Authors:
Esta Spalding

Sydney Smith
Kim Fitzgerald-Trout took to driving with ease--as most children would if their parents would ever let them try. She had to. After all, she and her siblings live in a car.Meet the Fitzgerald-Trouts, a band of four loosely related children living together in a lush tropical island. They take care of themselves. They sleep in their car, bathe in the ocean, eat fish they catch and fruit they pick, and can drive anywhere they need to go--to the school, the laundromat, or the drive-in. If they put their minds to it, the Fitzgerald-Trouts can do anything. Even, they hope, find a real home. Award-winning poet and screenwriter Esta Spalding's exciting middle grade debut establishes a marvelous place where children fend for themselves, and adults only seem to ruin everything. This extraordinary world is brought to vibrant life by Sydney Smith, the celebrated artist behind Sidewalk Flowers.

    Les Marchés Francais

    By Brian DeFehr
    Authors:
    Brian DeFehr
    This luscious cookbook was inspired by the unparalleled experience of shopping the open-air markets of Paris. Author Brian DeFehr was raised on the prairies of Canada and struck out to greener pastures in Winnipeg, Chicago, Montreal, and finally landed in Paris, where he developed an appreciation for the French way of shopping the markets, being in tune with the seasons, and allowing the flavors of an exceptionally delicious country to influence what's for dinner. The star of any French book, though, is always France itself: from the bright and clear ocean flavors of the coastal Mediterranean and the Germanic influences in Alsace and Lorraine to the rich comfort foods and cheeses from the mountainous regions near the Alps, the familiar foie gras and cassoulet of Bordeaux, and the piquant Basque flavors closer to Spain in the South, stirred together in the cosmopolitan melting pot of the City of Light---all of this and more, in 75 glorious dishes. They all happen to be gluten-free, inspired by seasonal market produce, and you'd never guess how healthy they are.Photographer Pauline Boldt has shot every dish in the book, along with atmospheric market shots, ingredient, and process shots. The recipes are inherently simple, focusing on good-quality produce, meats, and clear flavors, and the French mystique is ever present. Its aim is to take the reader on a tour of the best markets Paris has to offer, seasoned with culinary traditions from across France, without ever leaving your kitchen or armchair.

    The smash-hit satirical bestseller - a number-one film office hit in Germany, to be launched worldwide on NetflixBerlin, Summer 2011. Adolf Hitler wakes up on a patch of open ground, alive and well. Things have changed - no Eva Braun, no Nazi party, no war.

The unthinkable, the inevitable happens, and the ranting Hitler goes viral, becomes a YouTube star, gets his own T.V. show, and people begin to listen. But the Führer has another programme with even greater ambition - to set the country he finds a shambles back to rights. Look Who's Back stunned and then thrilled 1.5 million German readers with its fearless approach to the most taboo of subjects. Naive yet insightful, repellent yet strangely sympathetic, the revived Hitler unquestionably has a spring in his step.
