Alison Jackson: Stern Portfolio (Stern Fotografie Portfolio)
Best price for this book: $ 8.2
can actually be true: Could it all really be a deluded projection of our own mundane lives? Is loneliness and disconnection at the heart of wanting to come close to our famous "friends?" Why are we so curious about people we'll probably never meet--whose whole existence might just be a carefully constructed performance?

I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie (Picture Puffins)
Best price for this book: $ 5.39
And with that the feast begins! After the pie the old lady swallows a whole squash, all of the salad, and the entire turkey! As Mother and Father watch in shock, the two children are delighted to see the old lady growing fatter and fatter. And, in the end, the old lady makes a surprising and humorous contribution to the holiday festivities.
"Jackson draws on some traditional Thanksgiving foods to give a familiar rhyme new zing. Schachner's exuberant, cartoon-style illustrations . . . catch the comedy splendidly!" --Booklist
"Schachner's watercolor illustrations are absolutely delightful. Children will find lots to examine and enjoy in these expressive pictures, particularly the repeated appearances of the woman's fluffy white cat." --School Library Journal
When the Wind Blew
Best price for this book: $ 3.64
We all know the story of the old woman who lived in a shoe with her many children. But not everyone knows about the day when the wind blew very hard, and an unexpected guest arrived (cradle and all), setting off a chain of events that involves the three little kittens, Jack and Jill, Little Bo Peep, Little Boy Blue, and many other beloved characters from nursery rhymes. Can the old woman restore order to their world and still manage to get her children to bed on time? But, of course!
This is a follow-up to Alison Jackson's strong-selling If the Shoe Fits, told with the same whimsy and charm.

If the Shoe Fits
Best price for this book: $ 16.95
There was an old woman
who lived in a shoe.
She had so many children,
she didn't know what to do.
She gave them some broth
without any bread,
Then took them to live
in a new home instead.
Too messy, too woolly, too noisy, too small. Whether it's Humpty Dumpty's wall or Mother Hubbard's cupboard, the old woman (who once lived in a shoe) and her children (who once lived there, too) just can't seem to find a new home big enough for their growing needs. So where will they turn for a cozy night's rest? The perfect place is only a step away -- no moving van required!
Desert Rose and Her Highfalutin Hog
Best price for this book: $ 3.99
When gritty pig farmer Desert Rose finds a gold nugget just a-lyin' there in the mud, she decides to buy herself the biggest, fattest hog she can find. But getting that highfalutin hog home in time for the Laredo state fair proves to be more than Rose bargained for. When a cold-hearted coyote, a persnickety snake, a lethargic Texas longhorn, and a whole host of other southern varmints prove to be unhelpful, Rose must pair up with a shrewd armadillo to get every animal over the river and off to Laredo in time.

Thea decides to plant some old bean seeds and watch them grow as her science project. And grow they do?into a giant beanstalk. Savvy young readers will recognize elements from the classic ?Jack? fairy tale, such as a harp and golden egg, but the haughty grown-ups that Thea writes to for help do not. Thea receives letters and comical advice from a plethora of dim ?experts,? ranging from botanist to symphony conductor to zoologist. Thea?s Tree playfully combines curriculum areas, including science, language arts, and storytelling into a clever tale kids will love.
