t see yourself in stories, you don’t see yourself in the world and I believe that lack of visibility creates the kind of ‘otherness’ we often experience as LGBTQ+ people. If we can be heroes in stories, we’re seen more positively in the real world.”

The book, which is set in a kingdom where all people are equal no matter what they look like or who they love, is also dedicated to those affected by the Pulse nightclub massacre that killed 49 queer people, most of color, and their allies in June 2016.

“I remember when Ellen spoke at the vigil of Matthew Shepard and said ‘This is what I was trying to stop!’ Harris continued. “That was how it felt to us. After it was reported the man responsible for the Pulse massacre had said the image of two men kissing disgusted him so much that it had motivated the attack, our book ends with that image. We felt it was important that the lives that we lost could be forever remembered with a message of love and hope.”

As for the future, Harris and Reynolds both hope to continue producing work that tells diverse and queer stories.

“We do hope to be able to bring more stories to life that feature protagonists beyond gay characters, that just seemed the most obvious starting point for us,” Reynolds told HuffPost. “We’d likely do this in collaboration with writers who represent those authentic voices though. Why not? There’s a whole Kingdom to explore!”

A pre-oder of the paperback edition of Promised Land is now available.

Dan Rather To Write A Book On ‘What Unites Us’

Dan Rather has just announced that he’ll be writing a book of essays on “what patriotism looks like.” It’ll be called What Unites Us.

The book will be published by Algonquin and is slated for release this November.

The venerated television journalist ― who is currently 85 years old ― has only grown in popularity in recent years, particularly with his recent commentary on President Donald Trump.

Rather took to Facebook on Thursday to share his thoughts on the essay collection and what he wants it to tell the American people. 

“We live in turbulent and disorienting times,” Rather writes.

He says he’s been writing the book in conjunction with the “daily (or even minute by minute) news cycle” and has “tried to step back for a wider perspective.”

“I want to share my sense of the basic tenets that I see as the foundation of the country I hold so dear. It is patriotism, as I define it, not as a divisive cudgel but a common purpose. It is also a patriotism that will not ignore the sins of our nation, but challenge them honestly and head on. So in the book, I will be exploring themes that I see as fundamental to holding together this great experiment in democracy. It is ‘What Unites Us,’ the title I [sic] given to the book.”

Most intriguingly, Rather says he hopes that “some of the spirit we have created here on Facebook” can continue on in his essays. He simply has to finish writing them.

You can read his whole message on Facebook below:

What Unites Us is currently available for pre-order and will be available wherever books are sold on Nov. 7.

The Struggle To Figure Out How A Song In A Kids’ Book Really Goes

Sometimes when you read a book to a child, you reach a part that’s meant to be sung. But what do you do when you don’t know the intended tune and don’t see any sheet music on the page?

According to the funny moms of the BreakWomb, you just make it up.

In their latest comedy video, the ladies debate the merits of their various musical interpretations of children’s book songs.

Let’s just say there’s quite a bit of variety in melody, tempo and tone. Clearly, they need a little guidance from Sandra Boynton herself … or this helpful CD.

The Handy Answer Book for Kids (and Parents)

The Handy Answer Book for Kids (and Parents)


Anyone who has ever been a kid, raised a kid, or spent any time with kids knows that asking questions is a critical part of being a kid. Questions are how kids find out about the world, and they deserve answers. But the truth is, adults don’t always know the answers. THE HANDY ANSWER BOOK FOR KIDS is a launching pad for inquisitive young minds and a life raft for parents who are at their wits’ end. This is a book that every parent needs, and every kid will covet. It answers 800 questions such as. Is there life on Mars? Can astronauts drink soda in space? Is there a man in the Moon? Do rivers ever dry up? What does the government do? What is the president’s job? Why are there wars? How much oil is there left in the world? Why do people work? Why do horses sleep standing up? Why do flies like cow poop? Is there such a thing as a funny bone? What’s an Achilles heel? Is it easier for my face to laugh or frown? What is DNA? Why doesn’t it hurt to cut my hair? How do you stop a brain freeze? Why do I have to brush my teeth? Why do people sometimes burp? What causes a hiccup? What are allergies? Why do people need sleep? Why do zebras have stripes? How do frogs make their load croaking sound? Why do leaves change color in the autumn? How do elevators work? How do airplanes fly? How does the Internet work?

Kim Kardashian And Chrissy Teigen Want You To Join Their Book Club

If you like to read books recommended by celebrities, boy, do we have some good news for you.

Kim Kardashian and Chrissy Teigen are starting their own club with celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin. The three will, from the sound of it, pass the honor of choosing a title between them, although how often they’ll do this is unclear.

In any case, Kardashian is up first. She’s chosen Embraced by the Light by Betty Eadie, a 1992 book that hit The New York Times best-seller list for several weeks in the early ‘90s. It chronicles Eadie’s experience of her Nov. 19, 1973, hysterectomy, when the 31-year-old grief counselor died and met Jesus in heaven before doctors brought her back to life.

The book ― the author’s first of several on near-death experiences ― offers “astonishing proof of life after physical death,” according to publisher Penguin Random House. The New York Times noted in a 1993 piece that although the topic “initially seemed a bit far out to many members of Manhattan’s decidedly cynical publishing world,” it became a rousing success through word of mouth, and Eadie’s personal appearances in some places drew “crowds so large that the traffic clogged the highways for miles around.”

Kardashian broke the news over Twitter, between tweets sharing crowdfunding pages for critically injured or deceased children.

And yes, everyone is invited, the reality star added

Teigen stepped in to clarify that all you have to do to take part is read the book. 

Whether the trio will debut a website for the club or offer questions for readers to discuss among themselves (perhaps over Twitter?) is yet to be announced.

Embraced by the Light is available through Penguin Random House and Amazon.

Seth the Explorer Book II

Seth the Explorer Book II


Seth embarks on his second hunting trip to try and bring food back for his family after his father leaves to go overseas on a business trip. Seth is 12 years old and must become the man of the family in order to provide for his mother and himself. Seth must hide and run from bears out in the wilderness as he tries to hunt deer, chicken, and turkeys. This time Seth is more prepared for his journey. Seth sets up camp in Grey’s Canyon where he will hunt the following day. He starts a fire and sets up his tree stand in a much better hiding place than he had on his previous hunting trips. Seth would be able to see a further distance now and could tell when animals were approaching him. The best part was that he would have a shot at them without moving. Him moving is what scared many of the animals away before he could shoot them on his first hunting trip. He was very focused and ready for the challenge ahead of him. Seth killed a couple of deer and had to gut them and pull out the meet that his mother could clean and cook. He kept a bucket with all of the meat in it that he had captured throughout his day. Seth saw many animals and was able to have a much better hunting trip on his second time around than he did the first time. He also avoided the bears for the most part that second day as he only saw five bears along his journey. Would Seth make it home safely from his second hunting trip or would the trip be prolonged and extended so he could catch more animals and get some meat for his family? Read book II to find out. Here is an excerpt from the book.”The morning had finally come and Tim was awake before his mother woke him up. He work up at 4:00am. Once again his mother decided to fix him a big breakfast along with his daily glass of chocolate milk. Tim wanted to make sure that he was well rested and nourished for the trip that he was about to go on.

The Boy in the Book

The Boy in the Book


When Nathan discovered a job lot of the first 106 adventures for sale on eBay, there was never any question that he would place a bid. When the books arrived, he lost himself in the old adventures. Yet, as he flicked through the pages, there was another story being written. In the margins of each book were the scribblings of the little boy who had once owned them, a little boy by the name of Terence John Prendergast. Terence wrote jokes and hints for adventurers following the same stories as him. More troubling, among the notes were intimations of a tormented childhood: of the boys and teachers who bullied him; of the things he hated about himself and had to improve; of his thoughts of suicide and his desperate need to find friends, be liked, and find somebody – anybody – to confide in. THE BOY IN THE BOOK is Nathan’s poignant recreation of the discovery of the fragments of Terence Prendergast’s diary, his quest to find the lost boy, and the friendship that resulted from their first meeting. In doing so, Nathan is forced to examine his own childhood – and, as his relationship with Terence deepens, he begins to believe that the two men are not so different, and to reflect on the darkness that can exist in childhood.

Run Billy Boy Run, Book Four: Billy Boy


Book Four: Billy Boy of the Run Billy Boy Run series details the life of fugitive William (Billy) Boy Burk, and his high-profile run from the law. Included is the original crime which began Billy’s run from justice, his eventual arrest, and his subsequent escape. While on the lam, Billy holds up Honest Melvin’s Jewelry and Pawn where we meet mild-mannered Melvin Zimmerman and Honest Melvin’s not-so-dainty bride. In the aftermath Billy turns stowaway and ends up in Grand Canyon National Park. In the Canyon our fugitive experiences both failure and success while masquerading as an Irish priest and later as a park ranger. Also, twenty years into the future a riddle is solved when a son opens his deceased father’s safe deposit box – a riddle that began in the Grand Canyon of the Colorado River.
