OHhhh....We Cannot Wait!  Look Who is Coming AME DYCKMAN Reading from and signing her new picture book. One day, a boy and a robot meet in the woods. They play. They have fun. But when Bot gets switched off, Boy thinks he's sick. The usual remedies—applesauce, reading a story—don't help, so Boy tucks the sick Bot in, then falls asleep. Bot is worried when he powers on and finds his friend powered off. He takes Boy home with him and tries all his remedies: oil, reading an instruction manual. Nothing revives the malfunctioning Boy! Can the Inventor help fix him? Using the perfect blend of sweetness and humor, this story of an adorable duo will win the hearts of the very youngest readers. About the Author AME DYCKMAN lives in New Jersey with her husband and daughter. This is her first book. DAN YACCARINO is an internationally acclaimed author-illustrator with more than 30 books to his credit. Dan is also the creator of the animated TV series Oswald. He lives in New York City with his wife and two children. Praise for Boy and Bot… Starred Review, Booklist, April 1, 2012: "“The final, nearly wordless pages, with snapshots of the friends at play, are priceless.” Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, February 15, 2012: “Dyckman’s debut offers pitch-perfect pacing and gentle humor…. as Boy and Bot would say, it’s ‘affirmative’ that this book will be a hit.” Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, February 6, 2012: “Dyckman’s pared-down prose gives the role-reversal story just enough drama, humor, and robot-inflected dialogue…to keep children entertained for many re-readings.” Review, The New York Times Book Review (online edition), April 11, 2012: “It’s a perfectly adorable, age-appropriate friendship. And it’s simply impossible to imagine a 4-year-old boy not wanting to be friends with this book.”

Welcome To The Clinton Book Shop ARLENE M. COLEMAN Four year old Martin calls his Nana on the phone with a surprise. What evolves is a marvelous game they play together, created solely from imagination.  In this age of technology when so many youngsters occupy their time playing games on computers, iPods, cell phones and other electronic devices, please encourage them to come up with something to entertain themselves other than said devices. You'll be surprised at the things they come up with. Let yourself be a kid again and play along for just a while and you'll be amazed at the fun you'll have with them and the closeness you'll develop. Arlene Coleman aka Nana

Our Celebration Of Books For Children Continues With MATT LUCKHURST Description In this humorous twist on a classic tale, Paul Bunyan and his best friend, Babe the Blue Ox, leave life on the farm to work for a logger who pays them with their favorite thing: pancakes! Paul and Babe tromp across the country with the logger, filling valleys with pancake batter (forming the Rocky Mountains) and chasing down pancakes blown away by the wind (creating the Grand Canyon). But when Babe starts to feel sick from eating too many pancakes, the two realize that maybe the farm, with its variety of foods, is really the best place for them after all. The engaging typography and illustrations, combined with the humorous and lighthearted tone, show kids the importance of eating their veggies without giving heavy-handed lessons. An author’s note explains the origins of the Paul Bunyan story. About the Author Matt Luckhurst, a descendant of Canadian loggers, is originally from Nanaimo, British Columbia. He is a graduate of the School of Visual Arts MFA design program. This is his first picture book. He lives in Brooklyn.
