THE ACTIVITY BOOK THAT BRINGS LETTERS TO LIFE
Watch letters of the alphabet come to life in this hugely imaginative scribble book by Polish graphic designer Jan Bajtlik. Alphadoodler invites children to play with typography, using well-known letterforms to create creepy-crawlies, impossible skyscrapers, a crocodile’s toothy grin, and even ghost letters with toothpaste. Packed full of activities for children to draw, scribble, cut, color, glue, paint, and design, Alphadoodler sees letters camouflaged in a messy bedroom, skiing down a mountain, growing leaves, and leaving the reader pondering: Is an O an octopus without tentacles, or an elephant without a trunk?
In this entertaining and electrifying book, letters bend, break, hide, and slide to become something truly larger than life.

Once upon a time there was a book about . . .
Nope . . . a BUNNY!
A GIANT SCARY TRUCK-EATING BUNNY?!?
Um . . . well, maybe it was a tiny bit big.
From the curious mind of Rowboat Watkins comes a ginormously imaginative story that is as funny as it is philosophical. How big is Big Bunny? And how will this story end? Delightfully meta and humorously subversive, Big Bunnywill take its place as the next go-to story about stories.
Think you know what a taco is? Think again. This hot little book delivers a deliciously new way to "do" Mexican—not just tacos but also antojitos (the "little bites" that are Mexico's variation on tapas), salsas, tequila- and mezcal-based cocktails, and the amazingly thirst-quenching fruit drinks called aguas frescas.
Taking her cue from the taqueros who vend fresh, inventive, lovingly prepared food from roadside stalls in Baja and street-side trucks in Tijuana, author Deborah Schneider shakes up and recombines traditional Mexican flavors in ways that will dazzle your taste buds. Her inspired, quick, easy-to-make dishes include Garlic Shrimp Tacos with Poblano Chiles, Deep-Fried Fish Tacos with Spicy Coleslaw, Lemon-Garlic Chicken Tacos with Mezcal, a vegetarian taco with quesa fresca (fresh cheese), and even a taco stuffed with shredded beef that's been simmered in Coca-Cola.
