Elmer the elephant is bright-colored patchwork all over. No wonder the other elephants laugh at him! If he were ordinary elephant color, the others might stop laughing. That would make Elmer feel better, wouldn't it? The surprising conclusion of David McKee's comical fable is a celebration of individuality and the power of laughter. Elmer the elephant, a colorful character because of his patchwork hide and sense of humor, tries to blend in with the herd, but soon realizes that he's happiest just being himself. "McKee's gentle humor and love of irony are in full force in this celebration of individuality and laughter." -- Publisher's Weekly.

Kill the Next One
Author: Federico Axat
Publisher: Mulholland Books
An audacious psychological thriller where nothing is what it seems. Ted McKay had it all: a beautiful wife, two daughters, a high-paying job. But after being diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor he finds himself with a gun to his temple, ready to pull the trigger. Then the doorbell rings. A stranger makes him a proposition: why not kill two deserving men before dying? The first target is a criminal, and the second is a man with terminal cancer who, like Ted, wants to die. After executing these kills, Ted will become someone else's next target, like a kind of suicidal daisy chain. Ted understands the stranger's logic: it's easier for a victim's family to deal with a murder than with a suicide. However, as Ted commits the murders, the crime scenes strike him as odd. The targets know him by name and possess familiar mementos. Even more bizarrely, Ted recognizes locations and men he shouldn't know. As Ted's mind begins to crack, dark secrets from his past seep through the fissures. Kill the Next One is an immersive psychological thriller from an exciting new voice.

Back in the Fall of 2001, Klutz created The Fabulous Book of Paper Dolls, and it's a good thing we did. Almost 800,000 copies later, we are happy to say we have given it a brand-new face without messing with the time-tested content. These paper people wear their clothes with the help of reusable, press-on, peel-off adhesive dots -- no tabs! The dolls, clothes, and accessories are perforated, ready to pop right out and play. Six reversible paper dolls in a variety of skin tones come with the book. Half of them have pre-printed faces, and the other half are ready to be customized. There are bunches of reversible clothes, shoes, and hairstyles that make exactly one jillion different combinations. (We counted.) Of course, any fashion expert will tell you that accessories are the key to snappy dressing, so we've provided plenty of them, from hats to sunglasses to soccer balls to tiaras. To round out the family, three baby paper dolls and a few paper pets are also included. Artists from around the globe were commissioned to create six beautifully illustrated backdrop scenes. Prop open the book to one, and your dolls are transported to a beach, ballroom, theatrical stage, neighborhood park, winter wonderland, or only-slightly-messy kids' bedroom. In the back of the book is a nifty portfolio-pocket armoire, providing plenty of wrinkle-free storage for the dolls, clothes, and accessories after they've been punched out. The Fabulous Book of Paper Dolls is a fabulous introduction to a classic activity -- now freshened up for a whole new generation.
