Casey At the Bat

“And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout;
But there is no joy in Mudville—mighty Casey has struck out.”

Since its debut in 1888, that closing couplet has continued to echo down the decades. The ballad about a puffed-up 19th-century sports superstar quickly caught on with an America ready to elect Baseball the national pastime, and its position as an everlasting classic was instantly secured—safe at home, you might say.

This book is a wonderful read-aloud for parents of the very young, a rich visual adventure for current kid players, and a great gift for baseball-fans of all ages; a timeless comic melodrama about the whiff heard ’round the world!

Sticks ‘n Stones ‘n Dinosaur Bones

The first book in our Unhinged History series is a ripping yarn. Full of adventure and deceit, it brings to life the best-known spat in all of paleontology: the bitter rivalry between Edward Drinker Cope and Othniel Charles Marsh. This frenzy of discovery and one-upmanship—known today as the “Bone Wars”—was a gold rush–like scramble to find the most and “best” dinosaur fossils, and bring glory to their home-base universities. Lively and witty rhymes plus wonderfully demented illustrations reveal how the paleontologists’ feud began, and how—despite their obsession with outdoing one another—Cope and Marsh nevertheless made genuine and lasting contributions to the field.

MAX’S BOX: Letting Go of Negative Feelings

Max’s parents give him a very special gift; a tiny box that can hold absolutely everything. Max soon learns, however, that feelings can’t be put away as easily as toys. As each negative emotion—anger, embarrassment, sadness, loneliness—gets added to his box, it grows and grows, eventually becoming so large that it keeps him from doing the things he love, like riding his bike and climbing trees. With help from friends and family, Max turns the box into something beautiful and lets it go. A Parents’ Guide explains how well-intentioned adults often encourage children, especially young boys, to ignore and “put away” their feelings instead of learning to fully live with them. Simple, powerful illustrations become more colorful and vibrant as Max moves out from his box’s shadow.
