The New York Times Book Review called The Beastly Beatitudes of Balthazar B, J. P. Donleavy's hilarious, bittersweet tale of a lost young man's existential odyssey, "a triumphant piece of writing, achieved with that total authority, total mastery which shows that a fine writer is fully extended...." In the years before and after World War II, Balthazar B is the world's last shy, elegant young man. Born to riches in Paris and raised by his governess, Balthazar is shipped off to a British boarding school, where he meets the noble but naughty Beefy. The duo matriculate to Trinity College, Dublin, where Balthazar reads zoology and Beefy prepares for holy orders, all the while sharing amorous adventures high and low, until their university careers come to an abrupt and decidedly unholy end. Written with trademark bravado and a healthy dose of sincerity, The Beastly Beatitudes of Balthazar B is vintage Donleavy.

Vincent Shadow isn't particularly good at sports and is constantly being picked on by his classmates at Central Middle School. But it is Vincent's unusually creative mind that truly separates him from other kids his age. Vincent's top secret attic lab is crammed with toy prototypes --from Liquid Superballs to Bullz-I Basketballs and Sonic Snorkelz--and he has a sketch book filled with drawings of toys he still wants to build. So when a chance encounter with an eccentric toy inventor offers him the opportunity to go from unknown weird kid to toy inventor extraordinaire, Vincent realizes that playtime is over: it's time to get serious about toys. * Vincent Shadow: Toy Inventor was previously titled The Unusual Mind of Vincent Shadow.

My Town contains a mini-community for readers to build ? bringing new meaning to the term "pop-up store!" Unlike typical "paper doll" books that focus on fashion, My Town is full of perforated buildings and animals ready to be popped out, decorated, and played with by children. Buildings range from various styles of houses to all kinds of boutique storefronts. Set up shop as a baker, a florist, a grocer, a bookseller, or an auto mechanic ? there's a store to match every reader's special interest. Dozens of animal characters can be added to the scene and some can be colored in, too. A sturdy fold-out map at the back of the book gives readers a place to arrange their community. Plus, My Town creator Delphine Doreau has prepared a number of free downloads for readers to print, color, and use to expand their towns (address included in book). Instructions are warm and simple and read more like a story than like step-by-step directions, so children will be engaged in reading while they craft. And once completed, the miniature village will complement playtime with beloved toys perfectly ? add cars, stuffed animals, and more!
